What is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Health and hygiene have always been at the core of leading a safe, healthy, disease-free life. As pollutants and contaminants surround us, maintaining this health and hygiene through regular cleaning, disinfection, and sanitization has become more essential than ever. However, how effective are the regular methods of cleaning and disinfection that we’ve been following for as long as we can remember?

When it comes to cleaning and disinfection, the most we do is dust and wipe the surface. But is that enough to get rid of all the bacteria, viruses, and other harmful pathogens lurking around? How do you know that the mops and other cleaning equipment you’re using are themselves clean or not? Moreover, what about those corners and curves and all the places that are extremely hard and almost impossible places to reach? How do you clean and disinfect them?

All these questions raise concern that your cleaning methods are not as effective as they seem and your offices and facilities may be at risk after all. But the technology has advanced and so have the ways for cleaning your facilities.

It’s clear that the traditional methods don’t work well, and that brings us to looking for more efficient ways for cleaning and disinfection, one of the best being Electrostatic Disinfection.

What is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Electrostatic disinfection is an advanced cleaning and disinfection method that uses electric charges to clean and disinfect surfaces by getting rid of the bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens breeding over them.

The method basically involves spraying a strong disinfectant over the surfaces using a different kind of spray bottle called the electrostatic sprayer. This sprayer is designed with an electrode placed inside its nozzle. Once you fill the disinfectant solution in this sprayer, the electrode charges up the solution with a positive charge. As the disinfectant is sprayed over the surfaces, it covers the negatively charged surfaces, thereby attacking harmful pathogens and contaminants breeding on them.

With that, it becomes easier to clean and disinfect all the places in your facilities and offices in no time and even without actually touching the surfaces considering the fact that the disinfectant coats the surfaces and automatically dries on them, thereby leaving out the task of having to wipe clean the surfaces after the spraying.

However, is just spraying the surfaces enough? How does electrostatic disinfection work exactly to ensure that your premises are free of any risks of harmful pathogens and microbes? Well, let’s understand the same in the next part of this article.

How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?

The electrostatic technology has been around for quite some time because of its ability to efficiently and evenly cover surfaces, even the ones that are extremely hard to reach. It’s this ability of the technology that makes electrostatic disinfection work the way it does.

Once your distinction solution is charged with positive particles, all you need to do is spray it over the surfaces. The solution will identify the negatively charged particles, attract them, and stick to them, thereby forming a strong disinfection coating on the surfaces. This disinfecting coating will kill the bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens stuck to the surfaces.

Moreover, the surfaces with a positive charge will repel any more spray, thereby making sure that less of your resources, energy, and effort is wasted in cleaning and disinfection.

However, to make sure that electrostatic disinfection works, you need to use a very strong disinfectant solution; else, even this brilliant method shall not be able to completely kill and wipe out the harmful pathogens lurking around on the surfaces you constantly come in contact with.

In a nutshell, the electrostatic charge and the disinfectant solution both work in tandem with each other. So, you need to be sure that both are strong and efficient, and with that, you shall be able to achieve amazing cleaning and disinfection in your facilities.

But the question is, how effective is it? Well, let’s have a look!

How Effective is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Well, by the looks of it, electrostatic disinfection seems extremely effective, and it sure is. The method has some major benefits such as:

  1. It makes it possible to clean and disinfect even the impossible to reach areas and surfaces.
  2. It allows the safer, touchless cleaning and disinfection activity since the solution doesn’t need to be wiped off the surfaces.
  3. It makes sure that all the bacteria, viruses, and other disease-causing pathogens are eliminated from the surroundings.
  4. It saves time and even allows cleaning and disinfection to be done more efficiently but with lesser effort.

Considering all these benefits and the way it reaches every area possible, thereby eliminating all the risks of bacteria and pathogens in your surroundings and leaving your facilities and premises clean and sanitary, it’s a proven fact that electrostatic disinfection is extremely effective and efficient and something everyone must put in practice.
