With limited man hours available how does one guarantee they are effectively disinfecting?
Answer - you probably can’t by continuing with your current cleaning procedures. Wipes, trigger sprayers, and cloths are labor intensive but more importantly complete coverage underneath tables, chairs, and shelves is difficult to obtain.
The use of an electrostatic sprayer provides a precise application of disinfectants and complete coverage top and bottom.
The difference between Disinfection, Sanitation, and Sterilization:
Uses antimicrobial agents on non-living objects or surfaces to destroy or inactivate microorganisms. Disinfectants may not kill all bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores. Most disinfectants are weakened or inactivated by organic matter such as dirt and feces.
Example of disinfecting - removal of heavy debris by dry sweeping and or use of high volume hose or pressure washing. Application of sanitizing solution then let dry.
Uses an antimicrobial agent on objects, surfaces or living tissue to reduce the number of disease-causing organisms to non-threatening levels. Sanitizing does not affect some spores and viruses.
Example of sanitation - removal of heavy debris by scrubbing, sweeping, or high volume hose or pressure washing. Application of detergent, rinse, application of sanitizer (Chlorine or other type), rinse with high volume hose or pressure washing.
Sterilization is using chemicals, temperature, gas and/or pressure to kill or inactivate all disease-causing bacteria, spores, fungi and viruses.
Examples of sterilization - remove heavy debris by sweeping or high volume hose or pressure washing. Rinse with water and detergent. Incinerate debris and apply either ethylene oxide, hydrogen peroxide, or similar product. Alternative method is to clean surfaces using steam.
How Electrostatic Sprayers Work
By positively charging droplets of liquid they naturally seek out surfaces to adhere to. The positive charge makes the droplet electrically stronger than the surface or the item you are treating. Just like magnets, they are drawn to each other and attach when one surface is more positively charged than the other. In simple terms when you spray a solution that is charged with electrostatics, the solution will surround the object.
