What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?


Electrostatic spray surface cleaning is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spray uses a specialized solution that is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains positively charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they’re aimed at.

For awkwardly shaped objects or hard to reach places, cleaning staff only have to point and spray; the nature of the mist allows it to coat surfaces evenly, and envelope objects—even if the mist is only sprayed from one side. After the spray is applied, the sanitizing agent works to disinfect the covered surfaces. For this reason, electrostatic spray is an excellent solution for germ and contaminant ridden areas.

How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?

Electrostatic spray is electrically charged, allowing the appropriate sanitizers, mold preventatives and disinfectants to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces for a more complete clean. As the chemical exits the electrostatic sprayer, it’s given a positive electrical charge. The droplets then become attracted to all negative surfaces, covering the visible area, underside and backside, with the sanitizing agent. Surfaces that are already covered will repel the spray, making the method extremely efficient.

Is Electrostatic Spray Disinfection Right For My Business?

If your building contains rooms or areas that are sensitive to grime and germs, such as R&D facilities or clean rooms, then yes, electrostatic spray cleaning is the best option for cleaning all the surfaces and equipment in that room. Although electrostatic spray may sound like an aggressive method for regular commercial cleaning applications, the opposite is true.

The main features and benefits of electrostatic spray disinfection include1:

  • Reduces the time it takes to cover and disinfect all surfaces and hard-to-reach places by 50% compared to conventional methods 
  • Improves infection control and the spread of viruses such as influenza, MRSA, HIV and many others 
  • Applies chemicals in a more efficient, controlled manner, eliminating the dangers of overuse 
  • Prevents costly financial burdens associated with contagious healthcare infections 

For desktops, floors and walls that need to be absolutely spotless, electrostatic spray cleaning is the best option. The same goes for equipment and hard to reach places; if a piece of equipment is heavily trafficked, electrostatic spray cleaning in the most comprehensive way to remove germs and dirt.

Perform Routine Infectious Disease Remediation

Now let’s talk about routine cleaning throughout your building. Everything in your workplace should always be kept clean and sanitary, but the need for thoroughness peaks when trying to prevent the spread of germs. Surfaces that should be regularly cleaned include:

  • Workstations and desks 
  • Lifts, staircases, floors and walls 
  • Keyboards, mouse and phones 
  • Doorknobs and door push plates 
  • Washrooms surfaces and  partition walls 
  • Canteen areas including vending machines
