ELECTROSTATIC DISINFECTING

The traditional standard when it comes to disinfecting surfaces and objects must be raised. Using dry and wet cleaning and dusting tends to be the first methods that come to mind.

While these cleaning techniques are tried and true, they provide minimal disinfecting and do little more than spread filth around, even when the rags used are washed regularly.

ELECTROSTATIC DISINFECTING

Dry dusting kicks up resting particles, redistributing them into the air and onto other surfaces. Wet dusting can involve harmful cleaning chemicals and make it hard to reach certain spots or objects. For sensitive places, like clean rooms, R&D labs, restaurants, healthcare facility cleaning and schools, there is an effective and additional method for sanitation and the removal of viruses and  germs from surfaces that require a specialized service: Electrostatic Spray.

Electrostatic spray surface sanitation 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 can 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.

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.
For awkwardly shaped objects or hard to reach places, technicians only 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.

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.

For desktops, floors and walls that need to be absolutely germ free, 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 is the most comprehensive way to remove germs.

The Benefits of Electrostatic Disinfecting
Electrostatic disinfection is an innovative method that saves time, energy and costs across the board because it presents a more efficient alternative to traditional cleaning techniques and cleaning solution applications. Below are some of the many benefits of using an electrostatic system.

  • 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, uniform and controlled manner, eliminating the dangers of overuse and reducing the amount of chemicals used and waste produced.
  • Prevents costly financial burdens associated with contagious healthcare infections.
  • Avoids cross contamination and the movement of bacteria from one surface to another.
  • Saves chemical solution costs and those associated with long-term cleaning efforts.
  • Reduces out of work cost of your operation from employees missing time.

 

Note: Daily traditional cleaning should be a continual process to maintain any facility. The Electrostatic Disinfecting, gives you the assurance that all areas finally disinfected of any virus and ready for use.

Directions

The use-solution can be applied with a cloth, mop, sponge, or coarse spray, or soaking.  For sprayer applications, use a coarse spray device.  Spray 6-8 inches from the surface, Do not breathe spray.  Let solution remain on surface for a minimum of 3 minutes for disinfecting. Allow to air dry.

What is the Criteria for disinfectants to be effective against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19
Disinfectants that comply with the EPA Emerging Pathogen Policy must have specific efficacy claims depending on whether the emerging virus is one of the following 1) an enveloped virus 2) a large non-enveloped virus 3) a small non-enveloped virus.

A non-enveloped virus can survive in more hostile environments (including surviving some disinfectants) and is heat resistant, so it is inherently more difficult to kill than enveloped viruses.  Examples of non-enveloped viruses include Norovirus, Rotavirus, and Adenovirus.

Human Corona Viruses including the COVID-19 virus is known to be an enveloped virus.  The EPA Emerging Pathogen Policy requires the following for an enveloped emerging viral pathogen such as SARS-CoV-2:

“A product should be approved by EPA to inactivate at least one large or one small non-enveloped virus to be eligible for use against an enveloped emerging viral pathogen.”

Disinfectant products that meet the EPA Emerging Pathogen Policy.  Each disinfectant is listed by name, it’s corresponding EPA registration number, and the non-enveloped virus(es) that it is effective on:
256 Century Q Disinfectant Cleaner (EPA registration #47371-129-5449) has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses like the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (SAR-CoV-2) on hard, non-porous surfaces.
Therefore, 256 Century Q Disinfectant Cleaner can be used against the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (SAR-CoV-2) when used in accordance with directions for use against Adenovirus type 4
