Studies show that COVID-19 mainly spreads through airborne transmission of the virus. It can also spread through contact with contaminated surfaces. That is why experts recommend routine cleaning and disinfection of surfaces.
Are you trying to find the best ways to disinfect large surface areas? That is where electrostatic sprayers and foggers come in handy. They allow for the rapid application of disinfectants over complex or large surfaces.
Several industries have been using electrostatic spray technology for many years. An example is the efficient application of pesticides to crops or spray-painting cars. Recently, this technology is becoming more popular for disinfecting contaminated surfaces. Janitorial services are incorporating it to offer everyone concerned about coronavirus peace of mind.
It is not enough to disinfect surfaces to prevent the spread of coronavirus. You must fight the germs in the air as well. Electrostatic sprayers do that. They are more time-efficient and effective than the manual application of disinfectants. Spraying and wiping a surface leaves room for human error. So, germs are still present.
The specialized sprayer ensures complete disinfection. It combines the disinfectant solution inside with air. An electrode inside the nozzle gives it an electric charge. The disinfectant bonds with the surfaces to create a more complete and even coat.
The positively-charged molecules repel each other. That allows the disinfectant to cover its target thoroughly. Electric charges draw the molecules together, allowing the disinfectant to stick to the surface.
Electrostatic spray disinfection is very effective at killing coronavirus. But you must use an appropriate disinfectant. No other cleaning method can cover surfaces so completely. Since the ionically-charged disinfectant sticks to the sprayed surface, there is less wastage. With a regular spray bottle, a lot of the disinfectant will go to waste.
Furthermore, electrostatic sprayers can cover even the hardest-to-reach areas with disinfectant. So, you can kill bacterial colonies hiding in various nooks and crannies. You can also disinfect large surface areas in less time. That will save you money and effort even as you achieve better results.
The cleaning process becomes smoother in various ways, thanks to this technology. Some benefits are matters of convenience. Others can make the process more comprehensive and safer. Some of these include:
It takes less effort and time for complete coverage of large areas
You have tighter control of where the disinfectant goes, meaning less waste
Thorough disinfection of hard-to-reach or impossible-to-reach places is possible
You can achieve even disinfection without the need to wipe or touch the target surface
It can decrease the risk of disease transmission
Of course, disinfecting by itself is not enough. Combining it with cleaning is the best way to keep your environment clean and safe. Disinfecting an unclean surface only destroys the pathogens on the surface. Those under the top layer of grime or dirt can survive. To achieve the best results, hire trained cleaning and disinfecting professionals.
