Given the highly transmissible nature of COVID-19, there’s a pressing need for a deeper level of cleaning to mitigate its spread. To this end, our team at Colonial Commercial Cleaning incorporates the Electrostatic Spray Disinfection method to intensively sanitize our clients’ premises.

Until recently, not many outside the commercial cleaning sphere were familiar with this method. However, due to increasing cleaning concerns, many clients are inquiring about its application and specifics. Essentially, it’s a device that dispenses chemicals onto surfaces. What sets it apart from standard sprayers is that, as the disinfectant exits the electrostatic sprayer, it’s atomized into droplets and positively charged. These droplets are then attracted to and uniformly coat the negatively charged surfaces, ensuring comprehensive disinfection.

Without delving into complexities, here are the top three advantages of this system:

  • Enhanced control and efficiency in the application of disinfectants.
  • Superior access to hard-to-reach surfaces.
  • The system’s efficacy allows more areas to be sanitized in less time.

Our dedicated team at Colonial Commercial Cleaning is proficiently trained in using electrostatic spray disinfection systems, ensuring stellar results at our client locations.

Our Electrostatic Sprayer Protocols

Outlined below are the protocols adopted by Colonial Commercial Cleaning:

  • The use of appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is mandatory, including latex gloves, N95 respirator masks, safety goggles, shoe covers, and, if necessary, hazmat suits.
  • A preliminary walkthrough is conducted to strategize an effective workflow, considering the facility’s layout.
  • All disinfecting agents used are EPA-approved and recognized as effective against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
  • Before each use, the approved equipment and supplies, including sprayers and microfiber cloths, are checked and readied.
  • Initially, high-touch surfaces and items are meticulously cleaned using a detergent-based solution and microfiber cloth. Post drying, a disinfectant is applied to these surfaces via the electrostatic sprayer. Microfiber cloths are employed to negate any undesirable overspray, and manufacturer’s guidelines regarding PPE, application, dwell time, and ventilation are adhered to strictly.
  • The disinfectant is left to settle for the duration stipulated by the manufacturer. If any surface dries prematurely, it’s re-sprayed to ensure adequate coverage.
  • After the recommended dwell period, surfaces are either wiped down with a clean microfiber cloth or left to air dry, based on the manufacturer’s directive.

We hope this provides clarity on how the electrostatic spray disinfection systems function and how we deploy this incredible tool in the spaces we are entrusted with.
