Can Static Disinfection help your business fight the COVID-19 virus?

We’ve been providing commercial disinfection services for our commercial cleaning clients in DFW area nearby cities for over 2 years. At Static Disinfection, the health and safety of our staff and clients are our primary concern. That’s why we deliver the best disinfection services possible.

In light of the recent coronavirus threat, we are pleased to report that our disinfection protocols are in compliance with the latest CDC and EPA guidelines.

Why we should use electrostatic disinfection?

Infection is spread when details are overlooked. You may do your best to thoroughly clean all surfaces, but it’s easy to miss a surface that you thought someone else cleaned.

When you wipe down one surface with a microfiber towel there is the potential that you can transfer those microbes to another surface. Using color coded microfiber towel can help prevent cross contamination, but there is no guarantee. When disinfection is touchless, you reduce the potential of transfer completely.

Another common issue we see when we go on walks with prospective customers is that they aren’t sanitizing the right areas. For example, we’ve seen someone “disinfect” a patient chair at a dialysis center without cleaning the under part of chair arms. Patient after patient are putting their hands in the same exact place, yet it is consistently overlooked. Electrostatic disinfection removes this worry because it provides 360-degree coverage and is easy to use in tight spaces.

How long does it last?

Electrostatic disinfection does not create a protective barrier. It disinfects, or kills, unwanted pathogens from every targeted surface, but won’t protect those surfaces from becoming infected again. So, if someone should contract a virus (or be exposed), we have infection control plans that can be implemented to mitigate the spread of infection throughout your facility

That being said, institutions like medical facilities, schools and gyms etc. may require electrostatic disinfection more frequently because they are introduced to new, potentially harmful pathogens on a daily basis.

The frequency of disinfection services can be increased during flu season or during the current coronavirus threat, to reduce the rate of absenteeism.

Are the chemicals safe for HUMANS AND Pets?

The main purpose of the usage of these chemicals is for the proper use through the Electrostatic spraying.

Our Certified technicians are aware of how to use the products along with the sprayer so they are not getting in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. They are wearing goggles or face shield, protective clothing and rubber gloves when handling.

Although there are no effects to the people and pets but we do recommend that the property be evacuated through the electrostatic disinfection spraying process (Time is based on the size of the property).

Is it safe to use on/around electronics?

Electrostatic disinfection can be safely performed around electronics such as laptops, monitors and keyboards as long as it is not applied directly at close range. We recommend putting away paper documents, along with anything else you don’t want sprayed before the scheduled service.

Is it safe for the person applying it?

It is safe for the person applying and all people present during the service. Masks and protective gear are not required, but may be used especially in medical settings where certain protective gear is required.

What does it fight against?

Deactivates viruses such as COVID-19, Influenza Type A (including H1N1 Swine Flu), Avian Influenza, HIV-1, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C and many others.

Effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria (including MRSA), inhibits the growth of mold and mildew.

Staphylococcus aureus Multi-Drug Resistant that reduces 99.99% of Staphylococcus aureus, and Klebsiella pneumoniae in 60 seconds.

Kills common household germs including Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pseudomonas), Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus faecalis.

What sprayer system styles are available?

There are several electrostatic sprayer options currently on the market so you can find one best suited for your facilities’ individual needs. Be sure to evaluate them for reliability, safety, and ease of use before purchasing.

Responsible manufacturers conduct testing of the entire system—the electrostatic sprayer paired with specific chemistries—to determine the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) for the operator as well as safety considerations for bystanders. Be wary of companies that claim you can spray any product with their system; they likely have not done the proper testing required to ensure operator and bystander safety for the use of all chemicals. Ensure the sprayer itself is certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL), such as Intertek, to confirm electrical safety.

Sprayer systems are available in several designs, such as rolling cart systems, handheld sprayers, and backpack sprayers. Handheld and backpack models offer operators flexibility but can be heavy when filled with liquid. Some sprayers use battery power to impart a charge on liquids, while others use a cord to draw power from a standard outlet plug. Although cords can pose an additional challenge, they provide consistent power and droplet charging, which results in better system performance. Batteries simply aren’t powerful enough to generate a consistent, reliable charge to deliver the electrostatic performance needed to cover surfaces completely and evenly every time you spray.

Corded systems have other inherent benefits that provide superior performance. For example, electrostatic sprayers using outlet power include an air compressor, which reduces blowback by pushing sanitizer or disinfectant liquid toward environmental surfaces and away from the operator. Battery-powered sprayers cannot contain an air compressor and more closely resemble trigger sprayers in terms of coverage and surface wrap.

Whichever sprayer you choose, electrostatic technology can help you cover more surfaces in less time, saving your facility money while providing the surface disinfection you need to prevent the spread of illness-causing pathogens.

Why Static disinfection?

In light of the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) threat, we are pleased to report that our disinfection protocols are in compliance with the latest CDC and EPA guidelines.

We develop a customized disinfection plan for each facility we clean. We will work with you to determine how often your facility needs to be disinfected according to the volume of traffic and density of people at work.
