What is Electrostatic Deep Cleaning in the Workplace?

“Electrostatic deep cleaning” may sound a bit futuristic, but it is a cleaning technology here now and available to use in the workplace. You may be unfamiliar with this new low-labour and highly effective cleaning method, so we investigate the technology here in more detail.

Electrostatic cleaning – an overview

Electrostatic cleaning is a process where a mist that is electrostatically charged is sprayed onto required work surfaces. This mist is sprayed automatically without touch and without any need for human intervention. The electrostatic cleaning dispenser contains cleaning fluid, disinfectant or sanitiser depending on the operation of the cleaning device.

The fluid in the dispenser is atomised through an electrode and is released into the air as mist. The mist released is positively charged and this enables it to stick/adhere to hard surfaces, and other objects including people.

Why choose an electrostatic sprayer in the workplace?

Electrostatic sprayers (also known as fogging machines) will be a great ally in your cleaning regime. The electrostatic sprayer is fully programmable and will dispense mist at the required levels continuously whilst in operation and can be turned off when the area is not in use. All required surfaces in the area will be cleansed as the fine mist settles.

The cleaning liquid (most typically sanitiser) is dispensed invisibly through electro-statically charged droplets of mist. The process is entirely automatic apart from occasional liquid refilling and programming modifications. As such, electrostatic deep cleaning saves staff labour time – why pay for a cleaner if you do not need one?

Clean and disinfect entire rooms and environments through a continual spraying process, which generates no mess, a major benefit when compared to other cleaning methods. There are no bleach stains, no sticky or messy sanitiser, and no waiting for surfaces to dry, in what is an almost invisible process.

In addition to cleansing/disinfecting hard surfaces, another major benefit will be the whole body sanitisation of staff, visitors, customers, etc. Disinfection will be across the entire body (including clothing) and not just hands as is the case with traditional sanitisers in reception.

What settings does this cleaning work well in?

Of course, electrostatic deep cleaning benefits any indoor area. Some of the best examples of where to use this technology include dentist/doctors surgeries, factories, hospitals and health settings, laboratories, offices, receptions, restaurants, schools, staff canteens, toilets and any location that needs continual cleaning and disinfected air.
