How To Choose A Reputable Electrostatic Disinfection Service

Nov 17, 2020

As electrostatic disinfection becomes more and more popular as a way to curb the spread of Covid-19 on surfaces, cleaning companies are eager to jump on the bandwagon. However, not all cleaning services are the same. How can you be sure you are choosing a reputable electrostatic disinfection service? Read on for tips in this “buyer beware!”

Understanding The Process

The first step in choosing a provider is to understand what electrostatic disinfection is and how it can benefit your place of business. Electrostatic spray service is a unique type of disinfection method. It involves a fine mist of disinfectant sprayed over surfaces instead of wiping it on by hand. The spray covers all of those hard to reach areas consistently, avoiding missed spots.

To enhance the dispersal of the disinfectant, the nozzle of the sprayer places a positive charge on each particle. The positive charge serves a couple of purposes, one of which is that it makes the mist attracted to surfaces like desks, chairs, doors, and more. On an atomic level, this is the difference between the mist just falling to the ground, versus actively clinging to surfaces. We discuss more detail about the science of electrostatic disinfection in this post. Companies claiming to provide this service should be well versed in the process and be able to explain it to you and answer questions competently.

Using EPA Approved Disinfectants

If a company is advertising their service with electrostatic disinfectant spray, check to ensure that they are using an EPA approved disinfectant. Especially in the case of Covid-19, you want your facility disinfected with something that actually kills the virus SARS-CoV-2. The list of approved disinfectants is widely available, so steer clear of any company that can’t tell you what they are using or if it is effective against SARS-CoV-2.

Finding An Experienced Company

An experienced company will be able to talk to you in great detail about their process, answering any questions you might have. In addition, look for companies that have experience disinfecting a variety of facilities (offices, gyms, schools, medical, etc.). At Virus Assassins, we have worked in all types of environments.
