Combating Viruses like COVID-19 with Electric and Electrostatic Disinfection
Under normal circumstances, most people would never consider having a disinfecting service completed at their office, business, or shop. Only when a notable shift in absences or production during a bad flu season affects a school or office is Stratus called upon to help and provide commercial disinfecting services.
So, as a business owner, facility manager, or office manager need to know about what services are available? Stratus is here to help. The use of electrostatic disinfection was a service we provided long before the mainstream need to our medical office and hospital clientele. Here are some of the most pressing questions we get about electrostatic cleaning services.
What is Electric and Electrostatic Disinfection?
Electric and Electrostatic Spraying utilize power-assisted spraying machinery in lieu of manually-powered chemical spraying. The machinery also breaks down 1 traditional manual-sprayer size droplet into many smaller micron droplets, allowing for more even coverage of a targeted area.
Electrostatic spraying goes one step further as it charges the chemical droplets as they leave the machine. Once the droplets are released, they seek objects and surfaces more readily. The assures an even greater coverage of the chemical disinfectant, even in hard-to-reach places.
Why is Electric and Electrostatic Spraying Better than Conventional Cleaning Methods when Disinfecting?
Electric and electrostatic spraying assures more even coverage of surfaces including assisting to cover evenly every button on the elevator or areas of a desk with disinfecting chemicals; where conventional spray and wipe is effective, it can leave heavier residues in certain areas.
Additionally, these tools are a huge time saver. Most disinfecting chemicals require a 10 minute dwell time to be the most effective, and you can cover and re-visit a far larger area in that 10 minute waiting period than you would with a traditional manual sprayer. Also, in some cases, the sprayer is able to spray with such small droplets that a residual wipe down is not required.
How Much Does Electrostatic Cleaning Services Cost?
There are a number of benefits that come from Electric and Electrostatic Disinfection including better coverage, faster for your business but there still is not an industry standard of the price of application per square foot. Pricing is typically determined by location, type of business, and size; however Stratus Building Solutions on average between $.05 and $.15 per square foot across the US and Canada.
