Janitorial and cleaning services are continually evolving to provide safer, healthier, and more efficient approaches to cleaning and sterilization–the latest trend is the use of electrostatic equipment, combined with specialized cleaning chemicals that reduce the time and volume of cleaning product required to sanitize any surface.
Electrostatic cleaning equipment has several advantages over other disinfection methods, such as UV lighting, fogging systems, or sprays and wipes.
✓ Efficiency – The positively charged disinfectant particles are immediately attracted to the neutral or negatively charged surfaces, reducing linger-time in the air–common with fogging systems and sprays.
✓ Reduced Waste – Electrostatic cleaning systems do not require water change outs, wipe rags, towels, mops, or buckets, and the containers can be recycled; eliminating water pollution while allowing for the diversion of resources from the landfill. Additionally, advanced electrostatic systems can disinfect roughly four times the square footage of alternative spray methods over the same time frame, reducing energy consumption.
✓ Reduced Costs – The increased efficiency of electrostatic cleaning equipment allows for large jobs to be completed in less time by fewer people, while eliminating the hazards associated with conventional cleaning practices, especially in difficult to access/clean locations, as well as repetitive motion injuries common to the janitorial services profession.
