What is Electrostatic Disinfecting?


Electrostatic disinfecting is a touchless application of disinfectant used after ordinary janitorial services to efficiently and evenly coat surfaces with a disinfecting solution

How does it work? 
Disinfectant is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the electrostatic sprayer. As the aerosolized droplets of disinfectant exit the electrostatic sprayer, they are induced with a positive electrical charge. As a result, the positively charged droplets are attracted to all negative surfaces including the visible area, underside and backside, with the sanitizing agent. Additionally, surfaces that are already covered will repel the spray, making it the fastest, most efficient, and cost effective way to disinfect areas like desks, floors, walls, doors, and any equipment without over wetting

Benefits of Electrostatic Disinfecting:

  • Covers 360-degrees of applied surfaces

  • Reduces the risk of cross contamination because of touch application processes

  • Reaches hard-to-reach cleaning surfaces and spaces

  • Reduces the time it takes to cover and disinfect all surfaces and hard-to-reach places 

  • Improves infection control and the spread of viruses such as Coronavirus, influenza, MRSA, and many others

  • Applies chemicals in a more efficient, controlled manner, eliminating the dangers of over wetting

  • Prevents costly financial burdens associated with contagious healthcare infections

  • Touch less application which reduces cross contamination

  • How soon can a space be used after electrostatic disinfection?
    The disinfectant used by Richardson Sanitech requires a dwell time of 8 minutes. Therfore, we maintain a 10 minute post-disinfection waiting period before bystanders can re-enter.
  • Can I be present during electrostatic disinfection services?
    Although our disinfectant is gentle enough to wash your hands with, we recommend tha bystanders vacate the service area during these services and that all air units and fans be shut off until the space is reoccupied.
  • How long does the disinfection last?
    The service lasts throughout the chemical dwell time and as long as the space is not reinfected with bacteria and/or viruses. If you think a space becomes reinfected, then we recommend follow-up electrostatic service. t
