ATC Janitorial Now Providing Electrostatic Broad-spectrum Disinfecting!

WHY ELECTROSTATIC? Harmful pathogens can live on surfaces for days and will potentially double every 20 minutes given the right food source and ambient temperature. This provides ample opportunity to create situations for cross-contamination. Conventional cleaning and disinfecting do a fine job of managing microbiological load on common touch points.

However, the evolutionary flexibility of modern pathogens is such that we need to add new strategies to manage cross-contamination and microbial load in many types of facilities well beyond acute care.

Electrostatic disinfecting is a way of quickly and evenly coating a surface with a disinfecting solution. This is done by using an electrostatic applicator that gives a negative charge to the disinfecting solution as it exits the nozzle. The charged molecules will repel each other, meaning they will be an even distance from each other, but will be attracted to the surface they are applied to.

The charged particles have a charge strength greater than gravity allowing them to directionally target a selected surface very quickly providing complete coverage around and under the contact surface.

We are using Stearns Mark 11 broad spectrum disinfectant (EPA registered disinfectant for use against Covid-19).

How long does electrostatic cleaning last?

The kill time is about two minutes for bacteria and under two minutes for viruses. Best of all, no wiping is required with electrostatic spraying as it is with other procedures, and it’s safe for all surfaces including electronic equipment.
