COVID-19 and the Rise of Electrostatic Disinfection in Commercial Cleaning
COVID-19 has dramatically increased the need for effective commercial office disinfection services in every workplace. Masks are a critical first step, but they’re not enough to guarantee that germs won’t make it into the air and onto surfaces. Every room, piece of equipment, product, and surface needs the proper care and treatment to ensure that the virus is destroyed and removed from the environment. Comprehensive commercial sanitation services ensure any harmful microbes are effectively and consistently destroyed and removed from the workplace.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that it may be possible for a person to contract COVID-19 by touching a surface or object with the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes. Transmission by surface contact is unlikely to be a significant factor in the spread of the virus, but the costs of providing a safer and cleaner workplace far outweigh those of any infection risk. To address these new concerns, workplaces need more than basic manual cleaning procedures like vacuuming and wiping down surfaces. In addition to floors, walls, desks, and other work surfaces, recent additions of plexiglass dividers, turnstiles, and new barriers and enclosures must be regularly cleaned and disinfected to ensure they’re doing their jobs.
One highly effective solution to guaranteeing complete cleaning coverage on all of these surfaces is electrostatic disinfection with nano-barrier protection. Electrostatic disinfection uses electrically charged spray technology with liquid cleaning products that wrap around surfaces for a 360-degree clean. Making the most of positive and negative electric charges, this rapid cleaning method ensures even and thorough coverage while preventing chemical overuse and is excellent at managing hard-to-reach and complex spaces.
Nano-barrier protection uses defensive antimicrobial formulas to establish a non-receptive layer on both porous and nonporous surfaces. This attracts and physically blocks microbes from growing on objects in a given space, keeping treated areas safe from a wide array of bacteria, viruses, molds, mildews, fungi, and algae.
Together, these methods offer significant protection against the spread of COVID-19 in every industry, from airlines to manufacturing plants to hospitals to universities:
- Kills 99.99% of bacteria on contact
- Sanitizes and disinfects hard-to-reach surfaces
- Forms a nano-bed antimicrobial shield to attract and kill bacteria
- Inhibits the growth of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms
- Creates a lasting defense layer for up to 90 days
In addition to maintaining a physically safer and healthier work environment, the visible presence of commercial sanitation and office disinfection services plays a major role in instilling confidence in employees, clients, students, and visitors who all have a heightened awareness around COVID-19 disinfection. Taking this sense of awareness and confidence a step further, it’s critical to give employees the cleaning supplies they need to handle any minor cleaning and disinfecting needs that arise. Commercial janitorial services make supply stocking and management easy and cost-effective with regular reviews of everything that employees might need, including:
- Nitrile gloves
- Disinfectant wipes and sprays
- Hand sanitizers
- Paper products
- Masks and face coverings
