A better way to disinfect

Using electrostatic sprayers can prevent the spread of a wide array of pathogens
Invented in the 1930s for industrial uses, electrostatic sprayers can be a powerful tool in the fight against Covid-19 and other diseases. Once a surface is clean, use an electrostatic sprayer to spray a fine mist of antimicrobial disinfectant on surfaces like floors, walls, counters, chairs and tables.

How it works:

Electrostatic sprayers charge the disinfectants as they pass through the spray nozzle. These charged droplets repel one another and actively seek out surfaces to stick to, and even wrap around, coating all sides. Surfaces can be protected for up to 90 days, depending on the sprayer and disinfectant used, even with regular cleaning and use.

This form of long-term protection means less frequent disinfection is required, saving time and money for facilities like nursing homes. It also prevents disinfectant resistance, which is becoming a problem since they are being used more than ever before.

Walkway railings, ledges, remote controls, light switches, sinks, counters, faucet controls, and door handles all have high traffic use and could benefit from the type of continuous protection that electrostatic sprayers offer.
