Electrostatic Disinfection Vs. Fogging

Electrostatic Disinfection Vs. Fogging

Most Lincoln cleaning services include the standard method of disinfection—chemical sprays and manual wipe-down of surfaces. However, this rarely provides sufficient disinfection, especially over the long term when hard-to-reach areas have gone months—possibly even years—without being touched by disinfectant. There are 2 common disinfection methods that go beyond manual disinfection—electrostatic and fogging.

Disinfectant Fogging

This is usually accomplished with an Ultra Low Volume Fogger producing a liquid antimicrobial solution in the form of vapor, which is then dispersed by a fan. Disinfectant fogging can also combat airborne pathogens. Homes or businesses that have been fogged should be evacuated for at least six hours. While you can find Lincoln cleaning services that include fogging, electrostatic disinfection is more efficient.

Electrostatic Disinfection

Electrostatic disinfection involves a disinfectant solution with an electric charge, which is then manually sprayed onto a surface. With a positively charged solution and a negatively charged surface, the solution naturally adheres to and completely coats the surface. Not only that, but due to the cleaning solution’s molecules being positively charged, they naturally repel each other—this means the spray covers more ground and completely covers the targeted area. Electrostatic disinfection can also protect against COVID-19 and other pathogens.

The Effectiveness Of Electrostatic Disinfection Is Measurable

Our Lincoln cleaners swab surfaces before and after disinfecting. What we are looking for is a measurement of ATP residue. ATP—or, Adenosine Triphosphate—is an energy molecule found in all living things. ATP is thus the perfect indicator of whether or not a surface is clean. lincoln cleanersThis is especially important in healthcare and food manufacturing environments, as employees, patients, and customers need to know that there are no accumulating biofilms that could negatively affect the quality of their products, services, or their own health. Our ATP monitoring system involves a liquid-stable reagent inside a test device that emits light directly proportional to the amount of ATP found in the sample—this gives our Lincoln cleaners a clear picture of how contaminated a surface is both before and after the disinfection process.
