How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Stop the Spread of Germs and Keep Your Facility Safer and Cleaner?

During this uncertain time, you should care even more about health and safety. It’s imperative to look for better cleaning techniques that prevent the spread of infections. Disease experts at CDC recognize the importance of electrostatic disinfection during the pandemic because it is an effective technique in making areas clean and healthy. Here’s what you need to know about electrostatic disinfection.


Electrostatic disinfection works through an electrostatic spray. When applied, the disinfectant solution coats all items completely because the Electrostatic charge in the spray atomizes the cleaning solution, and then the liquid particles attach to the charged particles of the target objects. After that, the solution sticks to and removes pathogens from various surfaces, extending into the far corners and unreachable gaps.


Below are the traits that show the efficiency of electrostatic disinfection:

  • Tackles every surface you find in the space. Buildings or rooms should be vacant during electrostatic disinfection. Once you spray, electrostatic disinfectants start working. Allow the solution to stay on the surfaces for at least a couple of minutes.
  • Saves you energy and time. This disinfecting technique is more efficient than traditional cleaning systems. You can apply electrostatic disinfection on walls, equipment, and floors. The spray tool enables you to disinfect huge areas in a short time, with less effort. Electrostatic disinfection decreases the traditional disinfection time by 50 percent.
  • Protects items and surfaces from cross-contamination. Electrostatic disinfection prevents the spread of viruses, bacteria, and other harmful diseases. The pathogens are destroyed on contact by the electrostatically-charged solution.
  • Saves money. This disinfection prevents companies from spending on costly contagious infections. Electrostatic disinfection helps lower their costs on expensive cleaning products and solutions.


Electrostatic disinfection is safe for people during and after cleaning. You don’t need to wear any personal protective equipment at all. Once the area is dry, it is safe for both animals and people. This type of cleaning is also healthy for the environment.

Pre-Disinfection Reminders

Before you start electrostatic disinfection, you should consider certain pointers:

  • Make sure the space is vacant before you start disinfecting.

  • Remember to spray at a good distance from objects to get the most effective coverage.

  • Clear all your surfaces of garbage, folders, documents, clutter, and other movable items.

  • You should also store all cutlery, food items, open containers, and dishes.

Clearing areas result in more available surfaces that can receive electrostatic disinfection.
