What is Electrostatic Spraying?

June 24 Safety Products, Workplace Safety

As businesses start to reopen, sanitation has become a primary area of focus for owners and managers. While there are many options for cleaning your common areas and surfaces, electrostatic spraying is one of the most effective. Knowing what electrostatic spraying is will allow you to determine if it is the right choice for your needs. As leading providers of safety training and safety training, EFAS Safety understands the importance of effective sanitation. That is why our team has provided some information on electrostatic spraying and the benefits it offers for various businesses and facilities.

Electrostatic spraying is an efficient and highly effective method of sanitization that many businesses utilize to clean their facility. Electrostatic spray disinfection systems turn disinfectant liquids into aerosols and then apply an electric charge to each droplet. This charge makes each droplet gravitate towards target surfaces at a rate that is roughly 75 times stronger than gravity, creating a “wraparound” effect that fully coats all surfaces and disinfects them. Electrostatic spraying kills 99.99% of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, making it an ideal choice for businesses with heavy traffic or facilities with many employees.

What are the Benefits of Electrostatic Spraying?

Electrostatic spraying offers many benefits for businesses of all sizes. Some of the main Occupational Health and Safety benefits of electrostatic spraying include:

Safe for Everyone

Using low-volume electrostatic spraying means that everyone in the area—workers, customers, etc.—will be exposed to the least possible amount of disinfectant.

Highly Effective

Compared to conventional sprayers, electrostatic sprayers offer a smaller droplet size for greater and targeted coverage. This creates a dry fog that wraps around everything with the opposite charge.

No Moisture

Because our electrostatic sprayers create dry fog, papers, equipment, and electronics are not damaged by lingering moisture.

Healthier Employees

Disinfecting with electrostatic spraying can limit the transmission of many communicable diseases, including COVID-19, bacterial infections, influenza, and other viruses, as well as digestive diseases like the Norwalk virus or salmonella. This can improve the health of employees and reduce the number of sick days taken.

Better for the Environment

Using safer chemicals reduces waste and substantially reduces environmental impact.
