Electrostatic disinfection does not create a protective barrier. It disinfects, or kills, unwanted pathogens from every targeted surface, but won’t protect those surfaces from becoming infected again. Institutions like medical facilities, schools and gyms may require electrostatic disinfection more frequently because they are introduced to new, potentially harmful pathogens on a daily basis.
Electrostatic disinfection can be safely performed around electronics such as laptops, monitors and keyboards as long as it is not applied directly at close range. We recommend putting away paper documents, along with anything else you don’t want sprayed before the scheduled service.
While your facility is safe to enter immediately after it has been sprayed, we recommend waiting at least 10 minutes to allow the disinfectant to dry. This also allows enough time for the disinfectant to dwell on surfaces long enough to kill unwanted pathogens.
It is safe to use on upholstered surfaces, however, to be safe we perform a spot test on fabrics before spraying as some dyes can be affected by disinfectants.
Electrostatic disinfection is not a replacement to your regularly scheduled service. But it is a great addition that guarantees that all surfaces, even small areas or upholstered surfaces that can’t get wiped down, are disinfected. Remember, it’s not just disinfecting the tops of surfaces but underneath and all the way around too.
