While interest in the Wuhan Corona Virus 2019-nCOV dominates the news, it is important to remind everyone we are in the midst of a serious FLU season. Absentee rates in some schools due to the FLU has been reported as high as 40% of the student population. The Flu can be deadly for the elderly and those with compromised immune systems.
22 Million FLU Cases in the U.S.
15 cases of Novel Corona Virus 2019-nCOV
The purpose of this blog is to discuss how electrostatic spray technology (E-Spray) can be used for more efficient and productive application of disinfectants to surfaces. The benefit of using E-Spray systems is simple, protecting people from contagious illnesses such as the common cold, influenza, and now the Wuhan Novel Corona Virus identified as 2019-nCOV.
What is E-Spray? A New Tool to Help Reduce the Spread of Contagious Pathogen’s
Electrostatic Spraying (E-Spray) is new technology in the cleaning industry that can be used to rapidly apply disinfectants to surfaces. By applying an attractive charge to the spray droplets, this special equipment insures surfaces that harbor pathogens are completely disinfected. This includes complex surfaces like weights, workout equipment, wrestling mats, and other surfaces. It can also include cafeteria tables, beds, desktops, countertops, virtually any hard surface.
What gets disinfected and what should get disinfected
While it is relatively easy to clean and disinfect accessible or exposed surfaces, oft times more complex surfaces or inaccessible surfaces get missed. Or, custodians simply don’t have the time to get every nook and cranny. Yet these surfaces that are less exposed but accessible to human touch can become a breeding ground for pathogens, resulting in transmission and resulting illness.
Think of a student desk in a classroom, the desk surface gets regularly cleaned and disinfected. But what about the underside of the desk, the chair legs and seat? These touch points likely gets missed or, there simply isn’t the time to cover all these surfaces.
Multi-Clean offers the E-Spray Hand Held and Backpack units that are validated for use with Multi-Clean brand disinfectants. The lithium ion battery powered sprayers apply an attractive charge to disinfectant solutions as they are sprayed toward surfaces. The charged spray droplets are naturally attracted to surfaces like opposite poles of a magnet. This allows one to quickly cover complex objects and surfaces extremely quickly.
