Quick Tips for Electrostatic Spraying Success: Educate Internally
Studies have shown environmental cleaning interventions that incorporate increased staff education can reduce the presence of Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, VRE on surfaces. As with all areas of infection prevention and public health, education up front can do a lot to mitigate concerns and misinformation. How do you incorporate education to enhance disinfection compliance in your facility?
Don’t forget! While our attention has shifted to COVID prevention, other pathogens still require infection control efforts
Candida auris is an emerging fungus that presents a serious global health threat. CDC is concerned about C. auris because it thrives in healthcare settings and has been shown to persist on environmental surfaces for at least seven days. Healthcare facilities can take special precautions to stop its spread, like...
Breaking Down Electrostatic Technology: How Do Electrostatics Work? Electrostatic Spraying works by charging liquid droplets as they pass through a nozzle. The resulting charged droplets actively seek out surfaces. Once droplets reach their target surface, they stick to the surface, and the charge dissipates. The droplets all hold the same charge and they repel one another causing them to spread out and coat surface evenly. What’s your favorite application for electrostatic technology?
While appearance and building maintenance are still important reasons to clean, the public health benefit of cleaning and disinfecting to help eliminate pathogens on surfaces is now more important than ever in in commercial settings. Even once the pandemic has passed, disinfecting needs to play a central role in keeping shared spaces cleaner, healthier places so people can thrive. What measures does your facility take to clean for health?
Breaking Down Electrostatic Technology: What’s the Difference Between Electrostatic Sprayers, Foggers, and Trigger Sprayers?When comparing electrostatic sprayers to other spray technologies like foggers, pump sprayers, and trigger sprayers, there are a few big differences. The main difference is that the disinfectant droplets are charged. Foggers can distribute disinfectants more evenly than a trigger or pump sprayer, but the disinfectant coming out of these devices is uncharged, which means that some surfaces may be missed. Do you use or sell a combination of spray technologies? Why or why not?
Did you know? Research shows that targeted disinfecting of high-touch items can help reduce the risk of germ transmission in household and workplace environments by up to 80%. What are the key high-touch surfaces in your facility?
