Since the pandemic began, you’ve likely seen a flurry of information about cleaning products – those newly approved by the FDA, warnings against dangerous or ineffective products and recommendations for use. Two advanced systems you’ve likely seen images or videos of are foggers and electrostatic sprayers, and they are very different in functionality. Let us explain.
Some professional cleaning companies use fogging systems. The machines release tiny droplets of cleaning solution that fall on surfaces based on the direction the machine is facing. Gravity determines where these droplets land, resulting in uneven coverage of surfaces. This means the cleaning solution may never come in contact with the backs and undersides of chairs, tables, handles and more, and as a result, those surfaces can remain contaminated.
On the other hand, ServiceMaster TBS uses Clorox Total 360 electrostatic sprayers to clean office spaces, industrial facilities, schools, hospitals and more. Clorox Total 360 is an aerosolized fog technology that also is registered with the EPA and meets its criteria for killing SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This game-changing machine turns the liquid sanitizing solution into charged droplets that are drawn to all surfaces, not just the ones in the line of fire of the sprayer, at a force greater than gravity. This means that the droplets wrap around objects like the ones mentioned above instead of landing on the topside of surfaces, and as a result, more consistent coverage and deeper disinfection is achieved.
Aside from being able to produce a cleaner, more sanitary space, Clorox Total 360 electrostatic sprayers allow us to have fewer team members for shorter periods of time in customer facilities. This protects our team AND our customer’s employees. One jug of solution used with the electrostatic sprayer does the job of a dozen handheld trigger bottles. This means that one ServiceMaster TBS team member can do the job of 12 people with this technology! Moreover, the electrostatic sprayer helps us take care of disinfection cleanings in a shorter amount of time. According to Clorox, these machines allow us to cover 18,000 square feet per hour, compared to just 3,900 square feet with a traditional trigger bottle.
