Did you know that, according to the Centers for Diseases and Prevention (CDC), 22 million school days are lost annually in the United States because of the common cold? And that up to 38 million days of school can be missed during a bad flu season? These are alarming statistics, especially for parents and school administrators.

While some colds and illnesses are unavoidable, there are things we can do to significantly reduce the spread of germs and bacteria. One specific actionable step that we at Pacific Maintenance Company suggest is the use of electrostatic disinfection. In today’s blog, we are going to share some information about this high-tech cleaning process. If you are considering implementing this cleaning service into your school, contact us today!

What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Although it is a process that has existed for decades in the automotive, agriculture, inkjet, and photocopier industries, electrostatic disinfection is becoming the preferred method for disinfecting and sanitizing hospitals, schools, transportation, and a variety of other facilities. It was perhaps most notably used as a key piece of equipment in remediating the 2014 Ebola crisis in Dallas, TX.

Utilizing the process of electrostatics, whereby opposite charges attract and like charges repel, cleaning professionals can effectively disinfect an area without wiping or touching an area. Most surfaces either have a negative or neutral surface, allowing positively charged disinfectants to have optimal adhesion. This not only prevents the unintentional spread of pathogens and cross-contamination, but it also helps ensure a consistent and uniform disinfectant coating, making it one of the most cost-effective and viable options for disinfection.

Why Are Electrostatics Good for Schools?

Electrostatic disinfection has proven to be a highly effective and efficient way of preventing and reducing the spread of infectious pathogens, which makes it perfect for schools. One of the great things about utilizing an electrostatic disinfection cleaning system is that there is no wiping required, therefore, no cross-contamination. Instead, you simply apply the disinfectant using cordless, mobile, and touchless equipment.
