FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does electrostatic disinfection work?
Electrostatic disinfection is an easy and fast way to achieve touchless wrap-around disinfection. Our electrostatic sprayers use positive and negative charges to make the disinfectant electromagnetically wrap around and cling to the target being sprayed which allows the disinfectant to cover more surface area areach hard to get to areas such as cracks and crevices that would normally be missed by conventional disinfecting.
How long does it last?
Electrostatic disinfection will not create a protective shield. It kills or disinfects unwanted pathogens from every targeted surface, but won’t protect those surfaces from becoming re-infected. Some facilities such as schools, gyms, and medical offices may require electrostatic disinfection more frequently because they are consistently being introduced to new and potentially harmful pathogens on a regular basis. We at Covid-Clear LLC recommend at least a once a week disinfection service aside from your regular disinfecting of high contact touch points such as door handles, hand rails, etc.
What does “no rinse required on food contact surface” mean?
“No rinse required on food contact surfaces” is a safety rating given by NSF International. The NSF testing guidelines are a continuation of the USDA product approval and listing program, including the FDA 21. The disinfectant we use is rated “no rise required on food contact surfaces” category D2, meaning it is approved for use in commercial or residential kitchens to control bacteria, viruses, and mold without the need to wash/rinse the area with water after it is applied.
Is it safe to use on electronics?
We can safely disinfect around electronics such as computers or cash registers as long as it is not applied directly at close range. We recommend putting away any paper documents, along with anything else you don’t want sprayed before the scheduled service.
How long do I have to wait to enter my facility?
It is safe to re-enter immediately after we disinfect but we recommend waiting at least 20 minutes to allow the disinfectant to dry completely. This also allows the disinfectant the time it needs to remain on surfaces to utilize the maximum effectiveness of the disinfectant.
