Electrostatic disinfecting (electrostatic cleaning) is a touchless application of chemicals used after janitorial services to efficiently and evenly coat surfaces with a disinfecting solution. The electrostatic applicator applies a negative charge to the disinfecting solution as it leaves the application tool. Since charged molecules repel each other, they create a more evenly distributed disinfectant application, which is attracted to the applied surface, thereby creating 360-degrees of coverage. These charged particles create a web of disinfectant over the applied surfaces with a micron size between 40 to 110 microns. This service is particularly important because germs and bacteria hide in hard-to-reach areas, which are reached during an electrostatic disinfecting service.

  • Covers 360-degrees of applied surfaces
  • Reduces the risk of cross-contamination because of touch application processes
  • Allows for disinfectants to hold their cationic charge, which prevents dripping
  • The evenly distributed application allows for required disinfectant dwell times
  • Reaches hard-to-reach cleaning surfaces and spaces
  • Uses on average 65% fewer chemicals per square foot than standard cleaning (eco-friendly service option)

Spaces can be used an hour after the electrostatic and fogging disinfectant services. We recommend that all personnel vacate the service area during these services and that all air units and fans be shut off until the space is reoccupied.

Electrostatic and fogging services can be conducted as often as required by the site and situation. Medical facilities typically require more frequent services, however during peak flu seasons sensitive facilities (e.g. education centers, sports facilities, etc.) tend to increase their service frequency.

The service lasts throughout the chemical dwell time and as long as the space is not reinfected with bacteria and/or viruses. If you think a space becomes reinfected, then we recommend follow-up electrostatic/fogging services.

Most companies charge between $2.50 - $3.00 per Square Ft. Pulse Cleaning Solutions LLC can offer your home or business competitive rates much lower than the competition and perform the services efficiently and professionally.
