What is the first thing you think about when it comes to cleaning your office furniture and equipment? For most people, it might involve dusting surfaces and using chemical solutions for certain areas.

While those methods are definitely effective and commonplace, there is something called electrostatic disinfection that can provide truly dramatic results. It’s a type of cleaning method that sounds like it’s from the future, and truth be told, it sort of is.

If you are curious to learn more about electrostatic disinfection and how it is compared to traditional cleaning methods, keep reading to the sections below.


What is electrostatic disinfection, and how does it work?

 Simply put, it is a method of cleaning that utilizes a special spraying device that atomizes the cleaning solution inside it. The solution itself contains positively charged particles that will help it stick to surfaces, which is one reason this method of cleaning is much more effective than a wet rag or a traditional spray. Regular sprays do not reach every part of a surface, but positively charged sprays are more effective at getting into every nook and cranny.

As for how it works, when the user sprays the solution onto any surface, a few things happen. First, when the cleaning solution exits the spray, it gets a positive electric charge. Second, that mist of positively charged cleaning solution gets attracted to negatively charged surfaces, which includes most of the surfaces in your office.

Once the mist touches the surface, it positively charges that specific area as well, causing the mist that’s still in the air to float around it and “look” for other surfaces.

What are the benefits?

As you might be able to tell already, this method of cleaning is extremely efficient. Again, the mist will only be attracted to negatively charged surfaces. This means that, even if the user were to spray in one direction, the cloud of cleaning solution would wrap around an entire object, given that enough of the solution is sprayed out.

There are a few other benefits as well. For instance, thanks to its ability to reach every nook and cranny, the solution is an extremely effective method of cleaning, especially when used against bacteria and viruses.

Also, because the solution sticks to surfaces, it reduces the likelihood of over spraying to compensate, reducing cost in terms of spending on cleaning solutions. It also minimizes the risk of disturbing the people around the area with excess airborne particles. 


While you can quickly get away with traditional cleaning methods for furniture and the like, if you ever need something a little more thorough, electrostatic disinfection is perfect for almost any purpose.

Whether you are disinfecting your office to keep it virus-free or cleaning your equipment to keep it sanitized, electrostatic disinfection can do the job for you. Not only will you receive better results from such a cleaning method, but you will save yourself a lot of time and money thanks to the solution’s adhering ability.
