Taking Charge of Germs
Consider how many common objects you touch in a given day – door handles, key pads at check-out, faucets, shopping carts, railings – the list goes on.
Now imagine the amount of unclean hands touching those same surfaces. Even if you routinely wash your hands, you can’t avoid the harmful bacteria and viruses accumulating on common objects. These germs continue to grow and start the dominoes falling as one by one they spread to each new hand that touches them.
Fighting the Spread of Germs…
Thoroughly cleaning common surfaces with safe disinfectants helps stop germs from spreading. But can a spray cleaner and rag handle such a big job? For a complete assault on germs, consider an electrostatic sprayer. This easy-to-use tool covers more surfaces faster than traditional spray bottles. Plus, it uses less chemicals while providing full coverage of objects.
…at the office
The influenza virus can live up to 24 hours, so diligent hand washing is imperative. If you touch an infected surface and then touch your mouth, eyes or nose, the likelihood of getting sick increases exponentially.
Studies have found that the work place can be a breeding ground for germs. Your desk could be ground zero, starting with your keyboard and phone. Contaminated common areas include, but are certainly not limited to, elevator buttons, staircase railings and door handles. An electrostatic sprayer can quickly and safely disinfect your personal space and high traffic areas to destroy harmful organisms.
…at the gym
Signs posted at the gym remind guests to wipe down equipment after each use. It’s common courtesy to wipe sweat off of a machine, but is that enough to reduce the spread of infections?
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA is a type of staph bacteria that often causes skin infections. MRSA can be passed to another person through body contact with an infected wound, by sharing personal items like a towel or using exercise equipment that has touched the infected skin. To reduce the risk of spreading MRSA and other infections, gym equipment, locker rooms and saunas should all be sanitized with an electrostatic sprayer.
…in the schools
A petri dish is defined as a container used for culturing bacteria and other microorganisms. That sounds a lot like day care centers and schools. The continuous parade of unwashed hands and shared surfaces provide the ideal environment for spreading germs and infections.
Using a handheld electrostatic sprayer can efficiently clean these surfaces thoroughly by targeting entire objects. And there’s no need to touch surfaces by hand. Plus, sanitizing the contents of a room with an electrostatic sprayer improves air quality and eliminates odors, without the strong smell of bleach that results from many spray bottle cleaning solutions.
…in many locations
The technology behind the electrostatic sprayers allows the system to work with different chemicals like biocides and disinfectants for veterinary clinics, hospitals, food processing plants and much more. The sprayers can also be used to apply insecticides or fumigants from warehouses to barns.
It’s important to adopt a cleaning protocol that helps stop infections from spreading. Traditional spray cleaning bottles do not provide complete surface coverage. Paper towels generate a lot of waste, while repeatedly using the same cloth could become ineffective. To cover more surfaces faster, with less chemicals, clean with confidence and clean with an electrostatic sprayer.
