Why Raining Kate’s for Electrostatic Disinfection?

There are a lot of companies out there offering electrostatic disinfection services right now. As a water damage restoration company, we specialize in the business of professional decontamination and disinfection. We use the innovative equipment of a restoration company and EPA approved professional grade decontamination chemicals for disinfection in addition to professional deep cleaning service.

We do far more than your average cleaning company. 

Though we offer thorough hand cleaning of high-touch surfaces, we go one big step further and use electrostatic disinfection sprayers to administer disinfectant. This proven decontamination method is efficient, and therefore affordable. Most importantly, it’s effective for eliminating the coronavirus. Our skilled technicians have years of experience, and will get the job done right.

How does Electrostatic Spraying work?

The traditional spray-and-wipe method alone is perfectly fine for eliminating surface-level dust and grime, but using one rag on multiple surfaces creates a high risk of bacterial and viral cross-contamination. For sensitive areas, a touchless application of disinfectant is required to ensure no particles are spread around or kicked up into the air (incidentally, airborne transmission is one of the major ways COVID-19 is spread). While pump-up sprayers are touchless, they only coat the surface they are sprayed upon and do not cover hard to reach areas.

Electrostatic spraying safely eliminates the virus by creating a mist that, when sprayed, automatically adheres to surfaces. An EPA-approved disinfectant solution is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. This positively charges the particles, so they’ll cling to any surface they’re aimed at (imagine all your socks sticking together inside the dryer – it’s not unlike that).

When pointing an electrostatic sprayer toward just one side of a surface, the sanitizing agent will coat all sides, because the positively charged particles will aggressively cling to negative surfaces. Surfaces that are already covered will repel the spray, making the method extremely efficient, and eliminating the danger of overuse.

Why Electrostatic Spraying?

Regular surface cleaning only hits the most exposed, easy-to-reach surfaces, and spreads potentially harmful particles around, or kicks them back up into the air. But even awkward or hard-to-reach areas are easily coated using electrostatic spraying. This is especially important for places like gyms, bars and restaurants with varied, high-traffic surfaces or large inventories requiring decontamination. If you need your business to be absolutely spotless and ensure every nook and cranny is disinfected, electrostatic spraying is right for you.

In addition to surpassing other techniques in germ-killing power, electrostatic spraying reduces the time it takes to cover and disinfect all surfaces and hard-to-reach places by 50% compared to conventional methods. Less time means a more affordable service, and we’re able to pass these savings on to you, which is more important than ever during a time when many business owners are feeling the financial impact of COVID-19.

Recurring electrostatic spraying service as a preventative measure during the pandemic can help you avoid the costly financial burdens associated with a shutdown due to a confirmed exposure in your place of business.
