How does Electrostatic Cleaning protect your workforce, customers and the general public?

How does Electrostatic cleaning protect your workforce, customers and the community?

Electrostatic cleaning kills 99.99% of all known bacteria and viruses, so once our service is carried out in your workplace, employees and customers can have peace of mind that they are safe in your environment. 

The treatments we provide not only provide peace of mind and protection for staff, visitors and users of your facilities but also can help reduce staff absenteeism. This has a material benefit to your staffing costs or other associated issues which arise from staff being poorly.

How can you protect against Norovirus in schools, nurseries and workplaces?

How can you protect against Norovirus in schools, nurseries and workplaces?

The best way to protect staff and children from Norovirus is to kill the virus which causes this sickness bug on the surfaces through which it can be transferred. This means a deep clean is required that treats all touchpoints in the environment. Any treatment also needs to provide lasting protection where possible. This means the bug can’t be passed onto others as the virus dies when it meets the surface. If there is no lasting protection in the products applied, surfaces really need to be cleaned constantly to prevent the bug from being spread between people.

ElectroClean provides the ideal solution in the prevention of norovirus spreading as our deep clean kills norovirus on every surface and then protects that surface for up to 28 days before it needs to be treated again. 

What are the advantages and disadvantages of an electrostatic deep cleaning?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of an electrostatic deep cleaning?

The big advantages of Electrostatic are as follows:

  • Minimised downtime for treated areas.
  • Speed of treatment of large areas with many potential touchpoints.
  • 360o wrapping technology is used on all surfaces 
  • Effectiveness of solution, killing 99.99% of virus and bacteria.
  • Up to 28 days surface protection from viruses and bacteria.
  • Reduce staff sickness rates
  • Protect customers, employees and the community who use your organisation, facilities or fleet.
  • Eco-friendly and non-toxic solutions.
  • Can be used in almost any environment and on any surface, it’s even food safe.

The disadvantages of Electrostatic cleaning are:

  • High cost of equipment to carry out electrostatic deep cleaning.
  • High cost of cleaning solutions.
  • The higher costs mean most facilities or fleet managers are best off using a 3rd party contractor like ElectroClean to complete deep cleans rather than doing works in-house.

Why is Electrostatic much safer for the environment?

Why is Electrostatic much safer for the environment?

Electrostatic is environmentally friendly as the chemicals used are non-toxic, non-corrosive and simply decompose into oxygen and water. This means there are no harmful chemicals that leak into the environment making it an eco-friendly treatment for your environments.

How does Electrostatic Technology work?

How does Electrostatic Technology work?

The electrostatic cleaning method creates a static charge in the fine spray of solution particles allowing for a superior layer of disinfectant solution to “stick” to the surface of any object and the microbes, bacteria and viruses. Our 360wrapping technology is by far the best way to perform a deep clean of your environment.

When or why do I need a deep clean rather than just a normal clean?

When or why do I need a deep clean rather than just a normal clean?

A deep clean is designed to treat all surfaces in an environment and protect against what you can’t see such as viruses and bacteria. It is not designed to leave an environment sparkling clean to the eye. A normal clean on the other hand tends to treat certain surfaces and is done to make things look clean even though surfaces may not be virus or bacteria free.

We like to use a petrol pump as an example, these are often wipped down to appear clean but after this is done and someone uses the pump it has bacteria on it again so even though it may appear clean there is still a risk of the surface spread of virus or bacteria. A deep clean service like ours on the other hand ensures that the petrol pump is free from all bacteria and viruses once treated and protects anyone using that pump for up to 28 days. 

Who makes the equipment and chemicals used by ElectroClean?

Who makes the equipment and chemicals used by ElectroClean?

Our electrostatic cleaning equipment is patented by EcoSatics and the cleaning solutions are from Teccare. This equipment and solution combination has been tested to work in perfect harmony and received all certifications as to its effectiveness against virus and bacteria.

What types of surface can you clean using electrostatic cleaning?

What types of surface can you clean using electrostatic cleaning?

By using electrostatic cleaning, we can treat all surfaces and floors. The solution also treats airborne virus and bacteria as it is sprayed and can also be used on textiles or other normally difficult to treat surfaces like curtains or other soft furnishings.

What is Electrostatic Cleaning?

What is Electrostatic Cleaning?

Electrostatics is the process of adding an electrical charge to the liquid droplets when they are sprayed; think of the static charge you create by rubbing a balloon on your hair and the static effect created. Just like magnets, the solution particles also repel each other and move across a surface and cover the full surface area of the object being treated. This means the droplets of cleaning solution move across the surface of the object being treated and provide a 360o wrapping of the object. Other treatments simply apply a solution to the surface of the object which then runs off before the antibacterial effect of the solution has time to work, or the solution doesn’t find the dark spots of the object so only the face of the object is treated leaving untreated surfaces and dark spots.

Does the ElectroClean service protect against Coronavirus?

Does the ElectroClean service protect against Coronavirus?

Yes, our solutions have been fully tested and are clinically proven to protect against Coronavirus. 

What is the best cleaning schedule to fully protect surfaces from viruses and bacteria?

What is the best cleaning schedule to fully protect surfaces from viruses and bacteria?

We recommend that an electrostatic deep clean is undertaken at least once a month – this is the length of time that surfaces are protected by a deep clean treatment. However, to ensure maximum protection and peace of mind over the course of a month, we recommend TECcare Daily solution be used for daily cleans by your general cleaning contractor or in-house teams. This product is a degreaser and antibacterial general surface cleaning product designed to work in perfect harmony with the deep clean treatment applied. This regular cleaning schedule ensures that members of the public and your teams are always fully protected from any potential surface spread of bacteria and viruses.

How long are surfaces protected after a deep clean treatment?

How long are surfaces protected after a deep clean treatment?

Surfaces are protected for up to 28 days after our deep clean solution is applied. There are exceptions to this - for example, if a surface is cleaned after a deep clean with a heavy-duty degreaser, the antibacterial protective layer can be removed. To maximise the long-lasting protection for any surface we recommend that TECcare Daily solution is used for daily cleans. This product is a degreaser and antibacterial general surface cleaning product designed to work in perfect harmony with the deep clean treatment applied.

What virus and bacteria does a deep clean treatment kill?

What virus and bacteria does a deep clean treatment kill?

Our products have been tested on, and are proven to kill, COVID-19, influenza, norovirus, salmonella, Syphilis, HIV, SARS, Avian influenza, respiratory syncytial virus, E.Coli, listeria, bird flu, scarlett fever, hand foot and mouth, clostridium perfringens, pseudomonas aeruginosa and many, many more. Please ask for our technical specs for further info on what bugs and nasties our treatments kill and protect you from.

Why is this product different to a standard clean using Dettol or other antibacterial spray?

Why is this product different to a standard clean using Dettol or other antibacterial spray?

In terms of the solution we use, it kills 99.99% of virus and bacteria just the same as Dettol however an ElectroClean deep clean is hugely different in terms of the coverage and lasting protection it provides.

Firstly, our solutions use 360o electrostatic wrapping technology which means that when the cleaning solution hits a 3D surface, the electrically charged particles move across the surface of the object to cover every aspect of that object (top, bottom and sides). This means there are no cleaning dark spots and all surfaces are treated easily and quickly. This level of coverage would be almost impossible for a cleaner to replicate without using the Electrostatic technology we use or many, many hours of elbow grease.

The areas and surfaces we can treat in a short space of time are hugely different to a traditional clean. We treat all touchpoints across a large area (up to 500m an hour). This would take a traditional cleaner hour’s, if not days to provide the same level of coverage. Typically, we can cover 10X the floor area of a traditional cleaner each hour.

A final key point is when a cleaner applies Dettol to a surface, they wipe it away instantly, meaning that although the disinfectant should technically kill 99% of bacteria, the solution cannot take full effect or protect after it has been applied. This is not the case with electrostatic cleaning, our solutions are not wiped, they are left to dry and leave a protective antibacterial layer on the surface which will protect that surface for up to 30 days after treatment from all virus and bacteria.

 

Can you prove this service works?

Can you prove this service works? 

Yes, all equipment and cleaning solutions are fully certified and tested through clinical trials and adhere to numerous ISO and EU regulations. We have a separate technical specification document which we can send with details of all the certifications, testing and proofs of what the technologies we use can do in terms of deep cleaning power.

How much should a deep clean cost?

How much should a deep clean cost?

We have seen prices for deep cleans ranging from £1 a sq/m to £3 a sq/m but ElectroClean feel this is way too high in 95% of cases. The price of a deep clean should be reflective of the time, equipment and solutions used as these are the biggest costs involved in the service. 

With ElectroClean, the time savings are huge compared to other more traditional deep cleans but the equipment costs and solutions are far more expensive; however, this doesn’t mean our prices are higher compared to other services - they are actually lower.

As an example, we have a contract in place with a group of nurseries which have 3 properties of around 300sq/m in size each. This work takes our team approximately one hour to perform a full antibacterial deep clean of all touch points and surfaces in the buildings. The cost for each property in this case on a 12-month contract for a monthly clean is just £150 + VAT, which works out at just £0.50 sq/m, making it half the price compared to other services.

When ElectroClean price work we survey how long the work will take, the complexity of the area being treated and the volume of solutions we will need – we then base your price on these factors.

What we have seen is our prices for the same level of sanitisation compared to other options make our service significantly cheaper with the main factor being how much quicker we can perform the deep cleans using the electrostatic technology. The knock-on benefit to you as a customer of our lower price and speed of service is not only the reduced cost but also the shorter down time for your facilities. For example, you can use a treated area almost immediately after we have completed the deep clean, which is a huge added benefit compared to other deep cleaning options.

How long does it take to carry out a deep clean?
