Electrostatic as the Gold Standard for Disinfection:

How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?

Due to world-wide shortages of electrostatic machines, most companies are currently using pump sprayers with their sanitizers. With these regular pump sprayers, areas can be missed or not coated thoroughly due to human error which leaves viruses alive and intact. Electrostatic spray electrically charges the sanitizers that are put through these machines. This causes the sanitizers to fully wrap themselves around and fully coat surfaces evenly (think static cling). The importance of this when it comes to viruses can not be understated.

How it works:

The chemical passing through the electrostatic sprayer is converted into a positive electrical charge. The chemical then becomes attracted to all negative surfaces, covering the area, underside and backside with the sanitizer. This creates a uniform coverage across all parts of a surface, helping to effectively sanitize an area.

The main features and benefits of Electrostatic Disinfection include:

  • Improved infection control against the spread of viruses such as influenza, MRSA, SARS, HIV and many others
  • Chemicals are applied in a more controlled method, eliminating dangers of overuse
  • Helps to prevent expensive financial burdens associated with contagious healthcare infections
  • Avoids cross contamination and the movement of bacteria from one surface to another.

The world is changing at a rapid pace.

Cleaning and hygiene are at the forefront of our minds now more than ever before in our lifetime. Across, Northern California, our country, and the world, businesses and schools are closing to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Northbay Maintenance is here for you during this ever-evolving situation. Our teams are trained and ready to clean and disinfect your commercial space and educational institutions. Other cleaning companies may claim to “clean” your surfaces but we clean and disinfect, which is what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends to help contain the COVID-19 virus.

Our teams are available NOW for comprehensive, intensive COVID-19 cleaning jobs, as well as in the months to come for on-going cleaning and disinfecting as this situation evolves.

Cleaning vs. Disinfecting vs. Sanitizing

Not all “Cleaning” is equal. Before you hire a company to “clean” your office, commercial space, or university, know the difference between cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing:


This process removed germs, dirt and impurities with soap/detergent and water. This doesn’t kill germs, but removes a high number of them and minimizes the risk of spreading infections.


This process uses chemicals to kill germs but doesn’t necessarily clean the surface. It helps to lower the risk, but not eliminate it.


This process lowers germs on surfaces to a level acceptable by public health standards. This can include cleaning and disinfecting processes.
