Disinfecting & Sanitizing following the COVID-19 Pandemic

Disinfecting & Sanitizing following the COVID-19 Pandemic

In the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic, maintaining a clean and sanitized commercial space has never been more critical. As businesses adapt to the new normal, the health and safety of employees and visitors remain paramount. This blog explores the indispensable role of thorough disinfecting & sanitizing Post COVID-19, and practices in mitigating the spread of the virus in order to foster a secure environment for all.

The Current Landscape

With the persistent threat of COVID-19, businesses across various industries are tasked with implementing stringent measures to protect against the virus’s transmission. The virus can survive on surfaces for extended periods, making regular cleaning and disinfection crucial to prevent potential outbreaks within commercial spaces.

Protecting Your Workforce

A clean and sanitized workplace is a fundamental expression of care for your employees. By proactively implementing robust cleaning protocols, you demonstrate a commitment to their health and well-being. This, in turn, fosters a sense of security and trust, bolstering morale and productivity.

Mitigating Risks for Visitors

Beyond your workforce, it’s imperative to consider the safety of any visitors to your commercial space. Whether they are clients, partners, or customers, ensuring they enter a clean, well-sanitized environment not only safeguards their health but also leaves a positive and lasting impression.

Compliance With Health Regulations

Adhering to local and national health guidelines is essential for any business seeking to operate responsibly in the midst of a pandemic. Regular cleaning and sanitization practices are often mandated by health authorities and can be critical in avoiding potential fines or penalties for non-compliance.

Reducing Potential Legal Liabilities

In the event of an outbreak within your commercial space, adhering to stringent cleaning and sanitization practices can serve as a valuable defense against potential legal liabilities. Demonstrating due diligence in maintaining a clean environment can be crucial in liability cases.

Why Choose Electrostatic Disinfecting Services?


Unmatched Coverage

Electrostatic disinfecting is a game-changer when it comes to achieving comprehensive coverage. Unlike traditional cleaning methods, which rely on manual wiping and spraying, electrostatic sprayers emit positively charged disinfectant particles that are attracted to negatively charged surfaces. This ensures that every nook, cranny, and hard-to-reach area is thoroughly disinfected. From high-touch surfaces to intricate fixtures, nothing is left untouched.

Time Efficiency

In a bustling business environment, time is of the essence. Electrostatic disinfecting significantly reduces the time required to disinfect a space compared to conventional methods. The charged particles adhere evenly and quickly, allowing for a rapid and efficient disinfection process. This means minimal disruption to your business operations and a faster turnaround time for reopening.

Reduced Chemical Usage

One of the notable advantages of electrostatic disinfecting is its ability to maximize the effectiveness of disinfectant solutions while minimizing their consumption. Traditional methods often necessitate saturating surfaces with chemicals, leading to wastage and potential harm to sensitive materials. Electrostatic technology ensures that disinfectants are applied precisely, reducing both costs and environmental impact.

Enhanced Safety

With electrostatic disinfecting, safety is paramount. The process is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and safe for both humans and pets. Additionally, it reduces the risk of exposure to harmful chemicals for your cleaning staff, providing them with a safer working environment.

Long-lasting Protection

Electrostatically applied disinfectants create a thorough and lasting barrier against pathogens. The positively charged particles adhere strongly to surfaces, maintaining their efficacy for an extended period. This residual protection means that even after the initial application, your business continues to benefit from a germ-free environment.Peace of Mind

Peace of Mind

Investing in electrostatic disinfecting not only demonstrates your commitment to health and safety but also offers peace of mind to your employees and customers. Knowing that your business prioritizes their well-being can foster a sense of trust and loyalty.

SmartClean® Further Innovates with Investment in Electrostatic Technology

SmartClean® Further Innovates with Investment in Electrostatic Technology

SmartClean® takes pride in being able to tackle the toughest cleaning jobs and now with the Clorox® Total 360® System with electrostatic technology, we can do so faster and more efficiently than ever before.


DES MOINES, Iowa, May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — SmartClean® is thrilled to announce our latest investment to enhance our cleaning offerings and better tackle even the toughest jobs: the Clorox® Total 360® System. The Clorox® Total 360® System uses electrostatic technology to enable superior surface coverage and more effectively eliminate illness-causing pathogens, helping us provide our customers with top quality service and ensure the safety of their environments.

Clorox® Total 360® SystemThis flu season proved challenging for all states including Iowa – for example, in the span of a single week, three long term care facilities experienced influenza outbreaks.1 Outbreaks have severe and far-reaching effects on our customers between facility closures, absenteeism and losses in productivity. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), on average, productivity losses related to absenteeism costs employers $1,685 per employee annually. The illness-causing germs that contribute to high rates of absenteeism can survive on surfaces from days to months making comprehensive cleaning and disinfection critical to safeguarding facilities’ environments.

SmartClean® strives to provide only the best services and solutions of our customers, which is why we chose to invest in the Clorox® Total 360® System. With the addition of cutting-edge electrostatic technology, we found we could deliver our customers a higher value as it allows us to do our job faster and more efficiently – the system can cover up to 18,000 sq. ft. per hour, using 65% less solution and working up to four times faster than traditional cleaners.

The Clorox® Total 360® System works by using electrostatic technology to charge Clorox® disinfecting and sanitizing solutions. The charge attracts the solutions to surrounding surfaces with a force stronger than gravity allowing them to uniformly wrap and coat surfaces, including even the hardest-to-reach areas that can be often missed by manual cleaning.

“SmartClean® is about being able to tackle any job asked of us by a customer, no matter how tough. The Clorox® Total 360® System goes above and beyond traditional cleaning methods. Its proven electrostatic technology offers a safe way to cover more surface areas while eliminating illness-causing germs. This is a much more efficient and effective way of cleaning for our customers while saving our employees time and labor,” said Zelko Francic, President, SmartClean®.

Since purchasing the electrostatic sprayer, SmartClean® has already received positive feedback from customers. “All of our customers are asking for this product to be brought into their facilities – after the tough flu season we experienced, preventing illness is top of mind for our customers. The customers we have serviced with the Clorox® Total 360® System could not be more impressed.”

SmartClean® uses the Clorox® Total 360® System to treat a wide range of Central Iowa-area facilities –  from health and medical clinics to office buildings. There’s not a facility we clean which wouldn’t benefit from this safe and effective electrostatic technology cleaning system.
