Using Technology To Keep Your Business Clean & Safe

What are Antimicrobial Coatings?

Antimicrobial coatings are a type of surface treatment that can prevent the growth of bacteria, viruses, mould, mildew and other microorganisms.

These coatings can be applied to a wide range of surfaces, including medical equipment, food processing facilities, and public spaces such as hospitals and schools shared office space and gyms.

What are Hydrophobic Coatings?

These coatings are applied to surfaces, and they create a barrier that causes water droplets to bead up and roll off, rather than being absorbed into the surface.

They can be used to protect surfaces from water damage, to make surfaces easier to clean, and to increase the durability of products.

“A Breakthrough in Innovation”

What is the Difference Between Disinfectants and Antimicrobial Coatings?

While both disinfectants and antimicrobial coatings will kill 99.99% of harmful pathogens that they come into contact with, there are two distinct differences between them.

Disinfectants are only effective when wet and rely on dwell time (the amount of time that they are in contact with the pathogen). So if you were to spray a disinfectant onto a surface and immediately wipe it away with a cloth, bacteria can still remain on the surface and also transfer onto the cloth and be spread around with the wiping motion.

Disinfectants also do not remain on the surface continuing to kill any harmful pathogens that land on it, unlike antimicrobial coatings.

What is the difference between fogging and electrostatic spraying?

Although similar disinfectants can be used in both a fogger and in electrostatic spraying to kill harmful pathogens such as Covid-19, the technology behind the two systems, and the end results, are significantly different.

Fogging systems deliver a wet mist of larger particles that passively deposit on surfaces based on the direction of the spraying, the droplets do not wrap around surfaces or objects as in electrostatic spraying, and due to the effect of gravity tend not to coat surfaces evenly which can result in longer dwell times and some hard-to-reach areas being missed.

The Electrostatic Spraying system applies small electrostatically charged droplets that wrap around surfaces, fully coating them regardless of the direction of spray.

Because the small particles in the spray are electrostatically charged, they cling to all the surfaces.

Many people confuse Fogging with Electrostatic Spraying but Fogging does not use an electrostatic charge and the disinfectant is applied in much larger particles so it goes on wet, uses more of the chemical, and takes longer to dry.

Fogging tends to be done out of hours or during the night because of the amount of chemical used, it can be very odorous and remains wet for some time.

As electrostatic spraying uses less chemical, and has a finer spray, areas do not have to be vacated while spraying is taking place. Any surfaces that have been sprayed will be touch dry in considerably less time to that of fogging.

Have you had a Covid outbreak in your office or facility?

If you have staff members having to isolate after contracting covid it can be a strain on your business. Notwithstanding the additional costs in sick pay for your company and the loss of productivity. Colleagues may become apprehensive to return to your office if they think that there is a risk of catching it.

Along with reducing the risk of spreading covid in your office or facility, Covid deep cleans and the regular spraying of antimicrobial coatings can dramatically reduce the spread of harmful pathogens that can not only stop your staff from catching covid but also colds and flu.

The costs to your company when staff have to isolate or are off sick.

If you are not keeping your premises clean and safe for your staff you are increasing the risk of staff not only catching and spreading Covid across your facility but also colds and flu which have hidden costs associated with staff not being at work whether it is a loss in productivity, poorer customer service or additional sick pay.

By the regular use of antimicrobial coatings on high touch areas such as light switches, door handles, desks, kitchen breakout areas and toilets. You are reducing the risk of spreading any infection and cross-contamination.

Cheshire Specialist Cleaning specialises in providing Covid deep cleans following an outbreak at your office or facility. Keeping your staff and visitors safe and reduces the additional costs to your business when you have staff off ill. Whether it is an out of hours fogging service you require for your office or gym or a regular commercial cleaning service, we have you covered.
