Electrostatic Disinfection – Sunnyvale, TX
Superior Disinfection for a Cleaner Dental Office
The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused many dental patients to wonder, “What is my dentist doing to keep me safe and healthy during my appointments?” Practices use many different means for sterilizing instruments, disinfecting surfaces, and limiting the spread of bioaerosols. However, not many of them use electrostatic disinfection — but your holistic dentist in Sunnyvale does. What exactly is electrostatic disinfection, how does it work, and how can it benefit you? This page answers those questions.
What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?
Electrostatic disinfection, sometimes called electrostatic spray surface cleaning, involves spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto objects and surfaces. It uses a special cleaning solution that combines with air gets and becomes positively charged as it exits the sprayer. The positive charge of the atoms in the mist causes it to cling to and thoroughly coat the hard, non-porous surfaces that it touches.
How Does It Work?
Dr. Langston of Long Creek Dental has invested in the Victory Innovations Professional Cordless Electrostatic Sprayer. This unique and patented machine uses a minimal amount of liquid but offers optimum surface coverage. All our team has to do is carry the machine around the office and aim it at any surfaces or objects we wish to disinfect.
As we spray the mist around our dental office, it does more than just cling to the surfaces of objects that we could easily clean with basic disinfecting wipes. The atoms in the spray actively wrap around surfaces. They cling to hard-to-reach places, including small nooks and crevices and the underside of objects. It thus helps us produce a much cleaner dental office environment than we could if we were disinfecting everything by hand.
Benefits of Electrostatic Disinfection
Some of the most outstanding benefits of electrostatic disinfection include:
- It is much more thorough than disinfecting surfaces by hand.
- It can play a huge role in eliminating dangerous pathogens, including MRSA, HIV, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, and more.
- It uses a minimal amount of chemical cleaning agents, which reduces the risk that such agents will be overused and irritate patients who are sensitive to them.
- It is quite fast, a fact that helps us to operate a very efficient dental practice.
