The Definition of Cleaning
By definition, cleaning is the action of making something clean, free of dirt, marks or mess by washing, wiping and brushing. It's the process of removing unwanted substances from an object or environment.
The Definition of Disinfecting
By definition, disinfecting is to cleanse by using a chemical to destroy, inactivate or significantly reduce the concentration of harmful germs, bacteria, viruses and fungi.
Why Electrostatic Disinfecting Treatment is the smarter choice:
The Electrostatic Disinfecting Treatment works by first turning a High Concentration Liquid Disinfectant into Small Droplets. Then, each Droplet gets electrically charged, which causes them to be drawn to and adhere to surfaces with a force stronger than gravity. This kills all viruses in the air and surfaces in two minutes and will hold and adhere for up to thirty days. This creates a superior coverage over traditional methods and as a result, a best-in-class protection against many of the most harmful bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19.
