Infectious Disease Infection Control Certified

Fully clean and properly sanitize to rid all surfaces of the COVID-19 virus and any other influenzas using EPA approved products and serviced to CDC code.

Maintaining a sanitary workplace is crucial for every type of facility. Keeping surfaces clean and disinfected reduces the risk and spread of infectious diseases, increases employee safety, health, and morale, enhances a business’ reputation, and helps facilities comply with various industry standards and regulations. And today, as the entire world works to combat the spread and severity of COVID-19 (coronavirus 2019), proper disinfection is more crucial than ever.

What’s Included in Our Disinfection Services?

We offer a range of disinfectant solutions, tailor-made for each client’s specific needs and concerns. From preventative maintenance to remediation, we have you covered. Our disinfection services include:

  • Remediation Disinfection and Cleaning: These services are designed to safely disinfect and restore any area(s) that may have been affected by someone suspected or confirmed to have been infected by a given contagious disease. Our remediation program is compliant with CDC regulations, using only disinfectants and techniques approved by this organization.

  • Misting and Electrostatic Spray Disinfection: We offer misting and electrostatic spray disinfection for facilities struggling to disinfect certain hard-to-reach areas and frequently touched surfaces. These techniques involve the use of manual or automatic misting or fogging devices that circulate the entire area of a given room with an environmentally-safe disinfectant.

  • Deep Disinfection: Deep disinfection is perfect for when facilities are temporarily shut down and/or empty, because the methods and products employed may present a short-term health risk to those not wearing the proper PPE (personal protective equipment). Plus, an empty facility ensures that the process doesn’t undergo any interference or setbacks.

  • On-Site Disinfection: Businesses that cannot close their doors for whatever reason can benefit from having a professional disinfection technician on-site during operational hours. Customers and staff will gain peace of mind knowing that a disinfectant specialist is nearby to properly clean and disinfect touchpoints at regular intervals.

 
 

Since introducing electrostatic disinfection as a new service offering, we’ve received many questions from customers. A short answer to all the questions we’ve received is that electrostatic disinfection allows us to effectively and safely disinfect more square feet in less time.

How does electrostatic disinfection work?

Electrostatic disinfection is a quick and easy way to achieve 360 degree, touchless disinfection. While it may sound complicated, the technology is simple to understand.

 

Electrostatic sprayers use positive and negative charges to make disinfecting solutions electromagnetically stick to targeted surfaces. For example, no matter which angle you disinfect a surface from, the charge created by the electrostatic sprayer makes the disinfectant wrap around and cling to the entire surface.

What does it fight against? 

This will depend on the disinfectants used. Our electrostatic sprayers kill 99.99% of bacteria found in biofilm, C. Difficile, TB and other viral and fungal infections in just 4 minutes.

 

Is it effective against COVID-19?

Yes! They have 1 minute kill claims for coronavirus.

Aren’t you already disinfecting my facility? 

Yes, Empire Services personnel are trained in touch point disinfection. This is the disinfection of commonly touched surfaces like phones, handles, facets and horizontal surfaces.

 

Electrostatic disinfection is not a replacement to your regularly scheduled service. But it is a great addition that guarantees that all surfaces, even small areas or upholstered surfaces that can’t get wiped down, are disinfected. Remember, it’s not just disinfecting the tops of surfaces but underneath and all the way around too.

How long does electrostatic disinfection take? 

This will depend on the size of the area being disinfected. It takes approximately 30-45 minutes to clean and disinfect each room in a hospital using traditional methods. This system can reduce cleaning and disinfecting times by 40%.

How long does it last?

Electrostatic disinfection does not create a protective barrier. It disinfects, or kills, unwanted pathogens from every targeted surface, but won’t protect those surfaces from becoming infected again.

That being said, institutions like medical facilities, schools and gyms may require electrostatic disinfection more frequently because they are introduced to new, potentially harmful pathogens on a daily basis.

Is it safe to use on/around electronics? 

Electrostatic disinfection can be safely performed around electronics such as laptops, monitors and keyboards as long as it is not applied directly at close range. We recommend putting away paper documents, along with anything else you don’t want sprayed before the scheduled service.

Is it safe for the person applying it? 

It is safe for the person applying and all people present during the service. Masks and protective gear are not required, but may be used especially in medical settings where certain protective gear is required.

 

How do I request a demo/more information about electrostatic disinfection?

There are many benefits to electrostatic disinfection. It’s time-saving, it is effective and touchless application means zero cross contamination. If you are ready to protect yourself and others, you can request more information about our electrostatic disinfection program.
