Planning and Responding to COVID-19
When COVID-19 hit facility managers quickly became one of the most important roles in the decision-making process for every organization. They are now tasked with figuring out the best solutions to keep employees safe and their facilities properly disinfected. Minimizing the risk of infection in buildings has become the sole focus of facility managers. Basic hygiene has always been part of the job, but now it has become as essential as having electricity and running water.
While cleaning and disinfecting are keeping tenants of buildings safer and healthier, they are also putting facility managers at higher risk of contracting COVID-19 and other illnesses. Facility managers are recommending that if employees can work from home, they should. If the employees cannot work remotely, workplace limitations should be created to limit interaction. Creating more separation between employees who work closely together, and increasing the amount of hand sanitizer available are just two of the things being implemented to stop the spread of infection.
Facility Management Statistics
According to Forbes Magazine, absenteeism due to illness, and the loss of productivity as a result, cost American businesses over $575 billion dollars every year. To remain competitive, companies and manufacturers both large and small are seeking better solutions to keep more workers on the job and facility managers are being asked to meet the challenge.
The EMist® patented Electrostatic Disinfectant Application System is superior to traditional spray and wipe methods by ensuring exposed surfaces can be frequently and comprehensively disinfected in a fast, easy and efficient way. And because one gallon of solution can cover up to 54,000 square feet of surface area per hour, facility managers can save up to 50% on the cost of solution and 45% on labor.
Preventing the spread of germs
Most surface areas are neutral or negative. Because most surface areas are neutral or negative, the EM360’s positively charged system optimizes surface adhesion and attraction (electromagnetic theory). The dispersed droplets spread out more evenly and seek out negative (-) or neutrally charged surfaces (neutral surfaces have the same number of protons as electrons – a neutral object can be polarized by a charged object and create attraction). The disinfectant is more targeted, provides more consistent coverage with less waste, and like two magnets, attracted to the oppositely charged surface with remarkable force.
The patented EMist® system places a powerfully positive charge on the chemical disinfectant as it leaves the spray nozzle creating greater adhesion and attraction (electromagnetic theory). The disinfectant is more targeted, provides more consistent coverage with less waste.
TruElectrostatic for TruDisinfection™.
Our EMist® system applies disinfectant solutions with its patented technology to surfaces using electrostatic induction charging. The liquid droplets are positively charged by the spray system which is then driven to the surface target area in a consistent manner allowing for comprehensive uniform coverage. Simply put, our technology applies more evenly, sticks to surfaces like a magnet, and reduces waste drastically.
