How Airplanes Are Cleaned Today
By Mike Arnot, NY Times
Move over, on-time performance. The new key standard for airlines and passengers is: “How clean is it?”
The airlines are busily fine-tuning their cleaning procedures — where they clean, how frequently and with which tools. To get a sense of what’s changed, I recently witnessed the disinfection and cleaning process performed from start to finish onboard a Delta Air Lines jet at Kennedy International Airport in New York.
Unlike with a spray bottle, the (electrostatic) nozzle imparts a positive charge to droplets of disinfectant, each 85 microns in size — roughly the thickness of an average human hair. The electrical charge causes the individual droplets to repel against each other and spread out over a wide area. Simultaneously, the droplets are attracted to negatively (or neutrally) charged nonporous surfaces — such as an airplane seat or side walls.
The charged disinfectant molecules get everywhere that a spray bottle and rag cannot. “It’s a comprehensive coat,” Mr. Robertson said. “Electrostatic spraying simplifies the disinfecting process and mitigates human error. It gives the workers better tools to do their job better and lets the chemical do its job.” Read Article Here
No Bleach and Dirty Rags
The old job of custodians was tidying up. The new one is protecting against a killer through disinfection.
As the coronavirus continues to rage and businesses and workplaces weigh the risks of reopening, janitors have a warning about the current state of cleaning in the United States. Many say they have not been given enough resources to fight the pathogen, or, in a few cases, even hot water to wash their hands. They are often not told if someone has tested positive where they are working, many said in interviews, making it difficult to protect themselves and others.

Should You Sanitize Your Hotel Room?
Disinfect high touch points, even though housekeeping has done it already.
Hotels are reopening again after months of coronavirus-fueled closures and promising strict cleaning procedures. But here’s what you can do to add an extra layer of safety—and peace of mind. And, even though, housekeeping has disinfected high touch points, do it again. High-touch points include TV remotes, light switches, faucets, and handles. Many hotels have also gotten rid of germ-collecting room amenities, like magazines and throw pillows, and have replaced glasses with single-use plastic cups. In addition to that, many hotels are using electrostatic sprayers that completely sanitize surfaces within a matter of minutes and are leaving a seal on the room so it remains untouched until guests’ arrival.

Many hotels around the world, including the Wynn in Las Vegas and the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills use the EMist Electrostatic Disinfectant Sprayers for enhanced disinfection measures. Recently, the Wynn was named one of the 12 cleanest hotels according to travel agents.
