For challenging areas or spaces that require more thorough disinfecting, CBI’s Clean Method utilizes advanced cleaning techniques.

Beyond our normal janitorial services, we can provide electrostatic disinfecting and fogging disinfecting. These two commercial cleaning services utilize special machines to vaporize disinfectants to more thoroughly cover all surface areas.

Electrostatic Disinfecting
Electrostatic disinfecting (electrostatic cleaning) is a touchless application of chemicals used after janitorial services to efficiently and evenly coat surfaces with a disinfecting solution.

  • The electrostatic applicator applies a negative charge to the disinfecting solution as it leaves the application tool.
  • Since charged molecules repel each other, they create a more evenly distributed disinfectant application, which is attracted to the applied surface, thereby creating 360-degrees of coverage.
  • These charged particles create a web of disinfectant over the applied surfaces with a micron size between 40 to 110 microns.
  • This service is particularly important because germs and bacteria hide in hard-to-reach areas, which are reached during an electrostatic disinfecting service.

Benefits of Electrostatic Disinfecting:

  • Covers 360-degrees of applied surfaces
  • Reduces the risk of cross contamination because of touch application processes
  • Allows for disinfectants to hold their cationic charge, which prevents dripping
  • Evenly distributed application allows for required disinfectant dwell times
  • Reaches hard-to-reach cleaning surfaces and spaces
  • Uses on average 65% less chemicals per square foot than standard cleaning (eco-friendly service option)

Fogging Disinfecting:

Fogging disinfecting is similar to the touchless application technique of electrostatic disinfecting but is different in two ways.

  • Fogging disinfecting utilizes nearly the same technology without charging the cleaning molecules when they leave the machine.
  • Fogging cleaning uses larger particle sizes, compared to an electrostatic cleaning process. In many instances, a fogging application can be used in the same situations and settings as an electrostatic service.

Benefits of Fogging Disinfecting:

  • Covers more surface area with disinfect per square inch, based on larger micron size
  • Treats a cubic volume of air in a space
  • Reaches hard-to-reach surface areas and spaces
  • Reduces the risk of cross contamination because of touch application processes
  • Efficiently sanitizes larger service areas, compared to other vapor cleaning methods
