When it comes to cleaning surfaces and objects, traditional dry and wet dusting tends to be the first methods that come to mind. While these cleaning techniques are tried and true, they do little more than spread filth around, unless the rags used are washed regularly. Dry dusting kicks up resting particles, redistributing them into the air and onto other surfaces. Wet dusting can involve harmful cleaning chemicals and make it hard to reach certain spots or objects. For sensitive places, like clean rooms, R&D labs, healthcare facility cleaning and schools, there’s a more effective method for stripping dirt, dust and germs from surfaces that require specialized sanitation: electrostatic spray.

Let’s start with a quick story: In the 19th century, Ignaz Semmelweiss worked as an obstetrics assistant in Vienna General Hospital. Soon after beginning work, he discovered that women who were treated in the doctor-run maternity ward were becoming ill and dying at an alarmingly higher rate than those who were treated in the mid-wife run ward.
The doctors were often coming directly from performing autopsies and weren’t taking any steps in between for proper sanitation. He, and Florence Nightingale around the same time, pushed for strict hand-washing regulations but were met with resistance. It wasn’t until the 1980s when the US Center for Disease Control implemented important hygiene guidelines requiring strict hand-washing procedures and regulations; but keeping your hands clean is only the first basic step of ensuring cleanliness in a healthcare environment.
