Preventing the Spread of Covid-19 with Electrostatics

UK facility and property management services provider Pinnacle Group has launched a COVID-Secure cleaning service which utilises the latest electrostatic technology.

Providing antiviral protection for a period of 25 days, the treatment ensures corporate, office, residential, and school spaces are safe for use and remain sanitised even as surfaces are touched and used.

Traditional cleaning methods currently being used to tackle COVID-19 are ineffective because they deliver very small droplets that passively deposit on surfaces based on the direction of spray; resulting in uneven coverage. Conversely, electrostatic application delivers charged droplets which are actively attracted to surfaces and guarantee a complete disinfection coverage.

The solution, which contains no harsh chemicals, provides a physical barrier to disrupt viruses attempting to cling onto surfaces. The cleaning process has been found to kill germs on the skin for up to 24 hours, even after washing, and can be applied to door handles, textiles and in dining environments.

Neil Fergus, managing director, FM at the Pinnacle Group, says: “We are pleased to be able to respond quickly to the COVID-19 outbreak and introduce our Specialist COVID Cleaning Service as part of the UK’s recovery.  Our dedicated team and innovative cleaning practises are enabling organisations to support returns to work, school and play.”

Waltham Forest Housing Association (WFHA) is one of the first housing associations in the UK to use the innovative technology at their head office.  Nicky Anderson, operations m, says: “As part of WFHA’s recovery from the COVID-19 outbreak we want to make sure that our staff and residents are comforted that we are using Pinnacle’s cutting-edge antiviral cleaning technology at our offices.  The antimicrobial surface protection allows peace of mind that surfaces stay sanitised and safe for up to 25 days. Pinnacle, our long-term cleaning partner, provided an efficient and professional service.”

Pinnacle is also offering Zero Contact Solutions which deliver social distancing technology into shared spaces by eliminating contact points to minimise potential prospects for transmission of the coronavirus.
