Are the products used with the sprayer safe to use around laptops, desktops, keyboards and monitors?

The Clorox® products approved for use with the sprayer can be used around standard office equipment such as laptops, desktops, keyboards and monitors but should not be applied directly to any sensitive electronics. Before use refer to the equipment manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and disinfecting. If you are concerned about whether it can be used on a specific surface, we can test its use in an inconspicuous area first.

Why did Clorox enter the electrostatic sprayer space?

Clorox Professional Products is always looking for ways to expand the breadth and depth of our product offerings to meet the infection prevention and control needs of the professional cleaning industry. Electrostatic spraying is a proven technology that has been used in the agriculture and automotive industries for years. It has offered significant advantages in both fields by enabling technicians to more quickly and uniformly treat even the hardest areas to reach. For the professional cleaning industry, this technology could be a powerful tool to help stop the spread of infection and protect public health.

What is electrostatic spraying?

Electrostatic spraying is a process for applying a liquid to a surface. The liquid is atomized into droplets, which are charged by the application of an electrical current as they exit the sprayer. When the charged droplets approach a surface, they induce an opposite charge on the surface. This attracts the charged droplets to the surface. The charged droplets also repel each other, preventing them from coalescing into larger droplets and allowing them to uniformly cover surfaces. Droplets can even be attracted to the backs of surfaces regardless of the direction of spray, enabling them to “wrap” around a range of surface types, such as curved surfaces. In this respect, electrostatic spraying can be considered an “active” application technology in that liquid droplets are attracted to surfaces. With normal or non-charged “passive” spraying, the coverage of surfaces is determined by the direction of spray and where the droplets fall based on the effect of gravity and may result in uneven surface coverage.

The electrostatic spraying process has long been used in agriculture for the efficient application of pesticides, especially the “hidden” undersides of leaves that pesticides applied using regular non-charged spray applications are unable to reach. The more uniform coverage of the fine electrostatically charged droplets also allows for better coverage of surfaces with less pesticide compared to application with a non-charged sprayer.

Is the Clorox® Total 360® System UL Listed?

Yes. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has tested representative samples of the product and determined that it meets UL’s requirements. These requirements are based primarily on UL’s published and nationally recognized Standards for Safety. The Clorox® Total 360® System has been tested under UL 73 (USA) and CSA 22.2 No. 68 (CAN), which are standards for motor operated machinery and cover the overall safety in terms of fire, electrical shock and overall safety to people and property. UL is a global independent safety science company that conducts independent testing, validation, certification and verification of products.

Does the Clorox® Total 360® System meet OSHA guidelines for worker safety?

OSHA guidance requires that the employer ensure proper worker safety. Clorox has provided advice on the proper use and proper personal protective equipment (PPE) needed to work safely when using the approved disinfecting solutions. But each employer should evaluate compliance with OSHA. If recommended, OSHA/MHSA-approved PPE should be used.

What is the difference between the Clorox® Total 360® System versus a fogger or mister?

The Clorox® Total 360® System delivers electrostatically charged droplets that are actively attracted to surfaces, including the back sides of surfaces, regardless of the direction of spray. Misters and fogging systems deliver very small droplets that passively deposit on surfaces based on the direction of spray and the effect of gravity.
