Electrostatic sprayers have been around for a little while. First invented in the 1940s they have only recently come into common usage. Just in time for the COVID outbreak, these devices have given us more tools for our arsenal. They can help us to stay safe and to stay clean.
What is an electrostatic sprayer?
Do electrostatic sprayers actually work?
Scientific testing done prior to COVID found the electrostatic sprayers worked at least as well as regular backpack sprayers. Often the electrostatic sprayers performed better. Studies have also found that the electrostatic sprayer produces much less waste than the backpack sprayers. This is because the disinfectant is attracted to surfaces rather than hanging in the air or falling to the floor.
