New handheld electrostatic device helps professional cleaners fight Covid-19
Professional cleaning companies can now further enhance their cleaning regimes to protect against the threat of Covid-19 with a new handheld electrostatic fogger.
Global hygiene and pest control products manufacturer Pelsis Group has launched the Hurricane ES, an electrostatic fogger that disperses disinfectant across potentially contaminated surfaces to provide widespread coverage.
It uses electrostatic technology to charge tiny droplets of disinfectant solution to create an ultra-low volume fog. The electrostatically charged micro particles repel each other as they are dispersed into the atmosphere at high speeds, delivering consistent coverage and stronger contact with all surfaces for optimum cleaning.
With lockdowns continuing into 2021 and strict cleaning routines enforced, hygiene is top of the agenda for many businesses and organisations. Electrostatic fogging is a new method of fighting Covid-19 as part of an enhanced cleaning and sanitisation process. Carried out correctly, fogging is one of the most effective ways to deep clean and rid an area of viruses and germs.
"We're very excited make the Hurricane ES available to professional cleaning companies operating in the UK and across Europe," says Pelsis Group chief executive, Andrew Milner. "The electrostatic functionality of the product gives it the edge and is perfect for high touch at risk areas.
"Our technical teams have worked hard to get all the necessary CE approvals for the Hurricane ES. The result is a highly-effective product which we believe makes a real difference for professional cleaners looking to provide enhance cleaning regimes for their clients in the fight against Covid-19."
Initially made in Jackson, Mississippi, by the Pelsis Group's American-based business Curtis Dyna-fog, the fogger is also going to be manufactured at the group's UK facility in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, to fulfill domestic and European demand.
Pelsis Group, which owns the Insect-O-Cutor brand, has a turnover of around £150m and employs more than 500 people across 15 sites located throughout the UK, Europe, China and the US.
