How it Works

Using an electrostatic sprayer enables our EPA registered hospital grade disinfectant solution to be applied to the nooks and crannies that ordinary wipes cannot get to.  Utilizing this technology of atomizing particles allows us to achieve a more sanitized environment compared to traditional cleaning methods. Don’t just take our word for it, watch as United Airlines explains why they rely on electrostatic sprayers to stay operational.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know sanitization and/or antimicrobial coatings work?

The products we use have been in the janitorial industry for a very long time. They are the same products used in hospitals. We can provide an Adenosine Triphosphate, or ATP, test which is used to rapidly verify surfaces have been cleaned thoroughly in food manufacturing and healthcare applications, and to ensure that biofilms are not developing on the surface. Your Two Shores technician will conduct two tests, a before and after, of a high traffic area to demonstrate the immediate effectiveness of your service.

Why do we need to use Electrostatic sprayers?

Traditional cleaning is a great first step to maintaining a clean environment, but using an electrostatic sprayer takes your cleaning to a whole new level of disinfection. The sprayer allows the user to achieve a level of sanitization that traditional cleaning cannot by disinfecting large areas in a short period of time. Bacteria and germs accumulate in areas that we may not be able to access with ordinary cleaning methods. The technology of the electrostatic sprayer allows our EPA registered hospital grade disinfectant the ability to reach those hidden areas.

Where can we use Electrostatic sprayers?

Electrostatic sprayers can be used wherever traditional cleaning methods are utilized. The sprayers work well in large areas such as offices, buses, classrooms, homes, restaurants etc. Our safe, and effective solution is EPA registered and green-friendly. It is NSF certified meaning it is safe for kitchen surfaces with its no rinse formula. We can sanitize just about every surface. Electrostatic sprayers are a great addition to any cleaning method currently in use.

Is Electrostatic spray technology safe for my furnishings and surfaces?

Yes. The disinfectant we use is safe for hard surfaces, hardwood floors, carpeting and colorfast fabrics.

How often should I have my home or business sanitized?

For your home: If we apply our Turtle Shell Protection, an antimicrobial coating, then we recommend a quarterly schedule that works for the homeowner. Others prefer to have us at certain times for example, before parties, or when an individual becomes ill with a virus or infection.

If you own a vacation home, you can give your guests peace of mind during their stay knowing that your home was cleaned by your cleaning service and sanitized by Two Shores before their arrival. Sanitization should be done between all vacation stays, while the antimicrobial coating can be done quarterly.
For your business: Recommendations are based on the amount of traffic in your business. For example, if you own a restaurant or clothing store, then consider a quarterly appointment using our antimicrobial coating.
We especially recommend a sanitization for realtors who have open houses; not only will this ensure a mostly microbe-free home for visitors but will allow the homeowner peace of mind when they return to a sanitized home.

Why should I have this done?

You may say, “why should I have this done when I clean my house often or have a cleaning company?” Well, just as you brush your teeth daily, you also see a dentist once or twice a year for a better cleaning. It is the same concept.

While we cannot escape harmful microbes, an overabundance on objects used daily can contribute to unwanted illnesses. In today’s climate of new or mutated viruses, it is wise to have a bit of extra protection. Superbugs resistant to antibiotics are becoming the new normal. We all want to keep our communities safe and healthy.

According to a study performed by NSF International, in collaboration with the Charles River Accugenix Group, conducted a study to investigate microbial hotspots, uncover the types of culturable microogranisms, and reveal the misconceptions regarding the most contaminated objects in the household. 30 daily use objects in “high-touch” locations around the home from 17 households were obtained and sampled. From these 30 objects, 340 bacterial isolates were identified using three different platforms.

How long does it take to sanitize?

Two Shores Sanitization estimates that it will take approximately 30 minutes for spaces that are approximately 2,000 square feet. Larger facilities, or environments with a lot of high-touch surface area, like restaurants or fitness centers, may take longer.

How does your antimicrobial coating work?

We use our electrostatic sprayers to apply our product to high-touch surfaces. The coating forms an invisible shield on the surface. When the coating comes in contact with a microbe, it uses microbial spikes to pierce the microbe disrupting its RNA and causing its death. You can be certain the most stubborn of germs like C. Difficile and double-walled viruses, bacteria, molds, and mildew will be killed.

How do I prepare my home or business before your service?

It is best to cover fish tanks and turn off their filter until the product dries.  While the products are safe and non-toxic for pets, we like to take extra precautions.  If you have wool rugs or silk curtains, it is best to cover these items or make certain our technicians know not to spray them.  You do not have to be out of your home during the process, but you should be away from the spraying field until it dries.  This typically takes 10 minutes for the sanitization and 10 minutes for the antimicrobial coating.

What should I do once sanitization is complete?

Feel good about living or working in a completely disinfected environment. With this type of technology, there is no need to wipe down surfaces or rinse off counters. The coating only takes 10 minutes to dry and will be complete before the professionals at Two Shores Sanitization leave.
