Amid the escalating Covid-19 crisis, the local cleaning products supplier has introduced the Eco Statics Cleaning & Disinfection System to provide an innovative solution to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
It is a lightweight, cordless and portable electrostatic sprayer that adds an electric charge to the high level sporicidal disinfectant fluids when sprayed.
The chemical solution comes out of the device with positively-charged ion droplets and allows the spray to cling to hidden, vertical and hard-to-reach surfaces, fully enveloping the object with a 360-degree coating.
This delivers a rapid and effective disinfection result to all surfaces and provides maximum protection for up to 28 days.
The Eco Statics Cleaning & Disinfection System is now available from Jeff Supplies in handheld or backpack models. It is most effective when used with its range of E-Shield cleaning solutions - Ultra and Control.
Protect, another product in the range, is an alcohol-free, fragrance-free sanitiser with the active ingredient benzalkonium chloride, which is suitable for disinfecting hands.
It simultaneously keeps hands moisturised with a unique non-drying, emollient and conditioning formulation.
All these cleaning solutions are made in Britain and are compliant with CE marking, European Standards and EPA certification. They are non-toxic, non-flammable, non-corrosive, non-irritant, food/chlorine/alcohol-free and leave no residue.
