ABOUT COASTAL SANITIZERS

Coastal Sanatizers is a division of Helix Enterprises LLC, based on St.Simons Island, GA. In 2016 we divided Helix into two separate divisions; Specialty Cleaning Company, with a focus on residential, rental and commercial cleaning services and Prestige Property Watch, a key-holder/concierge service for absentee home owners. Coastal Sanitizers was started out of the 2020 corona virus pandemic. We felt there was a need to serve the community using a reliable and extensive method to disinfect and sanitize our clients' properties. 

The recent events of COVID-19 has made us all evaluate our daily routines, interactions and personal/public sanitation. Because of our experience in the cleaning industry, it was a natural fit to add Electrostatic Disinfection to our suite of services.

How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?


Electrostatic spray is electrically charged, allowing the appropriate sanitizers and disinfectants to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces. As the sanitizing solution exits the electrostatic sprayer, it is given a positive electrical charge. The droplets then become attracted to all negative surfaces, covering the visible area, underside and backside, with the sanitizing agent. Surfaces that are already covered will repel the spray, making the method extremely efficient.




What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?


Electrostatic spray surface cleaning is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spray uses a specialized solution that is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains positively charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they are aimed at.
For awkwardly shaped objects or hard to reach places, cleaning staff only have to point and spray. The mist will coat surfaces evenly, and envelope objects—even if the mist is only sprayed from one side. After the spray is applied, the sanitizing agent works to disinfect the covered surfaces. For this reason, electrostatic spray is an excellent solution for germ and contaminant ridden areas.




Is Your Sanitizer EPA Approved?


This product (EPA Registration #6836-302) is included on EPA’s List N, which meets EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. EPA approved products are unable to claim efficacy against any pathogens unless the agency has approved and registered the product after reviewing and supporting data that make said claims. Every EPA product approved by the agency must have an EPA registration number. The EPA registration for this commercial sanitizer is 6836-302-1677.




How Long Does Electrostatic Disinfection Last?


Electrostatic disinfection does not create a protective barrier. It disinfects, or kills, unwanted pathogens from every targeted surface, but will not protect those surfaces from becoming infected again. With that said, institutions like medical facilities, schools and gyms may require electrostatic disinfection more frequently because they are introduced to new, potentially harmful pathogens on a daily basis.




Is Electrostatic Disinfection Safe to Use Around Electronics?


Electrostatic disinfection can be safely applied around electronics such as laptops, monitors and keyboards as long as it is not applied directly at close range. We recommend putting away paper documents, along with anything else you don’t want sprayed before the scheduled service.




Is Your Sanitizer Safe?


Our sanitizer is food safe and can be applied to all surfaces, even food preparation areas. For this reason we highly recommend our service to food service establishments like restaurants and food courts, as well as gyms, daycares, offices, schools, and many other types of facilities where pathogens are common. We ask that you wait a minimum of two hours after a space has finished receiving treatment before entering the area. However, once the application process is complete and dry, the space is safe for both people and animals. Masks and PPE are not required.




Where Can Your Sanitizer Be Used?


The no-rinse formula can be used on washable, hard, nonporous surfaces like dishes, glassware, eating utensils, kitchen equipment, counters, tables and chairs. The product is also suitable for any USDA-inspected food processing facilities or for federally inspected meat and poultry facilities.




Who Manufactures Your Sanitizer?


Our sanitizer is from Ecolab, the global leader in commercial cleaning and sanitation.




Does Your Sanitizer Have Any Odor?


No, our sanitizer is an odorless sanitizer with a clear, light pink color. This sanitizer offers a sanitizing solution for restaurants, institutional kitchens, schools, daycare centers, churches, salons and homes.




How Should My Businesses Prepare For Electrostatic Disinfection?


Businesses receiving electrostatic disinfection services can prepare their space for cleaning by storing items that do not need to be sprayed, such as loose papers and articles of clothing. Having these items out in an area can impede technicians ability to apply cleaning solutions quickly and easily, just as with other cleaning services.

  • Remove paperwork and folders, clothing, garbage, clutter and any other items from surfaces
  • Store all food and open containers in a safe space away from surfaces
  • Ensure floors are free of unnecessary items
  • Take down all decorations so that walls and surfaces may be easily cleaned




How Quickly Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?


Electrostatic disinfectants begin to work immediately when sprayed and the surfaces should remain wet with applied solutions for at least two minutes to allow the appropriate dwell time. Typically, chemicals are applied while spaces are vacant. We ask that occupants of the space wait a minimum of two hours after application before reentering the space.




Does Coastal Sanitizers Deep Clean?


Coastal Sanitizers only applies the sanitizing treatment. We do offer a wide range of cleaning service, including deep cleaning, through our sister company, Specialty Cleaning Company. If you are interested, please visit SCC from the main menu.
