Reliable. Equipped. Experienced. Trusted.
The cleanliness of your office or facility is the key to keeping your staff and guests/patrons safe. It is imperative that you have a professional cleaning firm like Emerald City Cleaning servicing your facility, true sanitization of your area requires using the right tools and equipment along with proper training chemical application. At Emerald City Cleaning, we have always been on the forefront of this technology and have the chemicals and instruments to make any facility safe to reopen.
Electrostatic Spray Technology
The most advanced application for disinfecting of all surfaces!
Our professional electrostatic backpack sprayers is a tool that applies disinfectants and sanitizer to surfaces allowing for 360-degree complete coverage, enabling us to also cover up to 20,000 square feet in just one tank of sterilizer. Our handheld sprayers are used in conjunction with the backpack units, allows us to maneuver in tight spaces, and still provide the same 360-degree complete coverage.
The Benefits of Electrostatic Sprayers
The electrostatic disinfection process is an innovative process that saves energy, time, and labor costs as it provides a more efficient way of applying sterilizer when compared to the traditional cleaning techniques.
When using an electrostatic sprayer the disinfectant is atomized then it passes through an electrostatic induction nozzle, further charging those molecules using a bipolar power supply before the disinfectant exits towards the target areas & surfaces. The bipolar charging of the molecules causes the electrical charges to be re-distributed, causing the disinfectant to have extra of either a positive or the negative charge so they then seek the opposite charge when sprayed.
The electrostatically charged droplets are then highly attracted to grounded areas and surfaces allowing it to cover all sides, edges, backsides of surfaces, and hard to reach spaces. This wraparound effect of the electrostatic sprayer provides consistent coverage of the disinfecting solution throughout all areas & surfaces, which in return also reduces the overuse of sanitizer.
We currently use two different sterilizers with our electrostatic technology: Shield disinfectant & FDA disinfectant.

Food Safe Disinfectant
Not all facilities or areas can use our Shield Disinfectant. If you require disinfection in a restaurant, kitchen, cafeteria, grocery store, or food manufacturing plant we have an EPA and FDA approved disinfectant that we can use safely at your facility.
We use the same electrostatic sprayers to apply this disinfectant, and it has the same killing power as our Shield Disinfectant, it just does not continue to work after it has been applied.
Through our partners in Seattle and CA, we have been chosen to be the FIRST CLEANING FIRM IN US to use a revolutionary EPA Approved antimicrobial surface treatment against COVID-19*. This Ammonia-QUAT based disinfectant was independently lab tested by our certified lab partner to kill the Covid-19 virus. This antimicrobial treatment has been used for many years in the USA with the current EPA label, the manufacturer's current EPA label does not make any claims to kill the COVID-19 virus, so our lab results are outside their label and should not be considered an EPA approved solution until the manufacture completes the expedited approval process.
The way our Shield Disinfectant works is after application by our electrostatic sprayers, the antimicrobial treatment forms a molecular thin barrier on the treated surfaces. This barrier then continues to kill on contact bacteria, fungi, pathogens, and viruses including COVID-19*. This barrier will last on the surface for up to 30 days in the lab and 7+ days in recent real-world testing by our staff/lab. In order to ensure your facility has full effectiveness, we can perform lab testing that proves the surfaces are still protected and adjust the frequency of the subsequent applications of the treatment accordingly.
Some areas will require reapplication more often than others (doorknobs, switches, high touch, and high traffic areas to name a few), but we have testing results showing it will last in these areas for over a week.
Stay one step ahead, we will need to live with this virus for perhaps years, start being proactive instead of reactive!
*Tested by Emerald Cleaning LLC's lab partner to be effective on Covid-19. Lab results are being submitted to EPA for expedited COVID effectiveness approval. Our results are not included in the current EPA label, and our claims are not yet supported by the manufacturer. Use of this formula against the COVID-19 virus is based on our lab results and not claimed by the manufacturer. To learn more about Ammonia-Quat disinfectants against COVID-19 click here.
Frequently asked questions
What are disinfecting services?
Does a suspected/confirmed coronavirus exposure in a building require HAZMAT cleaning?
Why should soiled areas be cleaned prior to disinfecting?
How much do commercial disinfecting services cost?
When should you disinfect your business?
What should businesses do to prepare to re-open after coronavirus?
How do you verify if the right disinfectants are being used to combat coronavirus COVID-19?
The EPA has released List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2. This is a list of primary EPA chemical registrations that have been deemed effective against “Emerging Pathogens”, or those viruses more hard-to-kill or similar to coronavirus COVID-19. You can verify the chemicals used in your facility are listed in two ways: by either finding the EPA’s Emerging Pathogen disclosure/badge on the label or by comparing the first two sections of the EPA Registration number and comparing it with the chemicals on List N. More information can be found on the EPA’s FAQ Page
What is the difference between sanitation, disinfection, and sterilization?
Sanitation is another word for cleaning. Both words have the same meaning; removing visible contamination and debris and dramatically lowering the number of germs on the surface.
How is the shield antimicrobial surface treatment different from traditional disinfectant
Where can you apply the Shield Disinfectant?
Shield Disinfectant is a antimicrobial surface treatement that can be applied to surfaces like as handles, door knobs, flooring, cabinets and other surfaces like; showers, countertops, lighting and plumbing fixtures, flooring, carpets, equipment, walls, and more.
How does the Shield Disinfectant work?
How is Shield Disinfectant different from other antimicrobial chemicals?
Traditional antimicrobial chemicals are designed to act quickly and loose effectiveness just as fast. Commercial antimicrobial treatments and chemistries do a decent job at killing these fungi, bacteria, and some microorganisms, but they just loose effectiveness to quickly.
