Restaurants, laboratory facilities, warehouses, hair and nail salons, gyms, dance and yoga studios — almost every business will benefit from using a disinfectant sprayer. This simple addition to your cleaning supplies is a game changer, cutting down on the time it takes to disinfect any area and increasing the level of cleanliness on all surfaces.
Disinfectant sprayers are also easy to use. No special skills or training are required.
What Is a Disinfectant Sprayer?
A disinfectant sprayer is a powerful tool that usually attaches to a tube connected to a bottle of cleaner. Because the sprayer is adjustable, pulling the “trigger” on the sprayer releases a spurt of cleaner onto the surface, usually in a strong, steady stream or in a wider spritzing spray.
The device delivers a large amount of cleaning product to a broad surface. Depending on the size of the area, spraying can be done in just a few minutes.
What Are the Benefits of Using a Disinfectant Sprayer?
A disinfectant sprayer delivers a wide-ranging arc of spray that is broad enough to cover a large surface area and dense enough to be effective. You won’t question whether you used enough spray to render the area disinfected and bacteria-free.
Additionally, the sprayer is designed to deliver enough spray to a surface that no wiping is required to spread the spray over the entire area. Simply let it air dry and know that the work is done.
You don’t have to spray cleaner over a surface multiple times, wipe that surface with a cleaning rag (and potentially spread bacteria and viruses in the process) and hope that everything is clean. A disinfectant sprayer cuts the disinfecting act down to about a minute and leaves nothing to chance. Disinfecting your floors becomes a simple task.
In short, disinfectant sprayers save time and money. They increase the sanitation of the area they are used to clean.
What Should Be Considered When Purchasing a Disinfectant Sprayer?
Although it is not necessary to take extensive training to manage the equipment, disinfectant sprayers are powerful tools, so it’s a good idea to watch a few videos to make sure you use it properly.
To avoid clogging the tube or sprayer, only use the device with certain cleaners. Additionally, you may need to clean it from time to time if it becomes blocked or if you only use it periodically.
It is important to consider that the disinfectant sprayer has the capability to distribute a significant amount of whatever cleaner is in the container it’s attached to. If you use a chemical disinfectant (as may be required for full sanitation, especially in certain industries), this can mean significant exposure to those chemicals and their fumes for employees operating the sprayer.
For this reason, it’s a good idea to have disposable gloves and masks on hand to protect employees. It’s also recommended to avoid using the disinfectant sprayer until the space is clear of employees and customers, so there is minimal exposure to any fumes.
When Should You Invest in a Disinfectant Sprayer?
A disinfectant sprayer may be appropriate for a business if:
Health standards in the industry require a high level of sanitation, such as in hospital and clinical settings, salons and other personal care spaces.
It is in an area where cases of viral or bacterial illnesses are high.
It includes a bathroom.
Time is of the essence when it comes to sanitizing stations between clients or closing up a large space where a great deal of cleaning needs to be done.
Grade A is the goal for cleanliness standards and certifications.
