Electrostatic Solutions for Airline Cleaning

Rising to the Challenge with Electrostatic Sprayers

Current Harvard University guidelines for cleaning commercial aircraft include disinfection before every flight as well as a daily deep cleaning. The quick turnaround time of flights as well as the varied types of surfaces in aircraft present a particular challenge to airline cleaning crews. As a result, many airlines have turned to electrostatic sprayers for the application of disinfectants. Electrostatic sprayers work by applying a positive charge to the particles of approved disinfectant solutions. This positive charge causes the particles to cling to negatively charged surfaces, efficiently handling a large area of various hard non-porous surface types. Tests run by the EPA showed good spray deposition and “wrap-around” effect – that is, good coverage ­– when using approved disinfectants according to manufacturer’s directions. Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is one such approved disinfectant.

Bioesque Botanical Disinfectant Solution

Our Botanical Disinfectant Solution is a ready-to-use all-purpose solution capable of cleaning, sanitizing, disinfecting, and deodorizing in one step. In addition to being approved for electrostatic sprayers, the Botanical Disinfectant Solution is on the EPA’s List N. The EPA expects all products on this list to kill all strains and variants of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) when used according to the label directions. Our solution actually features a 55-second kill-time against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). It also kills 99.9% of bacteria in two minutes, 99.9% of mold and fungi in three minutes, and 99.9% of viruses in four minutes.

A Safer Way to Clean

Cleaning chemicals like bleach, chlorine, and ammonia are very effective, but come with an added cost: they’re harsh, toxic, and terrible for the environment. Bioesque Solutions was founded on the principle that there must be a safer way to clean without sacrificing the power of these chemicals. With a formula that is free of bleach and other harsh chemicals, Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is a great choice for hazard-conscious or environmentally sensitive settings. Powered by Thymox technology, it utilizes Thymol, a cutting-edge antimicrobial agent present as a component of Thyme Oil, to quickly power through grime and destroy the germs that it encounters.

Global Standards from the International Air Transport Association

The International Air Transport Association, or IATA, is a trade association that sets technical standards, including cleaning guidelines, for airlines. These cleaning guidelines include “informed selection and the correct use of chemical products” which is “vital in ensuring effective cleaning and disinfection of an aircraft without damaging the aircraft interior, systems, and equipment while minimizing the likelihood of the transmission of COVID-19 or any other communicable diseases.” The IATA’s number one priority is safety, and these guidelines ensure the safety of passengers, crew, and other employees.

The EPA List N

The IATA recommends that airlines refer to local authorities for recommendations of products effective against COVID-19 and other contagious pathogens. The EPA maintains List N, a group of products expected to kill all strains and variants of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) when used according to the label directions. Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is included on this list. The IATA also advocates referring to the aircraft manufacturers’ guidelines for the most recent recommendations.

SAE International

The IATA also states that “cleaning and disinfection products should comply with and be certified or tested according to OEM standards and/or industry test standards, such as SAE International standards.” Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution has AMS 1452C & BSS7434 approved testing, in accordance with SAE International standards.

A 55-Second Kill-Time

Finally, the IATA directs airlines to “refer to the cleaning and disinfection product manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that the proper application, frequency, quantity, ventilation and personal protection equipment is used.” Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution includes a 55-second dwell time for effective use against coronavirus. Furthermore, it is a ready-to-use all-purpose formula safe for everyday use without the need of personal protective equipment.

Harvard-Recommended Cleaning Measures for Airlines

Airlines have always presented a special challenge when it comes to ensuring a clean environment. Passengers are grouped together in close quarters with plenty of high-contact areas and fast turnarounds. Fortunately, a study by Harvard University found that a comprehensive, multi-tiered strategy can effectively reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 during air travel. This layered strategy consists of federal masking guidelines as well as enhanced cleaning and disinfecting measures. These Harvard-recommended cleaning measures include:

HEPA Filters

High-efficiency particulate air, or HEPA, filters in their ventilation systems. Columbia University professor Faye McNeill explains here that these filters can actually catch the particles that cause coronavirus. Furthermore, these filters refresh cabin air every two to four minutes, offsetting the close quarters that travelers endure during their flights.

Masking Guidelines

Mandatory face coverings for all travelers and staff. Harvard found this to be the number one deterrent for the spread of coronavirus during airline flights.

EPA-Approved Disinfection

Disinfection of all high-touch surfaces with an EPA-approved product before every flight along with a daily deep clean. Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is on the EPA’s List N, and features a 55-second kill-time against SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19).

Electrostatic sprayers can be especially effective in the application of disinfectants. These sprayers apply a positive charge to approved disinfectant solutions resulting in particles that are attracted to negatively charged surfaces, allowing them to cover a large area and a variety of hard non-porous surfaces. Bioesque’s Botanical Disinfectant Solution is one such approved disinfectant.

A Safer Way to Clean

Cleaning chemicals like chlorine, bleach, and ammonia are harsh and toxic. Bioesque Solution was founded on the principle that there must be a safer way to clean without sacrificing the power found in these chemicals. Powered by Thymox®, every Bioesque® Solutions product is designed to work together harmoniously like in nature, to bring the future of disinfecting and cleaning to our customers today.
