The pandemic has devastated humanity, forcing us to carry out a radical change in our way of life that has been going on since the beginning of last year, this includes confinement, safe distance, etc. Since then, there are multiple biosecurity measures against COVID-19, designed to combat the disease. But what happens when poor surface disinfection is done in these times?
The information that we have regarding this enigmatic disease is scattered and inconclusive. Even so, the importance of good hygiene and proper disinfection in any situation or time should never be overlooked.
In this way, guaranteeing safe spaces and disinfection of surfaces with a reliable procedure is always highly recommended, such as the method we offer at TecnoStatic.

Controversy over security measures against COVID. What does the scientific community say?
A pandemic of this style has never been experienced in current times, where social networks practically own the media. Disinformation and fake news in general have flooded the networks themselves with false testimonies about this situation.
Although the risks are high, the truth is that it is better to have your own and responsible criteria. Do not panic and despair, remain calm and confirm the veracity of the news are the recommendations from the authorities and experts.
Poor disinfection of surfaces
Viruses survive inside a host, so their life outside or on the surface of objects is not very long. Even so, currently the habit of keeping the surfaces of any public space disinfected has been promoted as a precaution at all times.
An electrostatic spraying equipment is the ideal system to achieve complete disinfection effectiveness, faster and more efficient than other types of traditional equipment.
Why put so much emphasis on the consequences of poor surface disinfection?
Despite the fact that the main route of transmission is from one person to another, it is vital to preserve pathogen-free spaces. The World Health Organization has established different time limits in which the virus remains alive.
That said, for example, there is news that confirms that on cardboard surfaces, the virus survives less than 24 hours. Even so, in steel and plastic, it is capable of living up to more than 48 hours or 72 on average maximum. Therefore, a bad disinfection of surfaces, especially in plastic and steel can predispose to a future contagion.
With this information, some poorly disinfected surface that belongs to a crowded space is potentially capable of infecting within these periods of time. Therefore, it will help diseases caused by viruses and bacteria continue to expand exponentially.
On the other hand, one of the dangers of poor surface disinfection in times of COVID is contagion by dragging. That is, even if close contact with other people is completely avoided, when touching an infected surface, all previous precautions are useless.
At TecnoStatic we are experts in electrostatic spraying and we will guarantee you 100% complete and safe disinfection for all your surfaces.
