Heritage Electrostatic Disinfection use the modern and proven highly effective disinfectant Crebisol x10 which has a 99.999% kill rate for Corona viruses and many bacterial pathogens - Certification of this is freely available. Electrostatic Disinfection can be highly effective when applied to hard surfaces such as plastic based products, stainless steel, painted steel, glass, nylon and treated timber. Therefore all areas such as hallways, waiting rooms, offices, restaurants/ cafes, schools, pubs, care homes, shops, gyms, hair dressers, salons, houses, hotels and even open spaces can benefit from this disinfection process.

Crebisol x10 is safe to use, when applied following required guidelines and has passed the stringent requirements to be used on aircraft interiors, significantly on areas that come into contact with people and food. In approving the use of Crebisol x10 the relevant testing aviation authorities require any chemical used in or around aircraft frames to be assessed on its corrosive effect and its impact on painted and unpainted surfaces, to which Crebisol x10 has been deemed to satisfy.

Heritage Electrostatic Disinfection adhere to the requirements and recommendation of Crebisol and the manufacturer the electrostatic sprayers. As such we have designated a few environments for which we do not provide treatment services which include areas containing high quantities of paper, exposed and unprotected food stuffs, exposed high voltage electrical circuitry and open fish tanks. We also do not provide treatment services where environments are occupied or intend to be reoccupied within 30 minutes of the application of our treatment, which is in line with our own risk assessment and method statements.

Where Can It Be Used?

Our treatments are highly effective when applied to hard surfaces such as, but not limited to, plastic based products, stainless steel, painted steel, and glass as well as nylon and treated timber. Therefore, areas such as hallways, waiting rooms, offices, restaurants/ cafes, schools, pubs, care homes , shops, gyms, hair dressers, salons, houses, hotels and any open spaces can benefit from this disinfection process.

In addition to these environments it has also passed the stringent requirements to be used on aircraft interiors significantly on areas that come into contact with food as well as lavatories, sinks and surrounding hard surfaces. These also require any chemical to be assessed on its corrosive effect and its impact on painted and unpainted surfaces to which Crebisol has been deemed to conform.

Heritage Electrostatic Disinfection adhere to the Crebisol and the manufacturer of our electrostatic sprayers recommendations and requirements which means we have a few circumstances that we do not provide treatment services. These include sections containing high quantities of paper, unprotected food stuffs, exposed electric circuitry and open fish tanks.

Heritage Electrostatic Disinfection do not provide treatment services where environments are occupied or intend to be reoccupied within 30 minutes of application, which is in line with our own risk assessment and method statements.

Equipment

Heritage ED has chosen to use the Victory VP300ES Sprayer. This machine is powered by a 16v rechargeable battery which will pump the treatment solution through a nozzle that produces a fine mist consisting of particles of 3 various sizes: 100, 80 and 40 microns. In most circumstances we will be using the smallest particle size 40 microns to maximise efficiency.

Operatives

Our operatives apply treatments in strict adherence to all relevant risk assessments and method statements including those from COSHH, Crebisol, Victory and Heritage Electrostatic Disinfection. All treatments are undertaken by operatives in full PPE, including protective overalls, goggles, gloves, shoe covers and masks. The current Government guidelines on limiting the spread of COVID 19 will always be strictly followed. All preparation of disinfectants and subsequent cleaning will be undertaken off site.

Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss sending you a copy of our risk assessments and method statements.

Costs

In order to provide a rough cost assessment there maybe a few factors that will impact on a quotation. These may include frequency, locality and size of premises. However, to provide an example, we charge a minimum of £98 to disinfect a vacant 3 bedroom house averaging 1 hour from start to completion of treatment. Such a premises would be available for immediate reoccupation after completion of the treatment period.

These costs cover operative travel, preparation, disinfectant and purified water, PPE, drying and post treatment assessment.

We have found this is a practical basis for assessing cost and time, although your personal requirements may have a bearing on these factors. We are always happy to discuss any details to your circumstances at a time that suits you.

The Process

What They Say

FAQ

Q1.
Is the chemical dangerous?

The COSHH (Control Of Substances Hazardous for health ) assessment report on Crebisol x10 advises that the operatives wear protective clothing goggles and gloves but not masks. The agent is a skin and soft tissue irritant in its neat form. Our operatives wear clothing recommended by the COSHH Assessment plus masks to ensure the operatives don’t re-contaminate the areas treated.

Q2.
Is it safe for all materials?

Crebisol x10 is certified to be used by airlines. These are very stringent tests. The agent doesn’t carry any bleach and is not corrosive. Ref to Crebisol testing data. The agent will leave a fine "bio viral" film that remains active for 72hrs. The only recommendation we would make in line with Crebisol is that paper and books will not be directly treated. Libraries and ICU departments in  hospitals are among the few environments where electrostatic misting is not recommend. If clothes or personal effects are considered valuable again it maybe prudent to take precautions to store these away before treatments. In general, the agent is considered safe to use, non-staining nor bleaching.

Q3.
Is electrostatic disinfection safe to use around computers & electrical components as well as on keyboards & mouses?

The 40 micrometer mist (agent and purified water) is as fine as the width of a human hair and the machine supplier and chemical manufacturer state that if the mist is not directly applied to open electrical components it is safe to use. Our operatives do not consider cooling vents and openings to electrical elements as being areas to treat in which case the mist will not be applied directly into any such sensitive parts. Keyboard, mouse and monitor faces are considered safe to apply treatment. We require that electric equipment is turned off and that the 30 minute drying time is allowed to pass to allow the agent to achieve its maximum kill rate and for surfaces to dry. If you remain concerned we recommend that you cover or remove items you do not want treating.

Q4.
Does the treatment remain effective beyond application?

The agent leaves a bio-viral film that remains active for 72hrs, after that surfaces can only be considered fully disinfected until exposed to an active contaminant.

The electrostatic treatment is designed and intended to give you a baseline assurance that the area treated is disinfected at that time.

Q5.
How long does the treatment take?

The actual treatment process is fairly straightforward and quite quick, preparation prior to attendance and before treatment may be more involved but the time impact on the area being treated is confined largely by allowing a suitable drying time of 30 minutes.

Q6.
Can the treatment be undertaken when people are around?

We do not treat areas that are occupied, this is part of our terms and conditions in line with our method statements. We undertake treatments within specified areas when empty and recommend reoccupation only after the area is dried fully, which is around 30 minutes.

Q7.
Is the treatment safe around food, children & animals?

Crebisol states that it is bio-degradable and perfectly safe to apply to surfaces where children play and where animals live – the only exception being open fish tanks. We don’t apply treatments to animals at all. Surfaces are safe to eat off and children’s toys are safe to play with after the treatment has dried.

Fruit and vegetables as well as soft and absorbent food such as bread and should all be stored away prior to treatment. Food in plastic wrappings, tins or cardboard containers could benefit from being treated to ensure no continuing contamination from external sources.

Q8.
Should I be concerned about the effects of the agent on people with asthma or other underlying health issues?

There is no evidence that Crebisol x10 should negatively impact people with underlying medical conditions. We do not treat areas occupied by people and given the drying time of 30 minutes is part of the treatment process, we believe that we will have processes in place to limit risk. If a client has any particular concerns we will take every step to discuss and accommodate these before we undertake a treatment.

Q9.
Can our service be provided to outside areas?

Yes, our treatments can be used on external areas such as smoking areas, patios, balconies, tables/ benches and storage areas.

Q10.
Do you work outside normal working hours?

We intend to provide services to meet your needs.

Q11.
Can you design your service to meet our needs?

Some clients may require regular preventative treatments, and some may require one off-treatments, such as in the event of an emergency if they are concerned about contamination in the work place. At times like these we see clients needing a rapid and highly effective sanitization following their normal cleaning regime. We can discuss any particular level of service you require.

Q12.
Do you cover homes?

Yes, we regularly treat properties between occupation and have found this has been a significant point of concern by customers moving into new homes when they are simply unsure who has been in and out of the property before they move in. We have found providing a clear baseline of disinfection just before occupation to be highly valued by our customers who want that peace of mind knowing their new home is as sterile as it possibly could be.

Q13.
Do you provide cleaning services as well?

No, we are not a cleaning company. We provide non-invasive, non-touch electrostatic decontamination services. Normal cleaning practices remain vital to remove surface dirt, dust and rubbish.

Q14.
Do you move items or cover equipment?

No. Our operatives are instructed to not intentionally touch anything other than door handles to gain entry and exit. If there are items you want removing, moving or protecting this must be undertaken by clients before treatment commences.

Q15.
Do you certify your work?

There is no relevant industry certification for these types of work. However, we can provide an e-mail detailing areas treated and the agent and equipment used.

Q16.
Do you have professional indemnity insurance & certification?

Yes - Heritage Electrostatic Disinfection is a trading name for Michael Heritage Property Consultancy Ltd. We carry £5 million Public Liability insurance which is specifically detailed on insurance documentation for ‘Electrostatic Disinfection Cleaning’.

Electrostatic disinfection is not regulated or certified. We follow the COSHH guidance on the use of Crebisol x10 and we have our own RAMS (Risk Assessments and Method Statements). We also abide by government legislation in limiting the spread of Covid 19.

Q17.
Is Crebisol dangerous to the environment?

Crebisol state Crebisol x10 is bio-degradable and is not identified as a PTB (Persistent Bio-accumalative and Toxic) product and does not present a hazard.
