  • Mask should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face.

SST Exterior Cleaning

Disinfected daily with an Electrostatic Sprayer

Electrostatic spraying is a revolutionary technology for disinfection applications. During the spraying process, the electrostatically charged droplets create an electric field that allows the droplets to adhere to the surface of any object within a certain distance by electrostatic force.  Its power is so great that the droplets will reverse to cover the back of the target, even on hidden, difficult-to-reach surfaces, which are usually ignored by traditional devices.
