Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does BYO Safe Environment's Electrostatic Sprayers work?
A: By Induction charging.BYO Safe Environment's latest generation sprayer produces small electrically charged droplets that literally seek out and "wrap around" germ infested areas. They penetrate deep into the designated target killing the harshest pahtogens in hard hard to reach areas for complete protection.
Q: Why is Electrostatic spraying superior to Trigger or Pump Spraying?
A: Electrostatic droplets tend to repel and not overlap one another, providing more uniform dispersion of the solution resulting in significantly less product usage as compared to traditional housekeeping methods while still providing superior surface coverage. Being able to reach and deposit on 100% of the surface area, allows for a much more thorough disinfection treatment to prevent the threat of cross contamination.

Q: Why is the BYO Safe Environment Process Superior to existing disinfectant protocols?
A: The BYO Safe Environment Process provides a state of the art disinfection service that is second to none and improves both surface and overall air quality by eliminating the spread of invisible yet health-threatening germs, viruses, molds, and mildew. The science behind electrostatic coverage - allows the disinfectant to actually seek out surface areas, penetrating into cracks and crevices where normal manual housekeeping efforts miss. BYO Safe Environment reduces your overall environmental footprint while getting to those often missed areas that will result in cross contamination.
Q: How can adding the BYO Safe Environment process to your existing cleaning protocols increase your bottom line?
A: Although there are many different ways to generate cost savings through cleaning activities, the BYO Safe Environment process and improved environmental health can have a direct impact on the following categories:
- Reducing absenteeism
- Improved productivity
- Increased customer satisfaction
- Asset preservation
- Energy & labor savings
- Reducing more costly hospital associated infections (HAI's)
Due to the high efficiency of the Electrostatic application - less product is used across a broader area in less time. This saves on chemical outlay as well as all logistics surrounding it such as shipping, receiving, storage, and shrinkage. The BYO Safe Environment product line was created to be safer for both staff and their customer hence, when used properly, can also increase labor productivity and overall cleanliness since they are not subjected to harsh or toxic chemicals on a daily basis.
Q: Why do I need BYO Safe Environment?
A: Because it lessens the need for specialized personnel manually performing disinfection duties after their normal cleaning service - the sprayer effectively does the work of several employees, reaches more area and does not risk the threat of cross contamination. Kimberly Clark conducted a study showing that poor cleaning manifests itself in numerous corrective service requests. Cleaning service failures impose costs on both the customer and service provider. Studies show that reducing the number of surfaces contaminated with viruses can reduce absenteeism by as much as 45%.
Q: What are the advantages of using Electrostatic sprayers to disperse BYO Safe Environment's approved disinfectants?
A: The quickest way to disinfect a hospital room, airport, school or office is by using an electrostatic sprayer than can deliver 100% coverage of all surface area (including sensitive equipment surfaces often untouched by traditional methods and hidden surfaces) to treat objects, walls, floors and ceilings in a matter of just a few minutes. Electrostatic sprayers can dramatically cut the time it takes to truly disinfect large areas. BYO Safe Environment products are some of the few disinfectants that can be dispersed in this manner because they are non-corrosive to treated surfaces and objects.
Q: What kind of businesses can benefit from the BYO Safe Environment process?
A: At one end of the spectrum are commercial facilities such as office buildings, high-rise office complexes, distribution facilities, food processing plants, hospitals, nursing homes, airport and mass transit terminals, government offices, and industrial plants. In addition to the contracted service sector, many universities, K-12 schools, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, and other industries can cost effectively incorporate the BYO Safe Environment process into their existing protocols to achieve significant overall results.
Q: How dirty is your office environment?
A: Research teams found that the percentage of office surfaces tested that were found to have high levels of contamination (an ATP count of 300 or higher), included:
- 75% of break room sink faucet handles
- 48% of microwave door handles
- 27% of keyboards
- 26% of refrigerator door handles
- 23% of water fountain buttons
- 21% of vending machine buttons
Electrostatic application of a disinfectant is really the only way to "wrap around" and protect these surface areas without creating cross contamination.
Q: The cost of illness related to absenteeism?
A: Absenteeism is a substantial cost to businesses that can be reduced through proper cleaning practices. A survey conducted by Mercer/Marsh stated that: the disruption in the labor supply affects productivity, even with replacement staff. This leads to lost sales, late delivery of goods/services, customer dissatisfaction and loss of revenue. Respondents to the survey reported that unplanned absences cause a 54% decrease in productivity/output and a 39% drop in sales/customer service. BYO Safe Environment's electrostatic process can improve overall air and surface quality.
Q: How does BYO Safe Environment support sustainability?
A: With the increased focus on sustainability and public health protection, progressive firms are adopting a more holistic approach to cleaning. They have learned that cleaning impacts a wide array of business functions and that a relatively small incremental investment in electrostatic technology can produce outsized gains for the organization.
Q: How does the BYO Safe Environment process affect labor costs?
A: The extraordinary bonding and complete coverage of product when applied electrostatically - allows operators to completely disinfect and sanitize much greater areas in less time at far less cost. In turn, saving you money and keeping your employees and customers healthier all while protecting your environment.
