COVID-19: United Employs Clorox Electrostatic Sprayers
As part of its commitment to enhancing safety for travelers both onboard and at the airport, United Airlines is now using the Clorox Total 360 System to disinfect terminals at 35 of the airline's busiest airports.
This electrostatic spraying system is similar to the electrostatic spraying technology used onboard aircraft and will be used to spray surfaces in ticketing lobbies, terminals, gate rooms, employee spaces, and United Club locations.
The disinfecting solution is EPA-approved to kill SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Through its United CleanPlus program, United has been working closely with Clorox and the Cleveland Clinic since early May to consult on all its cleaning and disinfection protocols.
The airline currently uses Clorox Disinfection Wipes on all mainline aircraft and in United Club locations.
The Clorox Total 360 System charges and atomizes the Clorox disinfecting solutions to deliver a powerful flow of charged particles that attract to surfaces with a force stronger than gravity.
This allows the product to reach and uniformly coat germ-prone surfaces, including areas that conventional trigger sprays may easily miss.
United expects all 35 airports will be using the systems every night beginning in early December and plans to expand to additional airports in early 2021.
