Clorox Total 360 System

The Clorox Total 360 System pairs an electrostatic sprayer with disinfectants and sanitizers. Electrostatic technology enables coverage in hard-to-reach places like the side, underside and backside of surfaces.

Uses an air compressor for quiet, powerful liquid flow. An electrode atomizes the cleaning solution so that it is attracted to the surface and provides a uniform coating.

Up to 4 times faster than other cleaning solutions with coverage up to 18,000 square feet per hour. Uses up to 65% less solution, reducing product costs over time.
