MELBOURNE, Fla. (July 23, 2020) – Advanced technology from a brand-new Clorox Total 360 System Electrostatic Sprayer is being put to work at the Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB). This new technology will be used along with enhanced cleaning procedures by MLB custodial staff to provide an even safer environment for customers using the airport’s passenger terminal. The new piece of equipment made by Clorox uses an innovative electrostatic spray technology that is being used to disinfect and sanitize furnishings and surfaces throughout the airport.
MLB’s newest cleaning device kills 99.9% of bacteria in just 5 seconds and has the capability to cover up to 18,000 square feet in one hour, which is four times faster than conventional trigger spraying tools and practices. It also uses 65 percent less product than normal cleaning procedures and reaches areas that are normally missed including surfaces not in line of site as well as sides, undersides and backsides.
“The airport’s latest equipment investment is to ensure the safety and health of all our passengers, customers, employees and visitors at the airport terminal,” said Cliff Graham, C.M., director of operations and maintenance at MLB. “We have trained our team to use the equipment to its fullest potential and continue our focus of maintaining a safe environment for the traveling public.”
The Clorox Total 360 machine is the latest of MLB’s improvements that have been implemented to ensure the health and safety along every step of a traveler’s journey through MLB. A complete guide to the airport enhancements and tips for traveling can be found at www.FlyMLBsafely.com.

Flight schedules have seen recent increases with Delta’s nonstop service to Atlanta (ATL) now operating twice a day every day, and American’s nonstop service to Charlotte (CLT) operating three times a day Thursday through Monday and once a day on Tuesday and Wednesday. Schedules show American flying to CLT three times a day every day of the week beginning September 9.
