The Clorox Cleaning system Sidney CSD adds electrostatic system to help with cleaning
The Sidney Central School District has recently started using the Clorox Total 360 system, which helps add an extra layer of protection against germs.

The system utilizes electrostatic technology, along with disinfecting and sanitizing solutions. The system was first put in place by the district to help reduce common illnesses, such as cold, flu, and fast-spreading norovirus.
