How does it work?
It’s estimated that conventional cleaning methods only eliminate 50% of total germs. That’s why hospitals have been using UV disinfection technology for decades. The germicidal capability of UVC light is over 99.9% effective at eliminating pathogens.
What does UV-C Kill?
UV-C light is able to kill 99.9% of many different things. Some of the most common are C-Diff, Influenza, Bacteriopfage – E.Coli, MRSA Pathogens, Infectious Hepatitus, Mold, Algae, Roundworms, Anthrax Spores, Clostridium Tetani, Ebertelia Typhosa, Escherichia Coli, Leptospiracanicola – infectious jaundice, salmonella enteritidis, Salmonella typhosa -typhoid fever, and more..
Does UV-C Kill the Corona Virus?
The Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19 is a new virus. Since we have not seen any research with Ultraviolet light and the Coronavirus, we cannot say. However, it has been effective in killing up to 99.9% of influenza, MRSA and E. Coli. We will try to update our FAQ as soon as we get that information.
How Does UV-C “Kill” Microorganisms?
When a UV-C lamp is turned on, it produces three different types of energy: UVC energy, light, and infrared energy (heat). UVC energy is not visible to the naked eye, even though it comprises up to 90% of UV-C light. 3-4% of UV-C light is visible light, which is a shade of blue, and the remaining energy is heat. You can typically tell how much general energy your UV-C light or lamp is by how bright the blue light shines, although the presence of blue UV light does not necessarily indicate that the UVC energy is present since the light is created by gas inside the lamp, not specifically the UVC energy.
Is UV-C Safe?
UV emits harmful UV rays during operation only. All humans, pets and plants are removed from the room during use. We use a technology that allows us to remotely activate our equipment when it is disinfecting a whole room and we wear protective eyewear and clothing when using any handheld devices. Once the bulb is turned off, there is no lingering UV light or effect.
How long will it take to UV-C Sanitize my home or business?
It all depends on what you want to sanitize. Most people will want to kill up to 99.9% of viruses and bacteria which takes about 15 minutes in a medium sized room. Bigger rooms will require more machines and time.
Where does UV-C work?
UV-C light works on surfaces that its light touches.
