Ultraviolet Light (UV-C) | Highly Effective Way to Kill Germs & Viruses
“Ultraviolet (UV) Light has been a known to be effective at destroying germs, viruses and other the DNA of other harmful contaminants for more than 100 years. In 1878, Arthur Downes and
Thomas P. Blunt published a paper describing the sterilization of bacteria exposed to short wavelength light (UV). In 1903, the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to Niels Finsen for his use of UV against lupus vulgaris, and tuberculosis of the skin.”
In the fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, an old weapon has re-emerged. Ultraviolet light (UV) possesses just the right amount of energy to break organic molecular bonds. As micro-organisms pass by the UV rays emitted from an ultraviolet lamp, the DNA bonds are broken which results in enough cellular damage to inhibit micro-organisms from harming people. UV light is able to destroy the DNA of germs, viruses, bacteria, fungi, molds and many other harmful pollutants. There are different wavelengths of UV light. The shortest wavelength is UV-C which is considered “germicidal UV”.
UV light is generally divided into three classes, based on the wavelength of the light. All of them are invisible to the human eye. The longest wavelengths are UVA (315–400 nm) and UVB (280–315 nm), which are found in ordinary sunlight. These are the rays that can cause sunburn if one stays outside too long without protection. UVA and UVB light rays have limited germ-killing ability because viruses and bacteria have had millions of years to adapt to them.
But UVC light (200–280 nm) is completely absorbed by our atmosphere and never reaches the surface of the earth. Therefore, UVC light is just as novel to SARS-CoV2 as the virus is to humans. According to the International Ultraviolet Association, it is generally accepted that a dose of 40 mJ·cm−2 of 254 nm light will kill at least 99.99% of “any pathogenic microorganism”. So, UV-C is considered “germicidal UV”.
4 Things to Know About Our UV Soup Disinfection
1. 99.9 Percent Effective.
Studies performed by several independent laboratories and healthcare facilities show that UVC light disinfection systems are greater than 99.9 percent effective at killing deadly and dangerous pathogens, including C. difficile, MRSA, HIV, CRE, and an Ebola virus surrogate. Our UV Soup is reliable and produces repeatable results, every time it is used.
2.Complementary to Chemical Cleaning.
When combining chemical cleaning with UVC light disinfection application, disinfection rates improve tremendously.
This is because UVC light can disinfect surfaces and the air, while the chemical cleaners can penetrate past the first layer of a substance.
There are just batteries recurring costs associated with the operation. We offer 30 days refund and 6 months replacement subjected to condition.
In addition, our UV soap is mobile and can be easily moved from here to there for use in multiple departments or facilities.
