Why It’s Time to Invest in UV Disinfection for Your Business
You can do all the cleaning you want with the harshest chemicals available and still not cut down on a lot of disease transmission in your building. The reason is that many illnesses are caused by germs that float in the air. COVID-19 is a prime example. While initially businesses were disinfecting surfaces daily, scientific research soon found that it was ineffective because the virus particles were in the air, not on surfaces. With more and more people concerned about their health and the germs they come into contact with, it’s time to start thinking about indoor air disinfection.
Air in indoor spaces poses a huge threat to human health, as it recirculates germs that can make people sick. However, you can’t bleach the air to kill off germs. Instead, UV disinfection can offer a solution to killing germs that might be airborne in your facility.
How UV Rays Help with Indoor Air Disinfection
UV disinfection uses ultraviolet rays to attack germs before they can infect people. Our UVPhasor technology uses upper air UV disinfection to create a barrier for continuous air disinfection. The UVC rays are incredibly effective against all types of pathogens, including the COVID-19 virus.
With the COVID-19 virus, as it comes into contact with UV light, the light damages the protein coating surrounding the virus. This essentially makes the virus harmless because it can’t infect anyone. This is how UV disinfection works. It’s a complex process that requires things like direct exposure, dosage, and duration of exposure to the UVC rays, which is why it’s critical to choose the right UV disinfection system for your business.
The Public Wants to Know What Measures You’re Taking to Protect Them
So, why is it important for your business to invest in UV light disinfection to disinfect the air from harmful germs? In a nutshell, your employees and customers expect it.
More than ever, the pandemic has shown people just how vulnerable we all are to germs. The public now has an increased awareness of how quickly germs spread and how harmful they can really be. As such, they expect public spaces to do their part to protect their health.
Yet, confidence in that is quite low. Surveys from this year show that people are still uncomfortable in public places, and less than half of people feel confident that building owners are doing their part to protect them from germs like COVID. However, the survey also showed that visual cues of disinfection do typically make people feel more comfortable. What better way to show your customers and employees you care about their health than signs explaining that you have continuous air disinfection that is more than 99.9% effective against pathogens?
