A Truly “Touchless” method of cleaning
UV Sanitation is a disinfecting method that uses short wavelength ultraviolet light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. It is effective against 99.9999% of all surface microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, mites) without even touching the surface. This makes it an excellent solution for adding a finishing touch to any cleaning, especially around electronic devices.
Benefits of UV Sanitation
Unlike harsh chemicals that are sometimes used in cleaning products, UV light is environmentally friendly. The disinfection is a physical process, not a chemical one. While human beings can be harmed by excessive UV exposure, proper protection for the cleaning staff ensures it to be a safe and non-toxic disinfection method.
UV light kills a wide array of harmful organisms that many other cleaning methods do not. For example, UV light destroys molds and spores, while other disinfections may not, or may leave a damp environment where they can re-form. UV disinfection is a completely dry method, so you can be sure it will take care of existing mold and prevent its future growth.
If you have followed the news about antibiotic-resistant bacteria, you know that there are some extreme consequences to many traditional antimicrobial agents. The development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is already becoming a significant problem. Unlike traditional methods, UV light is a physical method. Therefore, bacteria cannot build immunity.
Is UV right for me?
We recommend it for any cleaning that takes place near electronics, as it is completely dry and reduces the risk of damaging the devices. We also recommend it for touch points, and hard to reach corners and crevices. Surfaces that require thorough scrubbing for dirt and grease removal may be better suited applying detail cleaning methods to their surfaces prior to any UV or other disinfecting method.
