UV technology have yielded new options to meet these standards, or more broadly to protect any type of office or other environment. Virus Safe has developed a line of products that can be installed in workspaces, bathrooms, conference rooms, and break rooms, to effectively kill germs in both the air and on surrounding surfaces. These germ-killing lights provide a real value to businesses in terms of cleaner environments, which have been shown to lead to more productive employees and reduced absenteeism.
Manual cleaning can be a very labour-intensive effort given the number of offices, surfaces, and objects within a building.
While UV disinfection is not a “new” technology, UV light is a proven disinfectant for surfaces, instruments, and air. With over 140 years of research behind it, Ultraviolet light has been repeatedly proven effective against pathogens, including C. diff, MRSA, E. coli, Salmonella, Norovirus, and many more. The ability of UV light to kill microorganisms is directly related to the energy dosage produced by the UV source as a function of spectrum, time and distance to the target.
