UV-C radiation is a known disinfectant for air, water, and surfaces that can help mitigate the risk of acquiring an infection and has been used extensively for more than 40 years. All bacteria and viruses tested to date (many hundreds over the years, including various coronaviruses) respond to UV-C disinfection. There are no known pathogens resistant to UV-C. A clear indication that UV-C light can play a valuable part in your protection strategy.
UV-C LIGHT IS GERMICIDAL
UV-C light is germicidal because it deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. This destroys their ability to multiply and cause disease. In other words, it prevents the DNA from being unzipped for replication, and the organism is unable to reproduce. In fact, when the organism tries to replicate, it dies. So how does it really help us? Well here is a list of benefits.
5 BENEFITS OF USING UV-C LIGHT FOR DISINFECTION
BENEFIT #1: UV-C LIGHT DISINFECTION IS NON-TOXIC
Arguably, the most important benefit of UV-C light disinfection is that it’s non-toxic. Unlike harsh chemicals that are sometimes used in cleaning and sanitization products, UV-C light is environmentally friendly. UV-C light disinfection is a physical process, not a chemical one.
Similar to both the JOYLEE™ Ultraviolet Sterilizer Rod, using the devices' UV-C light to disinfect is safe for use on food as well as food prep services and non-food items. While your phones are completely safe to sterilize as well with the JOYLEE™ Professional UV Sterilizer Box.
BENEFIT #2: UV LIGHT DISINFECTION IS AN EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE FORM OF DISINFECTION
The next key benefit of disinfecting with UV-C light is that this method of disinfection can be far more effective than other methods. UV-C light kills a wide array of harmful organisms. For example, did you know that UV-C light also destroys molds and spores? Other disinfection methods may not – or they may leave a damp environment where fungi can thrive. Since UV disinfection is a dry method, you can be sure that it will take care of the existing mold and prevent its growth in the future.
BENEFIT #3: UV-C LIGHT DISINFECTION KILLS PATHOGENS WITHOUT IMMUNITY
Unlike traditional disinfection methods, UV-C light disinfection is a physical method for killing bacteria. Therefore, bacteria in question cannot build immunity to it. So it's a guaranteed kill. That’s a huge plus, particularly for hospitals and assisted living facilities.
BENEFIT #4: UV-C LIGHT DISINFECTION IS AFFORDABLE
It might surprise you to know that UV disinfection is an affordable sanitization method. People sometimes assume that it’s costly because it uses technology instead of chemicals, but that’s not the case.
A one-time investment in UV-C light disinfection technology can save you time and money for years because you will not have maintenance costs over the life of the product and since the devices can operate autonomously, you don’t have the associated labor costs over time as other methods do.
BENEFIT #5: UV-C LIGHT DISINFECTION IS SAFE
One of the most common questions we get about UV-C light disinfection is, “Is it safe to use?” People tend to associate UV exposure with risks such as sunburn, but the key thing to understand is that UV-C light is safe if used properly. UV-C light is less likely to cause harm than the harsh chemicals in cleaning products if you take the appropriate precautions.
