Many cleaning products used today use harsh chemicals which can be harmful to humans, animals, and the environment. While UV-C light is harmful to be in direct contact with, it does not carry the dangers of chemical cleaners as UV-C light kills germs directly in a physical process as opposed to breaking them down chemically, like most cleaners do.
The non-toxicity of UV-C light cleaning is particularly valuable for use in food preparation environments, including the restaurant, hospitality, and medical industries. All food, non-food, and food-prep items are safe to consume/use directly after a UV-C light cleaning with no adverse effects.
UV-C light is capable of killing a wide variety of harmful organisms that many other disinfecting methods aren’t able to kill or are unable to kill nearly as effectively.
A primary example of the cleansing power of UV-C light that is unmatched by most other cleaning methods is its ability to kill mold and other spores. UV-C light cleaning is a dry process that kills any mold currently inhabiting a space, while also preventing future mold from developing in the future. Few other methods can boast such cleaning power and may even leave behind a moist environment which is conducive to mold growth.
As many other disinfection methods use chemicals to kill bacteria, this allows bacteria to potentially build immunity to said chemicals. As UV-C light uses a physical process to kill the bacteria directly, there is no opportunity for the bacteria to develop an immunity. This guarantees that UV-C light will continue to be an effective method for killing bacteria indefinitely.
Although people often associate technological solutions with expensiveness, with UV-C light treatment that is not the case. The cost of UV-C light cleaning versus chemical cleaning is very comparable and affordability is no more of a concern than with other sanitation methods.
A: Sure does! Covid-19 (SARS COV 2) is what is known as a "communicable" illness. All communicable illness stand no chance against this process of disinfection and prevention. This also includes the flu (INFLUENZA). We all know how long that has been around.

Easy, We have a sticker that goes on your front door! This helps communicate to everyone who walks in the door that they can peace of mind when in this facility.
A: The “UV” stands for “ultraviolet.” Ultraviolet light is a type of electromagnetic radiation - the same radiation that makes black lights glow and gives you sunburn. The “C” is a reference to the wavelength the radiation emits at. Ultraviolet light that emits in the “C “ wavelength is referred to as “hard UV,” and is able to kill or inactivate microorganisms, including illness-causing pathogens.
A: UV-C damages pathogens physically by disrupting the molecular bonds that holds them together. When a pathogen’s DNA is disrupted in such a fashion, it leaves it unable to infect or reproduce.
A: UV-C is indeed dangerous for humans to be in direct contact with. Exposure to the eyes or skin for even short periods of time can cause adverse health effects. UV-Care’s certified technicians are trained and equipped to deal with UV-C in a safe and careful manner.
A: Yes, UV-C is harmful to plants and will need to be removed from any room that is going to be UV-C treated.
A: Yes, UV-C is safe to use on and around food and will also disinfect any food or food products.
A: Yes, UV-C has proven effective in the killing of a wide variety of molds and fungi.
A: The amount of time and lights needed differs based on the size of the location being treated and how many rooms the location has.
