UV-Light Disinfection is the Road Ahead

The world is struggling right now due to the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic. With the fatal occurrence that made the whole world feel a blow, many crucial lessons have been learned—especially those on sanitation. Most of us have found ourselves stacking bundles of traditional liquid sanitizers and disinfectants. In a small setup capacity, they may be more than sufficient, like one’s household premises. When the matter goes beyond one’s personal space, it isn’t easy to regulate hygiene. In public spaces, especially, it is a challenge where many people are exposed to the same surfaces.

The spread of viral infections could be observed through the transmission of germs via surfaces. In the wake of the Covid19, personal hygiene methods like washing hands have become prevalent to ensure sanitation. Since cleansing of these surfaces from time to time (short intervals) is practically very difficult, UV light disinfection is the only solution to keep ourselves safe.

A Tool for Your Hygiene

However, what if the problem of surface disinfection can be achieved by using a simple tool? A tool backed by UV light. Now you may be wondering how UV rays would help disinfect shared surfaces? There are UV light-backed sanitizers like the PXL Sanitizer designed specially to kill viruses and bacteria on any surface.

How does Ultraviolet Light Disinfection work?

Pulsed UV light sources have been proven clinically to decontaminate surfaces. This is especially useful in the food and beverage industry where hygiene cannot be sacrificed at any cost. The pulsed UV light makes the ultraviolet light sanitizer unique with its wavelength of 200-280 nm. With such an impressive emission bandwidth, antibiotic-resistant microorganisms are killed. Thanks to the tool, various microbes like E Coli, Salmonella, etc. are subjected to UV light disinfection.

Under certain conditions, if the light can reach the germs through the air, water, or surfaces, the viruses are weakened and destroyed. The other factor that determines the effectiveness of the UV light disinfection is the exposure time. The more a surface is exposed to the light, the more germs killed. In 5 minutes, it is proven that the germ count falls flat to 6 cells from 65 million cells.

Beware!

However, you need to remember UV-light disinfection is only valid for surfaces, water, and air. Humans should keep away from it. Even though there hasn’t been proof of any skin damage, the UV rays are not suitable for the human body. So, don’t consider yourself equal to a kitchen countertop!

When turned on while placed over the surface, the tool will disinfect it after one touches the surface. You wouldn’t have to be worried about cleaning the covers again. It can purify most of the surfaces, like keys, countertops, slabs, toilet seats, etc., which are the most commonly shared surfaces. A compact design, easy usage, and the power pack of UV light makes it a sensible choice.
