Benefits of Using UV-C Light for Disinfection

Traditional disinfection methods have been used for centuries – but are they good enough? The truth is that even the most rigorous cleaning with hot water, bleach, and disinfectants can miss harmful germs and bacteria. In the worst-case scenario, those things may cause illness. On the other hand, UV-C light disinfection uses ultraviolet technology to kill all germs and bacteria more quickly and is a great supplement for other methods. Some are reluctant to try it, but at Tonvoy Technology, we know that the benefits far outweigh the expense of making the switch. Here are the top five benefits of using UV-C light for disinfection. 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. 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 me 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 destroys molds and spores? Other disinfection methods may not – or they may leave a damp environment where fungi can thrive. Since UV-C disinfection is a dry method, you can be sure that it will take care of existing mold and prevent its growth in the future. 3- UV LIGHT DISINFECTION KILLS PATHOGENS WITHOUT IMMUNITY If you have followed the news about antibiotic-resistant bacteria, you know that the use of some traditional antimicrobial agents and disinfectants has had dire consequences. The development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is a significant problem in the medical community. Unlike traditional disinfection methods, UV light disinfection is a physical method for killing bacteria and germs.  Therefore, bacteria and germs in question cannot build immunity to it. That’s a huge plus, particularly for assisted living facilities and multifunction environment. 4- UV LIGHT DISINFECTION IS AFFORDABLE It might surprise you to know that UV-C 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 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 as it is a dry disinfection method, it wont harm or destroy any of the user’s belongings. 5- UV LIGHT DISINFECTION IS SAFE One of the most common questions we get about UV 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 light is safe if used properly. UV light is less likely to cause harm than the harsh chemicals in cleaning products if you take the appropriate precautions. Our devices are following high EU safety measures to ensure the product will only turn on when it is not directed towards human beings eyes or skin.
