Handheld vs Whole Room Sterilization

Room Sterilizers In a study sponsored by the EPA, 87% is the average amount of time that we spend indoors. This makes sense but is troubling when you combine it with another story; according to other studies done by the EPA, during that time you’ll be exposed to 2 to 5 times more pollutants than you would be outdoors. It somewhat intuitively turns out that indoor air is just outdoor air combined with pollutants, trace chemicals, and other potentially harmful microbes. The result? Headache... Read More

Electrostatic Disinfection Services v.s UVC Infeciton Control

When it comes to disinfection services, as well as cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects, consumers are starting to shift away from traditional disinfection agents. It’s entirely understandable: janitorial cleaning agents like dusting or using Clorox may be tried and true. They often do little more than spreading around dirt and dust, redistributing germs and bacteria into the air and onto other surfaces. Additionally, wet dusting often involves the use of cleaning chemicals and a... Read More

How Long Does It Take To Sterilize Surfaces With UV Light?

100 years ago, scientists discovered something revolutionary: if you exposed pathogens to ultraviolet (UV) light, it was difficult for those germs to reproduce.  They specifically discovered that light in the 254 nanometer (254 nm) range effectively inactivated germs and pathogens.  (All ultraviolet light is calculated on a UV wavelength.) As a result, today it is common for disinfection technology to incorporate ultraviolet light (specifically UV light in the UVC spectrum) in order ... Read More
