Commercial Deep Disinfectant Cleaning

When it comes to commercial cleaning services, LightRay UVC is an undisputed leader.  With a background in commercial janitorial services, founder Chris Cunningham understands the needs of both King County’s commercial companies and residential homes when it comes to cleaning requirements and expectations.

The value and importance of professional grade cleaning and disinfection services has never been more important than in these times.  With the rise of the virus that causes covid-19, the safety and effectiveness of hospital grade cleaning services have become crucial for our corporate clients and partners.  The ability to effectively disinfect and clean high touch surfaces cannot be overstated, and while many companies say they can deliver on health and safety cleaning requirements, LightRay UVC actually has the background to deliver.

UV C Light Sanitizer Equipment

Having started out as a janitorial service, LightRay UVC understands that business owners expect cleaning and disinfectant equipment to be able to clean offices and buildings like a home cleaning service.  However, you’re not seeking a maid service, and particularly given the COVID pandemic, many companies and business owners are reticent about outsourcing their cleaning needs to an outside company, and would prefer to maintain and manage cleaning equipment themselves.  As a result, LightRay UVC sells cleaning equipment that delivers, no matter your company’s size or focus.

For example, if you work in a profession in which you regularly work on one surface (e.g. kitchen counter, desktop, keyboards or phone), your priority when it comes to professional disinfection might be deep surface target sanitation. Our 95 Watt Handheld UVC Surface Sanitizer destroys 99.9% of harmful bacteria, viruses, mold spores, yeasts, fungi, C. diff, and odors. It’s so powerful that typical molds are effectively treated in half of the time.  This sanitizer can be held close to surfaces for strong sanitation or held longer at further distance to reach hard-to-get surfaces (e.g. gaps between cupboards).

UV Light for room disinfection

In addition to needing a handheld  UV sanitizer, some clients might require an entire room to be sanitized.  For whole room sanitation, we suggest our Large Tower – ideal if you work in a setting where it’s important to ensure the entire space is disinfected of germs e.g. class room, office space or assisted living where germs can easily affect people.

Whatever your needs, when it comes to cleaning and sterilization, it’s crucial to have the ability to engage with, integrate and use the latest technological innovations.  One of the strongest protections that nature has to offer is UVC light.  UVC radiation is a known disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces. UVC radiation has effectively been used for decades to reduce the spread of bacteria, such as tuberculosis. For this reason, UVC lamps are often called "germicidal" lamps.  UVC radiation may also be effective in inactivating the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes COVID-19).  LightRay UVC is committed to bringing outdoor air cleanliness indoors to you by integrating ultraviolet-C radiation into the equipment we sell and the services we provide to our clients.

An obvious question may be raised about the benefits UVC has over traditional chemical cleaning agents like Clorox.  Besides the safety hazards that these traditional cleaning agents provide (the fact that they can be ingested, to tragic effect, for example, as well as the damage they can cause to skin), there’s the reality that traditional chemical cleaners are indiscriminate in what they kill, or if they do. If they are successful, they generally only eradicate the physical virus; UV light by contrast kills viruses by damaging their DNA or RNA, crippling their ability to make copies of themselves. As a result, hospitals have been using UVC lamps and even UVC robots to disinfect the air in rooms, because they do a much more thorough job of eradicating the environment of the virus altogether.

Whether working with medical/dental offices, schools, restaurants, gyms, or casinos, and whatever the needs or priorities presented by clients, LightRay UVC has provided professional disinfection and cleaning equipment for an array of companies and operated franchises.  An independently owned and operated company itself, LightRay UVC prides itself on providing peace of mind to our clients and corporate partners.
