UV-C Cleaning Systems
What Is UVC?
The three main types of UV rays are UVA, UVB, and UVC. Their light wavelengths are measured by nanometers (nm)
- UV-A (long wave) from 315 to 400 nm
- UV-B (medium wave) from 280 to 315 nm
- UV-C (short wave) from 200 to 280 nm
Because UVC light is a high intensity light, UVC light effectively kills pathogens,viruses and microorganisms by damaging their DNA and RNA, making them unable to replicate (reproduce), which leads to cell death and how close objects/surfaces are to the light. Objects that are closest to the light receive the highest intensity and require shorter period of time to kill microorganisms. Objects that are further away from the light can still be disinfected if their exposure time is increased.

How Does UVC Light Work For Disinfection?
Wavelengths between 185-254 nanometers are considered germicidal because they have the shortest wavelength, highest energy, and can kill pathogenic microorganisms in the air and on surfaces. This makes the UVC spectrum the most efficient for killing viruses and bacteria.
UVC lamps can kill up to 99.9% of most viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and mold spores and help prevent future mold growth. Definitely an option if you have mold due to water damage in your home.
How effective the UVC light is, is determined by how much time and how close objects/surfaces are to the light. Objects that are closest to the light receive the highest intensity and require shorter period of time to kill microorganisms.
Objects that are further away from the light can still be disinfected if their exposure time is increased.
What Are The Advantages Of Sterilizing Using UVC Light?
Disinfecting with UVC light eliminates the need to use harsh or potentially toxic chemicals, and no chemical residues are left behind. UVC light can sanitize both the air and surfaces. Entire rooms can be disinfected; bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen, laundry rooms and hampers, etc. Items that might be damaged using traditional disinfectants can be sterilized using UVC; facial masks, mail, delivered packages, mobile phones, tablets, keyboards, electric shavers, etc. In killing bacteria, you can also eliminate the odors they cause; laundry hampers, refrigerators, freezers, shoes. At a distance of 6 inches away from a surface, UVC light can kill the average bacteria within 10 seconds. UVC light can sanitize hard-to-clean nooks and crannies that might be missed with traditional cleaning methods. UVC light is effective against “superbugs” that are resistant to antibiotics. It can inactivate 90% of spore-forming bacteria within 40 seconds.
How Long Will It Take To Sanitize A Room, Object, Or Surface?
The required time for killing different species/microorganisms varies due to their size and shape, how powerful the light or lamp is, how close the surface is to the light rays, and how long they are exposed. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations related to distance and surface exposure time. For a typical 60 watt light bulb:
- 5 minutes for objects or surfaces within 3-4 feet of the light, such as masks, countertops, cups, bottles, cell phones, clothing, etc
- 5 minutes to treat the air in a 50 square foot room
- 15 minutes to treat the air in a 200 square foot room
- 30-60 minutes to treat the air in a 400 square foot room
