Slow the Spread of H1N1 (Swine Flu*) Using Germicidal UV Light

Keep Your Workplace Well

With the cold and flu season in full swing, UVCM's High Output UVC Germicidal Systems are one of the most viable options for keeping homes and businesses healthier each year.

Schools and businesses around the world are learning of the time-proven benefits of using UV lights to slow the spread of viruses, such as H1N1 (Swine Flu*), and other infectious diseases. This simple product is proven to kill up to 90%* of harmful airborne microbes and other common cold germs and diseases.

Many have paid quite a bit for the purchase of a UVC system to improve their indoor air quality using the same proven method healthcare professionals have used for nearly a 100 years; with the addition of the UVC Germicidal System, the workplace can be healthier upon installation.

The Facts

  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the use of UV light in a multitude of applications.
  • The U.S. Government now specifies that UV light should be used in wet air handling units to improve indoor air quality by reducing allergens and molds in government buildings.
  • The Air Institute of Respiratory Education suggests UV lights be used in buildings for indoor air quality purposes, stating it may be the final line of defense against those diseases which have developed resistance to drugs (such as tuberculosis).
  • According to Dr. Wally Kowalski of the Aerobiological Engineering Dept. at Penn State University, the ultraviolet component of sunlight is the main reason microbes die more quickly in outdoor air.
  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the use of UV lights in all indoor environments, specifically public access buildings such as homeless shelters and hospitals, to prevent the spread of disease.

Did you know ...

The use of Ultraviolet (UVC) light as a surface disinfectant has been a successful and widely accepted practice dating back to the early-20th century. In more recent years, this proven technology has found a new application in the purification of indoor air. When placed in the HVAC (heating & cooling system) of a building, UVCM's High Output UVC Light Systems work around the clock to reduce airborne pollutants, viruses (like H1N1 flu), bacteria, mold and allergens. On average, the total volume of air in your building or home is completely re-circulated through the UVC system every 10-15 minutes (4 to 6 times an hour), killing up to 90% of harmful airborne microbes and greatly improving in-door air quality.

All of this is accomplished using very little energy, without the use of chemicals, and causing no harmful side effects.
