Ultraviolet light or UV-C light is getting a lot of attention in the media when it comes to disinfecting hospitals, shared public spaces and even surgical masks and that is because UV light is extremely effective killing micro-organisms, including coronaviruses like the one that causes COVID-19.
Now its time to apply this known technology in your home! The short-wave spectrum of ultraviolet light called UV-C is dangerous to all genetic material and therefore is a germicide. This means it can kill up to 99.99% of bacteria and viruses.
The sanitizing effects of UV lights have been seen with other coronaviruses, including SARS. Studies have shown that the SARS Coronavirus is inactivated in as little as 15 minutes of UVC exposure making it impossible for the virus to replicate.
