Since bacteria is only a one-cell organism, they rely on their DNA to survive. This is where UV purification comes in handy; if a bacterial cell’s DNA is sufficiently damaged, it triggers a self-destruct mechanism, rendering it harmless. UV Air Disinfection can be used in many environments that have frequent footfall and high airflows such as food factories, high tech manufacturing, medical facilities, and high-volume public building.
Some bacteria and viruses can travel through the air, causing and worsening diseases, especially within the office environment. Most office environments now use an air-con system to heat and cool the atmosphere, this system reuses the air within the rooms and either warms or cools depending on the need, but it does not remove the bacteria that may be harboring within it, it just pumps the same air back out.
When bacteria can spread this effortlessly, illnesses can spread between colleagues a lot easier, but there are ways this can be prevented. UV Air disinfection is a perfect way to help kill the bacteria that can move around the room. UV Air purification systems can be free-standing or installed within the air system.
Benefits of UV Disinfection:
As we know that illnesses can be spread through the air, especially when systems circulate the same air through buildings, which is why when a UV disinfection is introduced into the system the bacteria that would normally circulate is killed before it can spread around a building meaning that employees are less likely to take sick leave. Also, if this is introduced in the home your family is safer from catching any illnesses that may be brought home from school and work.
Other air purification systems require regular maintenance, the air filters require changing at least twice in one year. Whereas with a UV air disinfection system there are no filters to worry about, the system runs completely on light alone. The only sort of maintenance you would need to worry about is the replacement of the bulb after a couple of years, which will only take a couple of minutes for you or your maintenance team to do.
