Deep cleaning with ultraviolet light is quickly becoming the preferred way to sanitize surfaces in homes, offices, hospitals, and everywhere in between. This is because UV-C light has the power to obliterate microorganisms that are a threat to human health.
Viruses, bacteria, and other harmful pathogens don’t stand a chance against germicidal UV-C.
So what exactly is UV-C light, and how does it differ from other types of rays? Ultraviolet light is categorized into three groups: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV-A and UV-B rays are found in the atmosphere and safe for human exposure. UV-C light, on the other hand, is rare and strong. It is considered germicidal and can be dangerous to human eyes, so it must be used by a professional in a controlled environment.
How does it work?
UV-C light penetrates the membranes of viruses, bacteria, mold, and dust mites, attacking their DNA, which terminates them and prevents their ability to spread. Green Gorilla Solutions uses a state-of-the-art UV-C Sanitizing wand which emits a blue spectrum of light to help us see the surface area that is being cleaned. Indirectly contacting or viewing the blue light produced by the lamp does not expose the user to UV-C.
Where can it be used?
UV-C light is safe and effective to use wherever biological contaminants and germs need to be removed. We have sanitized the following environments with our unique UV-C wand:
- Food processing facilities
- Water treatment and HVAC systems
- And more
A Difference That Can Be Felt
After the sanitizing light is used, the cleanliness can be felt immediately. Bedding, couches, and other surfaces will smell and feel fresh. If musty odor or pet smells were present before, they will be virtually eliminated — no scrubbing necessary!
A Safe and Sustainable Alternative
For decades, people have reached for harsh chemicals to clean and sanitize. Sanitizing with UV-C light means you don’t need to pollute our water and add unnecessary product packaging to our landfills. Reduced production of household cleansers means fewer chemicals in our environment and reduced fuel expenditures for transporting them to the marketplace.
