Fight Allergies in Richmond with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was first used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Richmond home’s environment healthier.
A UV lamp can disinfect HVAC systems and boost the air quality in your Richmond home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.
This can bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid areas where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC unit last longer, since they keep parts clean.
Our Experts can advise you on the unit that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Eveready Service Experts is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and operate constantly. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to destroy the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as little as 10 seconds, this potent light stops contaminants from growing throughout your HVAC system and home.
Two studies have shown how practical UV light is in battling germs and mold.
In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to take care of 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.
In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold amounts in a commercial office building’s HVAC equipment.
A germicidal system can also wipe out odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not effective against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is harmless as long as you take some safety measures.
The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a smaller wavelength than light you can detect. It’s behind creating painful sunburns. Ongoing overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.
The type of light used in a germicidal system is more powerful, so it’s important to let Eveready Service Experts take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look right at the light or let bare skin be exposed to it.
