Protect yourself and your loved ones from catching infections. A fast spreading and infectious virus is a serious situation. It not only spreads through human contact, but the bacteria and germs found in these viruses can live on surfaces and objects for longer time. To help create a healthier and safer environment, you must disinfect, and you must do it right. Myprohelpers experts are there to fulfill all your disinfection and sanitation needs. We use advance equipment and techniques to decontaminate and disinfect surfaces, objects, floors, walls, doors and windows etc. Book your appointment for Disinfection services with Myprohelpers to reduce the risk of spreading the microorganisms.
Applying UV light does not leave residuals in the air on the surface and in the water, which is an advantage over chemical disinfection methods. UV is proven to be very effective in inactivation of Giardia and Cryptosporidium with a very low dose.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
The inverse square law applies to germicidal ultraviolet as it does to light: the killing power decreases as the distance from the lamps increases. The average bacterium will be killed in ten seconds at a distance of six inches from the lamp in an Ultraviolet Germicidal Fixture.
UV light can have efficient inactivation of bacteria up to a distance of eight feet on either side and exposure time of 30 minutes is adequate.
UVGI is used in a variety of applications, such as food, air, and water purification.
UVC light is weak at the Earth’s surface since the ozone layer of the atmosphere blocks it.
UVGI devices can produce strong enough UVC light in circulating air or water systems to make them inhospitable environments to microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, molds, and other pathogens. UVGI can be coupled with a filtration system to sanitize air and water.
The application of UVGI to disinfection has been an accepted practice since the mid-20th century. It has been used primarily in medical sanitation and sterile work facilities. Increasingly, it has been employed to sterilize drinking and wastewater since the holding facilities are enclosed and can be circulated to ensure a higher exposure to the UV. In recent years, UVGI has found renewed application in air purifiers.
