Business owners are being asked to reimagine the workplace in a way that “responsibly diminishes” the likelihood of COVID-19 transmission and infection. Any plan of action will have to include all those personal hygiene protocols we’ve been using.
Sure, we can wash our hands, wipe down counters, disinfect doorknobs and appliances, and double-down on those high-traffic areas such as break rooms, restrooms, and check-out lines. We all know that disinfection usually begins and ends with the use of chemicals. But aren’t we forgetting something? Sure, the surfaces are sterilized (we hope), but what about that other thing we’re swapping? What about the air?
If we’re all in this together, what do we do about the air?
We’re sharing the same air, and it’s the airborne transmission of pathogens, such as COVID-19, that presents the ever-present danger. We’ve gotta ask, is a mask enough to do the trick? And if it is, what happens if we take it off too soon, or if it slips down, or if it isn’t sealed sufficiently against our face or those of our children? Wouldn’t it be better if we didn’t have to depend upon individuals, and there was a more secure way to ensure the environment is clean? There is.
Ultraviolet light eliminates 99.9% of pathogens we find in air
The solution is an elegant one: ultraviolet light. For nearly 150 years, ultraviolet light has been used routinely in hospitals and healthcare facilities around the world to sterilize and disinfect surgical instruments, surfaces in operating rooms, and all manner of high touch surfaces and equipment.
More recently, ultraviolet light technology has been applied to disinfecting the air. The most effective wavelength of ultraviolet light to clean the air is known as UVC (ultraviolet light). Ultraviolet light efficiently disrupts the DNA in 99.9% of pathogens—preventing them from replicating and infecting their usual hosts. Therefore, it sterilizes the environment.
