How Do Mobile UVC Units Kill Viruses?

Mobile UVC Units

One of the many lessons that we’ve all (re)learned over the past few years is the importance of hygiene. Not only do the spaces we frequently occupy need to look nice and clean, but they also need to be sanitary; killing the germs and viruses that threaten our well-being, like COVID-19, can be a complicated problem.

Luckily, modern technologies are offering increasingly efficient and effective solutions. Here, we take a look at one increasingly popular option, exploring exactly how the mobile UVC units created by VIOA kill viruses.

What Are Mobile UVC Units?

Mobile UVC units are portable decontaminating systems, designed to make sanitation easily accessible for a wide range of businesses. They are essential towers that radiate light from a specific part of the spectrum.

By making the disinfection process so much simpler, the goal is to enable businesses to disinfect areas on a regular basis, not just when it’s convenient and affordable to get a professional cleaning team in.

How Do They Work?

Mobile UVC units work by emitting a certain kind of light. UVC is the shortest wavelength variety of the three types of ultraviolet light, with a wavelength of between 200 and 280 nm.

The energy emitted by mobile UVC units has a powerful disinfecting effect, and in optimal conditions, kills up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses that it comes into contact with.

This means that you can disinfect surfaces without the use of harsh, expensive, and potentially dangerous chemicals.

While UVC energy can be dangerous for humans, mobile UVC units have measures to protect their users from any harmful effects. First, to operate them, you set them on a timer which will only come on when you leave the room.

This means you don’t have to be present while they’re active. If someone does enter the room, VIOA’s units have integrated Personnel Sensors that shut the machines down when they detect the presence of a person. This makes them extremely safe to operate.

Benefits Of Mobile UVC Units

There are several benefits to using mobile UVC units:

  • Cost-effective: While mobile UVC units do have an upfront cost, you’ll be quick to make your money back. Whenever you need to disinfect an area, you simply place your unit in the space and turn it on, then leave it to do its job. You don’t need to employ any cleaning professionals, saving you money and other cleaning resources in the long term.
  • Adaptive schedules: Seeing as the units can be set on a timer, you don’t need someone to be present to turn them on. This means that you don’t need to staff to stay in late after the work day has ended – just set the timer and leave the machine be to do its job.
  • Simple to operate: There’s no complex training process to use them, you just need to be able to read the instructions and set a simple timer.
