How Do UV Germicidal Lights Help Me?

UV germicidal lights harness the power of ultraviolet light, which humans are unable to see, but which affects our world nonetheless. If you’ve ever gone to a concert or ridden a dark ride at an amusement park, and your white clothing begins glowing in the dark, that’s the effects of an ultraviolet light reacting to the chemicals in your laundry detergent. They can have a much more practical effect in your home: helping to keep your family healthier and happier as a result. Here’s a quick breakdown on how UV germicidal lights help you.

Death to Bacteria and Germs

Biological contaminants are all too common here in Hammond, LA, where our high heat and higher humidity form a breeding ground for germs and other creepy crawlies. But UV light puts a stop to them dead. The light affects their DNA, rendering them unable to replicate and preventing them from spreading into your home. And it does this while remaining absolutely harmless to human beings, dogs, cats and any other form of pet.

UV Lights Have Maximum Impact for Minimal Space

Obviously, you can’t set up a UV light in every corner of your house, but your heating and air conditioning system makes an excellent way to “scrub” as much air as possible. The light is set up at the apex to your duct system, where the air circulates throughout your house. The light stretches from one side of the duct to another, forcing any germs in the air to pass through it and be affected. As your system continues to circulate air, more and more of it passes through the light, and since there’s no mesh or filters, there’s no way for the biological contaminants to slip past. Over time, your whole house can be “scrubbed,” lowering the risk of infection and keeping your household healthy.
