What Is Ultraviolet Light?
Ultraviolet light for the use of germicidal irradiation is not a new concept. In fact, it has been used as such since the late 19th to early 20th century. UV-C is a type of ultraviolet light that has wavelengths between 200 – 280 nanometers (nm). Light within those wavelengths can be used for UV-C disinfection. The optimal germicidal wavelength is 254 nm, which is where the Vioguard products operate.
What Is UV Light Effective Against?
Science has shown us that UV-C light can inactivate broad spectrum of pathogenic bacteria and viruses. These include Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) that are difficult to treat. Examples of these infections include Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli and Clostridium difficile. When it comes down to it, UV-C light is the only way to completely obliterate harmful pathogens that are antibiotic-resistant.
