When a UV-C light is turned on, the number of microbes in the air and on all surfaces reached by the UV rays is reduced significantly. For example, in just a few minutes the bacteria Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Listeria, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, etc. can be reduced by 99% at a distance of 3 m from the device.
This enables the system to reach areas that would otherwise be unreachable with solid objects such as cleaning products and disinfectants, like hidden areas in flooring and furniture.
Where chemical disinfectants must be used, irradiating the surfaces prevents black-out areas, does not generate resistant species and can be used both day and night (without human presence), avoiding rapid re-contamination of surfaces and keeping them constantly in optimal microbiological conditions.
