UVC light disinfection uses ultraviolet technology to kill all germs and bacteria more quickly and is a great supplement for other traditional methods. Some are still reluctant to try it, however the benefits far outweigh the expense of making the switch from traditional disinfection methods to UVC disinfection. Here are the top six benefits of using UVC light for disinfection.

UV light disinfection is safe for use on food as well as food and nonfood items. While humans can be harmed by excessive UV exposure, proper protection makes this a safe and non-toxic disinfection method. Additionally, now UVC disinfection robots have human induction sensors which will help to prevent UV exposure injuries.
UVC light kills a wide array of harmful organisms, including foodborne pathogens, natural microbiota, molds, and yeasts
UVC light also destroys molds and spores. On the other hand, other disinfection methods may not – or they may leave a damp environment where fungi can thrive. Since UVC disinfection is a dry method, you can be sure that it will take care of existing mold and prevent its growth in the future.
It might surprise you to know that UV disinfection is an affordable sanitization method. A one-time investment in UVC light disinfection technology can save you time and money for years. UVC disinfection machines actually have low maintenance costs over the life of the product and since the unit can operate autonomously when installed you don’t have the associated labor costs over time like other methods do.
The takeaway here is that switching to UVC light disinfection can help protect your guests, save your staff time and effort, save you money, and give you additional value-proposition for your customers. Why not try it?
