Keeping your home clean and air safe with over 10 years of experience
UV Light Installation in Houston
While microbes and pathogens can be harmful for your health and disrupt the cleanliness of your air, you may find the use of abrasive chemicals in your home off putting. And we can’t blame you – some people are extra sensitive to the chemicals used in disinfection and mold remediation services; others are wary of possible unknown side effects of accidentally breathing in these chemicals; still others may be worried that despite best efforts of disinfection professionals, the smallest surface may have been overlooked.
If for these, or any other, reasons you may doubt the efficacy of a manual disinfection process, Air Quality Express has another option for you: disinfection and decontamination by ultraviolet light exposure.
Why Should I Install UV Lights in My Home?
The ultimate disinfection device, UV lights are used in hospitals to guarantee the eradication of bacteria that cause hospital-acquired infections. Ultraviolet light’s ability to sanitize a whole room with minimal labor and no chemicals has made it the go-to disinfecting tactic for US hospitals since 2007. UV light disinfection has also been used in laboratory, industrial, and water treatment applications for decades.
What Are the Benefits of UV Lights in My Home?
While ultraviolet light installations might cost a little bit more upfront, you will quickly reap the health and financial benefits. Among these benefits are:
Ultraviolet Light is a Highly Effective Germicidal Solution
You’ve read that UV lights are used in hospitals, but do you know what makes ultraviolet lights so effective at disinfection?
UV lights work by breaking down the molecular bonds in a microbe’s DNA – essentially deactivating the germ. This means a whole room treated with UV light rays can be successfully decontaminated in minutes! And while direct exposure to conventional UV lights can be harmful to human health, research has shown that continuous low-dose, far-UVC lights in a medical setting destroys viruses all the same – meaning UV lights will soon become the safest, most cost-effective method of keeping your home as clean as possible.
UV Lights Save You Money
Once you’ve paid to install your UV lights, the only costs you have to further worry about are maintenance and light bulbs. Depending on where you install your lights, this could save you thousands of dollars in mold remediation and disinfection services, water treatments, home cleaning services, cleaning supplies, and medical bills.
UV Lights Give You Peace of Mind
Do you ever worry that no matter how hard you spray and scrub, you just aren’t eradicating germs in your home completely? When you install UV lights in your home, you no longer have to worry about germs and the effect they may have on your family’s health – when properly maintained, UV lights ensure that your home environment is as sterile as a doctor’s office.
Where are UV Lights Used?
Ultraviolet lights are used in several different applications in home disinfection, including:
UV Air Purification
The most popular application of ultraviolet lights in home disinfection, UV lights are installed inside your HVAC system near the coils, to prevent mold or bacterial growth before it can proliferate in your home. Combined with regular replacement of AC filters, this allows you to take a proactive, germicidal approach to your indoor air quality without worry for expensive follow-up cleaning services.
UV Water Purification
Another popular home installation, UV water purifiers work with your existing water filter to ensure the cleanest possible drinking water. While traditional water filters operate by physically separating particles from the water, a UV water purifier doesn’t remove particles at all – it simply deactivates what’s left. Studies show that UV water purification deactivates 99.99% of organisms in water – making it the most effective form of water purification.
UV Room Purification
Finally, Air Quality Express has a variety of devices to perform sterilization of the surfaces of your home, even eradicating the germs in the fibers of your carpet. These devices use a low dose wavelength of UVC to ensure the safety of everyone in your home.
