Hospitals and laboraties often use ultraviolet (UV) light to kill microbes but the practice has one majör drawback: ıt can harm humans. So UV lights only do their killing in places such as empty operating rooms and under unoccuppied lab hoods. Now, researchers have discovered that people might be safe around a shorter wavelenght of microbe-slaying UV light, theoretically turning it into a new tool that could slow the spread of disease in schools, crowded air planes, food processing plants, and even operating rooms and labs.


UV light is invisible to the human eye, but if we could see it, it would come after violet on the light spectrum, hence the name ‘’ultraviolet’’ light. One of the ways UV light is different  from the light we can see is the way its high frequency affects organisms, such as bacteria and mold.UV light can disrupt these nasties at a cellular level, making them unable to reproduce. That’s what makes UV light useful for decontamination.

There are three different wavelenghts of UV light: UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. Only UV-C light, which has the highest frequency, can be used to eleminate bacteria and mold.

What is a UV light? A UV Light? A UV Lamp artificially creates UV light so it can be put to various uses, such as sterilizing and purifying.UV Lamps come in many different sizes and shapes, allowing them to be used for various purposes, such as detecting counterfeit money, inspecting artwork , or by a ticket agent checking your re-entry stamp a at a concert.

A UV Lamp is different from a regular lamp because it’s typically made of quartz instead of glass. Inside, there is an inert gas mixed with mercury. When the lamp is plugged in, electricity reacts with the mercury, and the lamp produces UV lights. The type of UV light emitted depends on the pressure inside the lamp. Not all UV lamp produce the UV-C germ-killing wavelenghts.

How Can a UV Light Benefit My Indoor Air Quality?

The coils on the HVAC equipment in your home/office – such as an air conditioner or air purifier – are prone to the build up of harmfull bacteria and mold. When these coils aren’t cleaned properly , airborne contaminants circulate into your home. This makes it uncomfortable for family members with respiratory problems, and it can aggravate allergies or asthma and also cause sickness. Using a UV lamp to sterilize the coils on your HVAC equipment has been proven to improve indoor air quality.
