Fight Allergies in Dallas with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was initially used to treat tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Dallas home’s environment cleaner.

A UV lamp can disinfect HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Dallas home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.

This can prompt relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid areas where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC unit last longer, since they keep pieces clean.

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and operate all the time. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to destroy the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as little as 10 seconds, this potent light halts contaminants from multiplying throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in combating germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to wipe out 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold levels in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.

A germicidal system can also neutralize odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not effective against dust, which is best managed by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you use a couple of preventive measures.

The sun lets off ultraviolet light, which has a lower wavelength than light you can detect. It’s responsible for causing painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more concentrated, so it’s important to let Levy & Son Service Experts take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or let bare skin touch it.
