"Four Pillars of UVC Disinfection for Healthcare" – Introduction

Why utilize the 4 Pillars of UVC Disinfection in Healthcare?

UVC technology has been recognized and referenced as a valuable tool for disinfecting air and surfaces in healthcare settings since the early 1900's. Using UVC in occupied, and unoccupied spaces can help lower the number of microorganisms in the environment. UVC technology is proven, well researched, and recommended by the CDC, WHO, ASHRAE and other organizations. UVC is established as safe, considered low maintenance, and a cost-effective technology. Most importantly, it serves as an adjunct cleaning approach in many different environments, where additional disinfection of air and surfaces is needed. The 4 pillars are comprised of 4 specific applications, which in combination can offer superior air and surface disinfection.
