Why do you need a UV-C steriliser?

There are three types of UV lights, namely UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. However, not all UV lights are effective at sterilisation. Only UV-C light has energy levels that are high enough for sterilisation.

UV-C light is also known as ultra-violet light with a wavelength of 100-280nm. It has the shortest wavelength and highest energy as compared to UV-A and UV-B. Therefore, making it effective in eliminating fungus, moulds, bacterias, viruses and microorganisms.

Since 1878, artificially produced UV-C light ray has become a primary method of sterilisation in hospitals, dental clinics, aeroplanes and places that requires a pristine environment. It is also used to sanitise the water that we drink daily.

  4. Ease of use

    The UV-C steriliser is very easy to use. Unlike traditional chemical sterilisers, the UV-C steriliser does not require you to spray it on all surface and physical wipe the surface with a cloth.

    With the UV-C steriliser, you can steriliser your home and belongings with just a tap. You can sterilise surfaces from as quick as 8 seconds to 1 hour, depending on the type of steriliser and surface area.

Disadvantages of using UV-C sterilizer 

  1. Blocked surfaces will not get disinfected

    Not all areas within the range of the UV-C steriliser will be disinfected. Any surfaces that the light is not directly falling on will not be sterilised. For example, if an object is blocking light rays from surfaces within the range of the steriliser, those surface will not be disinfected.

  2. Cannot be used on the skin

    UV-C light will cause skin irritation if you are too close or exposed to it for an extended period of time. If you want to disinfect your hand or skin, you have to use a sanitising wipe of hand sanitiser instead.
