Dear Microbes, You Don’t Stand a Chance.
Cooper Lighting Solutions’ NEW germicidal UV disinfecting solutions take the guesswork out of disinfecting, getting the job done quickly and effectively.
Phones, desks, and computer keyboards are germ magnets, according to a study by University of Arizona microbiologist Charles Gerba, PhD. Most of these feature hard-to-reach crevices and their cleanliness is usually up to the individual, not the cleaning staff. Influencing someone to upgrade their cleaning habits may prove difficult so, instead, try germicidal UV.
"It's prudent to assume virtually any surface in a public restroom carries germs," says Craig Conover, MD, MPH, medical director of the Illinois Department of Public Health. Did you know that the main risk of infection comes not from sitting on the toilet, but from touching the seat, stall door, or sink? Tackle the disinfection of these surfaces with germicidal UV and restore the cleanliness of the space in seconds.
Raw foods and food waste can leave surfaces and handling instruments exposed to a broad range of bacteria including Salmonella, Shigella, and Campylobacte, which can be passed around unknowingly amongst staff and visitors. Enter germicidal UV – kill these and many other germs, PLUS mold and fungi, in one fell swoop, saving you time and money.
Healthcare facilities have strict cleanliness requirements to maintain a safe environment for treating patients. In high traffic areas, there is not always time to thoroughly clean every surface while keeping up with the flow of patients. With the power of Germicidal UV, these spaces can be disinfected quickly and effectively with minimal down time, making GUV an ideal tool to supplement traditional cleaning measures.
Schools include a number of high-traffic areas where pathogens can live and multiply. Taking steps to disinfect areas such as classrooms, bathrooms, locker rooms, and hallways is key to students’ ability to return to in-person education. Using Germicidal UV technology is an easy and effective way to clean these spaces and help get students back in school.
Memorable guest experiences start (and end) with “sparkling clean.” Cleanliness is essential and has a direct effect on attracting new and return visitors. In an environment where staff is consistently pressed for time, Germicidal UV becomes the must-have addition to your cleaning checklist. It can be used to eliminate a wide list of viruses, bacteria, fungi, mold, and more.
Retail environments present high risk for inadvertently sharing unwanted microbes. It is challenging to effectively manage cleaning and disinfection of these surfaces…until now! With germicidal UV, high-touch items like carts and baskets can eliminate viruses and bacteria in seconds. Disinfecting through our technology is effective, consistent and affordable.
“Take me out to the ballgame”. Everyone knows the song. Sporting events are an iconic part of life, but present a distinct challenge in this new world of health awareness. Areas ranging from locker rooms to box seats present unique challenges for cleaning and disinfection. Germicidal UV provides an effective and consistent approach to disinfecting these areas, easing the strain on cleaning staff.
