Mobile UV Disinfection Units

As the world hunkers down in their homes in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19, individuals responsible for a business or commercial building are taking stringent precautions keeping themselves and their building disease free. This includes self-quarantining, disinfecting commonly touched surfaces and maintaining a healthy and clean lifestyle. As such, there is already a lack of hand sanitizers, rubbing alcohol, and other disinfectants. With insufficient availability of man-made sanitizers, many have shifted to Puro™’s UV light technology disinfectant, powered by Violet Defense™ technology.

Puro’s broad-spectrum UV light™ light technology eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria, fungi and viruses on surfaces. Any facility ranging from healthcare to childcare can benefit from UV-C lighting. The options are endless. Mobile UV disinfection is one option available for you to use in germicidal UV. We suggest you weigh the following considerations before launching any new systems:

  • Disinfecting time – How long does it take to properly disinfect? The amount of time the product must remain wet on the surface before disinfection is achieved is called contact time. Contact time will vary depending on the place and environment.
  • Labor – Do you have the people and support to help you move and operate the UV disinfection products?
  • Space – When faced with the question of having to calculate how much space you need to have an efficiently well-lit space through LED lighting it can become a bit more complicated.

Below is a list of the benefits and drawbacks of mobile UV disinfection devices, the best locations for their use and listing products for sale.
