Fight Allergies in Clearwater with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was first used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sanitize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Clearwater home’s environment healthier.

A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and enhance the air quality in your Clearwater home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens within 10 seconds of contact.

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

Our Experts can recommend the system that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Midway Services is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are placed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to destroy the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

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

Two studies have shown how effective UV light is in battling germs and mold.

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

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold concentration 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 practical against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you follow some precautions.

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

The type of light used in a germicidal system is stronger, so it’s important to let Midway Services take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or let bare skin be exposed to it.
