Fight Allergies in Fort Worth with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was initially used to treat tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to clean hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Fort Worth home’s environment purer.

A UV lamp can decontaminate HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Fort Worth home. It can wipe out mold, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms within 10 seconds of contact.

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

Our Experts can advise you on the system that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Calverley Service Experts is supported 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 run constantly. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to destroy the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as quickly as 10 seconds, this potent light stops 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 eliminate 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold amounts in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.

A germicidal system can also neutralize smells and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not effective against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you follow a couple of preventive measures.

The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can see. It’s behind causing painful sunburns. Ongoing overexposure can cause wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more concentrated, so it’s important to let Calverley Service Experts handle installation and maintenance. You should never look straight into the light or let bare skin touch it.
