Generally, we have different machines for Air sterilization and Surface sterilization but with UV room sterilizers we can treat both, the air and the surface of rooms at the same time. Hospitals, especially in-patient rooms are exceedingly infected; the doctors, other staff, visitors and new patients are at a high risk of contracting new infections or illnesses caused by contagious pathogens.
Disinfection of hospital rooms is generally limited to the use of disinfecting solutions used for cleaning the surfaces of rooms but disinfection of air and other objects in the room like the beds, pillows and other furniture is not taken care of.
Ultraviolet Sterilizers are required in any place that is in need of germicidal irradiation which includes laboratories, hotel rooms, patients’ rooms in hospitals etc., but when mounted to the wall in fixed positions these machines have quite a few drawbacks. Most importantly, Ultraviolet rays are harmful to the eyes and skin when in direct contact and therefore highly risky to place it permanently in rooms that will be occupied by people. Chances are that the machine could be left switched on by error which would be fatal to the health of anyone entering these rooms. If the area of the room is huge there is a high possibility that a few corners may be left unaffected by the sterilization process of the UV rays from a fixed spot.
These drawbacks can be solved by using a portable UV Air sterilizers which are compact and lightweight. There is no waste generated and also no additional chemicals are necessary to complete the sterilization process. The sterilizer unit is on wheels, therefore, can be moved to any corner of the room to guarantee sterilization covering the entire area and all the objects placed in the room. It is easy to operate and requires very little training; the operator can also take necessary measures to avoid the possibility of people coming in direct contact with the dangerous UV rays emitted by the machine. The UV lamps replacement can be done effortlessly compared to a fixed unit.
Of Course with the portable UV Room Sterilizers there are a set of rules and instructions that need to be followed to ensure safety:
- Check the room to clear it of people, animals, and plants.
- An operator must wear UV protective glasses but should move out of the room as soon as the timer is switched on.
