Benefits of UV Germicidal Lights

Among the various pollutants that can enter your home’s ventilation system—dust, dirt, dander, pollen, sawdust, hair—the one that causes the most worries is microbacteria. Nobody wants mold or mildew growing inside their home, and if these contaminants take root in your ductwork, they can have a detrimental impact on your indoor air quality.

There are a number of different methods for mold remediation. Many involve cleaners and sanitizers to kill the microbacteria. However, one method that numerous indoor air quality specialists favor is the use of UV germicidal lights. At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air often installs these devices to help our clients remove mold and mildew from their ductwork, and we believe strongly in UV germicidal light as a solution for microbacteria growth in ventilation systems. We’ll explain why. Call our indoor air quality experts today to ask about how we can improve your air and provide other heating services in Salt Lake City, UT.

What UV germicidal lights can do for you

Laboratories have used ultraviolet light for many years to sterilize equipment. The wavelengths of these lights cause damage to the cellular structure of microbacteria, destroying them and preventing them from returning. Now this technology has entered the home, mounted along ductwork to perform the same job eliminating bacteria.

The main advantage of UV germicidal lights is that the leave no residue in the ducts and do not harm them. Unlike sanitizers, which can affect your air after they are used, UV lights leave no trace behind of their work and pose no health risk to anyone in your house.

UV lights also provide comprehensive mold remediation; a whole-house system installed will keep mold completely out of your ducts because the lights will catch microorganisms as they move along the ductwork. Since the light destroys them at the cellular level, the microbacteria will have no chance to reproduce.

These lights are small and easy to maintain. Professionals can quickly match them up to your HVAC system and install them so they work for many years. You will still need occasional checks to make sure that none of the lights has shut down.

Find out if UV lights are right for your home

Spotting mold growing around the registers of your vents is usually a warning that you need mold remediation. Indoor air quality experts can determine if the job calls for installing UV germicidal lights, and provide you with the installation that will start you on the way to mold-free ducts.

At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air takes pride in our indoor air quality and heating services in Salt Lake City, UT. If you suspect you need mold remediation, call us today.

During this very unusual time, we have put a plan in place to do our part to help keep our community safe. First and foremost, we are going to stay CALM, PATIENT, KIND, and POSITIVE!

There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.

Because we have a direct impact on the indoor environment, here are practical steps we are going to take to keep people safe:

  • Wash our hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water
  • Cover our nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
  • Wash our uniforms every day including cleaning our belts
  • Stay home if we are feeling sick
  • Offer a warm smile and friendly greeting instead of a handshake
  • Wear shoe covers and latex gloves in homes and businesses
  • Wipe down surfaces and equipment touched in a client’s home with disinfectant wipes
  • Wipe down door handles, steering wheels, gear shift lever every day
  • Wipe down pens, clipboards, tablets, cell phones, and anything else passes between techs and clients.
  • We have masks on each truck and will wear them at client’s discretion (Currently the CDC does not recommend that people wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19)
  • We are complying with all recommendations and guidelines from state agencies and will be proactive in our efforts to see that our team members and clients are protected.

As the situation unfolds, we will take each day one at a time and ensure we are being smart, supportive, and helping all those we can in our community.

Thank you for your continued support!
