There are many cleaning and disinfection solutions on the market today, like sprays and wipes, but certain chemicals inside those solutions, cause serious degradation of your surfaces, objects and valuable equipment, causing them to break down, become corroded, discoloured and ultimately lead to malfunction unable to repair.
Let´s take a look at chemicals that are most damaging to materials:
Also chemicals are harmful to human health.
Overuse and misuse of disinfectant chemicals has not been widely reported.
Well-intentioned people, trying to stop the spread of COVID-19, have unintentionally exposed themselves and others to harmful chemicals. We are being exposed to these chemicals in volumes and frequencies that were previously unheard of.
Disinfecting chemicals were never intended to be used like this. Disinfectants are classified by the EPA with insecticides. They are produced to kill microbes; they are not cleaning agents. Experts worry about the consequences.
A CDC study of the number of reports to poison centers regarding disinfectants and cleaners reveals a significant increase in total exposure from 2019 to 2020.
Exposure by inhalation has increased the most, leading to respiratory problems. There has been a 108.79% increase from 2019 to 2020. Disinfectants are being sprayed on porous surfaces such as curtains, carpets, and upholstered furniture, which then emit fumes for hours, or even days.
Incidents of dermal problems caused by chemical disinfectants have increased by 57.24%. Our skin is our largest organ and is vulnerable to chemical exposure.
Experts also warn of potential neurological and immunological problems.
Children are most at risk due to more frequent touching and “mouthing” of objects. Experts worry that exposure to chemical disinfectants could be detrimental to developing immune and reproductive systems.
Chemical disinfectants had known harmful side effects before the pandemic: general toxicity, dermatological ailments, eye damage, and respiratory disease are established problems.
When these disinfectants were used for occasional accidents, spills, and infestations, they were a reasonable risk. When used to wipe down high touch, non-porous surfaces they also make sense. One can only imagine, however, the long-term effects we will see down the line from their current overuse and misuse.
Unfortunately, health issues caused by exposure to chemical disinfectants will likely outlast the pandemic.
The pandemic, quarantines, and the presidential election have dominated the headlines. Safety and health experts are aware. And some innovators and entrepreneurs have worked hard to find safer and healthier alternatives.
Besides all the disadvantages of the chemicals, wet disinfection takes time and frequent supply of this chemicals cost you money in the long run.
UV-C light disinfection is simple and dry compared to processes like washing, bleaching, that leavee moisture and residue behind.
UV-C disinfection works effectively on the surface as well as on liquids. Applying UV-C light does not leave residuals or disinfection by-products like chemicals do. It will be effective in food manufacturing facilities to disinfect like a conveyor belt, which is difficult to clean through the work time.
UV-C light disinfection is a chemical-free process, non-toxic, environment friendly, and easy to handle
UV-C disinfection devices have a low maintenance cost, are simple to operate, along with lower operating cost.
The operation reliability of UV-C disinfection is high as compared to chemicals and also human friendly.
