UVC LLC Founder honored with “Spotlight Award”

UVC LLC is excited to announce that Douglas County awarded Founder and CEO Brad Hollander a 2020 Spotlight Award for his technological innovation and generosity. Hollander developed and maintains an “Ozone Generator” that is currently being used by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. This chemical-free disinfection technology is enhancing the department’s ability to disinfect vehicles and the jail, keeping staff healthy and limiting exposure to biohazards. The Sheriff’s Office can now sanitize high-volume work areas to better keep deputies, inmates and members of the public as safe and healthy as possible.

The ABC local news affiliate serving Reno, NV and its surrounding areas recently featured UVC LLC Founder and CopperDisinfector Inventor, Brad Hollander, in a segment for their 11:00pm news. Evening Anchor Noah Bond with KOLO-TV visited the Carson Valley Swim Center, where Hollander installed CopperDisinfector on several high-touch surfaces free of charge as part of his UV Copper Project. The initiative provides financial assistance through community partnerships, crowdfunding and other means for certain businesses looking to access this green, chemical-free, EPA-approved technology. Starting at just $20 per door handle, Bond highlighted CopperDisinfector’s low cost, while the swim center’s director spoke about the importance of this added layer of protection for the hundreds of people who use the facility daily. “Here in Minden and Gardnerville, all of Douglas County and especially this facility, we’ve always been open to trying new things, especially if it’s going to be able to improve our function of the facility,” said Carson Valley Swim Center Director, Shannon Harris. “When an organism falls on the copper surface the natural copper reaction causes that germ to explode and die on contact,” said Hollander.

Does UV light destroy COVID-19?

Just as cases of the Omicron variant have started to decline here in the U.S. and around the world, now a different version of this same variant is causing concern among health experts. BA.2, or Stealth Omicron, is still a bit of a mystery and so far, health professionals aren’t sounding the alarm. However, it’s becoming more and more apparent that the coronavirus, and its current and future variants, will be part of our daily lives for years to come. UV light is quickly becoming a go-to line of defense for hospitals, businesses, public transportation and even private homes. When used correctly in an HVAC system, UVC germicidal lights can can destroy up to 99.9% of microorganisms in the air you breathe, and those living on HVAC air ducts and evaporator coils. More recently, UVC 254 nm light has been proven to effectively and safely inactivate airborne human coronaviruses like Covid 19 and its variants. With demand soaring for UV light devices, a word of caution for consumers. Many products on the market are made overseas with little oversight, and little to no testing required. When something as vital as health and safety are on the line, it is vital you research and purchase products from a reputable company. As the leading developer and manufacturer of UVC germicidal disinfection lamps for air and touch surfaces since 1976, we are poised and ready to provide safe, tested and affordable products to help you protect your home or business. Contact us for more information on how we can help protect your home or business.

Five Reasons Your HVAC Needs UVC Germicidal Lights

COVID-19 and the Omicron pandemic sounded the alarm about airborne viruses and bacteria. Health experts are already saying the next pandemic could be even more lethal. Now, as the Delta and Omicron variants cause COVID cases to surge to new levels across the country, there is a renewed focus on keeping people safe, especially those in particularly vulnerable populations. There is also renewed attention surrounding disinfection methods like UVC 254 nm germicidal disinfection lights. As UVC LLC’s founder, and inventor of “UVC for HVAC”, I know firsthand this is a proven layer of protection for businesses, hospitals, community organizations and consumers looking to fend off a wide array of airborne illnesses. We’ve been the leading developer and manufacturer of UVC germicidal disinfection lamps, systems for HVAC and touch surfaces, since 1976. But do UV lights for HVAC really work? The simple answer— yes. When used correctly in an HVAC system, UVC germicidal lights can kill 99.9% of microorganisms in the air you breathe, and those living on HVAC air ducts and evaporator coils. Here are five reasons your HVAC needs our UV Blue SHO ™ germicidal disinfection system. The air you breathe is making you sick It is this fact that guides our work at UVC LLC. The American Lung Association is clear that bacteria and viruses that travel through the air “spread colds, influenza, tuberculosis and other infectious agents” when inhaled. Think of when someone sneezes or coughs. Those droplets are filled with viruses and bacteria that scatter in the air and end up on a multitude of everyday touch surfaces. Crowded conditions, poor air circulation and poorly-maintained building ventilation systems can all help bacteria, mold and viruses thrive. UV lights have a history of germ-killing power There are several types of UV light, but UVC 254 nm light is most effective and EPA approved to kill germs. UVC 254 nm has been used to disinfect surfaces, air, and liquids and it’s been around since the 1940s. Hospitals started using it to control airborne infectious diseases and took a renewed interest during the 1990s. I developed the first UVC system in 1976 for modern HVAC systems to combat airborne diseases and drug-resistant “superbugs.” More recently, UVC 254 nm light has been proven to effectively and safely inactivate airborne human coronaviruses like Covid 19 and its variants. Our UV Blue SHO Technology has the highest killing power at the lowest cost

CES 2022 Puts More Eyes on Germicidal Disinfection Technology

What consumers should know about this growing field Despite surging Covid-19 cases across the country fueled by the Omicron variant, the “most influential tech event in the world,” CES 2022, kicked off Wednesday in Las Vegas. With both an in-person and virtual option, and a shortened schedule due to the ongoing pandemic, it is no surprise that disinfection technology is getting a lot of eyes this year. From humanoid robots to UV air purifiers for bus and coach cabins, technologies to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria, like our UV Blue SHO for HVAC and CopperDisinfector, are in high demand. So what is germicidal disinfection technology? And how can you, as a consumer, navigate it safely? To start, this type of technology has been a proven way to kill germs both in the air, and on touch surfaces, since the 1900s. Unlike chemical disinfectants, products like our UVC 254nm germicidal lights are green, EPA-approved and powerful enough to kill the germs that cause flus, colds and other viruses, including COVID-19 and its variants. It is most widely used in HVAC systems, water treatment systems, labs, hospitals, and isolation rooms, but can also benefit schools, community centers, or even the average consumer when installed correctly. Buyer Beware! There are a lot of companies working to cash in on the UV and disinfection craze. False advertising is a real problem, as many products are made in foreign countries with little to no oversight, then resold or rebranded here in the US. UVC LLC helped develop the testing protocols for this industry more than 25 years ago and since we’ve been developing and manufacturing our products in-house, here in the US since 1976, rest assured you’re getting the highest quality at the lowest price.

Why CopperDisinfector™ ANTIMICROBIAL Copper?

FOUR ways this PROVEN ancient metal offers the ultimate modern-day touch surface protection The next time you go to open a door, steady yourself on the stairs, or frequent your favorite restaurant you may notice copper as the first layer of protection to Destroy bacteria on the surfaces you touch. Researchers and the EPA are confirming copper’s ability to Destroy bacteria in as little as one minute, including COVID-19 and its variants . Microbes can live for days on everyday touch surfaces, including hospital grade stainless steel. Destroying bacterias like Covid-19 has taken on new importance as businesses, restaurants, schools and even private consumers work to keep their communities and their families safe. So why choose CopperDisinfector™ EPA-approved antimicrobial copper? Tested and proven by the EPA and independent testing labs. For one, it’s a chemical-free, green, 24/7 disinfection technology that lasts for years without the need for reapplication. Here are a few more reasons… It’s been used as a safe disinfecting agent for centuries Research shows ancient civilizations started using copper between 7,000-10,000 years ago. As far back as 1,600 B.C. Now, modern-day researchers are calling for a copper resurgence to help kill more than 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on touch surfaces, including COVID-19. In this Stat News article from September of 2020, Michael Schmidt, a professor of microbiology and immunology at the Medical University of South Carolina said, “Copper is the fastest thing that can kill anything.” Cities and states are taking notice. Lawmakers in New York are currently considering legislation to “study the use of solid antimicrobial materials for touch surfaces in the construction of public buildings.” The Los Angeles Kings installed dumbbells and attachments made with antimicrobial copper surfaces in their strength and training facility as a way to, “further minimize the exposure of bacteria in our training spaces…” Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport installed more than 50 water bottle filling stations made from antimicrobial copper back in 2014 and Pullman Regional Hospital in Washington State gave high-use areas a “healthy makeover” with antimicrobial copper. CopperDisinfector™ is EPA-registered, chemical-free, green technology with 99.9% killing power Copper has natural, non-chemical, antimicrobial properties. In February of this year, the EPA registered antimicrobial copper (like CopperDisinfector) for residual use against coronavirus, making copper the first product with residual claims against viruses to be registered for use nationwide. CopperDisinfector is unique in how it destroys germs , and studies show it kills greater than 99% of bacteria within two hours. Provides long-lasting, 24/7, chemical-free protection Once installed, CopperDisinfector’s natural copper antimicrobial properties go to work 24/7, killing germs and bacteria simply by being there. No need to reapply and the product can last for years on a variety of touch surfaces. Even in a green, oxidized state, the disinfection properties remain, although it’s important to still clean the surface regularly. Easy to install with minimal maintenance Our patent-pending CopperDisinfector™ is independently tested and approved by the EPA. It takes just minutes to install and can be used on a variety of touch surfaces. While you do have to initially activate the copper surface, it merely requires regular cleaning and disinfection to continue its germ-killing power.

More than 1.1 million Americans have died from COVID over the past 3 years, and experts say the official numbers are likely underestimated due to errors in death certificate reporting
