What Is UV Light Sterilization?

Ultraviolet light sterilization (UV) is a potent way to disinfect surfaces and spaces within a variety of industries and for a variety of purposes. UV light sanitation can be used to disinfect water, air, food, surgical utensils, computers, toys, and a wide range of surfaces. At Vernick, we only use UV sanitation systems with a sufficient energy to effectively kill microorganisms. 

How Does It Kill Germs?

You may be wondering if UV light sterilization products actually work, and the answer is yes! UV light sterilization works by breaking down specific chemical structures within microbes, altering the structure of their DNA and RNA. This causes the microorganisms to die, as it renders them unable to reproduce and cause further infection. The UV sanitation systems from Vernick are highly effective at destroying viruses, bacteria, foodborne pathogens, natural microbes, molds, yeasts, and any number of dangerous microbes.
