Viruses are of all times. From harmless viral infections that hardly affect you to viruses that cause an epidemic. Fear of infection results in flight behaviour. This reduces productivity, increases absenteeism due to stress and causes long-term disruption of social life. All unnatural conditions for us humans as a species. Viruscleaning believes in freedom. Freedom is often described as breathing space. And that is exactly what we want to give you. Our range of products is therefore designed to give you freedom again. Freedom in an (almost) virus-free environment. Take away the fear of your visitors, customers, clients and patients. This will make both you and them feel better. And that has an impact on all aspects of living and working. Whether it's cleaning rooms or ensuring virus prevention. Success depends on the feeling you leave behind. What you can offer them: Breathing space...
Viruscleaning will be in the Holland Pavilion at this week's Hannover Messe, Europe's largest digital trade fair. More than 2000 exhibitors and thousands of visitors from all over the world meet at this Industry Fair. We would like to invite you to visit our digital exhibition. For this, we offer you free admission. With this link you can request an eTicket worth € 19,95. We look forward to seeing you!
UVC radiation is a proven disinfectant for air, surfaces, objects and water. More and more research shows that UVC light is capable of disinfecting the coronavirus quickly and adequately. Artificial UVC light is currently already being used to disinfect surfaces and instruments in hospitals, for example. Recent studies indicate that far-UVC radiation with a short wavelength (about 222 nanometres) does not penetrate the top layer of skin, while the energy-rich UVC light does deactivate the microscopic coronaviruses by destroying the genetic material in the viruses. All Viruscleaning devices use UVC with LED for cleaning and disinfecting rooms, surfaces and objects. LED is the light of the future. Most LED lamps still in use are so-called quartz or mercury lamps, the production of which has been banned since 2015 due to the presence of mercury. LEDs, on the other hand, have many advantages: more than 40,000 burning hours (quartz lamp: 3,000 hours), very little loss of capacity, energy-efficient, compact and flexible in use, less vulnerable and durable.
A virus is not alive. It cannot move by itself. It needs a carrier in order to move. The coronavirus floats in the air, as it were. An aerosol is an airborne particle of moisture (a particle of dust or a drop of moisture). An average person breathes in and out about 24,000 times a day. Estimates range from 20 million to several billion dust particles per cubic metre.
All aerosols and droplets are trapped in a gas cloud, which determines how the particles move and disperse in the first few seconds after being emitted. The gas cloud holds the ejected droplets together and moves forward through the room, carrying the droplets with it. These aerosols can therefore contain viruses. They can be found in the air, but also on surfaces.
To counteract the aerosols containing viruses in rooms, ventilation is the common way. Ventilation is the 24-hour-a-day replacement of indoor air with fresh outdoor air. Natural ventilation requires a draught. In most rooms this is not feasible or desirable. The alternative is then mechanical ventilation. But even then, many ventilation systems and air conditioning ducts can contain viruses and spread them. The VIRUSCLEANING devices, based on the virus-killing UVC, can be used independently in all possible rooms. The PURE BREEZE, for example, ventilates 1,000 litres per hour. We recommend a ventilation rate of four to five times the volume (in m3) of a room. For a room of 250 m3 the entire air can be ventilated four times. The quick calculator understands: within fifteen minutes to an hour, the entire room is cleaned of all possible viruses, bacteria and other pathogens. The HEPA filter in the device filters almost 100% of all aerosols in the room, after which UVC (safely built-in) renders the virus harmless.
