Keep microbes out of your premises with UV-C waves

The cleaning and sanitising commercial kitchens are a nightmare at the best of times; they can require many pricey products. Well, here’s one to add to your resources: UV light; more specifically, UV-C, which is one of three types of radiation emitted as light waves.

UV-A and UV-B have been linked to conditions such as skin cancer, and medical professionals have warned us to protect ourselves by using sunblock or sunscreen. However, UV-C light is not absorbed by our skin and can be harnessed as a disinfectant for kitchens using pork products that can cause microbes to spread if not handled correctly.

How it works

UV-C infiltrates potentially disease-causing microorganisms, disrupting their DNA structure. This action prevents them from multiplying. UV-C is effective against bacteria, moulds and parasites. In addition, no other types of chemical cleaners need to be used.

The light wave can kill microbes within seconds. The PHT Group claims that an area of 0.5m2 can be cleared in just over a minute of exposure to UV-C. Interestingly, the sterilisation elements of UV light were recognised 130 years ago. UV-C is a fast, effective and proven sterilisation method. Make sure it becomes part of your cleaning regimen.

This is excellent news for pork meat suppliers and restaurant owners since UV-C can be used in an industrial and commercial setting. However, please don’t forget basic meat-handling rules such as never cross-contaminating raw and cooked pork as well as washing your hands regularly.
