Signify has introduced its UV-C disinfection services for homes in India.
UV-C lighting is a chemical-free, residue-free and absorption-free method that can be used to disinfect the air, water and surfaces and all bacteria and viruses tested to date respond to UV-C radiation.
Commenting on the launch, Sumit Joshi, CEO and Managing Director Signify – South Asia, said “After receiving great feedback about our UV-C disinfection service from our professional users, we have now launched this service for homes in India, considering the relevance and increased demand of this method in the current pandemic. The service offers a tried and tested chemical-free and residue-free alternative to disinfecting your home after a COVID infection in the house.”
Unlike other conventional disinfection methods, UV-C disinfection does not leave any harmful chemical residues and hence can be safely used around electronics and indoor plants. It is also environmentally friendly, as it does not use any chemical substances.
UV-C is a well-established method of disinfection, as it breaks down the DNA or RNA of microorganisms including viruses and bacteria, rendering them harmless.
The effectiveness of Signify’s UV-C light sources in inactivating SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has been validated by Boston University.
The company offers a customized package for homes, depending on the size of the house (BHK) and uses a scientific methodology to determine the unique dosage needed to disinfect all corners of the house.
The disinfection process is carried out by a team of trained and certified service professionals equipped with UV-C compliant PPE kits, who then use specially designed UV-C lighting products to disinfect the premises.
This service can be used to disinfect all areas of the house such as the dining, kitchen and washroom areas including all furniture and household items such as refrigerators, chairs, sofa’s, TV’s, printers, etc.
The company launched its UV-C disinfection services for professional customers like offices, hotels and retail shops earlier this year and has now extended the same to homes.
