Why care homes should install antimicrobial lighting

Antimicrobial LED light

Vyv antimicrobial LED light uses a wavelength which specifically attacks pathogens and creates an inhospitable environment for microbes to grow on any surface. This means that nursing homes and care homes are able to combat viruses*, bacteria, fungi, yeast, mould and mildew, working continuously 24/7 to reduce the bioburden and create a cleaner, healthier environment.

Antimicrobial lighting decreases the presence of pathogens permanently and puts the providers  back in control  of the bioburden.

Vyv antimicrobial light is not ultraviolet (UV) light, which is inherently dangerous because it destroys the cellular structure in all living things (including people). Vyv’s technology uses a selected light wavelength that meets the international standard for continuous and unrestricted use around humans (IEC 62471, 2019).

There are countless advantages to antimicrobial light as an ideal complement to traditional ways of cleaning, as well as using it as part of a framework aimed at reducing the use of antibiotics and decreasing the colonisation of antibiotic- or multi-drug-resistant organisms.

The installation of antimicrobial lighting throughout the care home environment means that pathogens are aggressively and continuously knocked down at their source and this should help to decrease the need for antibiotics among the residents..Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.
