UV Deep Clean System

Sanitise your rooms with UV light

Reopen your hotel with confidence, using the same germicidal ultraviolet cleaning process trusted by medical practioners for many decades, and rebuild your occupancy levels by guaranteeing deep cleaned guest rooms.

Simple. Safe. Clean.

How does UV light deep clean and is it scientifically proven?

Reassure your guests that you have enhanced your cleaning practices with ultraviolet light (UVC) deep cleaning. The ultraviolet light rays sanitise all exposed room surfaces and frequent touch points safely and quickly, removing bacteria and viruses. Historic research trials have proved that ultraviolet light kills bacteria and viruses, including coronaviruses and the SARS derivative. Tests on COVID-19 are currently in progress. Early findings and the scientific community agree that UVC will kill COVID-19 (See Page 3 citations).

A Safe Solution For Your Team

Whilst it has great cleaning abilities, UVC is not safe in large doses for humans, so the UV Deep Clean System comes with safety built in. Our door safety barrier keypad enables the system to be operated remotely and is designed to show clearly when cleaning is in progress. The system automatically turns off if the door is opened whilst cleaning is in progress.

FAQs

Is ultraviolet light safe?

Ultraviolet light comes in three categories of wavelength, UV-A, UV-B and UV-C.
UV light is generated by the sun, and UV-A and UV-B reach the surface of the earth as sunlight. All ultraviolet light can damage human tissue if we are overexposed to it, but light at the UV-C wavelength is more damaging. UV-C is usually prevented from reaching the earth’s surface by the ozone layer in the atmosphere, hence life on earth has not needed to developed a tolerance for it.
As such, use of UV-C light must be managed very carefully.

How does ultraviolet light kill coronaviruses?

Only ultraviolet light at UV-C wavelengths reliably kills bacteria and viruses.
This has been known since the end of the 19th century, and UV-C has been widely used as a disinfection protocol by medical practitioners and others since the 1960s.
Coronaviruses have a protective outer shell that UV-C light can break apart, causing the virus inside to break-down and become ineffective.

Does all UV-C kill viruses and bacteria?

UV light needs to be at the right wavelengths within the UV-C spectrum (254n/m).
It also needs to reach surfaces that viruses and/or bacteria are resting on, at the correct power levels and/or for long enough to neutralise them.

It is therefore important that UVC lamps emit the correct wavelengths, at the correct power levels (and for the correct durations) or they will not be effective.
UV-A and UV-B do not effectively kill viruses and bacteria.

What about COVID-19 specifically?

COVID-19, (or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 [SARS-CoV-2] specifically) is still very
new, so extensive testing has not yet occurred.
UVC light has been demonstrated to kill all previous coronaviruses (including the other iterations of SARS) and the following citations support the viability of UV-C when used against the new virus: –

Financial Times – May 2020
“The robot…emits light of wavelengths between 200 and 315 nanometres to decontaminate beds, doorknobs and other surfaces.
Two or three five-minute rounds of ultraviolet radiation leave pathogens too damaged to function…also shown to be 99.99 per cent effective in eliminating the coronavirus.”

University of California – Santa Barbara
“UV light shows a lot of promise: SSLEEC member company Seoul Semiconductor in early April reported
a 99.9% sterilization of coronavirus (COVID-19) in 30 seconds”.

International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA).
“All bacteria and viruses tested to date (many hundreds over the years, including other coronaviruses)
respond to UV disinfection”.

National Academies of Sciences Engineering Medicine
“Most UV sanitizers have not been tested against the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. But UVC light (has) been shown to destroy related coronaviruses, including the one that causes the disease MERS”.

How long does it take the VIVID UV Deep Cleaning System to disinfect a room?

It depends on the size and shape of the room and the type of virus present (please refer to VIVID’s Time required for the UV Deep Cleaning System by VIVID to sanitise a room, by size chart for further details). Most room spaces will be cleansed after ten to twenty minutes of Deep Cleaning UVC light exposure.
For hotel rooms, a single lamp cycle will need to be used to disinfect the bedroom and bathroom separately, so ten minutes for the bedroom and ten minutes for the bathroom, for example.

If UVC light is damaging to humans, how does the Deep Cleaning System operate safely?

Each UV Deep Cleaning System is supplied with a safety barrier that is placed within the door frame of the room that is
being cleaned.

The door barrier must be in place for the Deep Cleaning Lamp to function, and the lamp automatically switches off as soon as the barrier is removed.
The Deep Cleaning System is remotely switched on, and can only be switched on when the barrier is in place.

What is the recommended operational procedure for housekeeping teams?

The easy to fit safety door barrier is put in place.
The timer is set once the barrier is in place outside the room.

Staff can safely re-enter the room as soon as the time ends.
The room can be sealed with our UV Deep Clean Assurance stickers.

Summary of UVC light studies on Coronaviruses

This table summarises the results of studies that have been performed on Coronaviruses under ultraviolet light exposure, with the specific species indicated in each case. The D90 value indicates the ultraviolet dose for 90% inactivation.

Although there is a wide range of variation in the D90 values, this is typical of laboratory studies on ultraviolet susceptibility. The range of D90 values for coronaviruses is 7-241 J/m2 the mean of which is 67 J/m2, should adequately represent the ultraviolet susceptibility of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus.”

By using this exposure data, and comparing the UV light irradiance measurements from our UV disinfection lamps and systems, we can easily calculate the exposure times required to achieve a particular log reduction based at specified distances from the source.

Time required for the UV Deep Cleaning System by VIVID to sanitise a room, by size

(Based upon UV light falling on surfaces at an average angle of 45 degrees, and viruses having a required D90 dose (exposure) of 241 J/m2.
241 J/m2 is the maximum D90 dose requirement recorded for any historical coronavirus. The mean average dose for coronaviruses over time has been 67J/m2.
This suggests that the below durations are conservative and D90 values are likely to be achieved earlier and/or that doses will exceed a D90 dose.
