Can UV light kill bacteria?

A study published in the Journal of Infection Control shows that ultraviolet disinfection technology eliminates up to 97.7% of pathogens in the operating room. Ultra-violet light in the UV-C wavelength range (200 to 270 nano-meters) has microbiocidal properties against multiple healthcare associated pathogens.

The last thing anyone wants to experience is getting some sort of infection in a healthcare environment, such as an operating room, waiting room or hospital, while they’re already seeking medical care. This type of infection is known as a healthcare-associated infection (HAI), happens frequently. Certain factors can raise someone’s risk of developing an HAI; these include catheters, having surgery, getting a shot, and being in a healthcare setting that has not been properly disinfected. Overuse of antibiotics can play a part, as well as sick healthcare workers.

Some hospitals have already begun using UVC machines in addition to standard chemical disinfection to kill potentially dangerous bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

UV light definitely has its advantages, as it eliminates human error and other common pitfalls of chemical disinfecting agents. It also affects multiple surfaces within seconds and has a configuration that allows it to reach all sides of a piece of equipment. With the use of high-efficiency UV Lamp systems, it is now possible for In-Duct, Coil Mount and Stand-Alone systems to destroy high levels of airborne and surface bio-contaminants

The benefits of Pure Tea Tree Oil | Indoor Air Quality

Gelair™ delivers the benefits of Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil to improve your indoor air quality and environment using a range of healthy living technology. Gelair’s small team of dedicated professionals are constantly working to provide innovative solutions to improve the quality and health of our indoor environment.

Gelair™ was established on a tea tree plantation in northern New South Wales in 1998. After gaining an understanding of tea tree’s health benefits, the proprietors developed a unique biodegradable gel containing tea tree oil for placement in air conditioning units. When an air conditioning unit operates normally, the gel vaporises releasing the tea tree oil to treat the air and improve its quality. Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil is a natural essential oil distilled from plantations of Melaleuca alternifolia. The therapeutic properties of Melaleuca alternifolia have been recognised by Australia’s indigenous people. As a natural antiseptic Australian Tea Tree Oil has demonstrated antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral capabilities which Gelair™ uses to combat and prevent a range of mould, bacteria, virus and fungus types. Australian Tea Tree Oil has proven efficacy in the control of Golden Staph (Staphylococcus aureus) for both Methicillin (MRSA) and Vancomycin (VRSA) resistant strains.

Gelair™ products are the simplest way to control mould and bacteria that infest your air conditioner and the room it services.

Gelair™ has delivered solutions to mould and bacteria build up in buildings for over two decades, using Australian grown and distilled Tea Tree Oil as the main ingredient in all Gelair™ products. Only the finest Tea Tree Oil is used in Gelair™ products, with every batch meticulously tested for quality. Australian Tea Tree Oil is a powerful broad spectrum anti-microbial and anti-fungal agent, killing mould and bacteria (including Legionella) and viruses.

Gelair™ products can be used anywhere to improve indoor air quality, even in your car, however the healthy living Gelair™ technology means that the benefits of Tea Tree Oil can be delivered to even hard to reach areas such as air conditioning systems.
