How to Kill Airborne Viruses Like COVID-19

by | May 20, 2021 | disinfectant

This time last year, panic buyers were hoarding all of the disinfectant.

Big companies like Lysol and Clorox were out of stock for months–seemingly never able to keep their products on the shelves.

At the time, we didn’t know too much about the effectiveness of traditional disinfectant on COVID-19, nor did we really stop to think about whether it could even be transmitted via surfaces.

Regardless, those of us who were lucky enough to have disinfectant on hand used it religiously–constantly wiping down door knobs, high-touch areas, and even our groceries.

What we know now about COVID-19

Now that a year has passed and we’ve all learned more about COVID, the CDC has come to announce that panic-spraying all surfaces is unnecessary unless there has been known coronavirus exposure.

They’ve even stated that just plain old soap and water will suffice to perform your day-to-day cleaning. Surface disinfectant is only needed in indoor settings like schools, hospitals, and businesses where COVID cases have either been suspected or confirmed in the past 24 hours.

The reason for this change in guidance stems from evidence showing that the virus is mainly transmitted via airborne particles rather than touching contaminated surfaces. That being said, the most efficient way to keep your school, business, or hospital safe from the coronavirus is by disinfecting the air.

How to kill airborne viruses

Stop with the spray. Harmful chemicals like those found in Clorox or Lysol are doing next to nothing to fight an airborne virus like COVID.

The real key to killing this virus is by disinfecting the air.

Fortunately, it’s made possible with UVC disinfectants like Spiro-Max. This state-of-the-art technology can kill up to 99.9% of viruses and bacteria both airborne AND on surfaces within a 2,500 – 750,000 cubic square-foot area. It’s also easy to install and runs continuously, cleaning and purifying your air 24/7. 

This type of disinfectant is the ultimate, proven solution for bacteria mitigation and airborne viruses. UVC lamps are covered, non-toxic, and safe to use in occupied rooms. Rather than use harmful chemicals, Spiro-Max relies on the natural disinfecting powers of ultraviolet light to purify air as it circles through your HVAC system.
