A Slight Smell of Bleach is a Small Price to Pay for Clean Air Everyday.
In response to ongoing Global Covid-19 situation, in January 2021 our electricians, Ask Mr. Jones installed a Sterillo Uno Air Sterilizer in the shared kitchen at The Regent Offices and Business Centre. We have been using Sterillo Units in the Lavatories since 2013 when the offices opened, and they have proved one of my best decisions. I homed in on the kitchen area however as this is where historically people tended to congregate. Although it is not a 'fully functioning kitchen', smells from a microwave and bits left in the sink can linger causing nasty niffs if not immediately cleaned. And with all the best will in the world, surfaces can become unhygienic in a blink of an eye. Especially as there is little air circulation in this room, then something needed to be done. Knowing that the Sterillo Uno is proven to kill germs lingering in the air, as well as deal with odour-control, it was the perfect solution for the environment where nasty bacteria need to be controlled. Using proven room sanitizing technology (UV Light), the Sterillo Uno is a silent killer, it kills germs and harmful bacteria in the air, eradicating nasty smells and malodours in the process without any noise or fuss. Gone are any sorts of germs, causes of mould build-up and bacteria that can be transmitted in the air. The product has been in the Kitchenette for a year now and has proved its worth. Due to the 'UV Light' technology there is a bleach smell in the air, however in my opinion it is a small price clean air!
You may be wondering whether the unit really does kill viruses?
Does the Sterillo UNO kill viruses? In laboratory tests carried out by PHE (Public Health England)*, the Sterillo removed over 99% of one of the germs tested. Germicidal UVC light (254.7nm) is proven to stop all viruses (including Coronavirus’) replicating and therefore spreading. By destroying the section of DNA responsible of its replication – the virus is no longer able to infect or spread. The Sterillo concept is truly innovative and unique thanks to patented technology and affords you a clean space with germs and bacteria gone.
I hope that our experience helps you in your choices going forward beyond Covid19 to reduce nasty niffs and wave goodbye to lingering bacteria and viruses.
We're still - Happy Officing!
