We all know that exposure to UV germicidal lamps can cause serious damage to the skin and eyes. The following is a safe guide on how to use our UV disinfection lamps.
Ourportable UV sterilization lamp is mostly used in cabinets, wardrobes, bathrooms and other small areas because its effective range is less than 2 square meters. These lights usually produce a lot of ozone (reactive oxygen), which permeates everything and smells a little like bleach.
We designed it with delay switch, when you press the switch, it doesn’t light right away. Don’t worry, it’s not broken, just lights up after 30 seconds for safe, this is the time we leave for you to leave away.
So turn on the lights and leave immediately. And make sure no people or pets are allowed in the room while the lights are on.
It will automatically shuts down after 30 minutes, which is also designed to avoid physical discomfort from contact with it.
Although the light can be turned off automatically after 30 minutes, I recommend that you could continue to stay out of the room for 30 minutes or more to keep the ozone levels down. The smell of ozone can last for days at low levels.
Packing well to ensure better use next time. It is very important that the lamps and light boxes are clearly marked to indicate that it is dangerous and cannot be touched or viewed. Store it in a safe place where the kids can’t find it.
The ability of a room to be sanitized depends on the volume of the room, the blockage between light and surfaces, the power of the lights and the time of day. These lights are not guaranteed to prevent infection, but they can be useful in some cases. Like using for disinfection of masks.
If you do expose yourself to the skin long enough, you will develop an irritating rash or a burn like a sunburn. Unless it’s very serious, treat it as a sunburn.
If someone looks at the light for long time without protecting their eyes, the surface of the eye can be damaged, resulting in the arc flash, arc eye, arc welder’s flash or keratoconjunctivitis that electric welders often experience. After a long time, you will feel like sand in your eyes. It will heal in a few days, but if in doubt, check with doctor promptly and explain what happened.
Wearing glasses may provide some protection to your eyes, but should not be a reason to expose yourself to UV light.
The only thing these UV lights need to maintain is the occasional wipe off greasy fingerprints with alcohol. When used intermittently, they should last 10,000 hours.
