protected from epidemics!
To protect the animals in our care , PetAirapy has led the way in cleaning or sanitizing the air and surfaces with a number of upper air systems, as well as HVAC systems that clear away germs, bacteria and viruses such as Distemper, MRSA, Canine Parvovirus, and so many more. Within minutes, our building and other areas of concern have been sanitized, disinfected and made safe for you and the animals.
HOW UVGI WORKS: UVGI works as a mutagen to bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms on a cellular level, penetrating the cell wall. This disrupts the microorganism DNA, breaking the carbon bond, which causes the death of the cell and/or renders it helpless.
PetAirapy’s air purification and surface sanitation systems utilize UV-C germicidal energy. Independent EPA approved laboratory test results show that PetAirapy UVGI had over 99.9% kill rate against zoonotic pathogens.
Why utilize UVGI within the animal care industry?
Respiratory infections are easily spread through the air and you want to inactivate airborne viruses and bacteria as quickly and as effectively as possible – Ultra Violet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) systems have proven that they are capable of doing this again and again.
UVGI has the ability to kill the microbes that are known to cause:
Kennel Cough (Canine Cough)
Is UV light safe for animals and humans?
YES! PetAirapy’s UVGI air systems are designed to be installed within your HVAC system or away from animal or human’s direct visibility. Surface disinfection units have a delayed start timer on them allowing ample time to leave the room and close the door before illuminating.
What makes PetAirapy’s UVGI different?
PetAirapy specializes exclusively in the animal care industry. Collaborating with reputable microbiologists and mechanical engineers, we developed an exclusive sizing method to deliver the correct amount of UV dosage or energy needed to quickly kill over 99.9% of zoonotic pathogens that can harm the animals in your care.
Do PetAirapy systems help control odor?
YES! VOC’s and odors that are suspended in the air will become neutralized as it passes over our UV lamps and Photo Catalytic Oxidation (PCO) grills.
