Vyv Wellness

Wellness in a Post-Covid World

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything.

Many businesses and public spaces have shut down for the foreseeable future to keep people safe and prevent the disease from spreading. While Americans are anxious to return to their “normal daily life,” the scary reality is that life won’t be the same moving forward.

So what does our “new normal” look like? Will Americans be more aware of the spread of bacteria and disease and how to prevent transmission? Will businesses take more steps to improve cleaning protocols, to keep employees and customers healthy?

To answer these questions, we polled 1,000 U.S. residents over the age of 18 about their concerns and how their “normal daily life” behavior will change after the pandemic.

Vyv The Dirty Truth

The Dirty Truth

This is a survey (taken is November, 2019) of 1,200 Americans examining gaps and potential risks in their personal cleaning habits.

Our world is “dirtier” than ever. In fact, studies show the average person comes into contact with over 60,000 different types of bacteria each day. What’s worse is that antibiotic resistant bacterial superbugs are becoming increasingly common, killing 700,000 people each year. The world is facing a serious bacteria crisis – and a new study shows that we could be the problem.

This survey offers a wider discussion on the rapid spread of deadly diseases and how consumers’ poor hygiene / cleaning habits could contribute to this wider societal issue – highlighting data such as:

  • Over half (52%) of Americans only clean a surface in their home if it looks dirty
  • The vast majority (88%) use their smartphone while in the bathroom with almost half (46%) doing so every time
  • One in four (27%) don’t wash their hands after traveling on public transportation
  • Two in five (39%) use public transportation when they are sick – and 60% of this group don’t wipe any areas they’ve touched before they depart

7 Ways To A Cleaner Bottom Line

7 Ways Antimicrobial Light Delivers A Cleaner Bottom Line

Until recently, the choices to combat microbial contamination within food and beverage manufacturing environments were typically limited to:

  • Wiping and mopping with strong chemicals
  • Power-washing and deep cleaning by specialized cleaning services
  • Disassembling equipment, cleaning it and rebuilding it, typically using outside services

Now there is a new approach to mitigate contamination: antimicrobial light, a light wave frequency between 400 and 420nm that specifically targets bacteria, fungi, yeast and mold by creating an inhospitable environment that prevents further growth of microbes on surfaces within and around the food production environment.

The Efficacy Of Antimicrobial Light

The Efficacy of Antimicrobial non-UV LED Lights for Home, Public, and Industry

This paper highlights six research studies conducted in multiple settings for antimicrobial light. The report highlights research into the effectiveness of the properties of a new class of antimicrobial light, which is found in the visible light spectrum (400-420nm).

Although the germicidal properties of ultraviolet (UV) light have long been known and applied for many years to destroy microorganisms, it is only recently that the antimicrobial properties of visible light have been applied to combat environmental contamination and the spread of disease and infection.

Vyv has been rigorously tested in both controlled labs and in active environments. The results confirm Vyv reduces the microbial buildup and bioburden on surfaces in some significant ways.

Read this compendium of research studies on the efficacy of Vyv antimicrobial light to learn more.
