So how does UV Light disinfect spaces? Unfortunately, only living organisms or cells can be killed, therefore, since viruses and germs are non-living things, it is unable to be exterminated by UVC. However, how UVC works here is that it deactivates viruses by breaking up the DNA and RNA genetic material, hence stopping it from continuously reproducing. Similarly, this is how it works for bacteria as well. Although normal light, UVA, or UVB alone can also help to deactivate bacteria, such longer wavelengths are not as effective as UVC in breaking up the DNA and RNA genetic material of the pathogens.
