UVC Sanitation Innovations and Implementation


In this episode of Making the Invisible Visible, host Daniel Litwin welcomes Phone Soap co-founder/CEO Wesley LaPorte and Jared Elliot, Director of Global Sales. The three discuss how UV-C technology leaped from the corporate space to clean quickly and safely everything from businesses to classrooms. For years, UV-C has been at the forefront of a sanitization transformation. Now, it has entered the consumer space as a powerful disinfectant of mobile devices at home.

As the virus continued its growth, Phone Soap, which began in 2011, connected the dots on consumer use and soon sold out its devices. LaPorte said, “Although previously used in laboratory and medical environments, UV-C also works, to disinfect personal electronics touched by your family and others in everyday use.” But he also added, “trusting that the product and brand produces a product that works is important.”

Personal devices are constantly being used and in various settings. And tests have shown that one of the dirtiest items we have is a phone, yet it’s rarely cleaned. Phone Soap has designed and built a proven and effective design while testing with Intelligo dosimeters. As a result, Phone Soap created the personal disinfection device market and continues to work very well with expansion to other sizes for shared-use items.

The development of personal UV-C disinfectant devices has assisted a shift to concerns for cleanliness. As a result, Elliot said, “UV-C devices are now appearing in business, fitness centers and offices where people interact, shop and work.”

“There’s additional use cases for UV-C disinfection,” says Elliott, “and we’re just scratching the surface.”
