Vioguard, Inc. has collaborated with Two San Antonio uBreakiFix Stores so that they can offer free UV-C disinfecting solutions for gadgets.

FREMONT, CA: Vioguard, Inc., an industry leader in ultraviolet light disinfecting solutions, has announced its partnership with the Alamo Heights and City Base Landing uBreakiFix locations in the greater San Antonio area to provide safe, complimentary UV-C sanitization for the electronics.

Such initiatives focus on the extra measures that uBreakiFix repair shops are developing to create a safe exchange of devices that can be repaired to ensure the health of employees and customers. By implementing Vioguard's patented, FDA-approved UV-C products, the staff members at uBreakiFix will have the capability to kill 99.99 percent of the toughest pathogens available on electronics. The pathogens can consist of COVID-19, MRSA, E. coli, C.diff, and many more in under 60 seconds for any uBreakiFix customer.

According to Brian Mitchell, VP of Sales at Vioguard, "Research shows that the average smartphone carries more viruses and bacteria than door handles, elevator buttons and toilet seats combined, and it can live on your phone for months. This puts electronics repair shops like uBreakiFix in a unique position to help prevent the spread of these harmful, antibiotic-resistant pathogens through ultraviolet light. Now, staff and customers in San Antonio can rest assured that Vioguard's sanitation stations will be readily available to disinfect your electronic devices in under a minute.

Vioguard's patented dosimeter technology can cautiously measure the precise amount of UV-C light necessary to kill 99.99% of bacteria and viruses available at the molecular level. It can also decrease the requirement for chemical disinfection and disposal of biohazardous waste that allows complete disinfection.

"People are turning to personal electronics more than ever before to keep in touch and entertain themselves," said Antonia Escalante, uBreakiFix District Manager. "With increased use comes a greater need for sanitation solutions. We are excited to offer customers this complimentary, UV-C sanitation service so they can stay safe, healthy and connected."

The4 residents of San Antonio can visit the uBreakiFix store in Alamo Heights at 4714 Broadway or in City Base Landing at 3322 SE Military Dr. to disinfect their smartphones, tablets, laptops, or handheld game systems with the help of Vioguard's UV-C products for free.
