Raytech also has this to say about it's UV Lamps:
Shortwave UV is an effective germicidal tool. It is used in sanitizing lab ware, air, water, and whole rooms. Sanitation services spray washable UV dyes on laundry to ensure complete sanitation. The absence of the fluorescing dyes ensures the job was done. UV lamps aid in the detection of organic mineral deposits that remain on surfaces where periodic cleaning and sanitizing may not be properly accomplished. Both urine and phosphate soaps are easily detected using UV inspection. Pet urine deposits in carpeting or other hard surfaces can be detected for accurate treatment and removal of mineral tracers and the odor causing bacteria that feeds on the proteins within. Many hospitality industries use UV lamps to inspect for unsanitary bedding to determine life cycle for mattress restoration as well as general performance of the cleaning staff. UV lamps are helpful in identifying unsanitary conditions in hotels, public toilets, hand rails etc.
