When a cannabis grow room is empty, that is the ideal time to implement a complete decontamination of the space. A complete removal of all microbial life including fungi, bacteria, spores, and viruses requires a sterilization-level process. A sterile environment from the start, as well as only sterile items being introduced into that environment, will help best assure lack of mold and other contaminants. A sterilization at the end of every harvest is also good insurance no pathogens will proliferate when the next crop starts.
light (UV-C) is an easy way to achieve high-level disinfection to any exposed
surface in minutes. This chemical-free and residue-free disinfection method
will help reduce mold spores, therefore minimizing future risk of exposure to
the cannabis plant. This is best utilized in a completely clear space to ensure
maximum exposure to the UV-C light. Ultraviolet light disinfection is a fast,
simple to use method, capable of providing a 99% reduction of spores within
minutes without any dangerous residues to be wiped down or neutralized
Controlling mold and other microbial contaminants is essential to any operation as it is a strong threat to cannabis. Before plants enter the grow room, whether it is a new facility or at the end of harvest, measures should be taken to ensure no dangerous organisms are present that can result in wreaking havoc on the new crop.
