Wavelengths between 200 and 300 nanometers that are germicidal – capable of inactivating bacteria, viruses, and protozoa.
UV Light prevents microorganisms from reproducing and infecting by damaging its nucleic acids
UV light destroys chemical contaminants such as pesticides, industrial solvents, and pharmaceuticals through a process called UV-oxidation
Does it really work?
Yes. Numerous health studieshave shown that UV Light very effectively inactivates viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi by breaking down their DNA or RNA. UV light also is helpful in the prevention of allergies related to airborne allergens. That's why Germcide™ UV STERILIZING LAMP minimizes contact with bacteria and viruses to keep you and your family safe & healthy.
How does UV Light kill bacteria?
UV light can kill or inactivate microorganismsby destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
Does it protect you from Coronavirus?
Yes. According to the National Health Commission in their latest guideline on the diagnosis and treatment of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the virus is sensitive to ultraviolet light and heat, which means UV light can eliminate the virus.
Except for mold, fungus, bacteria, viruses, and insects UV Light also removes all odorsand bad smells, refreshing the air. It helps to prevent future mold growthas well.
Is it safe to use?
It is safe to use on BPA-Free plastic, baby bottles, pacifiers, breast pump parts, jewelry, toothbrushes, iPads, cellphones, and even sunglasses, but you do want to avoid direct skin or eye contact as UV's effects on the human body vary depending on the length of exposure. As a result, you should turn on the lamp and leave the room for 15 minutes.
Is UV technology new?
UV sterilization was discovered in 1879 and sanitizing with UV light has been a normal practice since the mid-20th century. In fact, the 1903 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Niels Finsen for using UV light to fight tuberculosis. Today, hospitals and laboratories use UV light to keep their facilities sterile, which means it's perfect for sanitizing personal belongings and home living spaces, which are especially good at harboring and growing bacteriaand mold.
How long does it take to work?
It takes almost 15 minutes for UV light to effectively inactivate bacteria, which is why Germcide™ UV Sterilizing Lamp works for 15 minutes and then auto shuts off to preserve energy and battery power.
Where it can be used?
It works great in the bathroom, kitchen, pet areas, baby nursery,in your car, you can carry it everywhere! The best solution for hotel rooms when traveling. It is, however, most effective in areas that are less than 120 sq. ft.
HOW IT WORKS
1. Place it in the room you would like to sterilize.
2. Long press the on/off button for 3 seconds until the blue light turns on.
3. After 10 seconds, the sterilization light will be turned on automatically. (You can leave the room within this time)
4. The device will turn off automatically after 15 minutes of functioning.
