Germ Guardian UV-C Plug-In Air Sanitizer - GG1000 DescriptionThe Germ Guardian UV-C Plug-in Air Sanitizer is an outstanding product for helping to maintain a germ-free home. It has been proven effective in tests by the Harvard School of Public Health. Simply plug it into the outlet and it will eliminate 99.9% of germs that pass through it. The Germ Guardian UV-C Plug-in Air Sanitzer utilizes the same technologies hospitals use to eliminate a wide variety of germs, bacteria and mold spores. It will also help eliminate odors. Because of its small size and quiet operation, it does its germ-killing work without anyone noticing it. It is also very low maintenance, requiring nothing more than a change of the bulb every six months. Its low cost makes it practical for use in multiple rooms throughout the home, which is why we recommend it so highly. Unfortunately, it is not possible to keep germs confined to a single room and therefore sanitizing only one room in a house will not really keep the house germ-free. With multiple units, the Germ Guardian UVC Plug-in air Sanitizer is still a practical, affordable way to keep your entire home germ-free. Highly recommended.

What is UV-C?
UV-C is part of the Ultra-violet light spectrum that is filtered out by the earth's atmosphere. The "C" stands for the particular frequency of UV light that kills germs
Why is UV-C so effective at destroying germs?
UV-C light is highly effective at penetrating thin-walled germs like viruses and bacteria. The light alters the genetic structure of the germs and they die.
Is UV-C harmful?
Prolonged exposure (i.e. eight hours) to UV-C light can create eye irritations.
Why is UV-C used in hospitals to sanitize?
Hospitals use UV-C light technology to kill germs in the air and on surfaces. UV-C has been proven to kill up to 99.9% of germs that cause: influenze, strep throat, colds, staph infections and tuberculosis. UV-C has been proven to kill germs that are drug-resistant.
Is this new technology?
No. UV-C has been used to kill germs for almost 100 years. The first usage was in France in 1909 to disinfect their waste system. This technology is still used today in hospitals, commercial buildings and custom homes to kill germs.
