This product provides relief from: Bacteria & Germs

GermGuardian® GG1000 Plug-In UV-C Air Sanitizer by Guardia Technologies™ gets right to the heart of the problem of germ spread and contamination. Powerful UV-C ultraviolet light naturally has a wavelength in a range ideally suited for rendering microorganisms like bacteria and viruses harmless. When a germ or biological contaminant comes into contact with UV-C radiation, it destroys the genetic information in that organism's DNA that would otherwise allow it to reproduce, thereby destroying it. Simply plug the GermGuardian GG1000 into an outlet, let it run continuously, and as air passes through it, the germicidal nature of UV-C quietly and effectively works to eliminate 98% of the airborne biological threats that exist in targeted areas of our homes, schools and workplaces. The GG1000 GermGuardian pluggable UV-C air sanitizer not only sanitizes, but also battles organic and/or biological odors, leaving air feeling uniquely fresh. The GermGuardian UV-C room air sanitizer is designed to be run continuously.  1-Year Manufacturer's Limited Warranty (all parts, except bulb).
