While it may seem like a too-good-to-be-true, state-of-the-art technology, UV has been used safely for over 100 years to sanitize surfaces, water, even the air we breathe.
While we can’t see them, microscopic organisms can be difficult to get rid of and can pose potential health hazards: germs, viruses, mold, and bacteria lurk on almost surface in our homes: probably even the device you’re reading these very words on.
But it’s hard to maintain clean surfaces: traditional chemical cleaners like disposable wipes are messy, costly, and fill out landfills, landscapes, and waterways. On top of that plenty of people are sensitive to harsh chemicals, added fragrances, and potentially toxic ingredients.
UV cleaning provides a solution to all these issues, killing 99.9% of germs and bacteria with only the use of UV-C light: something the sun has been shining for millennia.
