Guardian Technologies® Frequently Asked Questions
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 germ and they die.
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 water system. This technology is still used today in hospitals, commercial buildings and custom homes to kill germs.

This works greatPosted by: Joe S
It makes the room smell cleaner. This product is made with real steal and feels like quality. all it is a strong UV light with a carbon filter. I have 3 of these in the house and work them 24/7. Itâ€™s not too loud at full speed to bother me at night and it has kept my family from not getting sick from each other when one has a cold or flu. Simple devise and a simple design that does the job! The bulb does need to be replaced about every 4 months or so but how much do you have to pay for medicine and doctor visits? I hate getting sick or seeing my family members get sick. This will also clean up a lot of the mold and mildew smell around it as well.What's great about it: has kept me from catching a virus from family members What's not so great: replace bulb every 4 months but worth it.

noise levelPosted by: Grandma
The literature states 'whisper soft' but my unit is much louder than that. Before I got the unit I could here the coyotes and owls at night. Now I have the germ guardian on and I can't hear anything... I really think it's loud. Took me awhile to be able to sleep as it's much louder than 'white noise'. Otherwise, I like it.

Short LifePosted by: Tom - Tampa
The bulbs only last for about 6 months and have to be mail ordered. With a working bulb, it is good, but replacement bulbs are expensive as is the shipping.
