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 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.

They do what they are designed to do...but they are a bit loud!
As stated in my review summary, these work great to sanitize the air but the fan noise is a little too loud.
Works very well.
I share my home with seven indoor cats. The litter boxes are in one room and I had noticed odors from time to time even though I keep the boxes clean. I bought two of these devices and plugged them in in the same room. Within hours the odors were completely gone! Plus the room has continued to stay fresh. I can recommend these highly.
Small but powerful!
I love, love, love this air purifier! It plugs right in to the wall. I could smell and feel a difference after one night of using it. Extremely quiet and works powerfully for being so small. Happy customer and will continue to purchase GermGuardian purifiers and products in the future!
Great product, deliverer quickly.
We got a second cat and our house started to smell a little more like animals so we bought two of these to run near the bathrooms/litter boxes. Order these one afternoon and they showed up the next day. Amazingly fast! For such small little devices they work wonders. After just one day the air smells totally clean. I can no longer smell the litter boxes and the house overall is odor free. The one downside is the units are not whisper quiet and make some white noise background.

Buy this product. You won't regret it.
Three cats. One dog. Two kids. Home cooked meals. Lots of odors. I've bought every product on the market to combat those smells. Febreeze. Candles. Scentsy. Air fresheners. None of it really works. Finally decided to splurge and buy this. I'm so glad I did. Works quickly and perfectly. I will NEVER be without this product again. I love not having a litter box smell in my hom . Buy this product. You won't regret it.
Attention All Pet Lovers!
I recevied the Germ Guardian Elite as a gift and I am here to purchase another. I have two cats and a litter box that I clean daily but still, I spend too much time worrying about if the house smells like kitties. I plugged in the Guardian and gave myself 24 hours to see if I noticed a difference in the air quality where the litter box is located. This device does it's job. A day later I could truly detect the purity of the air flow and the absence of all smells really fascinated me. I've never been in an environment where the air was so clean. It is worth the money. Be aware it does make a low "white noise" sound while plugged in that I find soothing.
