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.
How big is the product? The table top unit is about 15.5-inches tall.
Is the product expensive to operate? No. The UV-C bulb uses less energy than a standard light bulb.
How long will the bulb last? The UV-C bulb will last between 4,000 and 5,000 hours.
Will I need to replace the bulb? Yes, after 4,000 hours the bulb will lose approximately 15% of its efficiency. To maintain optimum performance it is recommended to change the bulb.
How do I know when I need to change my bulb? The bulb will flicker or change colors. That is an indication that the bulb is failing and needs to be replaced.
How long is the warranty? This unit comes with a 1-year limited product warranty. See instruction manual for further warranty information.

I have no idea idea how well this sanitizes air, but it makes a huge difference with odors. We keep this I the basement, where our 3 dogs sleep. 2 are hounds, and they stink. With this running, the odor is dramatically reduced. And the differenc was quickly noticeable, within a day. The air feels fresher there, even if we fall behind washing the beds. It's also very quiet and easy to operate. Very happy to add this to our home.

Excellent odor eliminator
Let me start off by saying that I wasn't aware that anything like the GermGuardian Air Sanitizer and Deodorizer existed before I got this, so I cannot compare it to any other devices of this type. Since I didn't really know what to expect I was shocked at how well it performs. The overall funkiest area in my house is the kitchen. I cook all sorts of food from curries to chitterlings, so the smell can get very pungent. My first test was the most intense one that I can think of which is the pork chitterlings. For those who have no idea what this is, its pig intestines. When prepared well they actually don't stink very much when cooked, but they tend to be a bit funky when you clean them. I had no idea what I was going to happen, so i just plugged it in, pushed the button and went on with preparing my meal. First of all the unit is very quiet. It's easy to forget that its on because it is such a low background noise that I just turned on the television and forgot about it. The ease of use is astonishing. I was prepared for some sort of programming, but it is really easy to operate. You literally plug it in push a button once for low and twice for high and then you can forget about it. Which is exactly what I did. I actually was half way through my meal prep when I realized that there was no scent in the air. I almost jumped for joy. I couldn't wait to try other intense scents. Next was a garlic ridden dish and then a curry after that I knew that this unit could handle anything. I am not trying to say that you will never smell anything again. The thing is, the scents aren't as intense and they clear out much faster than they would without the this. I'm sure that everyone can remember making something for dinner that you can still smell in the morning. This makes those days few and far between. It's not a total miracle worker, but it does its job. Since it also has air sanitizer qualities I would think that this would be great for baby rooms also. I would recommend this to anyone who is just tired of funky rooms.

Works great in small spaces, like laundry rooms and bathrooms
I am using this in my laundry room, which is also where I keep the cat's litter boxes. Because the space is small, the litter box odor was something I wanted to control better, even though we scoop at least twice a day. Adding this small UV air purifier has really helped the air in the laundry room be much more neutral. I am very happy with the results. This unit is too small to purify anything much larger than a bathroom or laundry room. It also isn't going to be able to overcome poor housekeeping or never scooping cat boxes. As long as you have reasonable expectations of what it can and can't do, you'll be pleased.
