What is UV-C Technology

UV-C is a type of ultraviolet light, also known as Germicidal UV. It has the power to kill or incapacitate bacteria, mold, fungi, and viruses by destroying the DNA of dangerous pathogens. This is an extremely powerful technology to facilitate clean air, because there are no known microorganisms immune to UV-C energy.


How Does It Work?

Miniscule airborne droplets hold microorganisms that can transmit diseases such as measles, influenza and tuberculosis to humans. Germicidal UV light has a specific wavelength that breaks the DNA of these microorganisms and prohibits them from reproducing. Microorganisms that lack the ability to reproduce are consequently harmless.


What Are the Benefits?

Germicidal UV light has been used to protect against dangerous pathogens for over 50 years. It can be used to create a safer, healthier home environment, and can directly help prevent the transmission of diseases. UV-C Technology is safe, and our UV-C Guardian Technologies products are designed to protect users from direct irradiation while maximizing the amount of UV-C energy in a room.
