Uses UV-C Technology


UV-C, which is part of the ultraviolet light spectrum that is filtered out by the earth’s atmosphere, fights odors and airborne germs without the use of chemicals. The goal is to reduce or eliminate the actual growth or development of microbiological organisms such as fungi, bacteria, or viruses.



Eliminates Over 98% of Airborne Germs


UV-C Sanitizers have the power to kill or incapacitate bacteria, mold, fungi, and viruses by destroying the DNA of dangerous pathogens that pass through the light. This is an extremely powerful technology to eliminate over 98% of airborne germs and facilitate clean air, because there are no known microorganisms immune to UV-C energy.



Chemical-Free


Many leading brand air sanitizers use a chemical substance agent to detoxify the environment by neutralizing odors and minimizing airborne bacteria. UV-C uses the power of UV light to safely eliminate bacteria and odors, without adding chemicals to the air.



Fights Odors and Allergens


Many consumers choose leading air fresheners to remove odors from their home and simulate a healthier environment. However, certain air fresheners simply mask odors rather than eliminate them. Some air fresheners have even been known to have chemicals that provoke allergy symptoms. To both eliminate odors and allergens in one, it’s recommended to use a chemical-free sanitizer with UV-C technology.

They’re also all a safe and chemical-free way to sanitize your home environment. The only thing left to do is select your desired size and model!
