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 UV-C harmful? Prolonged exposure (i.e. eight hours) to UV-C light can create eye irritations. 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. UV-C Room Air Sanitizer How big is the product? The Germ Guardian is 18-inches tall and weighs less than five pounds. 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 8000 and 9000 hours, almost a full year of continuous operation. Will I need to replace the bulb? Yes, after 9,000 hours the bulb will loose 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. Why is the Germ Guardian made with steel and aluminum? Steel is a high-quality material that does not deteriorate when exposed to UV-C light for long periods of time. The aluminum used for the germ-killing chamber is highly reflective to UV-C light, which significantly increases the effectiveness of the Germ Guardian. Why doesn't the Germ Guardian emit ozone? The type of UV-C bulb used in the Germ Guardian is a special one that does not emit ozone out of the product. How long is the warranty? The Germ Guardian has a 5-year limited product warranty. Does the product require regular cleaning or maintenance? The only recommended maintenance is to replace the UV-C bulb and filter annually. Where should I use the product? The Germ Guardian can be used at home, in an office environment, hotel rooms, doctor’s office, or anywhere indoors where there is a desire or need to sanitize germs from the air. The Germ Guardian is not designed for outdoor use. Is the product safe around children or pets? Yes. The Germ Guardian is as safe as any other device that uses 120V of electricity. While all children and pets are advised not to play with the unit or its electrical cord, there are no additional safety risks. The Germ Guardian is cool to the touch and safe around children and pets. How much does the Germ Guardian cost? At present, the Germ Guardian retails for less than $200. If I buy the Germ Guardian will I still get sick? The purchase of a Germ Guardian does not prevent illness. Germ Guardian is designed to destroy 99.9% of targeted airborne germs.
