UVC emits a short wavelength of 200-280 nm (nanometers), 254 nm being the most effective in breaking down germ DNA, leaving the cells unable to function and reproduce. Hospitals and the medical industry have been using UVC lighting since 2007 to manage viruses, bacteria, and other harmful pathogens. When UVC germicidal lighting is used in a safe manner it provides a fast, clean, and chemical free solution for sterilizing your business or home.

Additionally, they can deteriorate your surfaces and leave them coated in chemicals.
Ionizers are a semi effective disinfection solution; however, it comes with several health hazards that should be considered. Two major concerns are that most Ionizers use chemicals to “fog” an area. In addition, they create OZONE which is harmful to human and animal respiratory systems. Whereas UVC light disinfection uses NO chemicals and does not create OZONE. Using UVC light is safe for the environment as well as has no residual side effects.
