Previously used in hospitals, industrial and government establishment, ultraviolet sanitizing devices have become the new way of disinfecting surfaces and objects in our daily life. There are three main types of UV rays: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. Among the three, UV-C has the shortest wavelength and the highest energy. Thus, it is capable of killing bacteria and viruses, also called pathogens. UV-C light has a wavelength between 100nm to 280nm. It attacks the genetic structure (DNA and RNA) of viruses and bacteria, rendering them inactive and unable to reproduce. Because of its effectiveness at destroying harmful pathogens, including drug resistant super-bugs, UV sanitizing devices are gaining popularity among consumers. Here are a few main reasons why people are choosing the latest technology over traditional disinfection methods.
Its portable design ensures that you are safe wherever you go. Carrying liquid detergents, towel and gloves can get extremely inconvenient and may cause discomfort, whereas UV sanitizing wand is small and light. These wands can be used in restaurants, cars, work space, hotel rooms, planes and so on, where going with a bucket full of disinfectant liquid may be a bit embarrassing.
This rechargeable device stays with you for a long time. LED light bulbs are designed to last much longer than traditional mercury light bulbs. They produce much less heat, are more compact and, most importantly, contain no harmful chemicals. If you accidental drop your UV wand that uses traditional tube light bulb, you would risk shattering the bulb and are left with a problematic poisonous mercury situation to deal with. Therefore, more and more consumers are switching to UV sanitizing devices that use LED ultraviolet technology. Furthermore, unlike chemical disinfecting sprays, where you need to restock them over and over again frequently, UV wands can last months, even years with proper care. In this way, not only does it vastly reduce packaging waste, but also can save you a substantial amount of money in the long run.
Fast and Efficient
Unlike liquid disinfectants, UV sanitizing wands remove the need to wait for the liquid residue to evaporate. After using the wands to sanitize surfaces or objects, they're ready for use again. This is especially useful for families with children. Kids are, in general, impatient, especially when we're young toddlers. Therefore, telling them they need to wait 10, 15 minutes before they can play with their toys again could result in upset, fussy or even screaming kids. The Veilad UV sanitizing wand has powerful ultraviolet LED light bulbs built in, that effectively kills up to 99% germs that thrive on phones, silverware, bed sheets, toilet seats, toys, door handles etc.
Although UV sanitizing wands have limitations to what they can be used for, they are by far the most versatile sterilizing tool. They can be used to disinfect nearly anything other than living creatures. Some examples are electronics, clothes, bedding, couches, toys and other baby products. You would not want to use chemical spray on your phones or computers, but UV wands can be safely used to sanitize these electronics in a minute or so. The same goes for baby bottles and clothes. Of course, you would still need to wash the bottles and clothes after use. UV wands are ideal for a good cleaning of the bottles before you feed your little ones, to give them an extra layer of protection against the invisible danger.
Chemicle-Free and Odorless
Some people are susceptible to harsh chemical fume and residue. In that case, the UV sanitizing wand would be a perfect alternative. The wand produces no chemical smell or ozone while in operation, and leaves nothing harmful behind. Households with newborn babies and people with medical conditions who suffer from allergic reaction to common chemical disinfectants are using UV wands to improve their hygiene, without the side effect of agitation and allergic reaction from chemicals.
In conclusion, the UV sanitizing wands are becoming more and more prevalent in our lives because of their benefits and practicality. Thanks to our revolutionary breakthrough in ultraviolet light technology, the UV wands and other UV sanitizing devices are now accessible and affordable to most households, small businesses, schools, churches and many organizations.
