Washing our hands and face is something we do often and never think twice about. We sanitize high-touch surfaces in our household and spray disinfectants to keep germs at bay. What we don’t realize is that all of the precautionary measures we take might be easily reversed by just opening a door and touching the door handle or grabbing our phones, keys and other daily essentials.
A study conducted by the University of Arizona revealed that your cellphone is a hot spot for germs — in fact, they found that it can carry 10 times more bacteria than most toilet seats. You can only imagine how many germs are on public touchpoints like door handles.
A good way to combat the germs that live on touchpoints like door handles your phone and other household items is with UV-C sanitization.
How does Bizgad UV-C sanitizer work?
It works by using a special lamp that can emit the proper amount of UV-C light needed to kill bacteria on smooth surfaces.
UV light works because it damages the DNA of bacteria and the DNA or RNA of viruses. If you damage the DNA of the bacteria it dies, and if you damage the nucleic acid of the virus enough it cannot infect.
UV-C light works best on smooth, flat surfaces, it is important to note that a UV-C sanitizer may not work optimally if it is used on items with rough surfaces.
Additionally, you should wipe down the item you want to clean before using a UV-C sanitizer. If microorganisms are going to be killed by UV’C light the surface needs to be clean of any material that is present on the surface such as dust, skin cells and skin oils.
