Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
According to kidshealth.org, “germs” is a term that describes a variety of micro-organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa, that may cause and spread diseases. Simple cleaning with soap and water may not eliminate all of these germs. Allergy Asthma Technology delivers hospital-proven UV Sanitizers to remove all harmful micro-organisms, including allergens and bed bugs.
Germs thrive in a variation of environments, but most of them survive in warm, moist places. Some of the household places you would believe to be the least susceptible to germs are often times the most susceptible. For example, a kitchen sink contains a large amount of germs, due to the cleansing of most raw food, such as meat and poultry. The germs reside on the surface of the sink until properly disposed of. Bathrooms are a hotspot for germs and require more than cleaning. Bathtubs and showers collect mildew that can cause people to become ill. When toilets flush, they spray germ-filled droplets into the air, contaminating bathroom counters. Allergy Asthma Technology carries UV-C toothbrush holders that disinfect toothbrushes that may be exposed to these germs in the atmosphere. Also, according to Fitness Magazine, an office desk has 400 times more bacteria than a toilet bowl, mainly because a desk is seldom cleaned.
Allergy Asthma Technology’s UV Sanitizing Wands use the same technology as hospitals. An ultra-violet light works to penetrate through the micro-organism’s cell membranes in order to damage the DNA. This process also prevents the growth and spread of germs on surfaces. The UV light can also be used to kill bed bugs, dust mites, and other allergens that may affect humans. The UV light works to kill germs on many different surfaces. Some are hesitant to use products that emit UV light due to skin damaging concerns, but the amount of light emitted by these wands is not enough to damage humans unless directly placed on the skin or eyes for a long period of time.
Allergy Asthma Technology carries a line of UV Sanitizing devices that are suitable for multi-purpose use. Most of the wands are portable for traveling purposes. The smallest wand is similar to the size of a flip cellular phone, and the largest is the 23 inch long Nano-UV Wand Large Area Disinfection Scanner, but folds to about 14 inches for transportation. Dana Weiersheuser, from Chicago, IL, is pleased with her purchase of one of the UV Sanitizing Wands.
“The UV Wand is very portable and easy to use, making it extremely convenient to use around the house, in the bathroom, and particularly while traveling,” she states. “For me, the wand provides ‘peace of mind’. It is comforting to know that I can protect against germs wherever I go.” Allergy Asthma Technology also provides a bagless, CleanWave UV Vacuum Cleaner that kills germs with the UV light as it cleans. All of the devices the company offers are ideal for households with small children that are easily vulnerable to illness, as well as with elderly individuals. They are also a great way to get rid of dust mites for those that are allergic to them. Instead of having to continually go through the process of washing bedding once a week, UV Sanitizing Wands can be used to help eliminate dust mites and allergens in the bedroom.
