The ongoing pandemic has made everyone aware of how virtually invisible germs threaten our health. Keeping ourselves and the objects we use clean, has thus become a priority. The best way to keep your hand clean is by washing them with soap and water but when it comes to your mobile phone, your laptop, etc. washing them is not an option. This is where a UV sterilizer is helpful. UV sterilization involve using ultraviolet germicidal irradiation or UV disinfection to kill microbes and keep them from reproducing. Today, it is not just hospitals that use these systems, you should use them in your home too. Here’s why.
Keeps your home germ free
When you wipe an object clean, you do not kill the microbes, you simply transfer them from one surface to another. Even if you use a cleaning agent, some microbes will remain. On the other hand, UV sterilization is much more effective. It can kill all kinds of bacteria, fungi and viruses including those that have been marked as drug resistant. It can be used to clean all types of surfaces and can even sterilize water.
Convenient to use
Using a UV sterilizer is simple and convenient. You simply place the things to be sterilized in the device and let it do its job. These devices are designed to disinfect the entire surface area of an object in a matter of minutes. In fact, it will take less than 5 minutes to sanitize your phone and keys when you get back home.
No chemical residue
When you share your home with infants and pets, chemical residue left behind by cleaners is something you cannot afford to ignore. This is why many people prefer UV sterilization to chemical sanitizers. The device cleans without releasing any toxins into the air or leaving behind any chemical residue. Thus, it is safe for use at homes as long as the device is kept shuttered and your skin is not exposed to the UVC radiation.
Minimize risk of human error
When you clean your phone manually, there is a risk of missing a spot. This risk increases with irregular shaped objects. However, when you choose to sterilize an object with UV rays, every sq. cm of the object is cleaned. Similarly, if you have a couple of things to be cleaned, you may forget one. However, with UV sterilization, everything is cleaned thoroughly and nothing is forgotten. Thus, it helps you sanitize more thoroughly.
There are many different types of UV sterilizers available in the market. They can be used to sanitize all types of objects such as fresh fruits and vegetables, liquids in sealed containers, groceries, metal objects, electronic gadgets and more. Ideally, look for a device that has multiple light sources so that all pathogens can be successfully killed. These units also have varying capacities. Minionlabs' UV Saaph can easily disinfect everyday things including groceries. For home use, a small, portable device should be sufficient. It’s you and your family's health and wellbeing at risk so don’t take any chances.
