MANILA, Philippines – Going out means taking the mandated safety precautions of using a face mask, face shield, and avoiding crowded situations. Disinfecting is also needed, with thorough handwashing, along with making sure that the items that you touch are also constantly sanitized.
Aside from always ensuring that high-touch surfaces at home are wiped clean, an added layer of protection would be to use the disinfecting power of UV rays to eliminate germs that can cause not only Covid-19 but also many other different diseases.
A UV sterilizer can provide peace of mind and safety, but there are several things you need to look for in order to ensure that you are getting the best one for your family. There are different types of UV sterilizers in the market today, ranging from portable handheld wands, to cabinet-style sterilizers, and even ones that are made to disinfect entire rooms. However, some types have already been cautioned for use because of safety issues and effectiveness.
What buyers need to look at when choosing their UV sterilizers include the wavelength and type of UV light that it emits, with UV-C light with a wavelength power of between 245 to 280 nm being the most effective in killing germs and viruses than UV-A or UV-B.
It also needs to have high reflexibility surfaces to bounce UV lights around an object being sterilized for a more effective and thorough sterilization. Safety features such as automatic shut-off are also a must, because exposure to UV-C light can be damaging to the eyes and the skin. Proven third-party test results from reputable scientific or medical organizations are also a good way to ensure that the sterilizing product is safe and effective.
