Verilux Cleanwave Sanitizing Wands Proven To Eliminate H1N1 and MRSA on Surfaces

Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory Confirms H1N1 and MRSA Viruses are Eliminated on surfaces with CleanWave Sanitizing Wands. Designed to clean and sanitize various types of household surfaces, such as upholstered chairs and sofas, bed mattresses and pet areas, the new dual-action Verilux CleanWave UV-C Sanitizing Furniture & Bed Vac (VH07) eliminates up to 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, germs, mold, dust mite and flea eggs.

Waitsfield, VT (PRWEB) December 22, 2009 -- Independent testing at a nationally recognized antimicrobial testing laboratory confirms Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Wands effectively eliminate H1N1 and MRSA viruses on surfaces. During testing, MRSA and H1N1 culture organisms were exposed to the CleanWave sanitizing light for 1 second at a distance of 22mm (0.86 inches) and showed a 99.9% reduction in MRSA and a 98.7% reduction of the H1N1 virus. The H1N1 culture organism showed an additional reduction of 99.9% after a 5 second exposure.

Verilux, an innovator in healthy lighting products since 1956, has been in development on the CleanWave sanitizing system since 2006. CleanWave Sanitizing Wands utilize chemical-free UV-C light to eliminate up to 99.9% of viruses, bacteria and dust mite and flea eggs on otherwise difficult to sanitize surfaces.

“UV-C light technology is a proven and powerful means of eliminating biological contaminants,” says Nicholas Harmon, President of Verilux, Inc. “We’ve taken a highly efficient technology that’s been used for over 30 years in hospitals, food processing facilities and water treatment plants, and adapted it for easy and safe use by consumers.”
Chemical-free, odorless UV-C light penetrates the membranes of biological pollutants and disrupts their reproductive capabilities. Used properly, the Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Wands eliminates up to 99.99% of bacteria, viruses, dust mite and flea eggs, and other organisms on surfaces, without the use of cleansers and disinfectants.

“Our sanitizing wands eradicate harmful organisms without relying on potentially irritating cleansers and disinfectants, which is a boon to anyone who suffers from chemical sensitivities, allergies and asthma,” says Harmon. “They also make it possible to sanitize hard to clean and delicate items that could be damaged with sprays and traditional chemical cleaners, such as electronics and computer equipment, mattresses, upholstered furniture, light switches, phones, soft toys, pacifiers and more.”
