Verilux Cleanwave Sanitizing Wands Proven To Eliminate H1N1 and MRSA on Surfaces
Date:12/22/2009

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.”

Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Wands
Two different CleanWave Sanitizing Wands are available for use at home, in the office and on the road. The CleanWave UV-C Sanitizing Wand (model VH01) is the most powerful version, ideal for tackling the most challenging areas of the house (e.g., drapes, upholstery, mattresses and bedding). The fast-acting CleanWave UV-C Sanitizing Wand sanitizes a single size mattress in as little as 6 minutes, and telephones and cell phones in just a few seconds. Slim and lightweight, the rechargeable, cordless wand measures 20.75 inches high by 2.5 inches wide and weighs just 1.5 pounds. Comfortable to use, one end of the wand is tapered and features a grooved design to ensure a secure and comfortable grip. Key features include a long-life UV-C bulb (replacement bulbs are available for purchase), an easy to read LCD panel time indicator and a built-in safety switch that automatically shuts off the UV-C light if the device is turned upward to protect eyes from exposure. Available at www.amazon.com and at www.verilux.com, the CleanWave UV-C Sanitizing Wand comes with an attractive and durable canvas storage case with convenient carrying handles. The suggested retail price is $89.95.

The second wand in the series is the battery-powered CleanWave UV-C Sanitizing Travel Wand (model VH03). Perfect for sanitizing surfaces on the road – such as pull-out trays and headrests on planes and trains, hotel and motel blankets, telephones, doorknobs, remote controls and drawers – the ruggedly designed, compact wand is the ideal companion for road warriors. Designed with a built-in safety switch, the compact wand, which easily fits inside carry-on luggage, measures 10.39 inches high by 1.5 inches wide, and weighs less than half a pound (.3 lbs). The CleanWave UV-C Sanitizing Travel Wand is available at www.amazon.com and at www.verilux.com. The suggested retail price is $59.95.
