Dust mites and flea control on surfaces
"Every home has dust mites." So acknowledges the The Environmental Protection Agency.
It gets worse: A single mattress may be home to as many as 10 million dust mites and a multitude of bacteria and viruses.
For many, dust mites are such a concern that they remove all fabric-covered furniture and carpets from their homes, as these areas are breeding grounds for dust mites and cannot be readily cleaned without harsh chemicals. The UV-C light in Verilux Sanitizing products is 100% chemical-free and safe for all surfaces, including bedding, furniture, electronics and children’s toys.
In independent laboratory testing, 100% of flea eggs and dust mite eggs failed to hatch when exposed to UV-C light from a Verilux Sanitizing Wand.
By effectively eliminating biological contaminants without the use of chemicals, you will positively affect your home environment and the health of the planet.
Verilux Sanitizing Products, like the CleanWave Sanitizing Wand, kill up to 99.9% of germs and certain allergens.
