What Are UV Air Sanitizers?
Simply put, UV Air Sanitizers utilize UV-C, which is part of the ultraviolet light spectrum that is filtered out by the earth’s atmosphere, to kill airborne germs. The goal is to reduce the actual growth or development of microbiological organisms such as fungi, bacteria, or viruses.
How Do UV Sanitizers Work?
UV-C light reduces the DNA of germs eliminating their ability to reproduce. Titanium Dioxide enhances killing efficiency and odor elimination.
**Based on test standard GB21551.3-2010 antibacterial and cleaning function for household and similar electrical appliances.
Why UV-C Technology?
- UV-C has been used for over 100 years to kill germs on surfaces, in the air and in the water
- UV-C has been proven to kill up to 99.9% of germs**
- Many hospitals use UV-C to sanitize rooms, medical tools, sinks and more

We purchased two and they arrived yesterday. We plugged one in underneath our sink where it smelled like mildew. This morning, the mildew smell is gone, which is great, but there is an unusually strong sweet smell in its place and my face started to tingle and feel weird when I looked underneath the sink.
I read two studies this morning that report that the combination of UV-C and titanium dioxide (or PCO (Photocatalytic Oxidiation) which is what powers this GermGuardian) does indeed break down mold spores and VOCs...but it breaks them down into simple molecules like formaldehyde and other aldehydes:
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
"The researchers found that because of incomplete decomposition of the VOC's in the inlet air stream there was a net production of formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, formic acid and acetic acid. Of particular concern was that the outlet concentrations of formaldehyde and acetaldehyde were 3.4 and 4.6 times the inlet concentrations, respectively. Both formaldehyde and acetaldehyde are recognized as important indoor toxicants. Formaldehyde is classified as a human carcinogen."
Science Daily source Concordia University
"Imagine if, in an effort to clean the air more efficiently, you were involuntarily introducing chemicals more dangerous than the ones you were trying to scrub. Concordia University researchers have found that this exact situation is happening with a type of air filter called photocatalytic oxidation (PCO), a product already on the market. The chemical by-product? Formaldehyde, a known human carcinogen."
I'd like to hear from the GermGuardian people about this. It looks like a very serious health hazard that is created by these devices.
Well now I know that it was probably the humidity levels that were the issue. I'm in a very dry climate. My basement is cooler and has higher relative humidity than the rest of my house. So elsewhere in the house, I was getting ozone but little to no hydroxyl. Ozone is prone to leave breakdown products from VOCs. Here is a study of an industrial-level-remediation hydroxyl generator, which indicated it took about five days to completely break down house-fire type smoke odors in a testing room. http://envair.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Mike_Pinto_Hydroxyl_Radicals_for_Fire_Restoration_Part_2_Study_Final.pdf. They don't discuss humidity but this one does http://hydroxyltruths.com/Comparison-UVSystems%20Total%204-15-13.pdf.
Just found some mold on my pantry floor from a leaky container of fruit. Pulled out several cardboard containers with visible mold. Sprayed this https://www.amazon.com/EnviroKlenz-Fragrance-Free-Non-Toxic-Treatment-Upholstery/dp/B01I00V9II all over the floor and put my Germ Guardian in the pantry with a jar of water and a fabric pad sticking out to help diffuse it into the air. So get busy lil hydroxyls and decontaminate my pantry! I will leave it for several days and re-evaluate. Seems weird to be adding humidity to the air where mold is found, but we'll see. So far no nasty odors from the Germ Guardian like before.
I could have remedied this by closing the bathroom door, but then my cat would not be able to use the littler box and this would defeat the purpose. I really wanted to like this product because of its compact size and the fact that it does help clean the air. However, the noise was too much and it was far from pleasing... specially at night when trying to sleep.
- Fairly compact
- Cleans the air of some rooms such as bathrooms
- Loud, sounds like a hair dryer
- Does emit a fair amount of light
