UV light to eradicate bedbugs

Does the thought of bedbugs may make your skin crawl? Then watch out, because reports of bedbug infestation are on the rise. Once thought of as an issue found only in areas with poverty, bedbugs are now being found in four-star hotels, high-end retail clothing stores, and upper-class luxury apartments in Manhattan. Because the problem has become rather common, The New York City Department of Health and Hygiene has addressed this issue on their website. This public health service publishes a brochure that states that only pesticides will eradicate the pesky critters, but this is not an option for people who are chemically sensitive or have compromised detoxification pathways.

One option for those who cannot tolerate pesticides or prefer to not be exposed to them is this latest product from Verilux, known as cleanWave uV-c sanitizing Furniture & Bed Vac™, which uses ultraviolet rays to sterilize surfaces such as pillows, mattresses, and telephones safely and effectively. It can eliminate musty smells and pet odors. CleanWave™ is a chemical-free, odorless, and eco-friendly method to eliminate germs and bacteria and even kill bed bugs. Verilux has independent test results to show effi cacy on certain microbes, such as dust mites, mold, and hepatitis.

UV-C waves penetrate the membranes of viruses, bacteria, mold, and dust mites— attacking their DNA—terminating them and their ability to spread. The smaller, lighter UV-C sanitizing Travel Wand emits a blue spectrum of light to help you see the surface area you are leaning. This product is truly a breakthrough for disinfecting your surroundings at home and away!
