As disease outbreaks spread around the world and continue to develop, it is important for us to be prepared to prevent health and hygiene problems in our daily lives. In our daily life, it is strongly recommended to disinfect high-contact areas and objects, because we cannot ensure the exact viability of each virus or bacteria on different surfaces. When disinfecting during the epidemic, it includes not only hand sanitizer and soap, but also an ultraviolet disinfectant and ozone disinfectant.
What is UV light?
Ultraviolet rays can be divided into 3 bands, namely UVA, UVB, and UVC, with reduced wavelength and increased energy. Ultraviolet sterilizers use short-wavelength UVC light, which can kill up to 99.9% of bacteria and prevent bacterial growth. The ultraviolet light generated by the discharge of the mercury lamp penetrates the microorganisms and destroys the reproduction ability of the cells.

What is Ozone?
It is an unstable gas with different chemicals that can purify up to 99% of bacteria in a specific area. Ozone is produced by the discharge of dry air or pure oxygen.
