These types of UV systems can provide further protection against airborne dust, microorganisms, and other unpleasant particles.

What Kinds of Pollutants Can UV Kill?
Fortunately, ultraviolet light is highly effective for several types of microorganisms. These include mold, fungi, mildew, bacteria, and even viruses. UV light works by breaking down the molecular bonds in their DNA that holds them together –boom! This process will either kill them outright or render them unable to reproduce and spread., This means it will prevent them from infecting your home.
Can You Explain How These Systems Work?
