Increasingly people are becoming aware of the damage to their health caused by harmful microbes like bacteria and viruses. These microorganisms are easily transferred to different surfaces. When the microbes infect a person, the immune system of the person fights these microbes, adversely affecting their health. If microbe infects a person, he is more likely to fall sick. Hence, people are interested in preventing microbial infection quickly and easily. They wish to destroy the microbes before they enter the human body. One of the most popular method for safely killing the harmful bacteria, viruses and other microbes is by using a Sterilizer Stick, which uses Ultra violet (UV) light.
Most of the conventional methods of disinfecting surfaces involve using disinfectant liquids and wipes. It is risky to use these liquids on many surfaces, especially electronics, since the liquid also contains some amount of water. These liquids are also messy and leave some residue. These liquids also usually have a strong odor due to the chemicals in them. The sterilizer stick is the preferred way to kill the microbes on different surfaces, because it is very conveniently designed and easy to use. The main advantage of the sterilizer stick is that it can kill bacteria and viruses without any direct contact with the surface being disinfected.
The main component in the sterilizer stick is the ultraviolet lamp. The ultra violet light from the Handheld Sterilizer Lamp acts on the DNA and RNA in the cells of the bacteria, viruses and other microbes, damaging the cells. If the bacteria are exposed to the ultraviolet, disinfecting lamp for long enough, there is more damage to the cells, and the bacteria will not be able to repair it. This will result in the death of the microbes and ensure that the microbes do not multiply. So exposing the infected surface to UV radiation is a very effective way of destroying harmful microorganism.
The sterilizer stick is well designed and easy to use. If the user wishes to disinfect a particular surface, they only have to switch on the round button on the sterilizer stick. This will activate the UV lamp whose purple UV light disinfects the surface to which it is exposed. Users should be aware that the surface being disinfected should be exposed to the UV lamp for at least twenty seconds to kill the microbes. If the surface is exposed for a shorter time to the UV radiation, the damage to the harmful microbes may not be enough.
The UV lamp is designed so that it can be used only when it is facing downwards. It has a safety feature incorporated so that the UV lamp will not switch on when it is facing up. This will ensure that the lamp does waste energy. Even if the user has accidentally switched on the lamp and placed it facing upwards, no power is wasted. The UV light is also harmful to people, plants, pets and animals. Hence, this safety feature ensures that the user or others do not face any problem, if they are accidentally exposed to the lamp.
One of the main reasons why the sterilizer stick is becoming extremely popular is that it is light in weight, portable and can be easily carried from one place to another. The mainly cylindrical stick is approximately 17.5 cm in length and 3.5 cm in diameter. The stick is designed with a curve in the bottom half so that the user can easily hold it in his hands, while using it for disinfecting the surfaces. The base of the germicidal stick is circular, so that it can be placed on any flat surface when not in use. The weight of the stick is only 59 gram, so it can be easily carried to office or while travelling.
The stick is white in color, so that it is easily visible and can be found in a bag in which it is carried. High quality plastic is used for making the sterilizer stick, so that it is light in weight and durable. It is also easy to clean the stick, if water spills on it or it becomes dirty. The UV lamp in the sterilizer stick operates at a voltage of 3 volts. Hence two AAA batteries of 1.5 Volt each are required for the lamp. The user should note that these batteries are not supplied with the lamp, the user should arrange for them.
One of the most popular applications of the UV stick is for cleaning keyboards, computer mouse and other electronic equipment. Most of the disinfectants available are water based, and using these on electronics, can damage the electronics causing short circuits. Increasingly people are becoming aware of how viruses and bacteria are easily spread, causing illness so they are taking more precautions for disinfecting the surfaces they are meeting. Similarly tablet and mobile phone users can also use the sterilizer stick to destroy the microbes on the gadgets which they are using frequently.
A wide variety of surfaces can be disinfected using the sterilizer stick. These include plastic, textiles especially clothes, wood, metal and ceramic. Babies and small children are easily infected by microbes and fall ill. Hence to prevent infection, the surfaces which the babies, children are using should be sterilized using the stick. The children's clothes can also sterilized, especially in winter, when children are more likely to fall ill.
The kitchen, bathroom and toilet surfaces have many harmful microbes due to the higher moisture levels, so the sterilizer can be used to kill the bacteria, microbes in these areas periodically. The seat and seat cushion in vehicles can also have harmful microbes. Therefore, while the sterilizer stick can be used on the vehicles of the user, this sterilizer method is preferred when traveling longer distances by flight, train or bus to prevent infection. It is a quick way to kill the harmful microorganism, especially when there is an epidemic in the area.
Increasingly health conscious people are interested in disinfecting surfaces quickly and easily. The sterilizer stick with a UV lamp is one of the easiest and most effective way of getting rid of harmful microbes.
