Germ Guardian GG1000
The Germ Guardian GG1000 UV-C is one of the only portable air sanitizers on the market that has been approved by the Harvard School of Public Health. This model actually sanitizes the air in the same way as hospitals, but the technology has been installed into a compact unit that’s perfect for small rooms such as a bedroom or bathroom were harmful bacteria can hide.
The GG1000 uses UV-C technology to not only kill airborne germs that cause pneumonia, staph, flu, tuberculosis and meningitis; it will target them as well. It works by pulling the bacteria into the unit and kills it off by bombarding it with ultraviolet-C light. This technology negates the need to use harmful chemicals and will effectively clean the air of this potentially dangerous bacterium.
Whisper quiet operation makes this model perfect for overnight use in a child or adult’s bedroom, as it's truly sanitizes the air quietly. The UV-C bulb that comes with this unit does not emit any ozone, making it an incredibly safe way to keep the air in your home clean.

What We Didn't Like
Some consumers have complained this unit is unstable when it’s plugged in. However, it can be rotated in order to eliminate this problem.
Germ Guardian claim whisper quiet operation with this air sanitizer however, it will still emit a low hum which proves it’s doing the job it has been designed for.
The GG100 UV-C sanitizer is in no way meant to be a purifier. It will not reduce the amount of dander or pollen in the air. As the name suggests it will work tirelessly to effectively seek out and kill harmful bacteria that can cause a variety of illnesses. Considering the technology used and the fact it has been approved by the Harvard School of Public Health, the price tag of between $40 and $60 is well worth the investment.Review by AirReflect ©
