This type of light is short wave, and is commonly available as low or high pressure lamps as well as LED’s. You can’t see this UV wave, and it is harmless to us, but can actually do a lot of harm to nasty germs. The light can disrupt their DNA and make them unable to multiply or can simply kill them off. UV germicidal lights can also kill other nasty pollutants like lice and dust mites, which we really don’t want in our homes.
