    The UV lights used in some hospitals have had mixed results. Not because the light isn’t effective but because a light will only kill what is in line of sight. If you think about something as simple as a door handle (a high contact, germ laden surface) a good portion of it will not be exposed to the light without careful repositioning.

    I actually had one of these installed in my ice machines in my Firehouse Subs- and while they indeed helped- there nothing like a complete clean out and sanitation monthly
