How does the ultraviolet light in the WAVE Air Purifier kill both biological and chemical contaminants?

WAVE Air Purifier uses a “J” Lamp that produces UVC and UVV light (both wavelengths are fused into the Lamp).

UV-C is a short-wave radiation: it attacks the DNA of the cell. This wavelength primary uses are for the destruction of bacteria, viruses, mold and other microorganisms that pass through the Aluminum Reflector Tube. The Centers of Disease Control recommends this method for destroying viruses such as tuberculosis.

UV-V is primarily used for oxidation; this is the portion of the lamp that will destroy chemicals and odors such as cigarette smoke, VOC’s, aerosols cleaning solvents and formaldehyde.
