New UV Sanitizer from Moen Offers Fast Sterilization and Added Cleanliness to Garbage Disposals

Homeowners now have an easy way to effectively clean a hard-to-reach space.

North Olmsted, Ohio… The kitchen sink and garbage disposal are two places that can often harbor a lot of bacteria, and Moen is making it more efficient to clean this area with a new UV Sanitizer. Now, users can help eliminate bacteria within their disposal, without having to use excess water or harmful cleaners. When the sink is not in use, simply insert the UV Sanitizer into the garbage disposal chamber and the device will successfully sterilize the disposal for a cleaner and healthier kitchen.

Harmful bacteria can easily build up in the garbage disposal, especially if foods like raw meat, eggs and fish are being disposed of often. Studies have shown that the UV-C technology utilized by the UV Sanitizer to disinfect the disposal's grind chamber can help reduce the spread of bacteria. When cleaning is needed, simply insert the standalone device into the disposal chamber for the full sanitization cycle to sterilize the area.

“This sink is one of the top places in the home where potentially disease-causing bacteria can be found and for most people the disposal chamber is out of site and out of mind when it comes to their regular cleaning routines. However, since raw food and dirt make its way through the disposal it’s important to keep this area disinfected to help prevent the growth of potentially harmful bacteria,” said Jeremy Gattozzi, product manager, garbage disposals, Moen. “With the new UV Sanitizer innovation from Moen, homeowners can now easily and effectively clean this hard-to-reach chamber.”

When not in use, the UV Sanitizer can be conveniently docked for charging in the kitchen, so it’s ready to go whenever cleaning is needed. The innovation is available as a bundle with the high-performing Moen® Host Series EX75c 3/4 horsepower garbage disposal and will be available later in 2022.
