How would you feel if you knew one item in your house or hospital room, is designed to reduce the growth of bacteria 99.9%?

Leviton offers a line of switches and stainless steel wallplates that are made with an antimicrobial additive embedded into their materials which helps prevent the growth of many common bacteria, odor-causing mold and fungi.  When cleaned regularly, that additive works to reduce 99.9% of bacterial growth on our switch and wallplate surfaces!
