CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A light bulb comprised of an ultraviolet filament and a white light filament contained within a single outer covering.

2. The light bulb according to Claim 1 , further containing a housing unit.

3. The light bulb according to Claim 2, further comprising a switch within said housing unit.

4. The light bulb according to Claim 2, further comprising a switch outside of said housing unit.

5. A light device comprised of an ultraviolet light source and an additional light source; wherein said additional light source is selected from the group consisting of a white light fluorescent and incandescent light.

6. The light device according to Claim 5, further containing a housing unit.

7. The light device according to Claim 6, further comprising a switch within said housing unit.

8. The light device according to Claim 6, wherein said ultraviolet light source are light emitting diodes and are contained within said housing and said additional light source is an incandescent or fluorescent bulb.

9. The light device according to Claim 7, wherein said switch is selected from the group consisting of electric eye, infrared, a movement sensor, manual, automatic, hardwired, prĪ²- or semi-automatic and after market.

10. The light device according to Claim 6, further comprising a switch outside of said housing unit; wherein said switch is selected from the group consisting of electric eye, infrared, a movement sensor, manual, automatic, hardwired, pre- or semi-automatic and after market.

11. The light device according to Claim 5, wherein said ultraviolet light source is a circular outer bulb and said additional light source is a circular inner bulb.

12. The light device according to Claim 5, wherein said ultraviolet light source is a circular inner bulb and said additional light source is a circular outer bulb.

13. The light device according to Claim 5, wherein said additional light source is a circular outer bulb and ultraviolet light emitting diodes are within the center space of said circular bulb.

14. The light device according to Claim 5, further comprising a female receptacle in the center of the device.

15. The light device according to Claim 14, wherein said ultraviolet light source is a circular outer bulb and an incandescent bulb is screwed into said receptacle.

16.The light device according to Claim 5, further comprising at least two ultraviolet light sources and/or at least two additional light sources.

17. The light device according to Claim 5, further comprising a cover.

18. The light device according to Claim 5, further comprising strip or rope housing, wherein said ultraviolet light source and said additional light source are secured along this housing.

19. A process for sterilizing and cleansing a surface comprising:
providing a light device comprised of an ultraviolet light source and an additional light source; wherein said additional light source is selected from the group consisting of a white light fluorescent and incandescent light;
activating the ultraviolet light source to sterilize and cleanse the surface in view, while the additional light source is deactivated;
deactivating the ultraviolet light source which initializes the additional light source for conventional uses.

20. A system for sterilizing and cleansing a surface comprising:
a light device comprised of an ultraviolet light source and an additional light source; wherein said additional light source is selected from the group consisting of a white light fluorescent and incandescent light; and a switch selected from the group consisting of infrared, movement, electric eye, manual, contact switches, auto or semi-automatic, hard wired, pre- and after market versions;
wherein said switch controls the activation and deactivation of the ultraviolet light source and the additional light source such that they are not both on at the same time.

21. A light device comprised of an ultraviolet light source secured along a housing consisting of either a tape strip or rope.

22. The light device according to Claim 22, further comprising an additional light source selected from the group consisting of a white light fluorescent and incandescent light.
