Can a UV-C light bulb ruin a tv screen?

I have a 30w 120v UV-C bulb in my living room. I have it to clean the air, and also kill mold on the soil of my indoor plants. My tv faces the lamp, which made me wonder if the bulb can bleach the tv and if I should put a blanket over it? 


I have a Sony XBR-ZD LED. Im wondering if th glare from the bulb when the tv is off will bleach the screen when its off, considering its black and glossy.

    No, it won't harm the TV.  


    I hope you are protecting your eyes from it, though.
