I was always under the impression that my house was clean after I vacuumed. I have since learned that in my carpet lives over 100,000 dust mites per square yard. This doesn’t take into consideration the mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens that are living in there either. I learned about this fact when I discovered the creation of a new type of vacuum cleaner for tile floors. It is called the Halo UVX Ultraviolet Vacuum. Here is how it works to more than clean your critter filled carpets:
The question arises, how does one get rid of all the dust mites and other critters that are living in the carpet? Well for over 60 years hospitals have been using an ultraviolet light to kill these invisible pests. So it only makes sense to develop an Ultraviolet light that can be used with a vacuum.
I learned that there are three types of ultraviolet lights. U-VA and U-VB which we know comes from the sun. It’s what creates our tan (or sometimes sunburn). The third ultraviolet light is called U-VA C. This light attacks the very DNA of the pests that live in your carpet, killing their ability to multiply or reproduce. Dr. Glenn Needham, Ph.D, a professor of entomology and acarology said, “Our research shows that as little as one second of UV-C exposure results in the death of the American house mite eggs”.
What benefit will your house have from this kind of vacuuming? Well for number one you will be getting rid of so many allergens that you just may find you are not suffering from allergies anymore. The vacuum’s motto is “Cleans what you see, kills what you can’t.” Getting as many germs that you can’t see out of your house should be a priority. I mean how many of us have switched to those Clorox or Lysol disinfecting wipes once we learned about all the germs a sponge carries? It’s no different here. What I’m trying to say is you need the best vacuum for tile floors to get all the dust and then clean the tiles after to kill the germs The bottom line is we can keep our families healthier by spending a few extra dollars for a vacuum that can kill the germs living in our home.
The Halo UVX Ultraviolet Vacuum currently sells for $399.99. It has ultraviolet light technology, HEPA filtration, telescoping handle, 31′ power cord, powerful gear-driven system (no belts to change), it is lightweight with powerful suction, electronic height adjuster, and includes a package of 5 replacement bags. After that replacement bags cost $7.99 per pack.
I think the inventor of this vacuum is a genius. I would definitely recommend you check out the website and visit the Halo Family Blog. Tons of great information can be found there.
