I think it was the frog on the carpet story that drove Oreck over the edge. When they offered me the Halo Vacuum to review, their words were “you need to keep your family healthy!”….hmmmmm…
When I researched exactly what I was getting I was blown away! You may not realize that floors and carpets harbor more germs and bacteria than anyplace in your home. That`s why Oreck introduced the Oreck Halo, the world`s only upright vacuum that uses ultraviolet light to clean and kill germs, bacteria, viruses, allergens and mold.
How It Works
The Oreck Halo uses proprietary UV-C technology – the same technology that
safely and effectively disinfects drinking water and sterilizes operating rooms
– to eliminate many of the harmful things you can`t see.
A high-powered UV-C bulb is housed in a patented light chamber with a durable
quartz glass exterior, and independent tests prove this UV-C light kills more
than 99 percent of many common germs it comes in contact with.
(had super cool video but man it was loud…may redo with camera a weeee bit further away from the machine.)
According to Oreck:
“Every time we enter our homes, we track in germs, bacteria and viruses from
outside,” said David Oreck, Founder of the Oreck Corporation. “Think about when
you come home from work, or when the kids come in all dirty after playing
outside. What about the dog digging in the neighbor`s trash?”
“The Oreck Halo represents the future of home hygiene. It gives you peace of
mind knowing that you`re doing all you can to provide a clean and healthier
environment for your entire family.”
The Oreck Halo has two high-powered motors. One drives the “brushroll” that fluffs the carpet’s nap while the other delivers maximum suction and pickup, which means the dirt and germs it kills are quickly trapped inside the HEPA 13 filter bag for safe removal. The bag is so tightly woven that dead germs stay inside, and Oreck’s patented Sani-Seal tab prevents them from escaping when emptied.
An ordinary vacuum may pick up some germs, but they may still be alive inside the bag or canister. When emptied, it’s possible those germs are transported from one part of the house to another.
This is a sturdy, solid upright with all the necessary attachments. It moves easily, has a long cord, and they UV lights could be the coolest feature yet!
This vacuum is available for $599!
Did I mention I have one to give away?
