The RS Pro Allergen Vacuum is a compact, handheld vacuum that features a flexible, vibrating, and rotating brush along with patented RayClean Technology to effectively remove dirt, dander, hair, dust mites, pollen, and 99% of bacteria and viruses from your home.The powerful UV lamp features a wavelength calibrated to effectively eliminate over 99% of bacteria and viruses from fabric surfaces throughout your home. Because of the lamp’s power, this process requires very short exposure time. In laboratory tests, the survival rate of commonly found E-Coli and Staphylococcus bacteria was close to 0% after just 1-2 seconds of exposure. The RS Pro efficiently sanitizes surfaces with heated air up to 150°F, which has proven to be the most effective, natural way to kill dust mites thriving in your mattresses, sofas and other soft surfaces. It also utilizes a HEPA ﬁlter fitted with a fine mesh to trap and help eliminate over 99.9% of the dust mite matter, dirt, pollen and pet dander that settle on fabric surfaces. All of these particulates are common irritants for family members susceptible to allergies or asthma.
