We first became aware of how crappy our run of the mill vacuums were thanks to James Dyson. But now it seems even his cyclone technology isn’t enough to make our homes truly clean. Halo Technologies believes you have to kill every single organism and pathogen hiding in your carpets and furniture and the best way to do that is with ultraviolet light. Their Halo vacuum includes a UV-C bulb on the underside that serves as a potent germicide killing anything exposed to the light.
…the Haloâ„¢ UVX Ultraviolet Vacuum can kill potentially dangerous micro-organisms by disrupting the DNA structure of their cells. Run the Haloâ„¢ UVX Ultraviolet Vacuum over your carpets as you would with a normal vacuum, activate the UV-C bulb with the trigger on the handle and youâ€™re instantly and safely deactivating the DNA of the dust mites, viruses, bacteria, fleas, lice and mold that had been lurking between the fibers.
Their description of disrupting the DNA of these unwanted pests sounds pretty cool but unfortunately it doesn’t make the task of vacuuming any less boring. But if you’ve got yourself a healthy dose of Howard Hughes-esque germophobia the Halo UVX Ultraviolet Vacuum is available on their website for $399.99.
