This handheld cordless vac seems to be targeted toward owners of messy pets because not only can it be used for sucking up dry materials like pet food or dirt, but the recharging base also functions as an air sanitizer. The vacuum portion has an easy to empty dirt cup that’s lined with nano silver technology to prevent the growth of mold and odor-causing bacteria while the base apparently uses the same UV-C air sanitizing technology as hospitals do. Except that in a hospital it’s used to save lives where as in your home it will probably be used to fight the stank coming from the litter box.
The UV-C bulb in the base will last up to 5,000 hours, but if you leave it running all day and night that’s only about 208 days, or a little under 7 months before it’s time to swap in a new bulb. You can find the Hand Vac / Air Sanitizer at Solutions.com for $99.95, but I have no idea how much the replacement UV-C bulbs are.
