This Handheld, Purifying Vacuum Is an Allergy Sufferer’s Dream Come True
‘Tis the season to print off some ambitious spring cleaning checklists, tackle those cluttered closets, and deep clean everything that’s fallen in between the couch cushions after a long winter of Netflix binges. But what about everything that’s still living inside your cushions, curtains, and carpet? Yep, dust mites and allergens are real, and they require something a little stronger than your old vacuum. Fortunately, RAYCOP — the top-selling line of home surface and fabric purification products in Japan — is now available for the first time in the United States. The two latest models, the RAYCOP RS2 and the RAYCOP LITE, are designed to clean and sanitize every square inch of where your family lives, sleeps, and eats.
Designed and developed by a physician, RAYCOP is the dustbuster that’s three times more effective at cleaning up allergens than your traditional vacuum cleaner. So just how does it work? The high-tech cleaning tool uses HEPA filters and UV light penetration to help you breathe deeper (and healthier!).
In addition to ultraviolet (UV) light technology, RAYCOP’s RS2 and LITE, $350 and $190 respectively, use pulsation pads, optimized suction, and high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration to collect and destroy harmful allergens, pollen, bacteria, and dust mites. In two seconds, the UV light removes 99.9 percent of bacteria. In five seconds, 99.9 percent of viruses are gone, leaving your home clean AND safe.
The RAYCOP also saves water and energy so you can purify all your fabrics without running multiple loads of laundry, or even hiring a professional for hard-to-clean pieces like drapes and decorative pillows. Whether you’re an allergy sufferer, pet parent, or just want to breathe a little easier this spring, you may want to consider purchasing the device (AKA your new cleaning BFF).
