They say that spring cleaning is good for the soul, not to mention good for your health. Those words ring true now more than ever thanks to cutting-edge appliances that make it easy to rid your home of pesky pollutants, germs and allergens for spring cleaning season.
We are all doing more these days to keep our homes safe from pollutants. Three out of five respondents in a recent Samsung survey reported that they had taken steps to beef up their cleaning routines – particularly at entry points – by disinfecting packages and washing their hands and clothing as soon as they got home. In addition, nearly two-thirds of parents surveyed said they felt overwhelmed by the need to maintain a clean home.
By quickly and efficiently eliminating all kinds of invisible irritants, Samsung’s latest home appliances offer the peace of mind that comes with a clean home. Follow along as we explore how these dynamic devices allow you to annihilate allergens and keep your space spick and span.
Bust Dust with Ease With the Samsung Jet and Clean Station
The Samsung Jet cordless stick vacuum cleaner adds new meaning to the phrase “powerful clean.”
Capable of generating an industry-leading 200W of suction – more than enough power to remove dust and dander from shaggy carpets – the Samsung Jet not only helps users keep their home spotless, but can also help them breathe cleaner air. That’s because the vacuum’s best-in-class 5 Layered filtration system traps 99.999 percent of dust and allergens1 that would likely be released back into the air with other vacuums.
Lightweight and versatile, the Samsung Jet features a number of easily swappable heads that enable it to clean not just floors but also soft surfaces like mattresses and drapes, where microscopic dust and pests are known to gather. The vacuum’s telescoping shaft places virtually any surface within reach, allowing you to give everything from high corners to deep crannies a thorough clean.
The Samsung Clean Station is the perfect companion for the Samsung Jet, offering an innovative solution for emptying the vacuum’s dustbin. Roughly 400 times2 more hygienic than conventional dustbins, the Clean Station features an airtight design that automatically empties the vacuum’s canister and prevents fine dust from being released into the air.
Breathe Easier With the Whisper-Quiet Cube Air Purifier
Speaking of air, spring is a time when we should be especially mindful of airborne irritants. It’s during this season that, with pollen wafting in the air – not to mention airborne germs and viruses – and allergens like dust mites and pet dander collecting in our homes, air purifiers become all the more important.
Just how much are these indoor allergens affecting our air quality? According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, eight out of 10 people in the U.S. are exposed to dust mites at home, while six out of 10 are exposed to pet dander. On top of that, concentrations of some pollutants can be two to five times higher indoors than outdoors. Those figures become all the more alarming when you factor in the fact that, as noted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the average American spends approximately 90 percent of his or her time indoors.
Samsung’s Cube Air Purifier was designed to help users breathe easier at home. The Cube’s 3 stage True HEPA Filtration System eliminates up to 99.97 percent of ultrafine dust,3 while its Activated Carbon Deodorization Filter removes various odors and potentially harmful gases from the air. It also features the world’s first Wind-Free air purification system, which, unlike other air-purifying technologies, does not produce loud noises or cold drafts.
Spruce Up Your Spring Wardrobe With the AirDresser
As the weather begins to warm, we start to pack up our winter clothes and break out our spring and summer wardrobes. However, before placing all your coats, padded jackets and winter bedding in storage, it’s always a good idea to give those items a quick freshening up.
Now, rather than washing heavy fabrics that take ages to dry, or packing up the car for a trip to the dry cleaner, you can pop your garments into Samsung’s AirDresser to give them a quick and thorough clean. The AirDresser combines powerful steam and air to remove up to 99 percent of bacteria, dust mites and odors.4 It also relaxes light wrinkles from the inside out, and dries clothes with gentle, low heat, which reduces the risk of heat damage and shrinking.
Once you’ve finished cleaning and storing your winter wear, the AirDresser allows you to freshen up your spring and summer outfits in a flash, without putting everything in the wash.
