UV-based cleaner cleans the unseen
It’s difficult enough to confront an enemy that is clearly visible; but if it’s unseen and equally dangerous, that poses problems.
Frequent and treacherous enemies that threaten the health and well-being of people—and largely unseen by the naked eye—are dust mites and other forms allergens or deadly microorganisms usually found in fabrics like curtains, beddings and linen, and of course in sofas, futons, pillows and baby cribs, the last an utmost concern since it is used by babies. Of course there are others like fungus, molds and mildew, salmonella and the dreaded and deadlier E. Coli.
Dust mites, in particular, are the most common. They are the types of creatures unseen or too-small-to-see without a microscope or magnifying glass. Belonging to the “arachnid” type, which includes spiders, scorpions or even ticks, they usually feed on dead skin or even leftover food from those weekend DVD marathons with the family (popcorn, chips, etc.) on the sofa or even beds and other furniture. However, it’s not the dust mites that actually wreak havoc on our health but their droppings. Most people develop severe allergies like itchy red lumps when they come in contact with dust mite droppings, or even severe difficulty in breathing or asthma attacks once dust laden with dust mite droppings is inhaled.
The good news, however, is that a new device was invented to fight off these dangerous elements through the use of “UVC,” a type of ultraviolet rays from the sun that are germicidal in nature, meaning it can kill various bacteria upon exposure even for a few seconds. And this is the type of technology used by a pioneering vacuum cleaner, the Raycop UVC Anti-Allergy cleaner.
Using UVC light technology patterned after the discovery of Dutch scientist Niels Ryberg Finsen, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine back in 1903 for his “contribution to the treatment of diseases, especially lupus vulgaris, with ‘concentrated light radiation,’” Raycop UVC Anti-Allergy vacuum cleaners is able to kill 99% of bacteria and kills almost 94% of dust mites, and even the fearsome H1N1 Influenza A virus that threatened the country a few years back.
The process of eliminating bacteria and other allergens employed by the Raycop UVC Anti-Allergy cleaner is through its patented 3-step allergy care system: vibrating, sterilizing and double-filtering.
The Vibrating Pad shakes particles and dust mites away from mattresses, pillows and other fabrics and linens by vibrating a whopping 3,600 times per minute, making sure that even the most stubborn dust mites are removed.
This is followed by the UVC Sterilization lamp that kills bacteria to leave surfaces germ-free. Based on lamp technology courtesy of Philips and Sankyo, the lamp uses a highly efficient and effective 253.7 nanometer wavelength, the same germicidal ultraviolet wavelength used in hospitals, clinics and laboratories for more than 60 years now.
Finally, Raycop uses a cartridge filter that captures the larger particles and traps them so they cannot go back to the room and helps extend the life of the Micro Allergy Filter, which is the one that traps the smaller particles to make sure they do not escape as well.
Bukang Sems Co., Ltd. Health and Home Appliances Division, makers of Raycop, through its President, Sung Jin Lee, believes that the compact and convenient Raycop UVC Anti-Allergy Cleaner is a perfect fit for Filipino homes today, particularly for families who wish to make sure that the air they breathe is clean and safe for their entire household.
“We have the product that can help Filipinos clean the air, especially in their homes or even their offices. It has been our goal to make lives of people around the world to become better through our award-winning appliances, and we want Filipinos to benefit from our products as well,” declares Sung Jin Lee, President of Bukang Sems Co. Ltd.’s Health and Home Appliances Division.
