Supporting an Allergen Free Home by Robin Gorman Newman

It’s been some time since I’ve blogged about a product, but I couldn’t resist when I was presented with this opportunity.

In recent years, I’ve developed seasonal allergies along with a sensitivity to dust, so I’ve become extremely conscious of keeping our home as clear as possible of allergens.  It is impossible to reach a level of perfection, but having a vacuum cleaner that helps do the job is a vital part of the process.

I was not familiar with ZeroG Vacuums when they approached me, but I have since become a fan. What caught my eye in particular is their new antimicrobial bag.

The designers and suppliers of a weightless vacuum system, they recently launched three-ply antimicrobial vacuum bags custom made to fit its units.

The outer layer of the bag is made up of a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) 13 filter, which is able to trap the majority of pollen, bacteria, and fungal spores. The innermost layer of the bag consists of the same material, doubling its potential effectiveness. The bag’s middle layer is infused with Silver Ion. Silver Ion is able to inhibit the growth of over 800 germs, mold, and bacteria, including such dangers as E-Coli, Staphylococcus Aureus, and Candida Alicans.

Test results confirm that after the use of ZeroG’s antimicrobial vacuum bags, the air was left 99% cleaner.  I love this!  I wish the space to house the bag was a bit larger in the vacuum….but other than that, this machine rocks!  It’s easy to carry and comes with an array of attachments, including having a long reach which helps to get to the back of shelves, etc.

The company was founded on their desire to impact the industry with their floating canister vacuum. Its slick-looking white canister literally hovers above the ground rather than rolling on wheels, preventing it from getting stuck on corners or on the edges of furniture and making it easy to pull along.  It can be used on any surface and is lightweight and easy to carry.  It is a powerful machine, and most importantly, it makes me feel good about maintaining a clean, breathable home for my family, as my son suffers from seasonal and dust allergies as well.  My son thinks it has a bit of a space-age look, which at least initially, inspired him to give it a whirl.  I don’t expect him to become a vacuum regular, but his desire to pitch in was good while it lasted.

Note: I was provided with a vacuum for review purposes, but my opinion is my own.
