Particles the size of allergens and pollen

Pollen is commonly carried into homes on skin, hair, clothes, footwear and pets. Once inside, pollen grains and antigens accumulate in house dust, reaching a peak concentration long after pollination season.

With their microscopic size and jagged shape, pet allergens can easily stick to upholstered furniture, bedding and fabrics – and often stay in the home for months as house dust, even after the pet is gone.

Particles the size of microscopic dust and skin flakes

Moulds measure up to 100µm and can be found around kitchens, windows, and other damp areas. Their spores can irritate the nose and throat, causing shortness of breath.

Particles the size of dust mites and fine sand

House dust mites are one of the major indoor triggers for allergies and asthma. Each mite produces about 20 droppings a day, which continue to cause symptoms even after the mite has died.

Overall rating

Powerful and light

First of all I found the vacuum so light to hold. It's small yet it definitely has great power. I love that you don't have to hold a power button but instead just a press on and off, much better. The 3 power settings are good and it shows how much time you have left. The cylinder holds an awful lot of dust & dirt and the battery lasts a long time.
