WIN - Oreck Halo Flash Handheld Vacuum
More of us probably wipe off the grocery cart with disinfectant wipes than deal with what might be accumulating on our couch or mattress. According to a recent survey, less than half of adults have tried to kill germs on their furniture or mattresses. Now, Oreck introduces a new handheld device that kills germs on these surfaces without using chemicals.
This month, Oreck debuts the Oreck Halo Flash, the newest vacuum that uses UV-C light to kill germs on mattresses, upholstered furniture, diaper pads, yoga mats … the surfaces we touch most but rarely disinfect.

The New Oreck Halo Flash is Oreck's most powerful handheld canister vacuum ever, and the Flash attachment works at the speed you vacuum. Just vacuum like you normally would, and powerful UV-C light effectively reduces germs, bacteria, mold and viruses. Dirt and microbes found on all kinds of above-the-floor surfaces – like upholstery, tabletops, and mattresses - are quickly trapped in HEPA filter bags which capture 99.95% of particles down to 0.3 microns. The Flash attachment kills the bugs, and the vac sucks them up!
Patented virus-killing UV-C light chamber: the same light used in hospitals.

It’s proven to kill many germs, bacteria, viruses, dust mite and flea eggs, and mold, without the use of chemicals.
