GRAND RAPIDS, MI, 8/20/09 – PRNewswire –– Health-conscious individuals may be surprised
to learn that
their homes may not be as healthy as they think. Nearly 100,000 dust mites can live in just one square yard of carpet.
Because carpet, furniture and other materials can act as reservoirs for allergens in the home, BISSELL Homecare, Inc., the
floor–care innovator and international manufacturer of home–cleaning products, today unveils its new Healthy Home
Vacuum™ and ProHeat 2X® Healthy Home™ deep cleaner. The product line brings a powerful and fresh approach to
cleaning, offering a vacuum that locks in 100 percent of captured allergens and a deep cleaner that removes two times more
embedded allergen plus more bacteria and dust mites than ordinary vacuuming alone.
"Health–conscious consumers are often surprised to know their homes aren't as clean as they may think," says Jim
Krzeminski, BISSELL's executive vice–president and chief customer officer. "That's why we're offering the Healthy Home
Vacuum and ProHeat 2X Healthy Home to help Americans easily maintain a healthier and worry–free environment for their
and loved ones."
In fact, the air in homes can contain 70 percent as much pollen as outdoor air, and nearly 100,000 dust mites can live in
one square yard of carpet. Not to mention, eight in 10 American homes have dust mites, and six in 10 American homes –
even those without pets – have cat or dog dander, according to the Allergy and Asthma Foundation.
Whereas some vacuums simply redistribute these allergens, the Healthy Home Vacuum ($249.99) is the only unit on the market
to offer the Airetight® HEPA filtration system to trap 100 percent of allergens like dust mites, ragweed, pollen and pet
dander and prevent them from escaping back into the room via the exhaust air. Plus, its nine cyclones and two motors provide
non–stop suction to pull out embedded dirt for a deep–down clean. As the only bagless upright vacuum with
built–in Microban® antimicrobial product protection, it effortlessly fights the growth of odor–causing
bacteria, mold and mildew within the machine. The Healthy Home Vacuum also boasts a lifetime belt and a five–year
In addition to vacuuming , deep cleaning is an essential step to loosen and remove deep–down dirt, allergens and
bacteria from carpets and rugs. The ProHeat 2X Healthy Home ($299.99) thoroughly deep cleans carpet, removing two times more
embedded allergen plus more bacteria and dust mites than ordinary vacuuming alone. With 12 cleaning rows, the DirtLifter®
PowerBrushes are powerful enough to eliminate deep–down dirt, yet gentle enough to groom carpet for professional style
results. Plus, as the only brand with a patented built–in heater, it continuously heats tap water up to 25 degrees for
maximum cleaning. And, the earth–friendly formulas are specially designed to help remove dust mite waste, pet and
The product's CleanShot® feature allows for heavy–duty spot cleaning at the push of a button. And the Dry
Aire™ system uses heated air to dry carpet as the unit cleans. In addition, using the unit with BISSELL machine
formulas every year ensures a Scotchgard™ protector warranty remains in effect, a claim no other home deep cleaning
system can make. What's more, just like its vacuum counterpart, the ProHeat 2X Healthy Home provides peace of mind with
Microban antimicrobial product protection.
The units will be available in September at most major retailers.
