As we find ourselves spending more and more time indoors, attention has turned worldwide to solutions that can help us keep our homes clean as easily as possible. From removing particulate matter from any room to keeping your clothes and bedcovers free of unwanted mites, Samsung’s home appliances1 are capable of keeping every corner of your house free of dust and allergens. So how can you make the most out of these innovative devices? Read on to see how you can easily incorporate them into your daily routine.
Refresh Your Garments With AirDresser
Washing your hands after coming home is a key part of best-practice hygiene, but you may still be concerned about the dust, bacteria, viruses and allergens that can linger on clothes after going outdoors. Sanitizing your clothes as soon as you get home is a surefire way to ensure peace of mind.
Samsung’s AirDresser is an easy way to freshen up garments that are difficult to wash on a regular basis, including coats, padded jackets, and suits. The AirDresser’s Jet Air and Air Hangers blast powerful gusts of air through your garments to thoroughly clean them inside and out. For an extra-thorough clean, you can also use the AirDresser’s Sanitize cycle with JetSteam. The technology has been certified by Intertek to remove 99.9% of bacteria from garments,2 and JetSteam has also been given the Seal of Approval by the British Allergy Foundation (BAF) for being able to effectively reduce house dust mites, fungi, and bacteria-related allergens.3 Reduce any lingering germs with the AirDresser’s internal temperature of up to 70°C (around 160°F).
Remove Ingrained Dirt With Samsung Washers
For those deep-seated germs or mites in your clothing, Samsung’s washing machines have a range of options to keep any fabric fresh.
First, Samsung washers use steam to fight off any bacteria clinging to clothes. The Hygiene Steam cycle of Samsung washing machines has been awarded the BAF’s seal of approval for its effective reduction of house dust mites, cat and dog dander, grass pollen and fungi allergens.4 Intertek has certified this cycle to remove 99.9% of bacteria,5 and it has also been certified by SMEC and CHEARI in China to remove more than 99.99% of bacteria.6
For a washing machine to be at peak performance, keeping the tub fresh at all times is essential. The Eco Drum Clean+ cycle in Samsung washers has been certified by Intertek to remove more than 99.9% of biofilm (bacterial buildup) on Samsung washers’ tub-insert carriers. For models with a Self Clean+ function, ultra-intense jets of high-temperature water will remove 99% of bacteria7 that can accumulate inside the drum. This built-in feature of the washing machine also removes the need for users to buy cleaning agents for utmost practicality and convenience.
Keep Dishes Safely Sterilized With a Samsung Dishwasher
Dishes, cups and other utensils come into direct contact with your mouth, meaning that it is imperative to keep them clean and hygienic after every use. With a Samsung dishwasher, you can harness the sterilization power of water at a temperature of 70°C (around 160°F), the optimal temperature to kill any lingering bacteria or viruses, when washing your dishes – and all without any plastic deformation. Intense vertical jets blast fresh tap water for a more sanitary clean. The Sanitize option in certain models8 has been certified according to NSF Standard 184 by Intertek to eliminate 99.99% of lingering food bacteria to put your mind at ease.
Breathe Easier With Clean, Filtered Air
To take care of air quality inside the home, Samsung’s Cube Air Purifier is the perfect solution. Its True HEPA filter can collect 99.97% of 0.3㎛(micrometer)-sized9 nano-particulate matters, some of the trickiest particles to catch, before they have a chance to circulate in your home. Furthermore, the Cube Air Purifier can effectively remove pollen and other ultrafine particles that cause respiratory diseases or allergies and also helps remove numerous kinds of odors and harmful gases. The Cube has been independently certified as being asthma & allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and AHAM Verifide so you can be sure to breathe freely.
Samsung’s Wind-Free air conditioners also do their part in keeping the air hygienic in addition to keeping the temperature cool without unpleasant drafts or noise. The Wind-Free air conditioner is able to filter up to 99.9% of viruses and bacteria that pass through its Tri-Care Filter, as verified by Intertek.10
Catch Every Last Particle With the Samsung Jet
The Samsung Jet, Samsung’s premium cordless vacuum cleaner, features intense suction power of up to 200W11 for deep cleaning. As well as removing dust, the Samsung Jet also catches miniscule particles such as pollen, mold and pet dander to help you keep your floors, surfaces and air free of unwanted particulates.
Another unique benefit of using the Samsung Jet is that the entire vacuuming process, from start to finish, can be undertaken without mess. The Samsung Jet features an ultrafine dust filter12 that catches 99.999% of micro dust, meaning that dust will not escape back out into the air once trapped. The vacuum is also equipped with a Clean Station that keeps dust from being released back into the air during the device cleaning process.
All you need to do is place the vacuum’s dustbin on top of the Clean Station, where Air Pulse technology uses internal air pressure to empty the dustbin. Thanks to this innovative technology, the number of particles that conventionally escape back into the air during the emptying process is reduced by over 400 times.13
