As the pandemic continues, our homes have become our sanctuary and refuge. More than ever, we realize the value of keeping our household free from harmful bacteria and viruses. Gone are the days when regular cleaning and disinfecting are enough to make us feel safe.

Fortunately, the power of smart technology has allowed us to create a safer home environment. Here are three high-tech tools that can help protect you and your family from unseen health threats.

Air Purifier

Air purifiers help eliminate dust, odor, smoke, pollen and other irritants. According to the CDC, quality air purifiers can reduce airborne contaminants and viruses in confined spaces.

If you want a high-performance device that can capture at least 99.97 % of particles including airborne pathogens, look for air purifiers that use a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter.

Air purifiers have come a long way from merely clearing away airborne germs and viruses. As shown by these products, they can also perform other functions while being highly user-friendly:

  • EnviroKlenz uses HEPA filters, as well as UVC bulbs and a patented technology that break down and destroy bacteria, viruses, and other harmful particulates in the air.

  • Coway Airmega IconS is the first air purifier with a wireless charging station. It is stylish and compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

  • The Dyson Purifier Cool TP09 is not just an air purifier, but also works as a cooling fan. The upgraded model can detect and destroy formaldehyde from your carpets and rugs.

Dry-cleaning closet

Reduce your trips to the dry cleaners with this new breed of closet, which not only stores but also dry-cleans your clothes. The innovative dry-cleaning closet steams, deodorizes, and sanitizes clothes and other items while clearing away dust, odors, and up to 99% of germs and bacteria.

This modern AirDresser refreshes clothing with steam power and relaxes light wrinkles. You can even remotely control the closet right from your phone.

The closet also comes with pre-programmed cycles for different types of clothes. You can control, monitor, and select the modes of cleaning. For clothes you don’t wash after every use, just put them in the closet and they’ll come out as fresh and clean as new.

UV clean phone sanitizer

Although it has been found that the chances of transmitting the COVID-19 virus via surfaces is low, it is still a risk that you should protect yourself from.

Given that smartphones are high-touch devices that are frequently used by the family, it’s only sensible to pay extra attention to sanitizing it. According to a study done by the University of Arizona, a smartphone picks up ten times more germs and bacteria than a toilet seat.

One way to get rid of disease-carrying particulates on cellphones is via UV lighting, which is incorporated in several easy to use gadgets out in the market. Products like CASETiFY phone cases, Niels Ryberg Premium UVC Sterilizer, and HoMedics UV Clean Portable Sanitizer Case use UV technology to sterilize your smartphone and other gadgets fast.
