Every RAYCOP allergen vacuum uses patented RayClean Technology®

RAYCOP efficiently sanitizes fabric surfaces: UV light deactivates the DNA in dust mites, bacteria, pollen, mold and mildew; pulsating pads loosen dust mite matter and dirt trapped within fabrics; optimized suction eliminates particles without harming fabrics; and the HEPA filter captures 99.9% of common allergens like dust, pollen and mold.

Unlike your vacuum, which picks up the dust and debris that you can see, RAYCOP combats the potentially harmful microorganisms that you can’t see. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a single mattress may be home to as many as 10 million dust mites and a multitude of bacteria and viruses.

1. Japan Food Research Laboratories sample bacteria staphylococcus and e-coli on a petri dish and measured after exposure UV-light directly at close range. Test result 99.9% extraction rate in 2 seconds

2. Kitasato Research Center for Environmental Science tested sample virus (influenza virus type A) on a petri dish and measured after exposure UV-light directly at close range. Test result 99.9% extraction rate in 5 seconds

 3. Institute of Tokyo Environmental Allergy confirmed the HEPA filter in RAYCOP cleaners collect 99.9% dust. Result may vary depending on mode and fabric type

UV Light

RAYCOP uses a powerful UV lamp with a wavelength calibrated to effectively eliminate over 99% of bacteria from fabric surfaces throughout the home. UV light is electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths shorter than visible light. UV can be separated into various ranges, with short-wavelength UV (UVC) considered “germicidal UV.” The UV light in RAYCOP allergen vacuums is 253.7nm, which eliminates viruses and bacteria, and suppresses the movement of dust mites. UV light also alters the DNA of dust mite eggs and significantly reduces egg hatch rates.

A variety of bacteria and viruses are frequently brought back home from public places such as schools, gyms and offices. Two of the most common bacteria found living in our beds are E-Coli and Staphylococcus. Laboratory tests show that approximately 2 seconds of exposure to UV light can eliminate 99.9% of these bacteria. The H1N1 virus has also been found on mattresses and 99.9% can be eliminated after approximately 5 seconds of exposure to UV light.

Tests conducted on E-Coli, Staph and H1N1.

Vibration + Suction

The combination of suction and vibration, along with UV light, in our patented RayClean Technology® is proven to eliminate 3 times more allergens than a regular vacuum. Even though you don’t realize they are there, dust mites can be found in every corner of our home, including bedding, sofas, chairs, and even curtains. Dust mites leave behind trails of allergenic waste as they move. This waste that they produce gets trapped in your fabrics and is difficult to remove with a regular vacuum. Every RAYCOP has pulsating pads to loosen and lift particles and suction calibrated to be powerful enough to effectively remove debris and allergens from fabric surfaces yet is gentle enough to safely use on delicate fabrics without tugging or trapping the fabric. These particles also pass through a dual filtration system: larger particles are trapped in the dust box filter and microscopic particles are trapped in the HEPA filter so they can’t be released back into the air.

HEPA Filtration

RAYCOP allergen vacuums also include a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter fitted with a fine mesh to trap 99.9% of the dust mite matter, dirt, pollen and pet dander that settle on fabric surfaces. The HEPA filter traps the particles without releasing them back into the air like the exhaust of a regular vacuum does. These particles that are removed are common irritants for family members susceptible to allergies or asthma.

Research and Development

RAYCOP Research and Development continually conducts laboratory studies to better understand how to most effectively combat the hazards of live pathogens that cause allergies and asthma. This internal research led to the development of RayClean Technology®, which combines UV sterilization, vibration, suction and filtration to efficiently sanitize the places throughout the home where live pathogen populations are highly concentrated.

Third Party Test Results

RAYCOP allergen vacuums have been tested by numerous third party laboratories to verify its effectiveness against dust mites, bacteria and viruses. RAYCOP allergen vacuums have also received the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval and the SLG Certificate of Quality for house dust removal.
