Purifying and Cleaning Your Air

Greg Lawson, with Oreck, shows how a new device can do just that.

Why should you clean and purify the air in your home?
Every time you close the door to your home, you’re sealing yourself in with airborne bacteria, dust, germs, and allergens. Some you can smell. Most you can’t. Yet the more that are in your air, the more they can threaten you and your family. The EPA says indoor air may be 5 times more polluted than the air outside, and most of us spend approximately 90% of our time indoors. If you have weather-tight doors and windows, pets, or smoke, you could be adding to the problem. That’s why you need the new, whisper-quiet1 ProShield Plus Air Purifier – the easy, portable, proactive way to help clean the air in your home. It circulates the air, filters out allergens, dirt, and other airborne irritants, captures and kills viruses and germs, and breaks down odors and volatile organic compounds such as chemical fumes and aerosol vapors – with the new Helios Shield™ permanent odor absorber.

Why is the Oreck ProShield Great for Asthma and Allergy Sufferers?

The new Oreck ProShield™ Plus helps reduce those nasty particulates in homes, and actually improves air quality. At the same time, it also helps eliminate odors. That’s becuase the Oreck ProShield Plus constantly moves the air, drawing in and trapping those particulates. Its unique new Helios Shield™ UV odor control technology and exclusive Truman Cell™ captures pet dander, dust, and other harmful allergens that can drive asthma and allergy sufferers crazy

How does the exclusive ‘HeliosShield’ work?

HeliosShield utilizes UV light for superior odor control capability. It helps eliminate household odors while neutralizing potentially harmful volatile organic compounds. This type of cleaning power gives the Oreck ProShield Plus the ability to reduce many viruses, neutralize volatile organic compounds, and eliminate odors as it filters the air.

How long does it take to clean the air in a room?

The ProShield Plus is so powerful it can clean and re-circulate the air in a 12-foot by 18-foot twice per hour.

How does the Odor Absorber work?

The Odor Absorber reduces odors and chemical fumes from glue, solvents and synthetic materials. It is replaceable in the Oreck ProShield while the ProShield Plus has a permanent Odor Absorber which is activated by internal ultraviolet lights and cannot be removed.

How many speeds are there?

The Oreck ProShield Plus has three speeds: High for maximum cleaning, Medium for normal use and Silence for the quietest operation.

Will these units require expensive replacement filters?

Absolutely not. You just remove the filter, rinse, let dry, and put back in the unit. And marvel at all the nasty stuff it took out of the air!

How does the ‘capture and kill’ filtration system work?

You’ve got to move the air to clean the air and the new Oreck Air Purifiers have the advanced technology to circulate the air, capture allergens, dirt, and other airborne irritants, and kill many viruses, germs, and odors. More specifically, the patented Truman Cell positively charges particles, grabbing bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungi like a powerful magnet.

How can the ProShield help protect from H1N1 virus?

The story remains the same with ProShield and our exclusive “capture and kill” filtration system. As the air circulates through it, Oreck’s patented Truman Cell electronically charges dust, allergens, plus cold and flu causing germs and pulls them out of the air like a magnet. Many viruses are approximately .1 microns in size. ProShield is efferctive at capturing particles down to that size.
