We’re offering 10% off sitewide for purchases over $150 (exclusions apply) and up to $150 off select Dyson heaters and vacuum cleaners. Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll see on sale this Cyber Monday:

10% Off Sitewide

All of these items are useful items for people on your holiday list, so take advantage by entering the coupon code THANKS14 at checkout.

20% Off Space Heaters

Space Heaters can be a life saver this time of year. Who doesn’t have a room that just won’t warm up?  Adding a space heater can offer instant relief to those spaces. Some people also add one to the rooms they use most often and turn their thermostat down a few degrees–which can help save energy.

Regardless of why you may need one, we’ve got 20% off all space heaters by DeLonghi, Honeywell, Soleus, and Sunpentown. Many of the models we have on sale were recently named as top picks by a top consumer reporting agency.

DeLonghi space heaters are known for offering quiet, direct heat. Their lightweight panel heater radiates heat directly in front of it and can be hung on a wall to save floor space. Consider an oil-filled radiator model for consistent, quiet heat across an entire room. Most models can be wheeled into place, feature digital controls, multiple heat settings, and various other top features.

The Delonghi TRN0812T was recently recognized by a top consumer reporting agency for its quiet and effective operation. This simple-to-use model has a GFCI plug to reduce shock, which makes it common for bathrooms and other hazardous areas, and also includes a timer for programming operation. All DeLonghi models are priced at 20% off, so now is a great time to scoop one up.

Honeywell space heaters are known for their energy-saving features and efficient heat. The Honeywell HZ-980 was just named a “Best Buy” by a top consumer reporting agency. This powerful infrared heater blends in just about anywhere and can be personalized to match your comfort needs. Its adjustable design makes it good for heating small rooms or adding supplemental heat to spaces up to 1,000 square feet.

Check out all of Honeywell’s compact room heaters; they’re customer favorites and proven to work well on chilly winter nights.

$150 Off Select Dyson Heaters and Vacuums

DysonResized

Dyson is known worldwide for manufacturing top-quality products with advanced technology. They have a broad range of vacuum options, from handheld models to powerful bagless uprights. For example, Dyson stick vacuums are ideal for moms who need to quickly clean up around kitchens and living rooms.

Consider a Dyson upright for some of the strongest suction on the market and simple bagless bin-emptying. They dig into any type of carpet and come with tools to clean even the tightest space.

Lastly, Dyson’s heater fan is truly one-of-a-kind. It has 10 speeds, bladeless technology, and offers projected long term heat. Also recommended by a top consumer reporting agency, the Dyson AM05 can also be used as a fan during summer months.

Other Cyber Monday deals include 20% off select humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and allergy bedding. Be sure to check out our deals page to see a full list of our Cyber Monday deals. It’s the best time to prepare for the cold holiday season ahead and get a useful product for your home at a discounted price.

Mold: Evicting the Unwelcome Houseguest

Posted by Ivey on September 10th, 2012

Woman Cleaning MoldHave you noticed a strange pungent odor in your home lately? Perhaps you have been coughing, sneezing, or suffering from other allergy-related symptoms and can’t find the trigger? These can all be signs that your home has a mold problem. Before you condemn your home and call a demolition crew, here are a few tips for identifying a mold problem, treating it, and avoiding future issues.

Most mold experts agree that small amounts of mold are present in every home. However, large amounts of mold can cause hay fever symptoms and be particularly irritating to people with allergies, immune suppression, and asthma, according to the CDC.

What NOT to Clean with Steam Cleaners

Posted by Vivian on July 18th, 2012

what not to steam cleanSteam cleaners are wonderful, since they can clean just about anything without the use of harsh chemicals – car exteriors, sealed hardwood floors, leather upholstery, most kitchen appliances, windows, mirrors, and showers.

There are some surfaces, however, that aren’t ideal for steam cleaners.

Let’s look at how steam cleaners work. Essentially, they turn ordinary tap water into deep-cleaning steam vapor. They do this with heat – lots of it. In order to kill germs, they need to heat water to at least 225 degrees F. In fact, the most powerful steam cleaners, like Ladybug steam cleaners, heat the water as high as 325 degrees F.

10 Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Air Quality

Posted by Allison on March 19th, 2012

Spring Cleaning Cleaning SuppliesThe beginning of spring is the one time of year that I get super jazzed about cleaning, so I always make sure to take it seriously. I leave no blind un-dusted and no pillow cover un-washed. Dust, dirt and allergens don’t stand a chance in my home.

This spring, you owe it to yourself to enjoy a clean that’s more than dirt-deep. I’m talking allergen-deep. Dust mite-deep. Get down to the nitty gritty and really tackle what’s lurking in your home’s air. With the help of these 10 spring cleaning tips, you can do it without making yourself crazy.

1. Make a schedule. If you have a basement, start there – this room usually has the worst air quality. The next day, tackle germs and bacteria in the bathroom. Move onto the living room on day three, and so on. Even if you live in a 600 square foot apartment like mine, this method helps you stay focused on the task at hand and avoid becoming overwhelmed with the amount of work ahead of you.

Typical household cleaners often contain harsh toxic chemicals that can aggravate allergies and ultimately cause health complications. Steam cleaners use pure vapor steam to naturally disinfect and deodorize counter tops, windows, appliances, and upholstery.

Ladybug Steam Cleaner Takes On A Dirty Apartment

Posted by Allison on January 20th, 2012

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to start cleaning my dog’s bed with my Ladybug Steam Cleaner. Well, we are now three weeks into the year, and Callie has enjoyed a deliciously fresh, steam cleaned doggie bed every night.

My Ladybug Tekno 2350 is incredibly powerful, easy to use, and really makes me feel like I’m creating a healthier environment for my dog and myself. And as any Ladybug owner will tell you, once you whip out your trusty cleaning friend, it’s hard to put it away.

Steam Cleaners Offer Chemical-Free Bed Bug Removal

Posted by Diamond on October 7th, 2011

Chemical-Free Bed Bug TreatmentBed bugs – they’re creepy, crawly, and have taken over homes across America over the last few years. Dealing with a bed bug infestation is a downright nuisance that can literally drive you crazy, so it’s no surprise that people are willing to do whatever it takes to rid their homes of these bloodsucking pests right away. With such hysteria over the current bed bug epidemic, many Americans are taking drastic measures to eliminate the problem, including fumigating their homes to extreme degrees.

However, a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that frequent and excessive applications of chemical products to kill bed bugs can be more hazardous to your health than the effects of a bed bug infestation. A healthier alternative for effective bed bug remediation, steam cleaners are a chemical-free way to get rid of bed bugs naturally.

Steam Cleaners: The Healthy Way to Clean

Posted by Diamond on September 9th, 2011

Steam CleanerThe only thing more disgusting than walking on a grimy floor is “cleaning” it with the same old dirty mop and filthy pail of water. Sure the bucket of water starts out smelling fresh and looking soapy, but by the time you reach the middle of the floor, what was once a bucket of fresh suds has become a cold, gray bacteria fest. And to think we actually dip a spongy mop into that “water” and smear it all over our tile or hardwood floors. Yuck!

It’s ok, we’re all guilty. But there is a better way. A chemical-free, eco-conscious, allergy- and asthma-friendly way. More hygienic than a traditional floor mop and more cost-effective and durable than disposable Swiffer sweepers, a steam cleaner is a healthy way to truly clean your floors of dirt and grime without releasing pollutants from chemical detergents into your indoor environment.

Are You Sharing Your Bed with Bedbugs?

Posted by Ivey on July 30th, 2010

Bedbugs Can Be Found in Hotel Beds“Sleep tight. Don’t let the bedbugs bite.” This was a simple phrase that my grandmother would say to me each night before I went to sleep. I always thought of it as a sweet bedtime ritual—certainly not a safety warning! With stores like Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch closing due to bedbug infestastions as well as growing residential bedbug complaints, residents of New York City and other major urban areas might not share this sentiment.

New York City residents are not alone in their bedbug war. At a 2009 bedbug conference, an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) spokesperson, Dale Kemery, reported that bedbug infestation had tripled in the United States since 2005.

Cockroaches Trigger Allergies and Asthma

Posted by Ivey on February 5th, 2010

Eliminate Food Sources to Avoid CockroachesCockroaches. They’re creepy, crawly — and a leading cause of allergies and asthma!

Cockroach allergens are found in the feces, saliva, and body parts of the insects. They cause allergy symptoms, such as irritated skin, itchy eyes and nose, scratchy throat, and can exacerbate asthma conditions. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, there is a correlation between exposure to cockroach allergens and the development of asthma in children.
