A Vacuum Cleaner which blows its waste into a disused room or to the outside the building to prevent us breathing in infections or allergens

Portable Vacuum Cleaners Spread Disease to the air of the room being vacuum cleaned - Remove this risk with

My vision is a reduction in disease attributable to vacuum cleaning and the launch of a series of "Good Businesses" based on budget innovation with a social conscience. 

All vacuum cleaners expel the air they suck up from the floor. This exhaust air contains contaminates which the filters within the cleaner fails to trap. Organisms such as Covid and allergens such as pollen are microscopic in size and more likely to contaminate the air we breathe in the building.

As a health professional, I realised some time ago that vacuum cleaners can spread threadworm eggs. Threadworm eggs are about 55 microns or larger. Coronavirus in a moisture droplet at about a micron or less (and bacteria and allergens) would be even more easily spread. Coronavirus without the droplet is about 0.1 micron.

Anyone who has ever seen a burst of dust from a vaccum cleaner has witnessed a failure of the cleaner's filtration and the potential to spread infection and allergens.  Not all dust is visible. "Not Visible" does not mean "Not Present".

I needed special lights including lasers to see talcum powder dust discharged from the exhaust end of the vacuum cleaner:

It is just possible to see these particles of talcum powder against diffuse white light and laser beams against a black background.

As small as 1 micron, Coronavirus on a droplet is approx 270 times smaller in than a talcum powder particle in diameter.

The floor is by far, the largest surface we have in a building and it stores contamination from animals and from the clothing and the breath of visitors, especially when the floor is carpetted. We have to stop the vacuum cleaner from discharging the waste from the floor into the air we breathe in the building. We have to put a social distance between the contaminated vacuum cleaner air and the people in the room. 

Even with brand new vacuum cleaners, we should not expect them to trap viruses as small as a micron. Damaged, wet or dislodged filters can not trap particles several 100 times this size. When we change filters or bags, we expose ourselves to contaminates including infections which may be sitting in the vacuum cleaner. Allergies are rife and now Covid is rife too as will the organism in the next pandemic be rife! Now is the time to update our vacuum cleaning practices.

Disinfect and Discharge Waste at a Social Distance.

The solution is to disinfect the contents of the floor and then discharge the waste gases remotely to the outside of the building or to a disused room which can be disinfected before use. In this way, Safervac completely avoids the inhalation of air from vacuum cleaners in the building and reduces the worry about infections and allergies. The vacuum cleaner contents are safer to empty because of the disinfection. More importantly, Safervac may well help reduce covid transmission in a property as lockdowns ease and visits increase, as well as benefit those with a dislike of dust on surfaces. Safervac may become your sole vacuum cleaner or you may decide to use it to clean periodically such as before and after a gathering of people in your home.

Support SaferVac and Future "Good" Business.

Through a pre-ordering process, this project is offering 20L Safervacs for the home and a 50Lversion for commercial use (may be substituted with a 60L capacity) . Safervacs are CE marked, with a stainless steel drum with an extra discharge hose and standard tools. People can purchase other rewards or simply offer financial support for the start of a series of "socially-responsible" businesses. The 'socially-responsible' element in this business is that I pledge to use around 25-50% net profits arising from this campaign, on property development to include an initiative to provide respite to people "down on their luck", such as the homeless,  but ready to reintegrate with society. An example is facilities in a new environment in Ireland, through which to seek external employment. Better still would be a period of work experience to allow people to build a record which is attractive to potential employers.

In the future, I intend to provide mobile shower facilities for the homeless, rather than have another case of a person jumping in the river in distress over personal hygiene.
