Eureka® is introducing two vacuums that provide deep cleaning power just in time for spring cleaning. AirSpeed® Pet and AirSpeed® Gold – both of which clean carpets better than the leading uprights* – boast innovative AirSpeed Technology. Unlike most other vacuums, AirSpeed Technology uses two smooth tubes for limited bends and turns, allowing more air to pass through the vacuum. The direct air path from floor to cup decreases the distance for dirt to travel, which increases the amount of airflow for powerful suction.
“Superior carpet cleaning is important to everyone – but we know from watching our customers clean that they also need specific tools and attachments to address their personal cleaning challenges,” said Allison Duy, director of marketing communications for Eureka. “With AirSpeed Pet and AirSpeed Gold, we are able to offer the best of both worlds – the powerful, deep cleaning of our AirSpeed technology and the specialized tools for cleaning up after pets or in hard-to-reach areas, just in time for the busy spring cleaning season.”
An Ally for Cleaning Up After Furry Friends
Designed to help pet owners tackle their two biggest cleaning challenges – hair and odor – AirSpeed Pet features the Eureka-exclusive PET Power Paw® to easily remove pet hair from carpet and upholstery. AirSpeed Pet’s HEPA charcoal filter absorbs pet odor and reduces allergens for a cleaner home.
The Gold Standard For Suction Power
With a hose, wand and cord combination offering an extended 46 feet of quicker, easier cleaning, AirSpeed Gold cleans carpets better than Dyson DC14, DC17 and DC25 at one-third the price!** AirSpeed Gold’s stair and upholstery brush provides added cleaning power by removing dust, allergens and pet hair from furniture backs and stair risers, and a HEPA filter captures 99.97 percent of dust and allergens for a cleaner home.
Both units also boast Eureka’s Whirlwind Cyclonic Technology, which maintains suction power and separates larger debris from fine dust;*** an easy-empty, bottom-release dust cup for no-mess emptying; and on-board tools to clean hard-to-reach areas.
“With these new AirSpeed models, we are able to meet the specific cleaning needs of our customers, delivering remarkable cleaning power, convenient tools and an easy-to-use design – all in an affordable package,” said Duy.
The Eureka AirSpeed Gold is available for $129.99 at Lowe’s, Best Buy, Kmart, Kohl’s, Sears and amazon.com, while AirSpeed Pet retails for $129.99 and is available exclusively at Target.
