Not worth the money The Germ Guardian Light Sweep is a piece of Chinese junk. Actually the device has some pretty good engineering. The belt driven agitator does a pretty good job of picking stuff up. It bogs down a little on carpet and has to be cleaned if you got somebody in the house with long hair. It even has a safety switch which prevents dummys from looking at the light unless they turn it upside down, turn on the power switch and then depress the safety switch. There are four led headlights which is cute but a waste of power unless you like to vacuum in the dark. The rechargeable battery allowed me to vaccum most of our 2300 sq. ft. house before it needed recharging. The dust container is made of flimsy plastic and a pain to get apart for emptying. I see that breaking first
The problem with this thing is that it was made as cheaply as possible and will not last long. It was made in China and companies like Germ Guardian just stick their name on it. I know of another company that has their name on it and charges 100 bucks for it.
I went to the Germ Guardian web site to look for support like replacement parts such as battery, brush roller, brush roller drive belt and dust container. Guess what? They no longer carry this thing and they didn't bother to respond to my three emails. That is certainly not encouraging. So when this thing breaks, and it won't be long, there goes 50 bucks.
This uv-c light concept in a vacuum cleaner is a new concept. The only other company that puts out a real vacuum with a uv-c light is the Halo for 500 bucks. And that vac is overpriced and, from what I can see, is cheaply made in my opinion. Also their repair part replacement availability is weak. They told me they were working on that department. I would avoid both devices as money is a factor. Being a janitor for 20 years and having owned numerous commercial vacuums I know what I'm talking about.
