AdvantaClean’s Top 5 Black Friday Deals for Achieving a Healthy Home
Every homeowner strives toward achieving a healthy home, to keep our loved ones safe and our investments in good shape. The problem is that sometimes achieving a healthy home can be a little … costly. Luckily, Black Friday is quickly approaching – and we’ve put together a quick-reference list for you!
Store/Brand – Kohl’s | Crane Oscillating Ceramic Tower Cool Mist Humidifier
Price – $39.99 or $29.99 after a mail-in rebate. Originally $59.99. Bonus! For every $50 spent at Kohl’s, you’ll receive $15 Kohl’s Cash.
What It’s Good for – With dry winter air on the horizon, it might be a good idea to look into a humidifier, which puts moisture back into the air, limiting the transmission of viruses like the flu, improving your sinuses, and preventing your skin from becoming dry.
Store/Brand – Walmart | Frigidaire 70-Pint Dehumidifier, FAD704DWD
Price – $219.00. Originally $269.00.
What It’s Good for – If you live in a humid climate, or have small living spaces with limited ventilation such as a bathroom, a good dehumidifier can make your home less hospitable to allergens like dustmites, mold, and mildew by reducing humidity levels. Dehumidifiers also reduce irritation to your skin and respiratory system, allowing you to breathe easier.
3. Carpet Cleaner
Store/Brand – Walmart | Bissell ProHeat Carpet Cleaner (Model #1846)
Price – $88. Originally $138.
What It’s Good for – Deep-cleaning your carpet goes a long way toward achieving a healthy home by minimizing allergens; and the Bissell ProHeat Carpet Cleaner uses heatwave technology to heat hot tap water to maximize cleaning effectiveness – scrubbing, cleaning, and grooming your carpet to remove those trapped allergens.
4. Hypoallergenic Sleeping
Store/Brand – Overstock | Sealy Posturepedic 300 Thread Count Regulating Hypoallergic Down Alternative Pillow
Price – $19.99 - $22.99. Originally $50.00.
What It’s Good for – Dustmites are one of the most common triggers for asthma, eczema, and rhinitis; and they thrive in dark, humid areas where there’s a ready supply of dead skin scales, making pillows their ideal environment. Hypoallergenic bedding has been treated in a way that combats the development of Dustmites, offering protection against the allergen.
5. Activity Tracker
Store/Brand – Macy’s | Fitbit Alta, Special Edition Black & Gold
Price – $99.99 until 1 p.m., $119.99 after 1 p.m. Originally $149.99
What It’s Good for – Achieving a healthy home isn’t necessarily restricted to the home itself. To make sure you and your loved ones live a long, healthy life, exercise plays an important role – and walking is the easiest place to start. Walking not only leads to weight loss, but it also improves circulation, strengthens muscles, improves sleep, supports joints, and leads to an overall longer life.
PS - Another great way to improve your home’s air quality is to consider having your air ducts cleaned – to help remove and prevent current and future allergens and mold spores from becoming trapped in your air circulation system.
