Dibea UV-10 Bed Vacuum Cleaner Features and Specifications
Dibea UV-10 has rather awkward shape, typical for mattress vacuums - it is highly specialized vacuum cleaner, intended for vacuuming and sanitizing beds, pillows, sofas and other surfaces that may be cleaned with such units.
It is rather compact unit, with physical dimensions of 12.2 x 10.2 x 8.7 inches (31 x 26 x 22 cm) and it weighs only 4.1 pounds (1.86 kg) and is intended to be used with just one hand.
Note: Mattress vacuums are rather specific units and although Dibea UV-10 is simple to use and maintain mattress vacuum, when it arrives, be sure to read the manual thoroughly (and yes, the manual may be written better).
In order to deeply clean and sanitize mattresses and other similar surfaces, Dibea UV-10 uses soft brushroll, UV lamp, strong suction and high-frequency vibrations.
Although it doesn't uses hot air fan, it deeply cleans by killing and/or removing bacteria, viruses, bed bugs, dander, dust, and other types of dirt and potential allergens.
Dibea UV-10 is rated at 300 watts and its motor is able to create rather strong suction of 10 kPa across its cleaning path of ~6 inches (15 cm).
Note: UV-10 comes with 8 inches (20 cm) UV lamp, but suction inlet is somewhat narrower, hence the cleaning path is not 8" but ~6".
Dibea UV-10 is corded unit, featuring 14.7 feet (~4.5 m) long power cord. Such power cord is long enough for most cleaning tasks at home and is manually wrapped when the unit is stored away.
Fast spinning three-row brushroll loosens the dirt by sending high frequency (33k) vibrations that beat out deeply embedded dirt, which is then removed by strong suction and collected into the 400 ml transparent dirt cup.
Dirt cup is easily detached from the unit and may be emptied directly into the trashcan. To help with the maintenance, dirt cup is washable.
Dibea UV-10 comes with 8 inches (~20 cm) long UV lamp, rated at 9 watts. UV light is emited mostly at rather harmful 253.7 nm, efficiently sterilizing cleaned surface.
Since such UV light is harmful to humans too, Dibea UV-10 also comes with safety features in order to prevent injuries and skin burns. For example, for the UV light to be turned on, unit must be at least 2 inches (~5 cm) above the cleaned surfaces - anything more, and the UV light is turned off automatically.
Air filtration system of the Dibea UV-10 removes 99.9% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger in size - it is not 'true HEPA' air filtration (99.97% of 0.3 microns or larger particles), but it does its job well.
Air filtration is based on the cyclonic action, pleated air filter (labeled as 'HEPA air filter'), internal motor filter and several foam air filters (primary foam filter, inlet foam filter, outlet/exhaust foam filter).
According to the manufacturer, it is recommended to replace HEPA air filter every 2-3 months in order to keep the suction at required level - actual time depends on the vacuum's use and type and amount of vacuumed dirt.
Long Story Short: Dibea UV-10 is affordable, compact and lightweight mattress vacuum cleaner that cleans thoroughly. It is easy to use and maintain, although its manual could be better.
Note that this unit doesn't feature hot air fan/blower and it doesn't dry cleaned surface - removing the moisture is also important part of killing bed bugs, so keep your sheets as dry as possible.
Dibea UV-10 kills bed bugs efficiently, just don't let them come back again!
