How many of you purchase compressed air to clean your computers? How many of you took a look at the ingredients in that can before you purchased that $7 can? As many of you know and have read from previous blog posts, I am really trying to live a more natural, holistic lifestyle. One thing I got rid my home of was compressed air cans due to the fact that they contain chemicals like hydrofluorocarbons, difluoroethane, and other greenhouse gasses. Compressed air cans can explode, cause frostbite, and cause pollution, too.
I was sent the X3 Hurricane Canless Air System to review. The X3 Hurriance is a canless air system that uses the air we breathe to blow air at 260+ MPH to clean a variety of different items in and outside your household. This model is designed for corporate and IT department use; other models have lesser airspeed for a once in awhile computer cleaning.
These include, but are not limited to:
- Computers, Printers, Fax Machines
- Delicate Antiques
- Blinds & Lampshades
- Silk Plants
- Durable Medical Equipment
- Hobbies & Models
The X3 Hurricane model comes with the actual handheld device (about 8 inches, wide for my small hand, perfect for my husbands goliath hands), a charger (charges rather quickly, about 20 minutes), and a 3 piece attachment kit for hard to reach places. The X3 Hurricane is equivalent to 5,000 cans of compressed air, without all the chemicals!
Fully charge the X3 Hurricane before using it; it comes with a half charge, but you don’t really experience the full power unless it is fully charged. When fully charged the X3 Hurricane can run for over 15 minutes straight.
This was awesome cleaning my car. Having two dogs, we get a lot of dust and hair on the dashboard. You hold the X3 Hurricane in your hand (I’d guess it weighs about a pound and a half) and press the button. It is noisy enough to scare my small dog so this wouldn’t be something you would want to do around sleeping children. However, dog hair went flying out the door and this made my life a lot easier cleaning the floor mats and getting all of the junk out of the cup holders on the doors. The X3 Hurricane can be used from any angle, unlike compressed air cans that can only be used upright. (And, if you’re like me, you always lose or break the straw component).
The Hurricane X3 was also used to clean off my laptop and printer. I couldn’t believe the amount of dust that flew out of the keys and in the tiny crevices on the printer. It feels good to clean in a safe way.
Canless Air has other models available for purchase for the household user that aren’t as intense as the X3 Hurricane, which is intended for commercial use. They also have the 3 piece accessory kit, the charger, and a holster as available accessories.
I think corporate environments that spend money on compressed air cans should consider investing in the Canless Air system products. Not only will it be more environmentally friendly, but it would provide greater health benefits to the companies staff. (Never mind the person who decides to use the compressed air can get high on their lunch break…)
I think that this is great for household use, too. You earn your money back relatively quickly with purchasing one of the Canless Air system products. Nothing is worth compromising my health and I am glad to use a product that provides sustainability and safety within my home.
