There’s no doubt that having a clean home is important to our health. If you experienced a flooded or leaking home due to recent weather events, it’s even more imperative to stay on top of it. Damp and dusty homes can not only lead to respiratory problems, respiratory infections, allergies and asthma, but it can also impact your immune system. Thanks to innovative modern technology, it’s a lot easier to maintain a clean home and better yet, it takes much less effort than it used to. If you're looking for the best home appliances to keep your home clean and healthy, these are our top picks!
Air Purifier - Samsung AX60T
We’re constantly exposed to dust, bacteria, gasses, chemicals and various allergens. While it’s impossible to completely avoid these air contaminants, you can ensure there’s significantly less of them in your home with an air purifier. Samsung’s AX60T Air Purifier provides cutting-edge purification capabilities including filtration systems that guarantee 99.97% of particles in the air are captured - this is backed by independent testing. With one of these running in your home, you can rest assured that you’re breathing in clean, pure air.
With 3-Way Airflow, this unit is powerful enough to purify medium-large living spaces, yet flexible and compact enough to move from room to room with ease thanks to the concealed wheels. The purifier works quickly and effectively, leveraging a comprehensive detection system with advanced sensors and a display that provides precise information about current indoor air quality conditions. It’s also Wi-Fi-enabled, allowing you to monitor indoor air pollution levels from anywhere, and conveniently control it remotely using the SmartThings app.
Stick Vacuum - Samsung Jet 90
Bacteria, dust, and allergens can also get trapped in carpets, floorboards, and other cracks and crevices around the home, so a good vacuum cleaner is a must-have. If you’re after a stick vacuum that’s super powerful and effective, take a look at Samsung's Jet 90 Cordless Stick Vaccum. This vacuum offers advanced and powerful cleaning performance, featuring a digital inverter motor that generates suction power of up to 200W. An aerodynamic air system also optimises the airflow, while multi-cyclonic air filtration traps fine dust particles.
Thanks to a Turbo Action Brush, the Jet 90 is super effective at picking up fine dust particles in the carpet as well as on hardwood floors (and right in those cracks and crevices). The bursh rotates around 3,750 times a minute and can clean various types of flooring. It also has a 180 degree swivel head so you can easily change direction and clean every corner. All of this dust and fine particles get filtered through a 5 Layered Filtration System, which helps to keep the air clean by trapping 99.99% of dust and reducing allergens. Additionally, the Jet 90 provides a convenient way to empty your dustbin. Simply detach and place the vacuum bin on top of the Cleaning Station, which will automatically empty out the dust, without you having to separate the pipe or the cyclone or let any dust escape into the air.
The Jet 90 features a powerful 21.9V lithium-ion battery that delivers up to 1 hour of continuous suction which is the perfect amount of time for most households. You can double your cleaning time without recharging simply by using a spare battery (which can be charged at the same time as your vacuum thanks to the dual charging adapters). You can check the vacuums power level, machine status, and brush type on the integrated digital display.
Stick Vacuum (Value Pick) - Xiaomi Mi G10 Plus
Not everyone has over $1000 to splash out on a stick vacuum. That's why we wanted to include a great value pick as well. Introducing the Xiaomi Mi G10 Plus Handheld Vacuum & Mop. Yup, you heard that right, this one even has a mopping function! This stick vacuum features a high-speed digital motor which delivers up to 150AW of powerful suction to remove fine dust, hair, and dust mites, providing a flagship cleaning experience. Additionally, its distinctive wheel design aids in effortlessly gliding over carpets, further improving its functionality and effectiveness.
The thing with cheap vacuum cleaners is their lack of filtration can cause secondary pollution, releasing dust back into the environment. Not with the Mi G10 Plus! This machine uses a five-stage refined filter system, which can effectively lock particulate matter as small as 0.3µm, with an overall filtering efficiency as high as 99.9%. In addition to the large high torque ground brush, it also comes with a mini electric brush. This specialised mite removal brush can effectively remove dust mites and dandruff from deep within bedding and sofas, keeping your home's microenvironment clean. There's also the Crevice nozzle and the 2-in-1 Brush nozzle to help you effectively clean furniture, crevices, and surfaces too.
The Mi G10 Plus has a long battery life so you won't have to worry about it dying mid-clean. A 3000mAh extended battery will last you up to 65 minutes on a single charge (the nozzle you use and suction power will have an impact on this). You can also purchase additional batteries that you can swap out with a single touch, allowing you to clean for double the time without the need for a re-charge. Emptying the dustbin is super convenient and requires a single press of a button - no need to get your hands too involved, keeping them clean and hygienic.

Dehumidifier - Olimpia Aquaria 24L S1 24 P
As we head into colder months, a dehumidifier is a must-have, especially if your home is prone to getting damp and muggy.
