Even in the nicest homes, we often see how appliances are becoming smarter. But really, are they forgetting things? These days, with the pandemic affecting the greater population of the country, things take quite a good turn in making sure those microbes don't get to our food, our clothes and just about every single item in our house to keep us safe always. This is where Beko comes in. As Europe’s leading home appliance brand, they have developed Hygiene Shield technology on a thong of household products made in response to emerging consumer needs, especially at times where unnatural virus spreads around and cleanliness is a priority.  

Currently, their portfolio has seven pieces that have built in disinfection functions to make sure you're safe.  Hygiene Shield capable appliances has the power to kill more than 99% of bacteria and viruses (including coronavirus) which you don't see much in other appliance makers. Mind you, Beko has done research across 31 countries all revealing primary concerns of consumers is hygiene. 

The special line takes inspiration from nature and uses steam and heat to enable consumers to achieve above standard hygiene results at home. Their technologies are being independently tested by Airmid Health Group, a well respected biomedical research organization. The HygieneShield washing machines and refrigerators has shown 99% bacteria and virus reduction on these appliances and expect other tests for the other appliances to be finalized by November, more so expecting the same results.
