What is a HEPA filter, and do I really need to have one?

There are so many different vacuums on the market these days. Some have bags, others do not. Some have filters, others have HEPA filters. What does all this mean?

HEPA filters are a type of filter that can trap large amounts of very small particles that normal vacuum cleaners would normally put back into the air aroundyour home.

“True HEPA filters should be able to trap at least 99.7% of airborne particulates of 0.3 microns or larger.”

HEPA filters help trap all those small particles that can cause problems with allergy sufferers. Dust flying through the air can trigger asthma attacks, sneezing and coughing. By reducing the amount of airborne particle this will help maintain cleaner air for you and your family.

By using a good vacuum with a HEPA filter, it will not only avoid nasty airborne allergens, but it will help with removing up to 70% of dry soiling out of the carpet fibres. By giving your carpet a good vacuum every week, this will help reduce abrasion to carpet fibres, helping prolong the life of your carpet. Vacuums with HEPA filters are also very beneficial for removing pet hair from the carpet. Look into getting a HEPA filter on your vacuum, it will be a positive start to removing almost all the negative elements from your carpet.
