Dust and allergens are bound to accumulate on the surfaces of your business. To help keep your employees and potential customers safe and free of runny noses, continuous sneezing, and watery eyes, your vacuuming and cleaning strategy will greatly benefit from a vacuum with a HEPA filter. And while a HEPA filtered vacuum will not atomically solve all of your indoor air quality issues, it will properly seal these particles in while you’re vacuuming to prevent them from escaping back into the space as you go through your cleaning process.
What is HEPA?
Designed to remove 99% of all particles that pass through your vacuum, HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are high efficiency air filters with standards set through the United States Department of Energy. While there are some particles that can escape through a HEPA filter, they do help block most common air particles from escaping back into your facility.
Benefits of HEPA Filters
- HEPA filters help improve indoor air quality – By preventing allergens from escaping the filter and putting impurities back in the air, vacuuming with a HEPA filter vacuum cleans your facility from top to bottom and guarantees cleaner, safer air.
- HEPA filters eliminate allergens – Vacuums that have HEPA filters do a much better job at ensuring your facility is clean and free of allergens than your standard vacuum. This means that any allergens that are located on a surface are removed and help keep your team and customers safe and healthy.
How to Choose a HEPA Filter
Selecting a vacuum with a HEPA filter can seem overwhelming but with the right amount of research and knowing what to look for, the process is much easier. When deciding between filters, always consider:
- It’s rating
- Manufacturer’s recommendations
- Overall effectiveness
