A high efficiency particulate filter or HEPA is a filter that removes 99.97% of the particles by 0.3 microns or more. This high degree of filtration is important because there are many more fragments of mold spores than whole mold spores.
The use of HEPA filtration ensures that these small particles or fragments as well as larger intact spores can be safely removed from the interior environment.
Although many vacuum cleaners can claim HEPA filtration, few vacuum cleaners meet the strict criteria of the HEPA vacuum cleaner.
Genuine HEPA vacuum cleaners not only have a HEPA filter, they are also specially sealed so that the air cannot escape before it passes through the filter.
This means that the particles we breathe stay in vacuum rather than being dispersed in the air we breathe.
HEPA filtration is also important for people who suffer from dust mites, pets, pollen or other allergens.
The vacuum cleaners Miele and Sebo are manufactured and manufactured in Germany.
It is important to note that not all business models are optimal when choosing the best HEPA vacuum cleaner.
Many Sebo models place the filter in front of the engine instead of the engine, meaning that the air leaving the engine is not effectively filtered before it is released into the room.
Some models of Miele vacuum cleaners do not have a tight system that allows air to escape before passing through the HEPA filter.
However, the Miele models with a closed system and a HEPA filter are 99.99% effective to remove all particles of 0.3 microns and more, as independent lab tests show.
It is also important to note that not all models are equipped with a HEPA filter.
As mentioned above, this is an option for some models and must be purchased separately.
So, if you choose a model that appears as an optional HEPA filter, you should buy a vacuum with your new model.
The filter supplied with a HEPA filter can be easily replaced. This must be done when mounting the vacuum to get true HEPA filtering.
Do not forget to collect additional vacuum cleaner bags for your new vacuum cleaner.
