Everyone wants to be satisfied that they have created a clean, healthy environment when they clean their rooms.We want to know if we have succeeded in removing dust, pollen, bacteria and other particles that plague most homes from the air and carpets.So let's look at HEPA filters, or HEPA filters.
A HEPA filter connected to a vacuum cleaner can catch smaller particles that may not be caught by your vacuum cleaner, providing additional relief for allergy sufferers and purifying the air for all.
But at several times the cost of a traditional filter, is the HEPA filter worth the added cost?
Originally designed in the 1940s to prevent the spread of radioactive pollutants in the air, HEPA filters soon found their way into the commercial and eventually civilian sectors.A true HEPA filter can remove 99.97 percent of particles in the air with a diameter of 0.3 micrometers.
HEPA filters help create a healthy home environment, even for those without allergies or asthma.HEPA filters trap most bacteria, pathogens, microbial spores, soil particles, soot particles, some construction dust, and some virus particles (attached to larger particles).
If you want a HEPA filter, the most important feature of a vacuum cleaner is the HEPA filter itself and how it is fixed.
The filter itself should be made of a folded semi-rigid material and fixed in a frame.The frame must be tightly secured in place with gasket seals.The gasket prevents allergy-laden air from bypassing the filter.Some vacuum cleaners have thin, pleated filters that look like legitimate HEPA filters;Other vacuums have high-efficiency filters in a sturdy frame, but the filter frame is not tightly secured, so allergens bypass the filter instead of passing through it and escape from the vacuum.Foam filters are not HEPA filters.
When you buy a vacuum cleaner, avoid products labeled "heber-style" or "heber-style," as these products may have less stringent filtering standards.The "allergen resistant" label is different from that of HEPA.
So if you keep a tidy house to begin with, installing a HEPA filter on your vacuum cleaner may not make much difference to whether you have a runny nose during pollen season.It doesn't collect pet hair and dander better than a regular vacuum cleaner, nor does it remove odors.
But while HEPA filters are no panacea in themselves, carefully vacuum-cleaning with HEPA filters will help capture some of the smaller environmental pollutants we come into contact with in our lives.The extra cost is worth it for a cleaner home.If you have acute allergies, asthma, copd, or other respiratory conditions, the HEPA filter is an important part of a healthier family.
