High Efficiency Particulate Air… sounds important, right? Well it is. Commonly known as HEPA, this type of filtration captures 99.97% of the particles 0.3 microns or larger in the air so you don’t have to breathe them.
What particles are 0.3 microns or larger? Those particles include pollen, bacteria, dander, household dust, mold, plant spores, coal dust and even some viruses and some tobacco smoke.
If anyone in your home suffers from allergies or if you surround yourself with cute, furry friends, then make sure your vacuum cleaner has a HEPA media filter and is a sealed system. Other filtration materials do an OK job of capturing the big stuff, but HEPA media filters trap the microscopic particles, too.
Your air will be cleaned as you vacuum so your home will be fresh from the floor to the ceiling.
