The Advantages of a HEPA Filter in the Home
Do you suffer from allergies even when you’re inside your own home? There’s nothing worse than not being able to breathe because of a stuffy nose or itchy, watery eyes that drive you crazy. Indoor air quality is extremely important for allergy sufferers and a HEPA filter in your vacuum can really make a difference.
What Is A HEPA Filter?
HEPA is an acronym for “high efficiency particulate air”. So what exactly does that mean? It’s a type of filter that traps a large amount or potentially harmful airborne particles that a normal vacuum cleaner would spit back out into the air. True and absolute HEPA filters can trap at least 99.97% of particles of .3 microns. By using a HEPA filter, you can get rid of other toxins, like brominated fire-retardant chemicals (PBDEs) as well as allergens like pollen, pet dander, and dust mites.
Do I Need a HEPA Filter For My Vacuum?
If you suffer from indoor allergies, using a HEPA filter can really improve your life. Reducing airborne particles and allergens will produce cleaner air for your family to breathe, resulting in fewer allergy symptoms. If you decide to make the switch, keep in mind that there are many filters out there that resemble a HEPA, but do not necessarily meet the strict standards of a true HEPA filter.
