Vacuum Cleaner with HEPA Filter

If you have been shopping around for vacuums lately you have probably noticed a trend: all of the vacuums have filters in them. Many of them have a special type of filter in them called a HEPA filter, and generally you will notice that the units that have these specific filters are a bit more costly than the others. There is a reason for this: they are better! You cannot find a better vacuum cleaner than one that uses a HEPA filter because vacuums are all about removing particles from the floors of your home, so you want the best filter you can get, right?

Vacuum’s today are much more sophisticated than ever. They are more light weight, they are much more compact, and they also are able to clean a lot better than vacuums in the past. The vacuum cleaner with HEPA filter is the most advanced cleaning technology yet. HEPA is an acronym for high efficiency particulate air. The vacuum cleaner with HEPA filter in it is able to trap the small particles that other vacuum cleaners would not be able to catch, thus leaving the air and carpet in your home a lot more clean and healthy.

You want a vacuum cleaner with HEPA filter because it will reduce your health problems. Many people don’t know it, but their allergies are often caused by the particles that their vacuum cannot pick up. When you use a vacuum with one of these filters in tit the air in your home will be healthier too, so it really is a good idea all around. It is especially a good idea to use a vacuum cleaner with HEPA filter if anyone in your home suffers from allergies or breathing problems.

One thing to keep in mind about the HEPA filters is that they need to be replaced from time to time to ensure that they are able to filter all of the particles that you need removed from the air and carpet. If you don’t replace it, it will not filter and you should have bought a vacuum with a different filter system. The filters are quite costly in comparison to others, so you need to decide if the better health and cleaner air and carpet are worth the extra cost for your family.

There are a couple different vacuum cleaner with HEPA filter options out there for your to choose between. First you will find that there are true HEPA filters and then there are HEPA like filters. If you are paying the money for a HEPA filter you should be sure that you are getting the real thing! The true HEPA filter is able to trap at least 99.97% of the particles of .3 microns. The test results for this specific HEPA filter should be printed right on the filter itself. These will be the most expensive filters in the store but that is because they have a superior trapping power.

HEPA like filters may look a lot of like but they do not meet the HEPA standards. These filters are going to be a lot more affordable but they will only pick up 85 to 90% of the .3 microns. What you have to ask yourself is, are you comfortable only cleaning your home 90% of the way? Probably not and what if you knew that 10 to 15% was going to make you or your family members sick? This is when it becomes obvious that the vacuum cleaner with HEPA filter really is a great idea.
