Certain vacuums are better for allergy sufferers
A vacuum cleaner can greatly improve your indoor air quality or make it worse. The act of removing dust and debris from your home can send dust and allergens flying into the air. This not only can cause you extreme discomfort but can present health concerns. Certain types and brands of vacuums are designed to limit the pollutants released in your homes air. When buying a vacuum for allergies ALWAYS buy a vacuum with a bag. Bagged vacuums contain allergens better than bagless and reduces or in some cases eliminates direct contact with the dirt.
What’s the main factor allergy suffers should look for in a vacuum?
HEPA level filtration is important when talking allergy vacuums. This means that 99.97% of microns 0.3 in size and larger are filtered out of the air before it is released back into your home. But just because a vacuum cleaner has a HEPA filter does not mean it is a HEPA vacuum. A true HEPA vacuum will have quality seals throughout the vacuum to ensure 100% of the air passes through the filter and does not leak out prior to reaching it. For healthier living conditions everybody, not just people with allergies, should own a vacuum with true sealed HEPA filtration.
