HEPA Vacuum Cleaners For Allergy Relief
Indoor Allergies: Many people suffer from some sort of indoor allergy. The sneezing, watery eyes and scratchy throat could be the fault of common allergens in the home. Whether it be dust mites, pet dander or mold spores, all of these can be severe irritants to the sensitive person. An even worse condition is allergy induced asthma. These conditions can be controlled if you can eliminate as many of the allergens in the home as possible.
Instead of relying just on anti-histamines for allergy relief, there are other ways to make a home more comfortable and free of allergens. One great tool in achieving a cleaner, dust free home is a HEPA filter vacuum.
HEPA vacuum cleaners: You may wonder what is special about a HEPA filter vacuum. First of all, HEPA stands for "high efficiency particulate air." So what does that mean? A HEPA filter simply has the ability to trap 99.7% of particles .3 microns in size and larger. Some can even trap particles as small as .1 micron.
So, a HEPA filter vacuum can trap tiny dust particles that other vacuums would miss and blow back into the air. It makes sense that these vacuums are great for allergy sufferers. When using a HEPA vacuum cleaner, not only will your house be cleaner but it will be a healthier environment as well. Instead of the dust mites, pet dander and mold spores being redistributed throughout your house, they are sucked in and trapped so they can no longer be an irritant.
There are some vacuums with HEPA type filters that trap a smaller percentage of particles. I will be reviewing only those vacuums that are true HEPA filter vacuums. When shopping for a vacuum, one with a true HEPA filter will label the fact that it traps at least 99.7% of particles .3 microns in size. They also will typically be more expensive than a HEPA type filter.
Below is a review of some of the leading HEPA vacuum cleaners.
