Do You Really Need A HEPA Vacuum Cleaner?
Most people don’t need a HEPA Vacuum Cleaner, but anyone with allergies to dust mites, mold spores, pet dander, pollen, and other tiny airborne allergens can usually benefit greatly by upgrading to a True Sealed HEPA Vacuum Cleaner. For this reason we believe that any homeowner or facilities manager who cares about Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) should seriously consider upgrading to True Sealed HEPA Vacuum Cleaners.
What Is A HEPA Vacuum Cleaner?
A standard Vacuum Cleaner sucks in dirt, dust, dander, and other particles at the front of the machine and passes the incoming dirt-laden air through a filter bag or other dust trap. Typical standard vacuum cleaners can remove dust and particles down to a size of about 10 microns diameter, but all finer particles pass right through the filter bag to be blown out the vacuum cleaner exhaust, back into the air that we breathe! Many of these fine particles are allergens that can trigger allergic reactions in susceptible people.
A HEPA Vacuum Cleaner is a vacuum cleaner that has a normal filter bag or dust trap to act as a pre-filter, and also has a HEPA Filter installed in order to remove very small sub-micron particulates which standard vacuum cleaner bags cannot trap.
However, many ‘HEPA Vacuum Cleaners’ that are equipped with HEPA filters can continue to exhaust allergens into the air. This is normally due to poor design and inadequate sealing around the HEPA Filter unit. If you want to remove the maximum amount of allergens from your air, it is important to buy a True Sealed HEPA Vacuum Cleaner.
HEPA Vacuum Cleaners often become more efficient at removing the finest particles after being used a few times. As their HEPA filters collect fine particulates it becomes easier for them to trap even finer particles, which would otherwise be able to pass through the filter media unhindered.
However, at some stage the HEPA filter in Your HEPA Vacuum Cleaner will become so highly loaded with particles that it will require replacement. In typical residential use (vacuum cleaner manufacturers assume up to 3 hours of vacuum cleaning per week) a HEPA filter may reasonably be expected to last about a year. In professional janitorial cleaning applications (which may run all day for 5 days per week) HEPA filters usually require much more frequent replacement, depending upon the specific cleaning duties.
How Much Do HEPA Vacuum Cleaners Cost?
There are many different types of HEPA Vacuum Cleaners available, including Canister HEPA Vacuum Cleaners, Upright HEPA Vacuum Cleaners, Cordless HEPA Vacuum Cleaners, BackPack HEPA Vacuum Cleaners, Wet/Dry HEPA Vacuum Cleaners, and even Ride-On HEPA Vacuum Cleaners.
You should typically expect to pay anywhere from $200 to $1,200 for a Residential HEPA Vacuum Cleaner, depending upon Your specific requirements. Heavy-Duty Professional HEPA Vacuum Cleaners for commercial, institutional, or industrial cleaning applications may vary in price from $750 to $15,000 depending upon the scale of your cleaning operation and other parameters.

What Is A HEPA Filter?
True High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters must be at least 99.997% efficient at filtering 0.3 micron diameter particles, allowing no more than 3 particles in 10,000 to pass through them.
There are True (Certified) HEPA Filters and other 'High Efficiency Air Filters' available on the market. Only the True HEPA filters are certified to provide HEPA filter performance.
