HEPA Vacuum Cleaners for Allergy Relief

HEPA vacuum cleaners a must for allergy and asthma patients

A HEPA filtered vacuum cleaner is recommended for the home of all allergy and asthma patients. HEPA filters (High Efficiency Particulate Air) are so efficient that they remove 99.97% of all particulate matter measuring 0.3 microns or larger. That means that HEPA filters will remove dust, dust mite particles, pollen, mold spores, animal dander, as well as all types of household dirt. HEPA vacuum cleaners help to improve air quality as it traps allergens in the filter. This may seem obvious, but many standard vacuum cleaners spew out allergens and other airborne particulates while vacuuming.


HEPA vacuum cleaners are not just for carpets and floors. One should use them to remove allergens from matresses, upholstered furniture, book cases, and virtually all surfaces.

HEPA vacuums come in all shapes and sizes, and typically they are available an upright vacuum, canister vacuum or a handheld vacuum. To help treat allergy symptoms from airborne allergens, we strongly recommend the purchase of a HEPA vacuum cleaner.
