Vacuum cleaners are designed to aspirate dust particles, hair, and many other physical particles. The Hepa bagless canister vacuum does much more than that. It has a high efficiency particulate absorbing filter, or Hepa filter, as it is called, and with this technology it can eliminate even viral and bacterial organism, as well as even the tiniest particles in the air, such as dust mite feces and pollen.
When it was designed in the 1940’s, the purpose of the Hepa filter was to prevent the spread of radioactive contaminants which were airborne in certain war time labs and factories. In modern times, these filters provide protection agains airborne disease transmission while they also remove visible particles and dust. The filters are made of fiberglass fibers, and because of their efficiency, they are used in hospitals, labs, and other spaces where a particle-free, contaminant-free environment is required.
Another important use of Hepa filters is in airplanes. The air during a flight is recirculated from the moment the cabin is sealed and pressurized, but by filtering it this way, the risk of spreading airborne pathogens is greatly reduced. Industrial and high-tech “clean rooms” depend on such filters to remove any airborne particles that might affect the processes or components with which they assemble their most sensitive products.
Cleaning your home and filtering the air in it should be your highest priority, since nothing is more important than your family and loved ones, including your pets. A huge majority of contagious diseases are transmitted by airborne or surface microbial contaminants. Additionally, by removing allergens you can significantly reduce the suffering of those who have allergies. If you or your loved ones have this problem, the use of a HEPA filter will make your home environment an allergy-free haven.
Since these are bagless canister vacuums, you can also maintain a high level of cleanliness in the dust containers of these appliances. The container is designed to be completely removed to empty it, and can be washed and disinfected before it is replaced into the vacuum. Many brands of HEPA bagless canister vacuums are available on the market, in many different forms and designs. One will suit your needs best, so go to a store that carries a variety and try some for yourself. What matters is that your health and the health of your loved ones can be protected by using such an appliance. Knowing this, and having the choice to do so, you should give this option the highest priority.
