The Best HEPA Vacuum Cleaners


Mold spores are microscopic in size and if you have had a mold problem there is guaranteed to be much higher than normal mold spore levels in your home. This is a problem for two reasons. The first reason is that these spores continue to be breathed in which can keep making you sick. Secondly, your mold problem could return if conditions such as high humidity levels prevail, as these spores are actually mold seeds. Airborne mold spores can easily be taken care of with a good air purifier. However, mold spores land and settle all over floors and carpets where they will remain. A normal vacuum cleaner won’t be able to suck up many of them whereas a HEPA certified vacuum cleaner will.

What Is a HEPA Vacuum Cleaner?

What sets a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuum cleaner apart from the more conventional types of vacuum cleaners are its use of HEPA filters. These specialized filters are able to trap 99.97% of all particles – including mold spores. HEPA vacuums cost a bit more than the conventional ones but are well worth it if you have a mold spore or allergy problem.
