HEPA vacuum cleaners are a great resource for any home, and a HEPA filter should always be used with a bagless vacuum cleaner. For homes that have pets, or individuals who suffer from allergies and asthma, a HEPA filter is a necessary addition to your vacuum cleaner.

HEPA vacuums are available in a wide array of styles and sizes, from canister to upright. Some HEPA vacuums also utilize vacuum cleaner bags which offer yet another level of filtration for homes sensitive to indoor air quality levels and pollutants. For individuals seeking the highest level of filtration from their vacuum, we highly recommend a vacuum utilizing a filter bag and a HEPA filter.

There are many vacuum cleaners available that utilize a HEPA filter as part of their filtration. As aforementioned, this is highly beneficial for asthma and allergy sufferers, because the HEPA filter traps the fine particles like pollen and dust mites which trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. For the HEPA filter in any vacuum cleaner to be effective, the vacuum cleaner must be designed so that all the air drawn into the vacuum is expelled through the filter, with none of the air leaking outside of the HEPA filter. This is often referred to as "Sealed HEPA" of “Sealed System” as is found with Miele vacuums and can sometimes be more vague with the statement of "True HEPA." Vacuum cleaners simply labeled HEPA use a HEPA filter, but not all air necessarily passes through the filter and some may escape to other parts of the vacuum. Finally, vacuum cleaner filters marketed as "HEPA-like" will typically use a filter of a similar construction to HEPA, but without the filtering efficiency. Additionally, because of the higher density of the pleats in a HEPA filter, a HEPA vacuum cleaner requires a more powerful motor to provide adequate cleaning power.
