Is a HEPA Filter Vacuum Good for Allergies?

Jul 12, 2008
Imagine this; you are gazing over your home proud that you have just vacuumed. You feel safe, secure, and protected from allergens, dirt and particles. You think your asthmatic child is sitting in a clean room with both the flooring and the atmosphere purified because you just vacuumed with a vacuum containing a HEPA filter.

You just bought a brand new HEPA vacuum and of course a vacuum with a HEPA filter is the best right? Unfortunately in many cases this is not the truth in its entirety.

Even though an abundant amount of people are led to believe that all HEPA filter vacuum cleaners are alike, this belief is far from correct. Because HEPA is highly regarded by many consumers, vacuum manufacturers make sure to include the term HEPA on many of their vacuum cleaner, yet do not inform of the unreliable and fickle way their vacuum cleaners are implementing the HEPA filter in their filtration process.

A HEPA filter is devised of a casing and filter medium, which blocks tiny particles from being exhausted from the machine, however all HEPA vacuum cleaners are not constructed in an identical fashion. Where many vacuum cleaner companies are eager to boast the HEPA filter contained within, they are unwilling to state the second-rate engineering in their vacuum cleaner.

A vacuum containing a HEPA filter is not guaranteed to be excellent for asthma and other health problems. An incredible amount of vacuum cleaners lack sufficient engineering to promise air is exclusively forced through the HEPA filter.

If a vacuum is not engineered to be completely sealed, polluted air will escape through the vacuum cleaner and you will end up with air that is more contaminated then when you started despite having a HEPA filter. For allergy and asthma sufferers this means the 'HEPA' vacuum which is thought to be superior because it contains a HEPA filter within, may not be the best because the engineering is inferior.

The vacuum cleaner turns out to be not as efficient, capable, or functional as one would wish it to be. Countless vacuum cleaners which have a HEPA filter, are not built in a manner which ensures it is mandatory for contaminated air from the vacuum to be forced through the HEPA filter, causing the vacuum to unsuccessfully sanitize the air in your house.

An exceptionally well-engineered machine is the Miele Vacuum Cleaner. A Miele Vacuum Cleaner is completely sealed making it impossible for allergen and other contaminates to escape. Miele Vacuum Cleaners have a completely sealed filtration system making Miele one of the only brands in the world capable of being truly HEPA certified. Miele vacuums use rubber sealing around the inside of the vacuum cleaner as well as on the HEPA filter to ensure that the air expelled from a Miele vacuum cleaner is truly HEPA certified. Consumers with asthma or allergies often overlook the construction of a vacuum leaving them vulnerable to polluted air expulsion from their so-called "HEPA vacuum cleaner". Prior to purchasing your next HEPA vacuum cleaner ensure that the vacuum is entirely sealed, so you are buying a vacuum that truly accommodates your requirements.
