What are vacuum cleaner HEPA filters?

It may be difficult to control the quality of the air we breathe outside our home, but inside it is in our hands. And you can't imagine how important the vacuum cleaner is!

If you are thinking of buying a vacuum cleaner, our advice for you is to choose a model that has effective filtration. Do you know why HEPA filters are and why are they so recommended?

HEPA Filters: High-Efficiency Particulate Air

This technology allows the use of vacuum cleaners to be healthier since they have a great capacity to retain the smallest dust particles. By trapping them inside, they prevent them from returning to the environment.


HEPA filters can capture up to 99.95% of the particles that pass through them, provided they are larger than 0.3 microns. HEPA filters can remove many of the harmful particles in the air, such as pollen, spores, animal dander, dust mites, tobacco smoke, even bacteria, and viruses.

How do HEPA Filters Work?

HEPA filters are made of a fiber mesh, either glass or carbon, and usually have different diameters. They are located between the motor and the vacuum cleaner bag or container, and at the air vents. When vacuuming, the particles are trapped in the filters and cannot be returned to the outside. In this way, not only is the air cleaned but it is also purified.
