3 Things to Look for in your Vacuum Cleaner for Allergen Removal

3 Things to Look for in your Vacuum Cleaner for Allergen Removal

Carpets can be a nice touch to any living space and help keep your feet warm in the winter months, but are they helping your allergies? If you are sensitive to pollen or dust, it is very important to vacuum on a regular basis to help keep your allergies at bay. However, not all vacuum cleaners are created equal. What vacuum are you using in your house? Perhaps it’s time for an upgrade. Let’s have a look at 3 main things your vacuum cleaner should include in order to offer the best deep clean of your carpets. 1- Strong Suction First things first, using a vacuum cleaner with low suction is almost a waste of time. Even if you get rid of the dirt that you can see with the naked eye there are still many fine particles that are hidden in your carpet fibers. Dust mites and pollen will stay in your carpet and cause your allergies to flare up. Even if you vacuum you will still suffer if your vacuum doesn’t have strong enough suction. What’s the point in using a vacuum if it only cleans half of what you want cleaned? So remember, suction is very important.

2- HEPA Filter

If you are looking for a new vacuum make sure it includes a HEPA filter. HEPA filter stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air, and here is why this is so important to help leave your air clean and healthy. Most vacuums that are not equipped with HEPA filters will simply circulate particles and blow the fine allergens back out into the air since these particles are so small you can’t even see them with your eyes. Although your space might look clean without a HEPA filter you will never truly leave your space as free of allergens as you desire.

3- Anti-Allergen Seal

Now that you have a vacuum with amazing suction that picks up all the fine allergens thanks to a HEPA filter, you will want it to also have an Anti-Allergen Seal. The Anti-Allergen Seal is the final step to a solid preforming vacuum. Say goodbye to buying and changing vacuum bags as with the Anti-Allergen Seal your vacuum canister will be on lock down. It will tightly seal your canister so that all the dirt and allergens won’t have a way to escape back into your home.

Now that we have given you some tips on what to look for in your next vacuum, enjoy the shopping. Three brands that we highly recommend are Shark, Dyson or Miele.
