Buy an Allergy Hepa Vacuum for Allergy Sufferer


Allergy Hepa Vacuum Cleaner          Allergy sufferers are plagued with stuffy, runny noses, watery eyes, itchy throats and lung irritation. Sometimes their allergies are so bad that they cannot function on a daily basis because of irritation. Fortunately there are ways to reduce allergens in your home and try to lead a more normal, healthy life. Follow these steps to vacuum in a way that reduces allergens in your home so that your quality of life improves with each breath.

Step 1

Hepa Vacuum FilterPurchase a vacuum that contains a HEPA filter if you do not already have one. A HEPA or High Efficiency Particulate Absorbing filter is a filter that is specially designed to trap extremely small particles. In fact many HEPA vacuum filters can absorb particles as small as 0.3 micrometers in diameter. Many particles that cause allergies such as mold spores, dust mites, and pollen are larger than this size which means that these HEPA vacuums will successfully trap these particulates.

Step 2

Hepa Allergy Vacuum LinoleumHepa vacuum all linoleum and hardwood based surfaces in your house once per week. Hard floor surfaces such as linoleum and hardwood do not trap allergens anywhere close to the amount that carpets do. As a result you do not need to hepa vacuum these surfaces as much as you do carpet.

Step 3

Hepa vacuum all carpeted floors in your house twice per week. Carpet has fibers in it which trap dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and mold spores. Many carpets actually harbor mold colony growth without the homeowners ever knowing. As you walk and track on the carpet the movement brings up all the allergens and forces some of them into the air where they are continually breathed in by allergy sufferers. Vacuuming these with a HEPA filter is the only way to ensure that they are trapped and disposed of properly.

Step 4

Clean the filters in your HEPA vacuum cleaner once per month or per manual specifications. Some types of HEPA vacuums come with filters that can be hand rinsed or washed to remove embedded particles while others do not. Make sure you follow your allergy vacuum’s cleaning care instructions to determine the best maintenance schedule. Using an allergy vacuum with clogged filters drastically reduces their allergy trapping abilities.

Step 5

Hepa Vacuum under bedOnce every few months, use your HEPA vacuum cleaner underneath your bed and other hard to reach places. You’d be surprised as to how many dust mites and allergens collect underneath people’s beds. You may have to move your bed or mattresses temporarily to vacuum underneath the bed but it will be worth it. This way you can ensure that you have removed all the allergens in the area that you frequent for one third of your day.

Additional Advice

                   Some HEPA vacuum cleaners can be expensive, so you may consider buying one of a smaller size if you are on a tight budget.

                   Check with your HEPA vacuum cleaner’ s manufacturer to see if you need to replace the filters in your vacuum on a maintenance schedule.
