Hepa Vacuums & Filters

You’ll Love our Riccar Vacuums!

Part of the solution for maintaining healthy air in your home relates to cleaning. Vacuuming can be the number one cause of indoor air pollution. In the past, traditional vacuums used cloth bags to filter the air as it ran through the machine. Obviously, the smaller dust particles were sent flying through the air, since they were smaller than the dirt caught in the bag. And since they were smaller, they were more easily suspended in the air.

Asthma or Allergies

If anyone in your family suffers from asthma or allergies, the pollen and other irritants that can be founding resting under beds, in corners and crevices are sucked up, pass through the vacuum filtration system and recycled back into your home’s atmosphere and higher traffic areas. This can have an immediate impact which can be felt for days.

Hepa Vacuuming Makes All the Difference!

Hepa stands for:  high efficiency particulate air, and most often refers to a type of high-efficiency air filter designed to remove 99.97% of airborne particles measuring 0.3 micrometers or greater in diameter from the air as it passes through.

Hepa filter systems provide a secondary trap for smaller particles, and can leave the air in your home cleaner than it was found. Of course, any vacuum is only as good as its maintenance.

Our vacuums are exceptionally well-designed, exceptionally well-maintained, and do an exceptional job of filtering particles from the air in your home.
