There is ordinary vacuuming and then there is HEPA vacuuming. Ordinary vacuuming may be sufficient when you want to perform a routine, low-tech quick debris or dust cleanup. HEPA vacuuming is needed when you need to remove very fine particles, as small as three-tenths of a micron, such as mold spores or other allergens, or when you must be certain to remove dangerous materials such as lead dust generated during renovation or sanding of lead-painted surfaces.
HEPA, which stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air, is a filtration efficiency rating which signifies that the filter medium not only blocks everyday dirt and dust but also tiny dirt and dust particles that you may not see. HEPA vacuuming is preferable for asthma and allergy sufferers because the HEPA filter medium traps fine particles, such as pollen and dust mite feces, which can trigger allergy and asthma symptoms.
HEPA vacuuming is an important cleaning tool for industrial and commercial buildings as well as residences. Many industrial plants or warehouses need to avoid having their inventory covered with hazardous or otherwise objectionable dust or debris particles. These contaminants may also foul their manufacturing or conveying equipment and cause health problems for their employees. That is where HEPA vacuuming comes in. Use of a HEPA vacuum ensures more efficient particulate decontamination of hazardous or other unwanted materials. The employment of HEPA vacuuming on all recently completed construction projects, be they residential, commercial, industrial, office, medical, pharmaceutical or other new or retrofitted buildings, is certainly desirable.
