In general, we recommend frequent cleaning of high-traffic areas with a vacuum equipped with a HEPA filter. HEPA filters capture 99.97% of particles at 0.3 microns in size. On a sealed HEPA system, any exhausted air is filtered to HEPA efficiency, not just the filter. If the vacuum air path is not completely sealed, it can leak out prior to getting captured in the bag or the final filter.
Sanitaire vacuums with a sealed HEPA system:
- EON QuietClean SC5500A
- EON ALLERGEN SC5505A
