What is HEPA?

House cleaning and office cleaning with vacuums is a common practice, and you might believe that all vacuums are equal. Some might have a little extra suction, some might have wider nozzles, but in the end, a vacuum is a vacuum, right?


Cleaning Services in Miami with HEPA Filtration

HEPA filters are air filters that are used within the airflow of the vacuum system. Without them, particles can recirculate in the air, therefore rendering the cleaning ineffective.

HEPA is an abbreviation of High Efficiency Particulate Air and indicates that the filter is effective in filtering particles in the air. The filters we use at Happy Clean trap particles as small as 0.3 microns wide at up to 99.97% efficiency.

In real terms, this means that just slightly less than 100% of pet dander, tobacco smoke residue, pollen, and other irritants are trapped and removed with our cleaning services that use a HEPA filter.

HEPA and Coronavirus

Steam cleaning is 99.999% effective in removing bacteria and viruses of all kinds, including COVID-19. When used in conjunction with HEPA vacuum cleaning, the effect is amplified. Used with a vacuum system alone, HEPA filters can trap nearly 98% of virus particles. (1)

Are the Different Types of HEPA Filter?

Yes, there are many types of HEPA filters made by different manufacturers. Just like vacuums, not all HEPA filters are the same – some only trap larger particles, some last longer than others, etc.

Our cleaning services in Miami use high-quality HEPA filters from ProTeam. (2) ProTeam HEPA filters are made from fiberglass fibers that trap particles through several filtering mechanisms with a target performance level of 99.97% at 0.3 – 0.5 microns.

These filters will help to improve the cleanliness of your room and improve the overall air quality greatly.

What can HEPA Filters be Used On?

Anything that you can use a vacuum on, including during carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, and other soft furnishings. Small particles are especially prone to clinging to such items, and the use of suction from a vacuum will cause them to come loose. The HEPA filter will trap them giving you a clean home or office, fresh feeling furniture, and a great decrease in the number of contaminants in the area.
