Washable Filters Vacuum Cleaners

Posted on July 12, 2018 by connectedworker

Have you ever heard of a HEPA filter? I had never heard of it until a few years ago when I was researching new vacuum cleaners with washable filters for my home.

Actually I was looking at the unique Dyson vacuum cleaners that were available in those days. Even back then they all came equipped with a life time washable HEPA filter. HEPA actually stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air.

This innovative filter traps microscopic substances and fine contaminants for example pollen and tiny dust mites which can result in asthma and allergy symptoms. For individuals who are afflicted by allergic reactions, this type of filtration system is pretty much mandatory to prevent symptoms when vacuuming your home.

The best thing about these filters is that they are washable, meaning you can use them again and again. This means you won’t have to replace them for years. These washable filters really benefit pet owners who need to constantly clean up dog or cat hair and pet dander from their carpets, upholstery and floors. They actually eliminates 99.97 percent of airborne contaminants, which is a pretty high percentage.

HEPA is the only type of filter which is used by Dyson. These vacuums do not rely on any other filteration systems or bags to capture dirt and dust. The Dyson range of cleaners are bagless so maintenance costs are kept to a minimum.

The Dyson range also uses centrifugal pressure to separate dust and dirt from the air. Air which comes from a Dyson Ball Vacuum cleaner has as much as one hundred and fifty times less germs and mould than the air that we usually breathe. Vacuum cleaning with a HEPA filtration system vacuum improves quality of air helping remove allergens from your home.

All Dyson Ball Vacuum cleaners are certified allergy and asthma friendly through the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of USA. Not just that, however these vacuum cleaners also have the Seal of Approval with the United Kingdom Allergy Foundation, are authorized by the National Asthma Council Australia, and are certified allergy and asthma friendly by the Asthma Society of Canada.

Many people around the world are using Dyson vacuum cleaners not only to clean their floors and furniture, but to improve the air in their houses as well. What I like most about these vacuum cleaners though, is that the HEPA filtration system is washable. To keep vacuum cleaners running efficiently you would usually have to regularly replace filter systems and the costs can add up fast. Having a lifetime washable filtration system that you don’t have to replace, therefore saves cash and the inconvenience of constantly purchasing replacement filters.

Dyson tends to make few different types of their Upright and Ball vacuum cleaners. You have the DC28 series and the DC24 series that offer an exciting floors model and an animal model. The DC28 upright is a regular size vacuum, and the DC24 series is a little smaller sized and much more compact. The DC 24 animal also has useful features such as the HEPA filter and ball technology for simplicity of use, and continuous suction power.

Dyson vacuums are not the cheapest machines in the world, however due to their efficiency, they will save you quite a lot over time in replacing carpets as well as the cost of filters and bags. The cleaner itself is so well built, that it will last for many years. Having a vacuum with washable filters is a definite advantage and certainly something that’s worth considering when purchasing your next machine.
