HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Arresting. A HEPA filter effectively extracts 99.97% of all particles greater than 0.3 micrometers from the air flowing through it.
A HEPA vacuum is specially designed with HEPA filter technology to keep these particles from being scattered around. This is especially useful in the removal of mold and mold spores.
Attempting to remove these particles with a regular vacuum can have disastrous results since the spores would then scatter and later grow in other places outside the originally affected area.
Designed to remove harmful radioactive particles from the air in the 1940’s, HEPA filter technology has advanced considerably and is now used in everything from the pharmaceutical industry to home mold removal.
At Dririte of Tampa, we only use the most efficient, high quality HEPA vacuums and filters. It only takes a single microbial mold spore for mold to grab a foothold again after a home restore. We get it all as well as check places other companies don’t such as behind suspect drywall and baseboards.
