Q: What is HEPA?

A: HEPA, or high-efficiency particulate air, is a type of air filtration. It is designed to help contain fine particulate matter and dust, contributing towards improved indoor air quality.

Q: Where do you find HEPA filtration?

A: You can find HEPA filtration in many places, including aircraft, hospitals and vacuums.

Q: Who benefits from HEPA?

A: Everyone benefits from improved indoor air quality. However, hospitals and healthcare facilities especially do so, as many patients and residents are battling illnesses and health issues that make indoor air quality an important factor in their overall health and well-being.

Q: When do I change the filter?

A: There are a number of factors that can contribute to how long HEPA filters last. Items affecting the filter include frequency of use (daily, weekly, monthly) and what is being vacuumed up (hair, large items, etc.). As a general rule of thumb, you should change the HEPA filter on your vacuum every six months. You can use daylight saving time as a reminder. However, if it seems like you might need to change it sooner than six months, do so. A clogged HEPA filter cartridge can negatively impact vacuum performance and indoor air quality.
