Industrial HEPA vacuums are effective at improving indoor air quality by removing airborne debris and reducing harmful pollutants. HEPA vacuums are most often recommended when maintaining high indoor air quality (IAQ) standards are critical. Indoor air quality is an increasing priority in commercial buildings, as poor air quality can negatively impact allergy sufferers, asthma sufferers, and other respiratory sufferers.
Most of the time, vacuums collect dust, dander and pollen from the surfaces being cleaned, but they also add more small particles to the air people are exposed to. Industrial HEPA vacuums capture these tiny particles, which are kicked back into the air to keep the air clean.
You need to determine when to use an industrial HEPA vacuum:
Lead Paint - To comply with EPA rules when using lead paint, you must use an industrial HEPA vacuum to clean any walls or other dust-covered surfaces.
Asbestos - To prevent fine particles or powders from escaping into the atmosphere and posing a potential health hazard, any material that contains or may contain asbestos must be cleaned with an industrial HEPA vacuum before being refurbished, repaired or replaced.
Clean environment - Requires a perfectly dust-free environment, such as where sophisticated electronics or optical/photographic equipment are present. Another good place for industrial HEPA vacuums is the production floor of a food or pharmaceutical company.
Biofouling - Because industrial HEPA vacuums capture a lot of dust, they may be the best cleaning solution after a pest, bird or biological infestation. Using an industrial HEPA vacuum is also a standard way to remove any mold or mildew.
Nuclear Power - Where radioactive material must be cleaned, such as power plants, laboratories and hospitals, HEPA vacuums are ideal.
