The more time we spend indoors, the more susceptible we are to airborne household allergens such as dust and dust mite residue, human and pet dander (i.e. dead skin), mould spores, and chemical off-gases from cooking, candles, smoking, and synthetic materials that were recently introduced into the home.
To reduce the risk of respiratory discomforts triggered by these irritants, it’s important to control indoor air quality (IAQ) by utilizing HEPAgrade filters in whole-home air circulation systems, as well as in portable air purifiers and vacuum cleaners. In addition, frequently wiping fixtures and furniture, plus cleaning carpets, throw rugs, mats, drapery, upholstery, cushions and dust covers will make a great contribution to improved IAQ.
Unfortuntely, there are a lot of HEPA air purifiers outhere that ranges from $50 to $5000 but they all have the same in common that is using BAGS or dry FILTERS but regardless of how many layers of filters they use there are still a chance of airborne dust escaping when filter is dry. The only way to completely prevent dust from flying is to neutralize it with water.
Also, just cleaning the air in the indoor environment are not all there is to it because the only way you can 100% purify your air is to 100% clean the dust on your bed, floor, walls, duct and air vent.
There are also a misconception of “suction” vs “airflow” in determining the quality of vacuum cleaner and air purification system. Most believe that suction supersedes the airflow in sucking the dust from the floor or air but in reality it is the airflow that is responsible of picking up dust and dirt from the air and floor.
