All those truly interested in buying a top-of-the-line vacuum cleaner know that nothing compares to the HEPA system in terms of filtration. The name of HEPA comes from high efficiency particulate air. This filtration system manages to do something most of the other filtration systems do not and that is to keep the air pollutants trapped for good and not allow them to go back into the air. All filters able to retain particles larger than 0.3 microns in a ratio of 99.97% bear the HEPA seal of approval. The prices of HEPA filters may vary, but the verification standards are always the same. This high retention rate allows even those suffering from various respiratory problems to vacuum and breathe without concerning themselves about their health.
HEPA filters are commonly encountered with the appliances released on the market these days, but that does not necessarily mean that their filtration performance is topnotch. Miele vacuum cleaners meet the highest quality standards when it comes to their filtration properties. The Miele filter is always made of a very durable material and it is always designed to exceed the standards set by HEPA. Miele introduced an innovative filtration system, their HEPA filters being accompanied by a sealed system, a 9-ply dust bag, a post filter and a pre-motor one. All these accessories form the unique Air Clean sealed system. As for the life expectancy, Miele filters usually last for about one year.
As mentioned before, the Miele filter is designed to exceed all expectations in terms of filtration and therefore has a retention rate of 99.97% that applies to all particles whose diameter exceeds 0.3 microns. The air is trapped inside by a special seal made of rubber, which increases the retention rate even further. Such a filter retains not only the various toxic particles in the air, but also absorbs different odors by means of its generally activated charcoal layer. Therefore, it changes the air in a home completely, leaving behind nothing but freshness.
There is more to Miele filters than HEPA filters for the German manufacturer has a solution to any problem that might have something to do with filtration and purifying the indoor air. However, the most important thing is that the Miele filter is always prepared to stand up to the biggest air cleaning challenges and clear the air to make it breathable by anyone at any time. The air is full of all kinds of unwanted and harmful particles, but these German filters are specially designed to remove as many of them as possible and to make the indoor air fresher and healthier.
