Use a Quality HEPA Vacuum to Kill Mold On Surfaces

There are many vacuums out there some able to pick up bowling balls and others just claim to be the best.  Prices can go for as little as $50.00 to well over $1,000.00 What should a HEPA vacuum do to be beneficial?

1.   Vacuums should pick up dirt.  They should not leave any dirt behind.  Remember not long ago you could see a cloud of dirt at times when vacuuming.  HEPA vacuums use a HEPA filter which catches 99.97% of all contaminants in the air. No dirt clouds.
If you HEPA vacuum all surfaces, there are no biological contaminants:  bacteria, viruses, germs, fungi (mold) left on the surface if the surface was properly cleaned before vacuuming. They are part of what you need to kill mold.  After cleaning the surface with a mold removal product, dead mold spores must be cleaned because even dead mold spores create a mold response.

2. The difference between HEPA vacuums in cost can reflect the vacuums ability to pick up dirt.  Some vacuums are better than others at getting the most dirt when sweeping.  Others leave some dirt behind.  Generally, the more expensive vacuums do a better job.  If you are vacuuming a rug or upholstered furniture, it should be a deep cleaning as dirt can be trapped deep into the rug.  Other factors to consider are how far can the vacuum reach with attachments?  Is the vacuum too heavy?  Some vacuums have heavy suction and are heavy themselves that they pull on your back. You should not need a chiropractic adjustment after sweeping. Can I take this on a ladder and sweep high or are there attachments to do the job.

3. Will vacuuming frequently be a problem?   If someone has allergies or a problem with mold, it is important to be able to vacuum frequently and reach the walls and ceiling to get a thorough cleaning.

Problems with Many Vacuums:
  1.   Too heavy
  2.  Cannot get around corners
  3.   Leaves dirt behind
  4.  Too expensive
  5.   Hose is not long enough to reach high.
  6.  Suction is so heavy I can’t move the vacuum.
  7.  Does not come with all the attachments needed or have to pay more to get them.
  8.   Has HEPA filtration but it really is not clean.

It is beneficial to everyone to live in a clean house.  Mold can grow in dirt if it is damp enough.  Carpeting degrades over time looking like a pile of dirt.. This is not necessarily picked up as there is no vacuum that can suck up degraded underlayment through the carpeting. Mold just loves to hide in this dirt pile. Note that using any HEPA vacuum on carpeting that is deep and dense will not be effective as the HEPA vacuum can not reach deep down into the carpet.  Something to consider when purchasing carpeting.
