Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses and organizations have become more mindful of how to maintain sanitary environments. To clean large spaces effectively, cleaning crews need to upgrade their tools.
Before COVID, many building service contractors (BSCs) and cleaning crews already used powerful floor cleaners to help remove dirt and debris from hard surfaces. Carpet cleaning tools, however, fell behind.
To help foster better cleanliness in retail spaces, Intelligent Design Manufacturing (IDM) created the best commercial HEPA vacuum on the market. Known as the HEPA Upright Vacuum, it can deep-clean carpets and capture airborne germs that are hidden from the naked eye.
Here is everything you need to know about our commercial grade upright vacuum.
What Is a HEPA Vacuum?
A HEPA vacuum is a special device that uses a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. These HEPA media filters remove 99.7% of particles in the air that are at least 0.3 microns in diameter.
Standard vacuums use a standard filter, and they are not sealed. When they suck in dirt from the carpet, some materials are disbursed throughout the room. Unfortunately, this can contribute to the spread of allergens and bacteria.
On the other hand, HEPA vacuums are sealed, meaning air can only pass through the filter and nowhere else. As it does, the HEPA filter grabs any potentially harmful pollutants and sends them to a vacuum bag. The bag and collection area are sealed, too, so particles are blocked from escaping once filtered out of the air.
Why Commercial Cleaning Crews Need a HEPA Vacuum
If you have been using a standard handheld vacuum for years, you may wonder if you need to upgrade to a HEPA vacuum system. The answer is a resounding yes. Every cleaning crew and BSC should use a HEPA vacuum because of these reasons.
Clients Expect It
Today, clients want to know that you are doing everything you can to keep them safe. Using a HEPA vacuum will help you come through for them. You can give carpeted areas a better clean and provide your customers with peace of mind.
Upgrading to a HEPA system is also a great way to discern yourself from competitors. You can use your new vacuum to win over more accounts and build your business.
HEPA Vacuums May Reduce the Spread of Disease
HEPA vacuums allow for a cleaner environment in buildings. When paired with other cleaning practices, a HEPA vacuum may be able to help reduce the spread of illnesses. As such, they are great for K-12 schools, colleges, and office spaces.
To get the most benefits from these filters, make sure to invest in a genuine HEPA vacuum. There are many so-called HEPA filters out there that can be used with standard vacuums. Even though these filters can trap more debris than standard filters, the entire system is not sealed. That means it cannot capture as many contaminants as the IDM HEPA Upright Vacuum.
Upgrading Your Equipment Can Save You Time
With a powerful HEPA vacuum, you can save your cleaning crew a great amount of time. The IDM HEPA Upright Vacuum has two powerful motors that can pick up dirt and debris in fewer passes.
Thanks to its lightweight design, cleaning crew members will be able to easily handle each area in just one pass and move on to the next. They will no longer have to backtrack or go over an area multiple times, cutting down on cleaning time and effort.
What Makes Our HEPA Upright Vacuum the Best Option?
From its handle to its powerful brushes, the HEPA Upright Vacuum is designed with the end user in mind. It is user-friendly, well-built, and able to take on tough messes.
Some of the key features of our commercial upright vacuum cleaner include the following.
An Intuitive Design
The HEPA Upright Vacuum was purpose-built to meet the needs of BSCs. With it, contractors and cleaning crews can achieve a HEPA standard of cleanliness. The vacuum is also powerful and easily movable. You’ll save time and effort thanks to its wide cleaning path.
Furthermore, the HEPA Upright Vacuum is also designed with storage in mind. When locked in the upright position, our vacuum has a minimal footprint. As such, it can easily be stored in a cleaning closet or parked in the corner of a room. It can also be stowed and hauled on a cleaning van with ease.
The IDM HEPA Upright Vacuum is built to last. It features strong housing that can stand up against daily use. Even its internal parts are just as robust and designed to provide hours of reliable service for large capacity cleaning jobs.
We also designed the HEPA Upright Vacuum to be easy to clean. Within minutes, a team member can swap out the filter, empty the bag, and get the vacuum ready to go again. By making upkeep easier and overbuilding our vacuum, we can ensure that you will enjoy a low cost of ownership.
Industrial Cleaning Capabilities
