Effectiveness of HEPA Vacuuming on Mold in Houses
This document details the outcome of CMHC studies investigating the effectiveness of vacuum cleaners equipped with HEPA filters in reducing levels of fine dust in residential settings. The vacuuming protocol developed for these studies demonstrated that a vacuuming program using a HEPA filter-equipped vacuum cleaner could lower dust loading in the study homes. It was also found that, in houses with mold problems, vacuuming with a HEPA filter equipped vacuum cleaner prior to remediation can help reduce the risks associated with mold exposure.
