When cleaning in schools, the primary concern is to create a better learning environment for the students and reduce absenteeism. One of the major contributors to absenteeism is asthma. One out of every 13 school-age children has asthma and it accounts for nearly 15 million missed school days per year.

Cleaning with vacuums equipped with HEPA filters can help improve the indoor air quality of schools and keep children in the classroom.

Vacuums with HEPA filters can capture dust and particulates that traditional vacuums can miss. In fact, HEPA filter vacuums can capture 99.9 percent of dust, pollen and other airborne particles. In addition to filters, sealed vacuums will make sure dust is not released back into the air.
