Our Pro-Team Backpack vacuums are another example of our commitment to both cleaning and the environment. Vacuum systems extract "dust" from carpets, but few people understand what Michael A. Berry, Ph.D., understands regarding dust. "Dust," he says,
contains dirt, textile fibers, pollen, hair, skin flakes, residue from cleaning chemicals and household products, decaying organic matter, dust mites, bacteria, fungi, viruses, and a variety of other contaminents. Many viruses use dust particulates as rafts to ride the air...Typical vacuuming does not reduce fine particle-levels indoors. Fine particulates of less than 7 microns pass through vacuum cleaner bags.
Our Pro-Team vacuums can reach 96.1% efficiency with its Micro-lined and Micro-Tex Cloth Filter bag (99.97% with HEPA filtration), filtering particulates down to 1 micron is size - What does this mean? It means that our vacuuming systems contains 100% of all dust extracted! That's 10 times what the naked human eye can see!
