There are dozens and dozens of HEPA vacuum cleaners on the market and most of them are found and purchased in big box stores that include Walmart, Home Depot, Sears, and KMart. Pretty much all of these HEPA vacuum cleaners are Chinese-made low-quality junk. This is because they are not sealed at the HEPA filter and vacuum cleaner case allowing a HUGE amount of dust, allergens, and bacteria to spew back into the air of your indoor air environment to breathe and react to while vacuuming. It’s also the reason why you most likely have to dust your home after vacuuming! YUK! Don’t be fooled by brand names like Hoover, Eureka, TriStar, and ORECK that used to be manufactured in the United States before the GREED motivated company owners lowered their values and standards only to fire their American employees only to lower the quality of their vacuum cleaners and have them built in China using low-quality parts and designs in their quest to make more money! HOW UNAMERICAN! Remember how long your old American Made Vacuum Cleaner Lasted? How about 15-25 years on average! Or More! Did you know that the actual average lifespan of these Chinese-made vacuum cleaners is only between 2 and 2 ½ years? This fact is disgusting but true and millions of broken Chinese-made vacuum cleaners both HEPA and non HEPA are filling our countries landfills every year because they quickly break down! Due to a lack of spare parts from China, it’s often impossible to repair them or it just takes too long to wait for many of the needed parts to come into stock or even to be found! Think about this fact and look at these numbers! If the average Chinese-made vacuum cleaner only lasts approx 2 years and the average price for a medium-level Chinese-made vacuum cleaner is approx $300.00 in ten years you will have spent in the neighborhood of $1,500.00on five LOW-QUALITY replacement vacuum cleaners! There is still a small handful of American-made vacuum cleaners on the market and because they cost more money than the much lower quality Chinese-made vacuum cleaners you will not find them in your local big box stores! Most American-made vacuum cleaners are only found in vacuum cleaner specialty shops, websites, or through clever top-quality manufacturers that still do home demonstrations! My name is Barry Cohen and I am the owner of Absolute Air Cleaners And Allergy Products. I have been in business since 1989 and I have tested many different brands of HEPA vacuum cleaners. I have sold higher quality brands of HEPA vacuum cleaners that included two European brands made by Miele and Nilfisk. These two brands were without question better than what you could purchase in a department store. However only after testing and then selling the USA made Air Storm HEPA vacuum cleaner manufactured in California did I learn and know for sure without question that I had found the absolute highest quality HEPA vacuum cleaner on the market for my many customers most of which suffer from dusty homes, allergies, asthma, COPD and immune dysfunctions. The three most important features of a quality HEPA vacuum cleaner are function, quality, and factory customer service! The Air Storm canister HEPA vacuum cleaner has all three of these features hands down! The sturdy Air Storm canister HEPA Vacuum cleaner (MADE IN THE USA) is made of a super-strong Kevlar-like composite that is lightweight weighing in at only 13 pounds! But don’t let that fool you! The Air Storm is powered by an Ametek Lamb Motor that is extremely powerful and combined with its quality Wessel-Werk powerhead for cleaning even the highest pile carpeting the Air Storm will outperform and out clean all other vacuum cleaners on the market while leaving your carpet looking like new and freshly groomed after vacuuming! The Air Storm with its powerful yet gentle powerhead for cleaning carpeting also comes with a complete tool kit, which includes a floor nozzle specifically for cleaning hardwood and tile floors along with a full array of upholstery and crevice tools, which will allow you to clean any surface, and in the tightest places. All of these Air Storm features are nothing less than fantastic, but another important feature of this HEPA vacuum cleaner is that: #1 it is 100 percent sealed so absolutely ZERO dust, bacteria, or allergens can escape back into the indoor air environment while vacuuming! Other HEPA vacuum cleaners spew tens of thousands of dust particles that are loaded with allergens and bacteria! The Air Storm is sealed so well you can actually do asbestos or lead abatement with it and it will pass a zero laser particle test at 99.99 percent down to .03 microns of particle size.
