Filtro de aire HEPA

El filtro de aire HEPA (del inglés "High Efficiency Particle Arresting", o "recogedor de partículas de alta eficiencia") puede retirar la mayoría de partículas perjudiciales, incluyendo las esporas de moho, el polvo, los ácaros del polvo, la caspa de mascotas y otros alergenos irritantes del aire. Junto con otros métodos para reducir los alergenos, como sacudir el polvo con frecuencia, el uso del sistema de filtro HEPA puede ser una ayuda útil para el control de la cantidad de alergenos circulantes en el aire. Los filtros HEPA pueden hallarse en la mayoría de los purificadores de aire, que por lo general son pequeños y portátiles.
