Holmes Domestic cleans your home 100 times better than 98% of cleaning companies that use the standard Hoover bags.


A traditional vacuum cleaner fitted with a standard textile dust bag can filter down to about a 30-micron particle size. A normal two-ply paper dust bag will usually filter down to a particle size of 15 microns (twice as small). To eliminate biological contamination the level of filtration must be many times better than this since bacteria are between 1 and 10 Microns in size.

HEPA rated vacuum cleaners will ensure that the exhaust air is biologically clean and filtered down to 0.3 Microns (100 times as small).


HEPA, an acronym for High Efficiency Particulate Air filter, is a filtration standard created by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. HEPA filter media is proven to be 99.97% efficient @ 0.3 microns (a micron is 1/1,000,000 a meter or 1/25,000th of an inch). Due to their extremely high efficiency, HEPA filters have become widely used in medical, electronic and industrial applications.

HEPA filters are composed of a various sized borosilicate fibres, which are pressed together to form a net-like structure with opening large enough for air to pass through but too small for most particulates.

Holmes Domestic uses the HepA-Flo high Efficiency Filter Bags in there vacuums. In tests, this vacuum achieves an efficiency of 99.97% - passing only 35 particles per million, which is 8 times better than standard allows.
