Can this filter be used for cleaning up attic insulation that's contaminated with animal feces (r...

Asked by Chris May 16, 2018

I used this filter in my 16 gal 6.5 hp rigid vac to clean mouse nest and droppings out of the heater system and filter of my pickup truck. It clogged up pretty much and that was not a lot of debris. But worse, the whole inside of the vac drum and any exposed parts were then coated with disgusting mouse dirt. Even the vacuum hose and attachments. Had to wash everything with water and chlorine to get rid of the smell. After that experience I bought some vacuum bags and use these in the vacuum for everything and that keeps most of the larger dust from ever getting to the filter. One other trick is to get a long 2.5" hose and attach it to the exhaust side of the vac and run that out a window. That will keep from blowing around whatever dust you might stir up where you are cleaning. That's what the guy that cleans my fireplace/chimney does.

Is this filter washable?

Answers

I would say they are just being truthful. Just because it's made of HEPA-rated materials, doesn't mean it will meet HEPA standards. I know I stating the obvious but without contacting the filter manufacturer, that's the best information I can give. On a side note, I use this filter on a Vac that I clean my 3 pellet stoves, it stops the very fine ash from getting out of the Vac.

How small must an item be in order to be filtered by your HEPA filter. For example will bacteria or virus be caught in this filter thank you

HEPA filters are designed to reduce the amount of small particles released into the air.

Yes, this filter worked perfectly. No fine debris exiting the vacuum. By fire debris, I'm talking thin set that we busted up and sheet rock dust from our remodel. The first filter worked poorly, where this captured everything that was missed making for a nice clean work space to complete painting and putting down new wood plank ceramic tile.

I bought a new RIDGID wet/dry vac in 2011 and just recently changed the filter and bag. I decided on buying the more expensive Allegen pleasted paper filter because I am going to sand drywall and I needed the extra filtration. This filter does a fantastic job. With the basic paper filter like the one that came with the vacuum, dust would come out of the exhaust port. But now, no dust at all. And the new paper bag filter works great also. It is definitely work the money. Recently I bought a new WEN 6301 Electric Detailing Palm Sander. This replaced my old Black & Decker Mouse sander. The WEN has a vacuum port and I didn't particularly care for this when I bought it, but it ended up being a great addition because I am able to attach the RIDGID flex hose onto the WEN sander port. It's not a perfect fit, but that doesn't matter. Yesterday, I sanded for two hours and easily 99% of the dust from sanding the drywall was picked up by the vacuum hose. I attached a picture. If you look at the floor, there is hardly any drywall dust. Normally, I would have to vacuum the edges, but in this case, there wasn't any to vacuum.
