4 Ways Warehouses Can Use HEPA Filters

Warehouses can store a variety of goods and items for a short or long period of time. Huge spaces with many employees and unmoved products can lead to extremely poor indoor air quality, harmful airborne particles, and dusty or unclean surfaces.

It’s important for warehouses to put measures in place to keep their air and surfaces clean for the health and safety of employees. Not to mention keeping the products stored accessible and in safe conditions!

There are a variety of ways that warehouses can use proper filtration methods to stay clean, keep product safe, and keep employees healthy. Using efficient and powerful filtration methods in cleaning equipment and ventilation systems is key for ensuring a warehouse functions as well as possible.

HEPA filters offer 99.97% micro-filtration down to 0.3 microns. They are ideal for applications where harmful airborne particles, allergens, dust, and bacteria are a risk. Warehouses can use HEPA filters in different applications to ensure they’re getting the most effective clean.

Janitized is proud to provide aftermarket vacuum bags and filters suited for use in warehouses across the globe to help contribute to their positive environment.

Using Replacement HEPA Filters in Warehouses

Air Filtration

Air filtration is the first step in keeping a warehouse clean. Ensuring that indoor air quality is high will help keep employees safe and healthy and improve productivity.

Ensuring that the HVAC system in the warehouse is well maintained and replaced regularly will greatly contribute to the indoor air quality throughout the warehouse. The ventilation must follow the proper industry standards to ensure there is enough airflow in a large warehouse.

HEPA filters can be used within HVAC and ventilation systems to remove smaller particles from the air than regular air filters. Replacing them regularly, as per the manufacturer’s recommendations, will ensure that they work efficiently to provide optimum air flow and don’t put too much strain on the HVAC system.

HEPA filters for ventilation can be coated with an antimicrobial treatment to kill bacteria and viruses on contact if this is something of a concern in your warehouse.

Vacuums

Cleaning surfaces is an important opportunity for using HEPA filters as well. Using HEPA vacuum filters in a warehouse helps ensure surfaces are as clean as possible and that dust, dirt, bacteria, allergens, and other irritating or harmful particles are removed from floors and carpets. We also offer High Efficiency replacement vacuum bags for even better indoor air quality.

HEPA filters can be fitted for backpack and handheld models of industrial vacuums to give you the best clean. Many brands of commercial vacuum cleaner can be fitted with replacement HEPA filters and high efficiency vacuum bags.

Using HEPA vacuum filter replacements in warehouse vacuums supports air filtration by picking up the particles that have settled onto surfaces before they are kicked up by employees or other movement. They also reduce damage done to unmoved product by removing dust and dirt from their surfaces.

Air Purifiers

Having air purifiers set up as a support to your HVAC system is a good idea in a warehouse. They can be used on the warehouse floor, in adjoining offices, or as large mounted units. These are often used to remove dust, pollutants, and other harmful chemicals from the air.

They are particularly important in areas where allergens are a problem as they can help employees suffering from allergies or working in a high-allergen environment to stay healthy.

Fitting an air purifier with a HEPA filter ensures that they are removing the smallest particles from the air. They can also be treated with granular activated carbon to absorb volatile chemicals on contact.

Air purifiers with HEPA filters customized to your warehouse’s specific needs can be a great addition to improving the air quality.

Sweeper/Scrubbers

Industrial panel filters are used in sweeper scrubber machines to catch even the smallest particles during cleaning. Sweeper scrubbers are an integral part of warehouse cleaning equipment, so it naturally follows that this equipment be fitted with the most efficient filtration system.

These filters are unique in that they must be able to operate when wet. Many industrial panel filters are washable, meaning you save money and time on replacing them. There are a variety of industrial panel filters suitable for brands of commercial cleaning equipment like sweeper scrubbers.
