Ideal Home Garden Explains

A HEPA is a filter made of small fiberglass fibre. This filter protects against small pollutants that may get pass ordinary filters. The filtration system goes through a three step process that includes interception, impaction, and diffusion. HEPA's are so effective that they have been known to catch particles that are invisible to the naked eye.
