Vacmaster – The Best Hepa Sucker in the Universe! ~ My Story


Vacmaster!  This awesome hepa vac doesn’t suckcause it really does suck!  😉


Ha Ha.  Okay, I know it’s an ancient joke, but couldn’t help myself cause it’s so true!  This naughty-micron-munching monster sucks and sucks then suuuuuuucks some more.    It seemed never-ending while doing my extensive disgusting, moldy renovation.  It’s such a breeze to use that I actually enjoyed the job!   It easily picked up anything in its path – nails, screws, small chunks of wood, wall board, sawdust & fine drywall mud powder (usually quite toxic) – and never clogged, lost its strong suction or leaked any contents.

The canister moves around very easily.  My old shop vac was big and bulky, whereas this is the perfect manageable size and still does the job.  My son and I especially love the long very flexible hose and the tools are great.



When I began searching for a vacuum for my cleanup (and believe me, I searched plenty) I knew I needed the best hepa available.   I’ve had many regular hepa vacs, but this one is special and so worthwhile.


The hoses on the others would shrink up when in use making for a very short stretch.  and were eventually  compromised as I’d see stuff  floating back out into the room.   Blech!

I truly feel safe and protected from the ‘bad stuff’ with this Vacmaster.   After each use I like to wipe down the tools thoroughly with my fave non-toxic mold cleaner, Concrobium.



When sanding nail holes or wherever I could, I’d hold up my handy-dandy vacuum tool to keep dust at bay and out of my face!  (I do always wear a mask while working, but still.)

I’m excited to continue using my Vacmaster in my garage, yard and wherever I need it.  Vacmaster has supplied me with fresh new hepa supplies, so I’m good to go.  Yay!

Mold remediation is serious business.  It’s good if you can afford going professional (expensive!), but if you are like me and doing it DIY, you may consider checking out the mold remediation EPA guide.
