Flame retardants are a group of chemicals that are added to a variety of different products to help them meet flammability standards.

If your old vacuum is on the frizt or you're looking to make a new investment, we rounded up 6 HEPA filter vacuums in a variety of categories that are highly reviewed.

It's much better for children and people living with allergies or asthma. Whether you are looking for a cordless, or an upright vacuum, no matter your budget, find the option that's right for you.
