When it comes to allergens, your best offense is a good defense. But instead of simply popping an antihistamine at the first sign of an allergy attack, adopt an even more proactive strategy that prevents allergens from inciting an itchy nose or throat in the first place. This means stationing an air filter in your home's most-frequented areas, and, of course, vacuuming on a regular basis to prevent irritating particles like dander, pollen, dust mites, and mold from accumulating on surfaces.

However, when your goal is to keep allergens at bay, just any vacuum won't do. Opt for a vacuum equipped with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter, as this type of air filter is specially designed to not only remove particles from the air, but to trap them within the filter, preventing allergens from recirculating throughout your home. Read on for the top 10 HEPA vacuums to buy right now.
