One thing that I've discovered is that putting a layer of cheesecloth over the vents is very, very helpful as well. Now, this is in addition to the HEPA filters and all the other precautions and cures we know about regarding cleaning up the indoor air. The layer of cheesecloth over the vents really does cut down on dust and improves the air quality.
Thanks for the great article. I love these!

If I double up and fold it, it makes a good filter over my vents. Now, there is another cloth called Tack cloth that is like filter media but I do not like that it has a chemical coating on it. Painters use this, I suppose to catch paint drips or such. The tack cloth would not have to be folded and doubled up on to filter. But it would work far better than my little cheese cloths do because the tackiness traps the dust and finer particles.
There is also a media called Rymple Cloth that is very good, also thicker than the cheese cloth.
Hope this helps.

The cheesecloth has to be doubled over and folded and stuff to ensure it catches the dust, etc. So you use more of the cheesecloth than the other media.
