Vacuum cleaner operations appear to be a significant source of indoor aerosol particles as shown by limited measurements carried out in randomly selected residences. The objective of the study is to measure aerosol particle emission rates under well-defined and controlled conditions that are representative of general vacuum cleaning operations. Residential upright carpet vacuum cleaners were studied. The authors determined from the data obtained by this procedure: (1) the total aerosol particle emission rate for the vacuuming process and (2) the particle size distribution of the reentrained particles.
