HEPA Vacuum rentals are available to help families clean up after rehab projects. HEPA Vacs are needed to capture tiny particles of lead dust that would pass right through a regular vacuum. The rental fee is $25 per day or $50 for three days. If you are interested in renting a HEPA Vacuum contact Brandy at 973-3612 or 1-800-215-4942 or by email Brandy Robinson at brobinson@penquis.org
