At the time you are deciding about acquiring a brand new lightweight upright or canister vacuum sweeper, the question can pop up; Should you buy a lightweight vacuum sweeper that uses a paper filter bag, or select a vacuum that is without a bag? This may help you come to a decision.
Initially all vacuums were without a bag. all vacuum sweepers merely used a cloth bag to enclose the dust and filth. The vacuums leaked particles and odors, but they were to a great extent better than having nothing at practically all. After that bags and filters were introduced to very dramatically cut down on the dirt. The paper bags were a great development because they cut down on the odors kept in the cloth outer bag, and the filth and dust could be thrown away without a dirt cloud forming over the vacuum sweeper.
About 1985 the bagless vacuum sweeper became prevalent. At first, bagless vacuums had a definite real advantage over with a bag vacuum cleaners. The HEPA filter that all without a bag vacuum cleaners use stops nearly nearly all the dust and odors from leaking out the vacuum sweeper exhaust. The good news was that the HEPA filters stopped dirt from spewing out. The bad news is that the clogged up swiftly. They clogged faster if the air had increased humidity or if you were sweeping pet dander and hair. The dog and cat dander sticks to the filtration system and slows air flow. The slowing air flow is also the stuff that cooled the motor. The motors in without a bag vacuum cleaners tend not to last as long as bagged vacuums as a consequence of this limited airflow to the motor in bagless vacuum cleaners.
The two primary factors people ask us about without a bag vacuum cleaners is: 1) They want to save money on bags and filters, or 2) They want less dust. Without a bag vacuums need a HEPA filtration system to impede the dirt. These filters are pretty effectual. They also really need to be changed not less than once a year (more often if you have small children or animals) and, they aren’t low-priced, $29 – $59 each. It is impossible to spend as much for paper bags. High filtration paper bags may well cost you a dollar or two each. You will spend a lesser amount of money on the bags than for the without a bag filters, even if you replace the paper bags regularly.
A reduced amount of dirt? Do you have garbage cans at home? Do you use garbage can bags? Why? Because it’s way more clean when you throw out the bag instead of dumping the can with all of the dirt being thrown into the air. Most high end vacuums now employ micron filtration bags along with a HEPA filter at the exhaust of the vacuum cleaner. The micron filtration liners offer excellent filtration, and they don’t clog up and restrict airflow like the HEPA filters in bagless vacuums. The HEPA filtration system at the exhaust takes much longer to get filthy because the dirt is trapped in the high filtration paper bag.
Less expensive vacuum cleaners are all without a bag. The profit is in the filters, not the disposable vacuums. The higher end vacuum cleaners almost nearly all use high filtration inner bags.
If you have animals, the family pet dander is what sticks to the without a bag HEPA filters. We additionally recommend to dog and cat owners that they use a lightweight vacuum cleaner with a charcoal filtration system to trap and neutralize the pet odors. Also, natural fiber brushes on your lightweight upright vacuum sweeper’s roller brush will not trap the dog and cat hair in the brush roll.
