At the time you are thinking about purchasing a brand new lightweight upright or canister vacuum cleaner, the issue will pop up; Must you buy a lightweight upright or canister vacuum sweeper that has a paper filter bag, or pick out a vacuum that is without a bag? This will help you choose.
Initially practically all vacuums were bagless. all vacuum cleaners simply used a cloth bag to contain the particles and filth. The vacuums leaked dust and odors, but they were to a great extent better than possessing nothing at all. Next bags and filters were released to very dramatically cut down on the dust. The paper bags were a huge enhancement because they cut down on the odors stored in the cloth outer bag, and the debris and dirt could be thrown away without a dirt cloud forming over the lightweight vacuum sweeper.
Around 1985 the bagless lightweight vacuum cleaner became accepted. Initially, without a bag vacuum cleaners had a distinct advantage over bagged vacuums. The HEPA filter that just about all without a bag vacuums have stops nearly all the dirt and odors from leaking out the lightweight upright vacuum cleaner exhaust. The good news was that the HEPA filters stopped dust from spewing out. The bad news is that the clogged up promptly. They clogged earlier if the air contained high humidity or if you were sweeping pet dander and hair. The dog and cat dander sticks to the filtration system and retards air flow. The slowing air flow is also what cooled the motor. The motors in bagless vacuum sweepers tend not to last as long as with a bag vacuums due to this constrained airflow to the motor in without a bag vacuum cleaners.
The two key factors buyers 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. Bagless vacuum sweepers need a HEPA filtration system to stop the filth. These filters are pretty successful. They also need to be changed a minimum of once a year (more often if you have small children or dogs or cats) and, they are not economical, $29 – $59 each. It is impossible to spend as much for paper bags. High filtration paper liners will cost you a dollar or two apiece. You will spend a lesser amount of money on the paper bags than for the without a bag filters, even if you change the paper bags habitually.
A lesser amount of dirt? Do you own trash cans at home? Do you use garbage can liners? Why? Because it’s way more clean when you throw out the liner instead of dumping the can with all the dust being thrown into the air. Most high end vacuums now utilize micron filtration liners along with a HEPA filter at the exhaust of the vacuum sweeper. The micron filtration liners offer exceptional 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 soiled because the dust is trapped in the high filtration paper liner.
Less expensive vacuum cleaners are nearly all without a bag. The profit is in the filters, not the disposable vacuum sweepers. The higher end vacuum cleaners almost nearly all use high quality inner liners.
If you have animals, the family pet dander is what sticks to the without a bag HEPA filters. We moreover recommend to dog and cat owners that they use a lightweight upright or canister vacuum sweeper with a charcoal filter to trap and neutralize the dog and cat odors. Also, natural fiber brushes on your lightweight vacuum sweeper’s roller brush will not trap the pet hair in the brush roll.
