Bagged or Bagless Vacuums
Bagged or Bagless - Which Do I Choose?
Bagged vs Bagless...Bags are Better!
The days when a vacuum bag would quickly loose suction as the bag fills are long gone...Today there are top fill bags with HEPA filtration that captures virtually all the dirt which improves the effectiveness and life of the microfilters in the vacuum.
Bagless vacuums have only microfilters that can quickly clog from excessive dirt build-up and must be cleaned or replaced often, or a loss of suction will occur vs. today's disposable vacuum bags that are Top-Fill and either micro lined, HEPA, or 3 -4 ultra Layered. They hold virtually all the dirt captured by the vacuum which improves the useful life of the micro filter (which are there to keep pollens and allergens from being discharged back into the room) because dirt enters from the top, deposits at the bottom, accumulates upward, and air exits through the side which allows unimpeded air flow as they fill to capacity
In contrast,vacuums without bags to hold nearly all the captured dirt, have only microfilters that quickly clog from excessive dirt build-up and must be replaced often or a loss of cleaning effectiveness WILL occur. Cyclonic action whether one or 50 cyclones is great UNLESS you ever plan on turning your vacuum off. The resulting wind down does not have enough velocity to keep the dirt in motion. Micro-filters are expensive,usually costing MORE than a multi-year supply of disposable bags.
Bagged is the clear choice for convenience, economy and effectiveness.
