Bagless Vacuum Cleaner

With so many different brands of vacuum cleaners on the market, how should you go about choosing the right vacuum cleaner? First you have to choose what style vacuum cleaner you want, do you want an upright, canister, rechargeable, water filtration vacuum, a robotic vacuum or a bagless vacuum. The bagless vacuum is a great choice.

Have you ever changed out a vacuum cleaner bag? The bags don’t always come right off and they tend to rip causing dirt to fly everywhere. Then you end up vacuuming dirt that you already vacuumed up the first time. The bagless vacuum cleaner eliminates that problem. In place of the bag is a plastic cylinder that works with a reusable filter. The great part about the filter is that you don’t have to change it every few weeks thus saving you money.

Now that you have decided on a bagless vacuum, you have to choose a model and a manufacturer to buy this vacuum from. Some of the best manufacturers of the bagless vacuum are Hoover, Bissell, Dyson and Dirt Devil. All of them are great names in the business. A great way to test out a vacuum is to ask the sales person in the store for a demonstration. Not all stores will do this, but if you are going to spend hundreds of dollars on a vacuum don’t you want to make sure that it works?

Some other things that you should inspect in a bagless vacuum is how easy it is to clean out the filter and the canister that traps the dirt. With some models the canister pops out rather well but it can be harder to pop back in. Also, with a bagless vacuum cleaner, it can get full fast and sometimes right before it gets full, the hose attachments can get clogged.

Make sure that you ask the salesman about these items. You can also do a comparative consumer report shopping online. These reports offer insight into most name brand appliances. Then once you read the reports, there are places like review sites that other consumers have reported their experiences. This way you can see honest answers rather than a manufacturers desire to sell a vacuum cleaner.

Once you decide on a brand, head to your local store and check out the attachments. Make sure that everything works. It may be hard to test the bagless part because no store is going to let you vacuum up a mound of dirt. So you will have to rely on your own eyes and the consumer reviews on the product. Remember you are going to spend a lot of money on a bagless vacuum so you want to make sure that it works.

Always ask about their return policy and see what the warranty is. Bagless vacuums are great to have but they have been reported to have small problems like the hoses clogging. If you have respiratory problems a bagless vacuum may not be the best idea. Sometimes the dirt will back draft when you dump into the garbage and a puff may come up. But when you pull off the vacuum bag on a regular bag, the same thing may happen.

Choosing a vacuum can be tough but the bagless vacuum cleaner has its advantages. But shop around and see which brand fits into your budget and which brands will have the best features. Then you can make an educated decision on what bagless vacuum cleaner you are going to purchase. By shopping online, some websites offer a discount if you buy the same item they have in the store online. Always check for some great deals that you may not be aware of.

    Good article. There really seems to be a difference of opinion with consumers about the benefits of bagged or bagless vacuums. As you point out both have their pros and cons. It is typically easier to dispose of collected dirt and debris with a bagged vacuum cleaner, however these require the purchasing and “throwing away” of bags. With a bagless vacuum cleaner it can be more of a chore to empty the dirt container (while keeping yourself and surroundings clean – many people complain that emptying dirt containers can be a messy business and decide to do this outside of the house). It should also be noted that bagless vacuums typically have filters that need to be maintained or replaced and they rely on seals to prevent the dirt-container from leaking.
