Whether you’re shopping for a bagless or bagged vacuum cleaner, upright vacuum cleaners are an essential cleaning tool for any household. Vacuum cleaners have evolved considerably in the past ten years. Once used only for carpet, with the popularity of hardwood floors and tile, upright vacuums are now designed to pick up dirt from multiple surfaces.
When making a decision to buy bagless or bagged vacuum, there are a few things you may want to consider. With their suction technology and transparent debris containers, allowing consumers to see all the dirt they’ve picked up, bagless upright vacuum cleaners have gained popularity over the last few years. Since the removable canister collects the dirt, bagless cleaners do not require the additional purchase of bags. However, depending on how frequently the bagless vacuum is used its vacuum filter needs to be replaced two-to-three times per year.
Bagged upright vacuum cleaners do require the use of traditional disposable bags. Many people with breathing sensitivities prefer these models since manufacturers are now making these bags with a higher standard of filtering to keep microscopic dust particles from escaping the vacuum and circulating through the air. Most modern vacuum bags also have a closure that allows you to cover the hole in the bag before disposing of it. This helps prevent dust from leaking through the bag’s opening back into the air after you have thrown it away.
