A Vacuum Review: Bagless vs. Bags
All I can say is that our two high cost vacuum cleaners gave us a lot of trouble. Here are just some of the problems, very low suction, the belts didn’t last long and were difficult to replace.
Both of these vacuums were bagless, and one of them had to go to a repair shop just to replace the belt. The other one with low suction needed the filter replaced which was going to cost over $40.00.
The guy at our local vacuum repair shop told me that he wasn’t a fan of the bag less vacuum cleaners. I was surprised because I thought that bag less was the latest and greatest technology in vacuum cleaners.
So I decided to do a little research, and here is what I’ve read. Bagless vacuum cleaners can emit fine particles of dust into the air and the filters can be expensive to replace, as I found out. The bags for vacuum cleaners have come a long way in trapping fine dust.
Now I’m not saying to get rid of your bag less vacuum cleaner, because you probably love it. I’m just saying that based on our research we decided to go out and buy a vacuum with bags.
We are so glad that we did, the cost was under $100.00. This vacuum is lightweight and very easy to handle, and the best thing is that it works great on hard surfaces, so it’s very easy to use in the kitchen and bathrooms. So if you’re in the market for an inexpensive vacuum that works well, I recommend a vacuum with bags.
This is the one we own The Bissell Power Force, we’ve had it for better than two years now and have had no problems.
Here is another choice for under $100.00 The Hoover Tempo.
