If you’re in the market for a new vacuum cleaner, you might be confused about all the different types of vacuums on the market. While there are a lot of different features to consider before making your purchase, one of the biggest choices you’ll have to make is between a bagged vacuum and a bagless vacuum.
What is better - bagged or bagless vacuums?
A bagged vacuum cleaner is perfect for people who suffer from asthma or allergies, because all the allergens it removes from your carpets, upholstery and hard floors are sealed tightly inside the bag. This means that when you empty the vacuum, all these allergens can’t escape into the air and settle on your floors and furnishings, undoing all your hard work. With bagless vacuums, however, it’s very easy for all these allergens to escape and become airborne as you empty the container into the bin.
Bagged cleaners are also more hygienic and less messy because everything is contained within the bag. They also require less maintenance in general as the filters are often built into the bags, eliminating the need to clean them. Finally, a bagged vacuum tends to have a larger capacity than most bagless models, because the size of bagless canisters is limited. So, to answer the question, “What is better – bagged or bagless vacuums?” the answer is that bagged cleaners are better for asthmatics and allergy sufferers as well as anyone who doesn’t want to mess around emptying an overfull canister.
