Every self-respecting housewife strives to keep her home clean — regularly wipe the dust, wash the floors, and so on. The best way to clean the room is with a vacuum cleaner. Home appliance stores offer a wide selection of these products, and designs can vary greatly from each other in a number of ways.
Today we want to tell you about vacuum cleaners that do not have a dust bag. They clean the surface much more effectively due to some functional features, which we will talk about a little later. The parameters will also be given here, on their basis it will be much easier to choose the most suitable product. Let’s start from now on with our roundup of the best bagless vacuum cleaners of the year.
How to choose the right vacuum cleaner without a dust bag?
As in the case of other suction products, one of the key roles is the maximum power consumption, which indicates the maximum consumption of electricity in the event of a complete blockage of the motor. In wired devices, it ranges from 600 to 2400 watts. The higher this parameter is, the stronger the vacuum cleaner will absorb dust and other contaminants — this indicator, as a rule, is not lower than 300 watts. As the container fills up, the suction power decreases. Many experienced housewives recommend not to bring the device to the full filling of the tank, but to empty it when it is filled to a maximum of half. This will help you achieve optimal suction power.
Before buying, you need to check how convenient it is to use a vacuum cleaner. It is best if the power control is electronic, and its control is placed on the hose handle — you don’t have to bend over again to change this indicator. On sale you can find devices that have an electronic menu and touch controls, thanks to which the type of coating is selected, and the device will choose the required power on its own.
There must be an indication of the degree of filling of the container, and it can be both electronic and mechanical. The first is much more convenient, and also much safer for the device itself. Initially, the vacuum cleaner informs the user about the fullness of the container, and then turns off the motor, preventing it from overheating. It should be checked how easily the container can be removed from the housing so that contact with dust is minimal. On the body should be special rubberized bumpers. They will protect both the vacuum cleaner itself and pieces of furniture from various damage in the event of a collision with them.
The filtration system in most cases includes several stages that allow you to completely rid the air coming out of the vacuum cleaner from dust. The most modern filter is considered to be HEPA, which can trap even the smallest particles, which is very important for people with allergies. The principle of operation of a vacuum cleaner with a dust container is the presence of several cyclones in it. The air is swirled like a whirlwind, due to which, under the action of centrifugal force, the garbage is separated from the air and remains directly in the container itself. Such devices are quite noisy, but they clean the room much more efficiently.
When working with such devices, you do not have to additionally purchase dust bags, suction power remains approximately the same level regardless of the degree of filling of the container, after cleaning there is no foreign smell in the air. The trash bin is easy to clean. The volume of this element is different — it should be selected depending on the area that is planned to be cleaned.
When we selected models to include in our ranking of the best bagless vacuum cleaners, all of the above points were taken into account. In addition, user reviews and value for money were taken into account. We have tried not to include the most expensive models here, so that each of our readers can choose the best products for themselves.
