Bagged vacuum cleaners require that the bag be replaced once it is full. Replacing the bag is easy and the bags are cheap.

  • Costly-Vacuum dirtbags may not cost a fortune, but the frequent use will, with time, cost you quite an amount in vacuum bag purchases. 

  • Eco-unfriendly.- Most vacuum bags are made from paper but they also contain toxic materials and may not be recyclable. Throwing away the bag with the trash in it will likely cause piling. 

  • Reduced Performance- As the bag fills up, the general performance of the vacuum cleaner reduces, slowing down the cleaning process.

  • Easy to Know When to Empty: The bag-less vacuums come with a clear chamber from which you can tell exactly when it needs emptying. You can also easily tell how much dirt is in the chamber.

  • Increased Exposure to Allergens: People with allergies or conditions like asthma are at a disadvantage when using the bag-less vacuum cleaner as it exposes them directly to their allergy triggers which are the dust and dirt from the vacuum chamber.
