What Is the History of Electrolux Vacuums?

Electrolux Upright Vacuum

Gustaf Sahlin, a Swedish businessman, emigrated to the U.S. in 1924 and founded Electrolux Corporation USA. His tank vacuum quickly became a success with homeowners and business users and was popular for many years. In 1968 Consolidated Foods Corporation acquired Electrolux and in 1989 Electrolux Corp. USA created Purelux to manufacture residential under-the-sink water purification systems. In 2000 the North American rights to the Electrolux brand were sold to the Electrolux Group of Sweden. Over the years Electrolux has made central vacuums, uprights, canisters, stick vacuums, and hand-held vacuums.

What Are the Essential Benefits of Electrolux Bagless Vacuums?

The top advantages of using a bagless vacuum cleaner include more consistent suction power, eco-friendly operation, ease of operation and waste disposal with upright and canister models.

  • More Consistent Suction Power - Vacuums that use bags can lose suction as they continue to work. Once the bag begins to fill, the suction power of the unit gets less powerful and it does less cleaning. You may have experienced this with one of these units when cleaning your home. At first, it works perfectly well, but as you continue cleaning it picks up less debris and dust and becomes less effective.
  • Bagless Electrolux vacuums only have a dust collection cup or canister, which is typically made of clear plastic material built into the vacuum. It is easy to see when the cup fills and even as it gets closer to being full, it does not stop the suction power from working.
  • Eco-Friendly Operation - If you are concerned with doing your part to save the environment, buying a bagless is one way you can make a small contribution to Mother Earth. Vacuums that use bags contribute to our waste problem because of the constant need to replace the bag that ends up in a landfill. Not only is this wasteful, but it also creates an extra expense for you because you buy many bags over time.

It can be very annoying to realize your vacuum needs a new bag and you are out of them. Now you must wait until you make it to the store or have one delivered. With a bagless model, the cup that collects dust, dirt, and debris is reusable so you simply empty it and keep on working.

  • Ease of Operation And Waste Disposal -  It’s very easy to empty a bagless vacuum once it gets full, and since there is no bag to replace, you do not have to go shopping for anything. Simply empty the dust cup or canister into a garbage bag, clean it, and load it back on to the main unit, and you are ready to go.

Clear see-through collection canisters allow you to see objects that might be vacuumed up by mistake. You can’t do this with a bag and you must empty the bag and watch the contents as they come out, which is a messy job. Once you empty the canister, clean the filter and reinsert them both. This is much simpler than fussing with vacuum bags, exposing yourself to allergens and dirtying your hands.
