Vacuum Cleaner Bags

vacuum bags 1Vacuum cleaner bags are used for collecting vacuumed dirt and for dirt disposal and they may be either reusable or disposable vacuum cleaner bags.

Reusable vacuum bags help the user keep costs to minimum, but emptying the reusable dirt bag and reusing it, may make a mess.

Disposable vacuum bags are thrown into the garbage together with the collected dirt - as such, they may increase the unit's cost, but replacing disposable vacuum bag is generally done rather quickly and easy. After all, many modern disposable vacuum bags feature auto-seal collars that prevent the dirt from escaping the bag.

Vacuum bags are commonly made using various types of papers or cloth, with best brands making multilayered disposable vacuum bags with randomly spun fibers, helping such units achieve high level of air filtration - some bags even offer true HEPA air filtration (they capture at least 99.97% of 0.3 microns or larger particles).

While some bagged canisters feature 'vacuum bag full' sensors, many models don't feature such systems - it is up to the user to notice when the suction is decreased, and when it is time to change the bag.

Note: when vacuuming very fine dirt, it is possible to clog the fine pores of high-quality vacuum bags and that suction decreases even when the bag is not entirely filled with dirt. When that happens, replace the bag - by capturing fine dirt particles, vacuum bag not only collected it, but also protected the suction motor and prevented the dirt from being returned into the cleaned room. It's worth a semi-filled disposable vacuum bag ...

To help pet owners, some vacuum bags feature a layer of activated carbon, which captures pet and other odors like odors from cooking, smoking and similar.

OEM or Non-OEM Vacuum Bags?

Personally, always go for OEM vacuum bags, even if they cost slightly more than non-OEM vacuum bags.

Such vacuum bags are built according to the specifications, and non-OEM bags are rarely better than OEM vacuum bags.

But, if you have an older bagged vacuum and its manufacturer doesn't make disposable vacuum bags for that model, non-OEM bags are the only way to go ...
