Fast and safe cleaning is the dream of every housewife. What characteristics should the best bagless vacuum cleaners in 2022 have, how to make the right choice, which models to pay attention to — KP understands together with experts
Bagless vacuum cleaners for home cleaning are a relatively recent invention. Vacuum cleaners of this type were originally intended for industrial cleaning, then the technology spread to other areas of application.
The best bagless vacuum cleaners are economical: they do not require the purchase of consumables, for cleaning it is enough to empty the dust container and dust the filters. Ease of use does not affect the quality of cleaning in any way: bagless models are often superior in power to conventional ones. This allows you to work effectively with fine dust and pet hair.
This technique is an unambiguous choice for allergy sufferers: dust settles in a container and does not accelerate throughout the room. Cleaning the filter and container can be assigned to another family member.
The disadvantages include the accumulation of static electricity on the body of the vacuum cleaner, which can be an unpleasant surprise for children or pets. The problem is solved by thorough cleaning of the container after each cleaning: the equipment requires maintenance.

How to choose a bagless vacuum cleaner
Help users understand the range of bagless vacuum cleaners Agreed Maxim Sokolov, expert of the online hypermarket VseInstrumenty.ru.
- Cleaning in different types of bagless vacuum cleaners can occur in different ways.
The principle of operation of cyclone models is based on centrifugal force. Dust is sucked into the chamber, its particles remain in the container. The main part of the debris remains on the camera filter, there are exit filters for fine dust. The degree of purification is up to 97%. The main advantage of cyclonic cleaning is the constant suction power, which is not affected by the fullness of the container.
Models with output filtering form a group of so-called. household vacuum cleaners. Filters can be fabric or cartridge. Dust and debris are collected in the tank. A common disadvantage of this class is a decrease in suction efficiency when the filter is clogged. Long cleaning periods require frequent cleaning breaks.
In vacuum cleaners with an aquafilter, filtration is carried out using water. They should not be confused with detergents: water does not leave the tank, it is used only for filtration, and there is no spraying. Models in this category are better than others to cope with dust microparticles.
Bagless vacuum cleaners are quite reliable. The period of effective operation depends not only on the technical characteristics of the model, but also on proper operation. It is necessary to clean or rinse the filters regularly so that the suction power does not decrease. After each cleaning, regardless of its volume, it is necessary to clean the container.
