What type of vacuum do I need?

The house is full of dust and you want to get rid of it. There are various types of vacuums, but you're not entirely sure which vacuum you should buy. You can choose between bagged or bagless vacuums, stick vacuums, handheld vacuums, and robot vacuums. In this article, I'll tell you what to use these types of vacuums for.

Bagged vacuum

Bagged vacuums

Bagged vacuums usually have a large collection capacity, so you won't need to change the bag often. In addition to collecting dust, the bag also functions as an extra filter. This means there's low dust re-emission, making a bagged vacuum more likely to be suitable for people with allergies.

  • Bagged vacuums often have a large collection capacity.
  • The bag also functions as a filter to keep the exhaust air clean.
  • Recurring costs for the bags are a disadvantage.

Bagless vacuum
