Bag vs. Bagless Vacuum: Are Bagless Vacuums Better for Allergies?

When trying to keep your home or office free of harmful allergens, do you know the differences between a bag vs. bagless vacuum? These differences, though seemingly subtle, could make a big impact on your overall respiratory health. Bagless vacuum cleaners are a popular option for allergy sufferers. That’s because bagless vacuums don’t hold onto or release any of the allergens that tend to exist in traditional bagged vacuums.

In this blog post, we’ll talk about bag vs. bagless vacuum and how they differ from each other. We’ll also show you why you should choose a special type of bagless water vacuum from Sirena if you’re an allergy sufferer.

Bag vs. Bagless Vacuum

Bag vs. Bagless Vacuum Processes Compared

Typical vacuums that use bags operate by sucking up the dirt and debris. They do it through a bag that is located inside of the vacuum. The bag is meant to contain all of the dust, hair, and other particles. That is so they don’t escape back into the air while you’re cleaning. The problems with bag-based vacuum cleaners tend to stem from dust and other particles spreading when removing the bag. Or, while doing the vacuuming itself. Since this type of vacuum is prone to clogs, dusty air can be kicked back out into your environment.

Bagless vacuums work differently. As the name suggests they do not use bags, but not all of them work the same. Instead of a bag, there is a filter or collection bin at the base of the vacuum where all of the dirt and debris accumulates. This has two benefits for allergy sufferers. First, it means that no allergens get back into the air as you’re cleaning. Second, it means that you can easily see when the vacuum needs to be emptied so that there’s no build-up of dirt and dust.

Water Vacuums as a Solution

Many allergy sufferers choose vacuums with water filtration systems as a hedge against particles escaping while cleaning. A water vacuum works by sucking in particles to the water filter basin, and as such it’s capable of trapping tiny particles that a vacuum may otherwise miss or let escape. Not every type of water vacuum cleans with the same precision, however, and it’s important to understand why before purchasing one of your own.

A good water vacuum can remove particles down to the micron level, which is one-millionth of a meter. To give a better idea of the scale, know that both pollen and bacteria particles are larger than this measurement and therefore easily picked up and trapped by a water vacuum. This means that water vacuums can help eliminate allergens not only from dust, but also from mold spores and other microscopic irritants.

Light, does a nice job

Karen Brady (Palm Coast, FL)

So thrilled to get my new Sirena vacuum. Years ago my mother had a rexair which was the same water principal. I've wanted one ever since. Now I have it! Have used it twice so far with excellent results. I feel I can breathe better plus the suction is terrific for getting up pet hair and such. I am an avid quilter so this vacuum gets all those little threads and lint balls that fly everywhere. Love it!

The Best Vacuum for a whole new meaning to clean

I purchased the sirena vacuum a couple of years ago and I absolutely love it. The air seems cleaner after vacuuming. So I just purchased the sirena cordless vacuum. This is why sirena only got 4 stars. My one and only problem with the cordless vacuum is that it is a little bit short. Maybe just me but it feels like it should be longer. But awesome job sirena!! You out did filter queen and I did not think that was possible. Thank you Sirena!!

Very Good Machine

Been using an upright for years that has HEPA filters. The filters have to be cleaned regularly and dust still seeps through and escapes back into the air. Wife has very sensitive nose and would leave the room
when I was vacuuming. The Sirena doesn’t allow any dust to escape and my wife is much happier now. The Sirena does require more storage space and set up time to get started vacuuming but works very well for cleaning.

Happy customer

My old Rainbow vac died on me after 30 + years of service. I was searching for something similar and found the Sirena. It was delievered very quickly after ordering on line. It was just what I wanted, similar to my old friend but better In Several ways. The price compared to another brand was great and the pick up is far better. I’m a happy customer.
