With bag vs. without a bag

Vacuum cleaner with bag


With a vacuum cleaner with bag, dust enters a vacuum cleaner bag that is in the vacuum cleaner. If it is full, replace the bag. It is important to do this regularly. The suction power of the vacuum cleaner decreases when the dust bag becomes full.

  • Larger collection capacity
  • Changing bag is simple and hygienic
  • Noise level is lower
  • Less dust in the vacuum cleaner
  • Suction power decreases when dust bag gets full
  • You have to buy new dust bags
Bagless vacuum


Dust ends up in a dust container with a bagless vacuum cleaner. This is often transparent so that you see when it is time to empty it. You simply do this over a trash can, but it is a dusty job. So make sure you have a wide trash can or do it outside.

  • Lower energy consumption
  • Suction does not decrease when dust bin becomes full
  • You save costs on vacuum bags
  • Emptying the dust container is dusty
  • Noise level is higher

Usage situation and wishes package

Which vacuum cleaner suits you best depends mainly on your usage situation and the wishes you have. There are situations in which you can better opt for a vacuum cleaner with a bag or without a bag. What is important to you?

Bagged vacuum

Allergies vacuum cleaner


If you are allergic, a HEPA 13 filter or higher is especially important. There are vacuum cleaners with bag and without bag that have this filter. But a vacuum cleaner bag works as an extra filter. In addition, changing the bag is more hygienic than emptying the dust container. So if you are very allergic or very sensitive to dust, then I recommend choosing a vacuum cleaner with bag from the list of vacuum cleaners suitable for allergies.

Pets vacuum


Do you have pets, then you also have regular dog or cat hairs in the house. If these have been in the dust collection of a vacuum cleaner for a while, it may be that you are going to smell this. A vacuum cleaner bag also works as an odor filter in this case. During the emptying these odors do not return to the room. Choose from the list of vacuum cleaners suitable for animal hairs a vacuum cleaner with bag if you like.

Bagless vacuum

constant suction

Constant suction power

Bagless vacuum cleaners generally have cyclonic technology. This is the technology that ensures that the suction power does not decrease when the dust container becomes full. In addition, the advantage is that the dust containers are transparent, so you can easily see if you have to empty it. This way you are never with a too full dust bin and you do not lose suction power.

save costs vacuum cleaner without bag

Save costs

We recommend replacing dust bags once every 3 months. As a result, the costs you make when buying vacuum cleaner bags are the best. Because you do not need vacuum cleaner bags for bagless vacuum cleaners, you save a lot of money on not buying vacuum cleaner bags.
