Bagless vacuum cleaners, are they worth the investment? 

I need a new vacuum soon. I was wondering if bagless vacuum cleaners are a good investment or not. I keep reading that to replace the filters is expensive and they also cause built up dust or hair. 

If you have an opinion or experience with owning a bagless vacuum share what vacuum you own and experience related.

I've had a bagless vacuum for years, a cheap one at that, and it has never failed me.  I've never even had to replace a filter.

I also have a small shark for hardwood. It works great but the battery life is horrible!

You have to clean the filters with bag less or they get bad. You just run water through it make sure it's fully clean and LET IT FULLY DRY. If its not fully dry it can really mess it up too. Takes at least a day to fully dry and you only have to do it once a month depending on how much you use it.

You could get a rainbow vaccuum.

It has a resevoir of water that everything goes into.. All you have to do is before you use it fill it up. When done empty it. But it can be used for more than just vacuuming. I mean you can add a few drops and set it in a room and it will freshen the air. It's awesome. I don't have one anymore. But I really wanna get one. And I don't have any carpet. I just have rugs. I love that thing. 


Allergies were not a problem with that thing around. Pet hair and stuff... not a problem at all. unless they laid down on my clothes directly.

They are good in my opinion. I just have a cheap Dirt Devil one. I have only replaced the filter once in the three years I have had it.
