Vacuum cleaners are differentiated by a wide variety of features e.g. the brand, number of accompanying accessories and even the price. However, any vacuum sales person will be quick to point out that one of the most distinguishing factors between vacuum cleaners is the method through which they dispose of the dirt they collect. In this respect, there are two types of vacuums i.e. bagged and bagless.
Of the two, bagged vacuums i.e. vacuums that use numatic paper dust bags, have been in existence the longest and are considered to be more superior for a variety of reasons.
Vacuums with numatic paper dust bags make it easier to dispose of dirt accumulated by the cleaner since the dirt pools inside a closed bag. Unlike the bagless alternative that requires inverting the vacuum and dumping the contents into a bin which can cause an unhealthy cloud of dust, the numatic bags ensure all the dirt and allergens never escape back into the air during disposal since the bag is tossed away without the need to expose the contents.
Over the years, technology has made it possible for numatic bags to hold securely very tiny dirt particles and prevent them from escaping back into the atmosphere during and after vacuuming. The bags have cotton liner insulation on the inside to ensure the material is not porous to allow any leakages.
Overall, vacuums that rely on numatic paper dust bags require less maintenance than their bagless counterparts. This is because such bags can sustain up to 2 pounds of particle waste which means they don’t require frequent replacement. 10 numatic dust bags currently cost £5.51. This is very cheap considering the bags can be used for almost half a year assuming the bags are always full before disposal. Also, unlike bagless vacuums that require constant replacement of HEPA filters, the filters are built into the numatic paper bags which eliminate the need to purchase them separately thus further contributing to their cost effectiveness.
Preferred by allergy sufferers.
Users prone to allergies by dust and pollen prefer vacuums that use the numatic paper dust bags since these bags are airtight and extremely effective in trapping minute dust particles and other contaminants. The cotton liner insulation inside the bags makes it virtually impossible for any particles to escape back into the air after suction and cause health complications.
The bags possess a double micro filtration that traps up to 99 percent of pollen, mites, dust and other microscopic particles as small as 0.1 microns.
The numatic bags also have a plastic closure or sticky cardboard paper that is used to seal the bag’s opening to further prevent dust from leaking once the bag has been disposed of.
Compatible Vacuum Models:
Some of the vacuum models that support numatic dust bags include the Henry HVC200, the JVR225 Commercial NV200, HVR200 James JVC235, NV/SE250/350, and the NV225.
The numatic paper dust bags used are equivalent to the bags of type NVM1C and NVMIB. All the bags are supplied in packs of 10.
