If you've got a bagged vacuum cleaner then it will lose suction power when the vacuum bag becomes too full. This means the vacuum cleaner will become less effective at collecting dust, dirt and debris from your carpets and floors.
Avoid over-filling the vacuum bag
Knowing the best time to change the vacuum bag can ensure your vacuum cleaner maintains a consistent level of performance. You should never wait for the vacuum bag to be completely full as over-stuffing the vacuum bag will only restrict air flow and diminish pick-up performance.
Change the vacuum bag when it's ¾ full
If your vacuum cleaner has an indicator light, it will prompt you when it's time to change the bag. However, if your vacuum doesn't have this feature you need to check the bag regularly and replace it when it's about ¾ full. Changing a vacuum bag before it's full is better for the vacuum and can help extend the lifespan of the cleaner.
When it comes to buying replacement vacuum bags for your cleaner, there are a few options to consider before you purchase. The first is whether to opt for a genuine replacement or a pattern bag.
Genuine Replacement Vacuum Bags
Genuine vacuum bags are made by the original manufacturer of the vacuum cleaner and are designed to be 'like for like' replacements, specifically developed for your model of vacuum.
Pattern Replacement Vacuum Bags
Our pattern vacuum bags are manufactured to the highest standards to provide comparable quality to the genuine alternative. They are specifically designed to offer fantastic value for money.
You also need to make sure that the vacuum bags are suitable for your model of vacuum cleaner. Our quick finder is the easiest way to find the right vacuum bags for you. Simply enter the make of your vacuum cleaner and the vacuum cleaner model number, which is usually printed on the casing, base or rear of the vacuum. This will show all bags that are compatible with your cleaner.
Please be aware that Vacuum Bags are also known as:
Dust Bags / Paper Bags / Vacuum Cleaner Bags
The following are tips that will apply to the majority of vacuum cleaner models.
Changing the vacuum bag is the perfect opportunity to give the vacuum cleaner a quick check over and take care of any essential maintenance.
Check the agitator brush
Clean or replace the filter
Make sure all the filters on your vacuum cleaner are cleaned regularly otherwise they can become clogged which results in the vacuum cleaner losing suction. Over time cleaning may no longer be sufficient and the filters will need to be replaced.
Check the drive belt
