Slide 1: Vacuum Cleaner Bags

Vacuum 1

Your vacuum may have a large bag or container to collect debris, but that doesn’t mean you should wait until it’s full before emptying it. Most vacuums start to lose steam once the bag is about two-thirds full, so you should check the filter bag before you get started and stop occasionally to empty the contents in order to keep your vacuum operating at maximum efficiency.
