Vacuum cleaners are common household appliances that help in cleaning up the home. They are electric appliances that clean surfaces by way of suction. Suction works on the principle of pressure. The strength of the suction normally depends on wattage and the number of amps. It is quite an appliance that has modern day age cleaning technology.
Today’s common quote is going green so we definitely can go green with the vacuum cleaners that we use meaning they should be products good for the environment. Some of the determinants as to whether a vacuum cleaner has green technology include durability ad power usage. The more the power usage, it certainly means that the vacuum cleaner is not eco friendly.Eco friendly vacuum cleaners must be quick and efficient.
Some of the accessories found on eco friendly vacuum cleaners include water tank with various capacities f instead of a waste bag, a blower function, a led power indicator and filter systems of up to 5 layers.
Eco friendly vacuum cleaners come with new features such as a water filter. With the water filters, the vacuum cleaner doesn’t need a disposable bag. It simply uses the natural water and the dust settles in the water. It is best for the environment as it just uses clean natural water. Some eco friendly vacuum cleaners come with canisters which are also more effective than the bags.
Due to the water filtration the dust settles into the water keeping the suction up 100% unlike the common vacuum cleaner with a dust bag where the dust stops inside the bag or on the filter and this way causes blockage which then reduces suction to almost 50%.This reduction of the suction causes more uptake of energy supply. The filtration makes vacuuming much faster and reduces energy consumption.
With the common vacuum cleaner the dust stops at the filterer the dust bag. As the sucked air goes through it will blow through the filter which will force the air out and thus create a very harmful environment with dirty air having eggs, pollen grain, pet hair which is a health hazard as we breathe in this dirt. Water filtered vacuum cleaners leave these pollutants in the water. The air is thus purified and cleaner than the outside air.
The eco friendly vacuum cleaners usage of water helps to clean up the best way possible as dust is caught up well with the use of static electricity like that of vacuums. The filtration system used helps to clean even very tiny pet hair and eggs. This increases its effectiveness.
The eco friendly vacuum cleaners can also be multi used as they are able to clean dry surfaces, wet surfaces and even liquids. This makes them much more functional. Some vacuum cleaners are also much quieter like the Electrolux Ultra Silencer which definitely makes it more eco friendly due to less noise.
