What are the features of an ecological vacuum cleaner?

Directing our purchasing decisions on increasingly environmentally friendly products has become a top priority for everyone. It also affects household appliances we can’t do without, such as vacuum cleaners. For this reason, even businesses that wish to market household appliances and are looking for a manufacturer to source their supplies from, should pay attention to the eco-sustainability factor.

But what are the features that an ecological vacuum cleaner should have to impact the environment as little as possible?

There are some factors that anyone should pay attention to when purchasing such an essential appliance that will be with us for a long time and that we will use almost daily.

Let’s take a look at the key elements that we should consider while choosing a quality product that is, as the same time, respectful of the environment.


The characteristics of an ecological vacuum cleaner

A top-quality ecological vacuum cleaner will show some specific functional and aesthetical characteristics and an excellent choice of materials, allowing the perfect combination of product quality and performance.

The main factors to pay attention to include:

  • Consumption: to define an “eco-friendly” vacuum cleaner, you will have to pay attention to its consumption in relation to your cleaning needs. As you know, a higher number of Watts usually corresponds to a higher suction capacity. Today, the market offers various energy-saving solutions: in the face of excellent performance, you will experience a lower ecological footprint in terms of consumption.
  • Recyclability: the vast majority of vacuum cleaners on the market are made of plastic for about 50% of their structure. However, most of these plastic elements can be recycled or are already recycled. For a truly ecological vacuum cleaner, please pay attention to its correct disposal and proper treatment once it’s no longer usable. Also remember that another material typically used to build vacuum cleaners is stainless steel, which is “clean” and environmentally friendly by nature.
  • No bags/Smart bags: compared to the past, when purchasing any vacuum cleaner also included the constant supply of paper bags, the industry now offers countless bagless solutions. In these appliances, the sucked-up dirt is conveyed directly into a container that can be easily emptied and washed after each use. This option is favored if you are looking for an ecological vacuum cleaner. However, you can still opt for traditional vacuum cleaners as long as their performance is high. Balance will always play a fundamental role in your choice.
  • Filter longevity: all vacuum cleaners are equipped with suitable filtration systems, but the more ecological ones have more durable filters than traditional solutions. For your “green” choice, we advise you to aim in this direction.
  • Multipurpose systems: new-generation ecological vacuum cleaners are often so-called “multipurpose”, i.e. they can have additional functions in addition to the classic suction. They could be, for example, blowers or wet vacuums. Choosing these products is undoubtedly an ecological approach, because it allows you to use a single appliance for a number of different operations, without the need for further exploitation of materials and subsequent disposal.
