is your vacuum cleaner spitting out more dust that it picks up? or simply smells like dust or dog or smokes? You most definitely need a new filter! If you think your vacuum cleaner doesent have a filter,think again... its there hiding somewhere and its probably the source of all your vacuum cleaning troubles! in fact most vacuum cleaner have at least two filers; one exhaust and one motor filter. The exhaust filter will prevent for small particles of dust to escape back into the room and that makes it a pretty important filter for maintaining health and well being at your household. The motor filter is protecting the motor from larger particles that may slow down its performance if too much dust makes its way inside the vacuum motor.
Generic vs original filters - we often get asked if generic is as good as original filter to answer this question we need to address a few different sides and the answer can vary depending on what filters we are comparing. so firstly in general there isn't much difference as long as they are rated the same for example original Miele charcoal filter will be not significantly different to a quality generic compatible Miele charcoal filter. or an electrolux h13 hepa filter will be almost the same as its generic h13 hepa option. secondly, the price can be as much as tripple for an original vs generic for example a Miele original hepa filter is around $60 but its generic option can be as low as $20. The verdict is, if you havent tried a generic filter you should at least give it ago once, if you are happy you can afford to change your filter more often or at least same some serious dollars.
