Hi! I'm Steve Chubin and Steve's Sewing and Vacuum Center at King of Prussia, PA and today we are here to discuss how to buy a vacuum cleaner. Talking about the vacuum bags again, again this will be a paper bag versus what would be in here would be a cloth bag. Talking about how often you have to replace the bag. The vacuum bags generally last about a month to 2 months in a house. Obviously every house is going to be a little bit different. Depending on how much carpet you have, how many carpet fibers you have and how often you vacuum. Average vacuuming is based on 1 hour per week per vacuum in a home that would have a couple of kids. If you have pets and everything, you may vacuum everyday. I know quite a few people that do vacuum everyday. The bags in a vacuum cleaner are going to last you somewhere in the area of a month or 2 months so figuring a pack of bags which would be roughly 6 bags in a pack and could be anywhere from $10 to $20 for the pack, is going to last you approximately a year based on the average vacuuming of 1 hour a week. If you are going to be vacuuming everyday, then you are going to be going through maybe a bag every couple of weeks as opposed to a month or 2 months. Again, obviously having more pets, more kids, more pet hair, you are going to fill up a bag a lot quicker.
