Vacuums help speed up floor cleaning time very rapidly. However, there are some things that vacuums struggle to suck up. As a result, engineers have worked on technology that can increase vacuum efficiency, including new wind tunnel technology. These vacuums work especially well for allergy sufferers because the wind tunnels do not kick up allergens and instead suck them into the HEPA filter.
Most vacuums tend to create a mess with a lot of the dirt and dust, blowing this debris around the carpet. Therefore, engineers have worked to develop wind tunnel technology that tends to lift up the dirt, instead of scattering the dirt all around. The wind travels in a consistent direction instead of traveling in multiple directions simultaneously, which tends to exacerbate the mess. This technology tries to synchronize the vacuum suction with the brushes. This wind tunnel technology is especially effective at sucking up pet hair that tends to stick to the carpet and furniture. The wind tunnel creates a cyclonic cone of air that can more easily suck debris out of nooks and crannies. This air suction allows property owners to pick up dirt after vacuuming once, rather than having to go over the carpet two or three times.
These vacuums usually combine the suction with the HEPA filter so that homeowners do not have to worry about breathing in dust and debris. These HEPA filters automatically clean themselves, which reduces the amount of maintenance required. The HEPA filters are especially good for allergy sufferers since the vacuums remove dust mites, ragweed and pollen. Owners know the filter needs to be cleaned because an electronic alert system notifies them.
Vacuums with the wind tunnel technology do not use bags but instead use the canister. This helps save the vacuum owners money by allowing them to dispose of the bags, but the canisters can sometimes be messier than the bags, since the dirt and debris can miss the garbage and spill on to the floor.
The wind tunnel technology is often combined with dirt sensors that give homeowners a green light when the vacuum is finally clean while giving owners a red light if the floor still has dirt on it.
Vacuum owners can operate the wind tunnel at different speeds so that they can save energy when vacuuming up easier to pick up debris. Some of the vacuums work well for both carpets and hardwood floors because they have a device that shuts off the brushes on the vacuum.
