Well, it depends on the type of vacuum you use. Vacuums with hepa filters are better than others with no hepa filter. Quality vacuums are better than cheaper store bought vacuums. My advice would be to do your research before purchasing a vacuum and don’t be afraid to spend more for a great vacuum that has the power to suck up anything in it’s path and that will last a long time. So the answer to this question is no if it is a good quality vacuum and yes if it isn’t. And vacuuming is better than sweeping or using feather dusters which will kick up dust.
I have gone through many and my advice to people would be to do some research before you buy. But all vacuums have their pros and cons. If you decide to go with any vacuum make sure it has HEPA Filtration. Proper care and maintenance for your vacuum is an important step in maximizing the life and it’s performance over many uses. Clean the filter every six months or more depending on the usage it gets. When you vacuum you’ll want to make sure you don’t max out the dirt level and never vacuum over wet areas which can cause mold to grow and/or foul smelling odors not to mention ruining the motor. I do prefer bagless HEPA filtration vacuums over bag vacuums because there is no need to stock up on the bags which saves me time and money. And no matter how hard I try at containing all the dirt in the bag when it needs to be changed is nearly impossible for me. I have to go and sweep/vacuum up the rest of the dirt that fell on the floor anyway. The Dyson has met all my wants and needs in a vacuum. It isn’t the cheapest and it isn’t the most expensive but it works amazingly.
