The Kirby Vacuum Really Pollutes Your Home

Through a particulate analysis, this video shows dirt, dust and contaminants leaking out of the Kirby Vacuum Cleaner. Watch and learn as I perform a side-by-side comparison with the Miele. My findings prove that the Miele Vacuum is completely sealed and truly is HEPA sealed. Wouldn't you rather have a vacuum cleaner that is sealed?

*Here's one email I recently received....

Nice Gerry, I knew the Kirby was bad, but I didn't think it was that bad. lol. I was informed that there is a steel plate between the fan and the motor but that seems a bit bogas because obviously there's 13 million particles that are coming through. I would like to see a test of the Simplicity Synergy cause I'm sure that they trap at 100% because they're sealed and I think they use a fancy bag don't they? But still between the Miele and a Kirby hands down Miele for reason #1 the Miele is about $600 cheaper on average, #2 it's warrantied for 7 years on the motor (Kirby is only 2 years, and they're supposed to last forever) and #3 the Miele works as you have proven many times over and over.

By the way school is going really good. I have really enjoyed my class, I have had a chance to use some nice vacuums :D and in the 2nd term will learn to use the riding floor machine and get certified to use a propane bunrisher. I am actually applying for an on campus job in the housekeeping department, hopefully I will be able to get that. Well, take care Gerry!

Thanks for the response Jon, much appreciated. As I've said before, don't you think Kirby and these other vacuum cleaner brands know the implications of leaking dust, bacteria and particulates back into the air? I think YES. As the years go by, where are the enhancements from technological innovations? None are evident.

In fact, I argue the contrary. Kirby, Dyson, Oreck, Bissel, Dirt Devil, Royal, Hoover, Eureka and all the other vacuums that I have tested/mentioned-- do not even attempt to improve the vacuum cleaner performance, emissions or suction.

These products are detrimental to the consumer's health.

It is what it is.
