Eureka® AirSpeed® ABS Vacuum Offers a Hygienic Clean with Powerful Suction

Eureka® AirSpeed® ABS Vacuum Offers a Hygienic Clean with Powerful Suction

Consumers wishing to “bag” a cleaner home have a new tool at their fingertips.  The Eureka AirSpeed ABS upright vacuum cleaner combines the suction power of popular AirSpeed Technology with the sanitary, dust-locking features of a bagged vacuum to form a formidable opponent against dirt.  The result?  AirSpeed ABS cleans carpets better than Dyson DC25 at 1/2 the price!*

The force behind AirSpeed ABS’s powerful cleaning is its AirSpeed Technology. Most other vacuums propel air through a long nozzle and hose system full of twists and texturing, which results in lost suction. AirSpeed Technology uses two wide smooth tubes with limited bends and turns, allowing more air to pass through the vacuum. The direct air path from floor to dust cup decreases the distance for dirt to travel, which increases the amount of airflow for powerful suction.


Cleaning Power of a Bagged Vacuum

Unlike other models in the AirSpeed line – all of which are bagless – AirSpeed ABS uses replaceable, disposable bags to capture dust and debris and completely contain dirt and allergens.


“We know from our research that more than 70 percent of consumers interested in bagged vacuums are attracted to these models’ cleanliness and believe they are more sanitary compared to bagless options**,” said Allison Duy, director of marketing services for Eureka. “For this reason, we put our AirSpeed Technology in a bagged model to provide another powerful cleaning option for our customers.”


Allergy sufferers and those sensitive to dust may find bagged vacuums like AirSpeed ABS to be especially beneficial because all of the dirt and debris is contained inside the bag. AirSpeed ABS’s Quick “Clean-Lock” bag change system simplifies the process of changing the high filtration bag. It prevents collected dust from escaping back into the air, and allows the user to dispose of collected dirt and dust without coming into contact with the debris.


“Our designers took the hygienic properties of a bagged vacuum and went one step further with AirSpeed ABS,” Duy said. “This vacuum combines powerful suction with several features that appeal to those who want to keep dust and dirt completely contained.”


In addition to the cleanliness of removing the vacuum bag, consumers desire bagged vacuums like AirSpeed ABS because they have a larger capacity to hold dust and dirt.* The larger dust capacity means less stopping and more efficient cleaning for consumers. And for those concerned about finding and purchasing the correct bags for a bagged vacuum, the AirSpeed Bagged includes a one-year supply of premium ARM & HAMMER® vacuum bags. ARM & HAMMER vacuum bags retain up to 100 percent of dust mite debris and grass and ragweed pollens. After the first year, ARM & HAMMER Vacuum Accessories can easily be purchased at Walmart stores nationwide.


Other features of Airspeed ABS include a HEPA filter, which captures 99.97 percent of dust and allergens, and a stair and upholstery brush that removes dust, allergens and pet dander from upholstery backs and stair risers. For additional cleaning convenience, the vacuum’s 12-foot hose and 27-foot cord offer a combined 39 feet of cleaning reach.


Eureka AirSpeed ABS will retail for $129.88 at Walmart and beginning in September. For additional information about AirSpeed models, consumers can visit or call 1-800-282-2886.
