SEOUL, KOREA - Vacuum cleaners are selling like hot cakes at Hi-Mart due to growing public concerns about fine dust and the coming of the spring cleaning season when people like to get rid of all the stuff they’ve been hoarding during the winter.


A Hi-Mart official said, “Vacuum cleaners, together with air purifiers, are enjoying rising popularity as a solution to protect people from fine dust.”

He added, “Most of the consumers who visit the shop to buy vacuum cleaners, show stronger preference toward premium-level vacuum cleaners which are mounted with higher-performance filters.”

The price of premium cleaners mounted with a H13 class HEPA filter and is almost free from the emission of fine dust, is 20-30 percent higher than that of general vacuum cleaners.

During the period from November 2013 to February 2014 when the fine dust problem has become a social issue, the sales of general-type vacuum cleaners marked a positive year-on-year growth of 25 percent.

In particular, the sales of handheld light mini-cleaners rose 35 percent, while the sales of mini cleaners for use in automobiles jumped 40 percent.
