What is a Central Vacuum System?
A VacuMaid® central vacuum system can reduce the amount of allergens in your home by extracting dirt, dust, mold, pollen, and pet dander out of your carpet and furnishings – and it’s simple. The system sends these allergens through the network of hidden tubing in your walls to the dirt can located in a remote area of your home. By doing this, the central vacuum system rids your home of these potentially harmful irritants–unlike most portable vacuum cleaners, which leave much of the fine dust recirculating in the air. Also, by having a central vacuum vented to the outside of your home, it is possible to remove even the smallest of particles from your living environment. The power unit is placed in the garage with the dirt canister near the garage door. This allows for easy emptying of the canister and placement of a utility valve for cleaning out your car. The power unit is placed in a more remote location. The tubing can be run through the attic, basement or in the floors. Inlets are placed strategically in hallways.
With VacuMaid® you receive only the highest quality central vacuum system. Our power units feature long life motors, superior filtration, and durable construction. The cyclonic systems have, by far, the most sustainable cleaning power in the industry allowing virtually 100% cleaning power at all times. The cyclonic action separates the fine particles, venting them outside. The power unit canister is constructed from corrosion-resistant powder coated galvannealed steel providing you with a system that lasts as long as you own your home.
There are many additional benefits of owning a VacuMaid central vacuum system.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
With a VacuMaid® central vacuum system, you have the power and versatility to make your home healthy for you and your family. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, “the air inside your home can be even more polluted than the outside air of most industrialized cities.” Since people spend an average of 90% of their time indoors, indoor air quality becomes a large issue, especially if you or anyone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma. One way to combat this problem and attack the harmful allergens and irritants is with a central vacuum system.
With 20% of the population affected by allergies or asthma, it is important that you rid your home of these harmful irritants.1 Dustmites, pet dander, dust, mold, and pollen are the leading cause of indoor allergies. Keeping your carpets dry and cleaning your home with a central vacuum system will help rid you of these allergens.
A study conducted by the University of California-Davis School of Medicine2 states that use of a central vacuum system can greatly reduce allergy and asthma symptoms.
