If you are remodeling your home, make sure you ask for the vacuum baseboard aka sweep inlets for your home. This awesome feature can be easily installed into a new or existing home. Buzzfeed recently listed the VacPan as one of the 31 Insanely Clever Remodeling Ideas For Your New Home. With a floor level sweep inlet, you can get rid of your old dustpan and let your central vacuum do the work. It’s simple to use. Just open the valve with a flick of your toe, sweep the debris near the opening with a broom, and your central vacuum system will whisk it away. This is great for kitchens, mudrooms, bathrooms, workshops, hair salons, retail stores, and any other hard surface high traffic areas where dirt accumulates quickly. They are most often located in the kickplate below your cabinets, but can also be mounted into the baseboards or even the workbench in the garage.
