Too, in a more commercial setting such as a woodshop or an office building, standard vacuums can make cleaning up a nuisance due to their heft, leading to unhappy custodial staff.

How Does a Central Vacuum Work and What are the Benefits

Facts About the Central Vacuum

What is a Central Vacuum?

Also known as a whole-house vacuum system, a central vacuum is built into the house. The source of power for the system comes from an engine that is usually located in the basement or garage. Instead of pushing the vacuum unit around, operators simply use an outlet in the wall that provides suction and removes dirt and debris to store it in the collection canister.

Studies show that over 20% of the population is affected by allergies or asthma. Irritants can be topical, such as a particular cleanser, internal, such as a certain food product, or airborne, such as pet dander or pollen. Two of these three can be mitigated with specific precautions – if you are allergic to a cleaning product, you use something else. If you are intolerant to peanuts, you avoid foods that contain them. But the airborne variety is quite a bit tougher – you can’t stop breathing! And those who suffer from asthma know all too well that it may not take much to trigger an attack – even common dust can be the antagonist.

BEAM – The Best Way To Vacuum!

A central vacuum system is engineered to clean your entire home– efficiently and effectively, without having to haul a portable vacuum cleaner or extension cords around the house.  The average vacuum cleaner can weigh two to three times what a BEAM hose and power head does – which is the only component of the system that you need to handle. Try vacuuming your stairs with a 25 pound Kirby and you will understand the advantage! Also, by removing dirt, dust and allergy causing particles it also cleans the air your family breathes. BEAM power units provide HEPA filtration, capturing fine allergen size dust particles to leave the air fresh and your house clean. Plug the hose into a wall outlet and let the central vacuum do the heavy lifting.

The MANY Advantages Of A Central Vacuum System
