Whole House Vacuum System

An easy way to keep your home clean is to install a central vacuum system. These systems come with a lightweight hose and cleaning head. One of the many benefits of a central vacuum cleaner is that the dust and dirt are contained in the tubing which is set up through the walls of your home and the central set up is typically in the garage or basement.

Since the motor of the vacuum is located in the set up area you can use your vacuum cleaner while someone else in your family is watching TV or on the phone without it bothering them.

The dust and dirt go into the canisters through the tubing in the walls of your home. The canisters normally only need to be emptied 2 or 3 times a year. This helps to prevent the allergens from blowing back into your home after you vacuum.

When choosing the correct type of central vacuum equipment you must consider the size of your home and the amount of piping you will need to plan on to reach every area of your home.

Central Vacuum cleaners are much more powerful and able to clean up dirt and dust far better than your typical plug in vacuum cleaner

If your house is 3,000 square feet or more, 3 or 4 inlets will work for the set up of your central vacuum cleaner. If your home is smaller, 1 or 2 inlets will work. Inlets are best located on the base of the interior walls.

A 30 foot hose is the normal size for a 3,000 square foot home that will allow you to vacuum 2 more rooms at a time, reaching each corner to keep all of your rooms clean.

Make sure you have the proper suction in your central vacuum cleaner to be powerful enough to get your cleaning done in an easy and effective manner.
