What to know when purchasing a central vacuum system.

Healthy Home Benefits of Owning a Central Vacuum System

Healthy Home Benefits of Owning a Central Vacuum System.

With a Central Vacuum System you have a modern household appliance suited to busy family life-styles.
Central Vacuum Systems are equipped with self-cleaning filters, many from the makers of Gore-Tex Fabric (known as the best in filtration to date). So the central vacuum system will always be at optimal cleaning performance. Purchase of vacuum filter bags is optional for those who desire the optimum in filtration and unit maintenance. Central Vacuum Systems are designed for high durability and longevity.

Central Vacuum Systems remove virtually all the dirt, dust, and debris from the living area to the collection bucket, and the clean filtered air is exhausted from the power unit to the outside. Many units are designed to be installed without the need to vent outdoors as a result of improved filtration systems. The resulting benefit is, Central Vacuum Systems create a better indoor living climate and highly reduce allergy symptoms.

Central Vacuum Systems use tubing installed in the walls of your home to carry dirt, dust and allergens away from living areas to the central power unit and collection canister located in your chosen area such as the garage or mechanical room.

To activate the system, plug the hose into the wall inlet. (An average home has three inlets.) The flexible lightweight hose and inlet system allow you to move from room to room for easy whole-house cleaning convenience. Power units located outside of the living area keep things quiet in the living areas.
Central vacuum systems remove100% of contacted dust, mites, pollen, animal dander and other allergens, and are superior to conventional vacuums in providing relief from allergy symptoms.
High quality Central Vacuum Systems require no filters or screens to clean or replace and utilize permanent self-cleaning filtration material.
( GORE-TEX fabric being the choice for best filtration).

By using cyclonic forces to separate larger dirt particles and allergens from vacuumed air, the permanent filter can remove particles at a stunning 98% efficiency at 0.3 microns.

Dust particles do not stick to self-cleaning filter surfaces like conventional filter media. And most importantly, power is not lost as the bucket fills up, allowing high level performance time after time.
You will be making a wise choice to invest in your families health by creating a healthy home environment with a built-in central vacuum system.
Be sure to shop out the differences in quality for filtration issues, size of unit appropriate for the application, size and quality of hose and power-heads and other accessories that you will be needing.
Make your choice a good one.

Don’t forget the benefits of Carpet!

Brooks Carpet Clinic Ltd.
November 27, 2013

Why clean your carpets regularly?
Carpet is a great choice for comfort, appeal and health in the indoor environment and in many cases is the affordable approach to decorating.
As we use our carpeted areas, we bring in the same pollutants that we clean up off any hard surface.
The deal with carpet is, because of it’s highly forgivable nature, we tend to forget to give it the care that is required. As a result, it is not unusual to see heavily soiled and worn traffic areas caused by this lack of attention.
Regular vacuuming with high efficient particle arrest equipment, only available through your local vacuum sales and service provider, is the recommended weekly or daily care practice, determined by the amount of traffic in the given areas.
Also, hot water extraction by qualified service providers is a must to do a proper removal of the soils that cling and discolor your carpet, just the same as why we scrub our hard surfaces more regularly.
Deep down particles of dust and sand can cut at the base of the fibers, causing the abrading or cutting off of these fine fibers, resulting in a lesser appearance and shortened life of your carpet.
Regular, proper cleaning preserves appearance and life of your carpets, keeping their appeal for the entire life time.
Carpets act like a filter as well and become what will usually be the best dust and allergen control system in any indoor environment maintained as described above.
Carpets are warm, soft to walk on and noise reducers as well as dust and allergen control systems by their nature.
Remember, hard surfaces require constant cleaning to produce an allergen free environment with little forgiveness in needed attention.

“Green” Understood or Abused for Profit or Market Positioning?

“Green” Understood or Abused for Profit or Market Positioning?

 

January 25
I was looking through some interactions in the past and felt this blurb would be of help to many who are learning, “thinking green”. It does not relate to any specific product, it relates to our mindset as we come to understand “Green”, as it is very abused in marketing and application today. For example, “is it really a green product or process?” The answer relates to how, why, where, when and what is used or done. Many of the old products and processes deemed not green now, may be green used and done right, in comparison to new uses and methods done wrong, due to a total lack of understanding by promoters of green, in an effort to procure a share in the market. Does it matter if we care about our clients, or is getting the market share more important and the cost of ignorance to be others problems?

Bed Bugs, How to Deal With Them

Many of us are concerned when it comes to traveling or even visiting about bedbugs. We have clients calling us about this many times asking about How_To_Get_Rid_Of_Bed_Bugs.

The transfer of bedbugs is something to think about. Taking the sofa that is free, or the bed set that is for sale may not be a good idea. If we have been visiting, where have we been and how did we handle our clothing, suitcases and other things that could attract bedbugs? If we know about a bedbug issue where we are going, we want to be sure to check things out before taking accommodation or possession of potentially infested places or items.
