Built-in Central Vacuum Systems:
Central vacuum systems are also called ducted vacuum systems, central vacuum cleaners, built-in vacuum systems, built-in vacuum cleaners or central vacuums and are an innovative way of vacuuming a home. Built-in vacuums are the pinnacle of efficiency, not only saving time and energy, but add value to your home and also eliminating the noise, smell, and costly upkeep of portable vacuum cleaners.
Today, most families spend 90% of their time indoors. However dirt, allergens and other debris can be picked up from outside and brought back into your home. Air pollutants in the home can be a major contributor to health issues such as asthma, fatigue, itchy eyes and even sleeping problems
Traditional vacuum cleaners allow too much dust to re circulate – on your rugs, furniture and throughout your home. The result: indoor air pollutant levels are two to five times, and in some cases 100 times higher than outdoor levels.
Central vacuum systems are fast becoming one of the more popular household appliances in South Africa because of its ease of service and the convenience of use. You can basically reattach the hose to any outlet and work with it from there without needing to drag the machine around behind you.
Our central vacuum systems are unique and we offer the widest selection of built-in vacuum systems (more than 70 models) in South Africa. We also offer the widest range of hose and attachments, accessories, replacement motors, and spare parts which can also be fitted on Electrolux, Allegro, Beam Built-in Vacuums, Va cu-Maid, Silent Master, Premier Clean, Auskay, and Vacuflo central vacuum systems.
Benefits of installing a Central Vacuum System
Central vacuum systems totally eliminate the re-circulation of dirty air inside your living area. All the harmfully dust and allergens like dust mite excrement, animal dander, cockroach excrement, pollen and indoor molds are quietly transported to the unit located outside the building into the filtration system.
As with other built-in appliances, investing in a central vacuum system increases the market value of your home, building up equity in your property as you improve it.
With up to 5 times more cleaning power than most portable vacuum cleaners you get a superior clean in less time.
Just connect the lightweight hose to any conveniently located inlet. No heavy unit to pull, push or drag up stairs, no switches, and no electrical cords to keep tripping
Central Vacuum Cleaners eliminates the loud, irritating noise of portable vacuum cleaners because the power unit is not only acoustically insulated, it is also located outside your living area.
Dozens of attachments designed to clean any type of surface: carpeting, wood and tile floors, draperies, furniture, crevices, corners, staircases, ceiling fans, mini blinds, cars, etc.
Indoor Air Quality
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that indoor air pollution is a major health risk –– indoor air pollutants can accumulate at 2 to 100 times higher concentrations than outdoor pollution.
Biological Contaminants in homes
Biological contaminants include bacteria, molds, mildew, viruses, animal dander and cat saliva, house dust, mites, cockroaches, and pollen. There are many sources of these pollutants. Pollens originate from plants; viruses are transmitted by people and animals; bacteria are carried by people, animals, and soil and plant debris; and household pets are sources of saliva and animal dander. The protein in urine from rats and mice is a potent allergen. When it dries, it can become airborne. Contaminated central air handling systems can become breeding grounds for mold, mildew, and other sources of biological contaminants and can then distribute these contaminants through the home.
Health Effects From Biological Contaminants
Some biological contaminants trigger allergic reactions, including hypersensitivity pneumonitis, allergic rhinitis, and some types of asthma. Infectious illnesses, such as influenza, measles, and chicken pox are transmitted through the air. Molds and mildews release disease-causing toxins. Symptoms of health problems caused by biological pollutants include sneezing, watery eyes, coughing, shortness of breath, dizziness, lethargy, fever, and digestive problems.
