WHAT IS A BUILT-IN CENTRAL VACUUM SYSTEM?

Sometimes known as built-in vacuum systems, ducted vacuum cleaners, central vacuum cleaners, central vacuum systems or even in-home vacuum systems, central vacuum systems are becoming very popular in recent times.

A unit mounted in a cupboard, garage or even under a sink (with or without bags) is connected to a 50.8mm PVC pipe that runs to various points around the house, terminating at a wall inlets. These covered inlets at low level are similar in size to a standard light switch and once these and the unit are installed the system is ready to use. Once a special vacuum hose is inserted into the outlets it automatically switches the unit on and vacuuming can begin.

Unlike the traditional vacuum cleaners, a Central Vacuum Cleaner really does remove dirt, dust, dust mites, pollens and other allergens from your living rooms. They provide cleaner indoor air by efficiently removing particles without stirring up microscopic dust particles and re-emitting them into the interior of the home. The vacuum receptacle is vented outside of the living space, keeping the air inside free of the pollutants. Central Vacuum system delivers two to three times more power to lift out dirt, dust mites and animal dander from rugs, drapes and furniture upholstery. They then vent it all outside – safely, quietly, permanently to eliminate this proven health risk.

Expert Allergy Advice

We offer the highest quality allergy relief products to help alleviate your suffering. Call us today for advice with your specific allergy situation.

EXPERT ADVICE

DUST MITES

For dust mites the best thing to do is use washable bedding. Many use throws, blankets and quilts that are seldom washed, and these fabrics often are a home for dust mites. To treat for dust mites, wash bedding in hot water. Parents of children with dust mite allergies also need to be careful of other cloth products that are not washable such as stuffed animals.

Dust mites prefer warm humid environments, so using a dehumidifier can help. It is advisable to keep humidity below 55 percent.

Dust mites also love to live in carpets and rugs, therefore the optimum floor covering for dust mites are hardwood, tile and vinyl. Basically any fabric, especially heavy fabric can be a haven for dust mites. Additionally, using hypoallergenic and dust mite proof covers on bedding will help create a dust mite free living space.

MOLD AND MILDEW

Mold spores are everywhere. That becomes problematic if you are allergic or otherwise sensitive to mold in the air. That we can’t avoid. What we can avoid is creating an environment where mold thrives and begins to grow and spread in a humid, wet environment.  When left unchecked, mold can become dangerous even when you are not allergic.

Basements are a cooler area of a home and therefore this is where water condensation can occur, creating a prime environment for mold growth. Using a dehumidifier in a basement can help avoid mold taking hold and growing in your home.

Fixing any leaks in your plumbing is another good way to avoid mold growth. You can use bleach to clean up small areas of mold, though you should seek remediation and inspection from professionals if you suspect you have mold growing in your home.

PET DANDER

Another big allergy problem in homes is pet dander. Pets have allergens in their saliva and on their skin that irritate the allergies on many. Aside from not having pets at all, there are a few things you can do to limit the allergies due to pets.

One remedy is to keep the pets out of the bedroom. This allows for relief in the rooms where allergy sufferers spend the bulk of their time. Don’t allow a pet to sleep in your bed with you since the fabric you wear and sleep in can spread the pet dander all around your home. Try to keep your pets in non-carpeted areas of your house.  

HEPA FILTERS

HEPA is an acronym for high-efficiency particulate air. A HEPA filter works by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps allergenic particles such as dander, spores, etc.  

Using vacuum cleaners with HEPA filters can go a long way to reduce the suffering of allergy sensitive people in your home. They remove spores, dust mites, and pet dander in the air and dirt they process.

Another way to help is to purchase a HEPA filtration system and place it in the room where people spend most of their time. 

CONCLUSION

All of the actions suggested are about how you clean and prepare your home environment. They can go a long way to relieving allergy symptoms, but additionally, changes in diet based on your particular allergy also are recommended. Using nontoxic detergent and cleaning solutions is also advisable.

Consider wearing a mask and gloves while working in the yard, and thoroughly wash clothing afterward.  Choosing places to visit with less vegetation such as waterfront rather than fields, forests or meadows while on vacation can also be the right choice for allergy sufferers.

Humidity Control

We offer the highest quality allergy relief products to help alleviate your suffering. Call us today for advice with your specific allergy situation.

HUMIDITY CONTROL

In order to minimize allergies and other issues that home occupants can suffer, using a humidifier and a dehumidifier can give you relief and help you avoid serious health problems. Basements are cooler than the rest of you home and therefore can be a place where humidity is high and creates a prime environment for mold growth. Humidifiers help your home avoid drying out your skin which can cause irritations and rashes. 

We carry many models of both humidifier and dehumidifier systems which help you take control over these situations and provide an allergy free and safe home for your family.

HEPA Air Purifiers

We offer the highest quality allergy relief products to help alleviate your suffering. Call us today for advice with your specific allergy situation.

HEPA AIR PURIFIERS

HEPA is an acronym for high-efficiency particulate air. A HEPA filtration works by forcing air through an extremely fine mesh that traps allergenic particles such as dander, spores, etc.

If someone in your home struggles with allergies, then you should consider purchasing a HEPA Air filtration system from one of our manufacturers. These products can provide relief in the areas of your some where people spend their time such as in a living area or a bedroom.

The various models are capable of filtering dust and dust mite particles, pollen, mold spores, smoke and pet dander. Our products are up to 99.97% effective at removing these harmful particles from the air in your home.

Dust Mite Bedding

We offer the highest quality allergy relief products to help alleviate your suffering. Call us today for advice with your specific allergy situation.

DUST MITE PROOF BEDDING

We carry several sizes of mattress and pillow encasements that can help keep allergy sufferers in your home from being exposed to dust mites and the allergies they emit. Using these encasements along with weekly washing your bedding in hot water and drying them with hot air will go a long way to eliminating this allergy problem in your home.

Dust mite feces contain a highly toxic allergen, so wherever they live is likely to be an irritant to those who are allergic to this allergen. Pillow and mattress encasements are manufactured from an ultra-thin weave material that was long used in the manufacture of typewriter ribbons. Because this material has a weave that is impermeable to dust mites,  and is also soft, this material is a perfect solution for keeping dust mites away from mattresses and pillows. 

Hypoallergenic Bedding

We offer the highest quality allergy relief products to help alleviate your suffering. Call us today for advice with your specific allergy situation.

HYPOALLERGENIC BEDDING

Hypoallergenic sheets and comforters are manufactured using materials that keep your bedding from becoming a home for dust mites and reduce the presence of mold and other allergenic materials. Sheets and comforters cannot of course be encased, and therefore can become a haven for dust mites and allergens in your bedding. Hypoallergenic sheets and comforters are also dye-free and chemical-free to further reduce the amount of irritant chemical compounds from the bedding. 

The best materials that are found in hypoallergenic sheets and comforters include bamboo, silk, hypodown, natural cotton. Also materials that thermos regulate are best because they help avoid the presence of moisture in the bedding due to sweat or condensation, in addition to the obvious benefits of comfort while sleeping.

LIVING WITH ALLERGIES

Allergies affect more than 50 million people in the United States, causing a constant sniffle or sneeze when face to face with the allergen (or allergens) that set them off. For some, allergies are seasonal and mild, requiring nothing more than getting extra tissue or taking a decongestant occasionally. For many, the allergy is caused by their home environment. Your home is your castle, except when you’re allergic to it. A recent nationwide survey found that over half of all Americans test positive for at least some allergens, and many of these are indoor allergies such as dust, mold, and pet dander.

So how can you allergy-proof your home to make it a refuge, not a source of sneezes? The single most important thing you can do for dust mite allergies is to put hypoallergenic casings on your beds, mattresses, box springs, and especially the pillows.

You can also reduce the presence of dust mites in your beds by using only washable bedding.  Many people may pile their beds with fancy quilts, throw pillows, and wool blankets that aren’t washed regularly.

This applies to stuffed animals in children’s bedrooms as well. Instead of piling stacks and stacks of cuddly toys on the bed, limit the furry friends to one or two favorites that are washable. (Take a look at the label — many stuffed animals are marked “surface clean only.”)  Your child’s linens and stuffed animals should be washed in hot water at least once a week.

Clean carpets regularly with a quality vacuum cleaner and clean the vacuum often. The bedroom is especially a good place for a HEPA air filter to clean bedroom air.

HARDWOOD FLOOR VACUUMS

Hardwood floors have special requirements to consider when choosing a vacuum. Many hardwood floors are made of woods that can be damaged or scratched by using the wrong type of vacuum head or with wheels and other parts that are too small or hard to keep from creating scratches or gouges while using the vacuum. The following are some features to look for in choosing a vacuum for hardwood floors:

SUCTION POWER

For hardwood floors, suction power is less of a priority depending on the surface characteristics of your floor. If your floor is smooth, then less suction is needed. If your hardwood has lots of irregular surfaces like grooves and bumps, then you will need more suction to keep these surfaces clean.  
WHEELS

Softer materials or padding on wheels is something that will be helpful in avoiding scratches while pulling or pushing the vacuum across the floor. Whether a canister or an upright, look for larger wheels with softer tread materials. Also pay attention to the materials on the underside and sides of the vacuum and look for softer pads that will help avoid creating scratches. Generally speaking, canister models will tend to have larger and softer wheels, where uprights tend to have smaller and harder wheels. Models do vary and there are exceptions, so take a look and decide whether this is a concern before you buy.
LONG AND FLEXIBLE HOSE

Whichever type of vacuum you choose, you will want a long hose for reaching all the places you will want to clean with your vacuum. This is especially true when cleaning larger floor areas with a canister vacuum where you will need to move your vacuum a lot when restricted by a shorter hose.
ATTACHMENTS

For hardwood floors you will want a good variety of attachments to deal with the varying conditions around your floor. Keep in mind you will also want to use you vacuum on furniture and not just your floor.
LIGHTWEIGHT

You will want a reasonably lightweight vacuum if this will be the primary vacuum cleaner for your home. This is especially true if you are also cleaning multiple floors with stairs. A lighter weight vacuum will also tend to scratch the floor and moldings less as you use it.
