DRY CARPET CLEANING
1) - More and more, we are aware of the environmental impact of the things that make our lives easier. Cars,
airplanes, factories and other pollution makers. Vacuum cleaners are no exception.
For years, we have been using poorly designed vacuum cleaners to help clean our homes, places of business and worship. Until
just recently, the best vacuum cleaners actually exhausted a large percentage of what they picked up back into the air. With
the use of air conditioning, we have "buttoned up" the air in our dwellings and actually made it worse every
time we re-spread the dust and allergens to add to what we introduce into the dwelling with our every day coming and going.
No longer is that necessary. Some portable
vacuum cleaners, and most central vacuum cleaners, actually remove the pollutants from the air we breathe. For
example, our line of Miele portable vacuum cleaners, with its class 12 H.E.P.A. filter, removes 100% of all
particles as small as .07 microns.* That's right---- all of the things that cause you and your family's allergies to
react, such as dust mites, dust mite feces, roach feces, mold spores, etc., can be removed from the air each time you use
your vacuum cleaner. They are captured in the filter and when the filter is replaced, they are gone. Not all H.E.P.A.
filters are the same. Most "cheap" vacuum cleaners use lower "class" filters that do not remove all
of the irritants. We also carry Healthy Home vacuum bags to fit many different
brands of vacuum cleaners.
Our Modern Day Central Vacuum Systems offer the same benefit. By placing the power suction unit in the garage
or basement, all of the particles picked up by the vacuum are transported out of the living space of the dwelling. Modern
Day central units filter the exhaust air so well that they do not have to be vented to the outside of the dwelling, but can
be vented outside if so desired. That's not so with most other brands. Most central vacuum power suction units
emit a lot of the dust and pollutants back into the air, and must be vented using exhaust pipes. Venting the unit cuts
down on the performance. Modern Day power units use Microgeometric "Hyperflow"** technology filter bags
that eliminate the need to vent the exhaust outside. Instead, you simply take the filter bag out of the power unit and
replace it with a new bag once or twice a year. That's it, you're done, and for about $4.00.
Both of these vacuum options are available at Concord Vacuum Center. Call or come
by and let us show you the demo of how these "Green Earth" products, and can make your life so much better.
