Central Vacuums

If you’re concerned about heavy lifting, allergies, or the effectiveness of your current vacuum, it’s time to take a closer look at central vacuums!

A special power unit is placed either within your home or outside, and tubing is installed right into the walls of your home. Dirt, dust and allergens are carried through the tubes to a large collection canister located in an out-of-the-way location, such as your garage or basement. Central vacuums are often recommended to our customers who suffer from allergies, as these vacuums can help reduce allergens more than any other type of vacuum!
