Dust is everywhere. House dust is even present in clean homes. The average U.S. home collects 40 pounds of dust each year. That's equivalent to 25-35 vacuum cleaner bags a year. If you haven't removed that much dust from your home, then it's still there!

Creating a clean and healthy home environment for your family is important. According to the U.S. EPA, indoor air pollution is America's most serious environmental health problem.

The American College of Allergists also reports that 50% of all illnesses are caused by, or aggravated by, polluted indoor air. The problem is that indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air*. Several reasons for this increase include today's more tightly sealed housing construction, synthetic building materials and furnishings, and chemically formulated household products. No wonder indoor air quality is one of the top priorities for today's homebuyers!

With up to five times the suction and power of portables, central vacuum systems capture 100% of all vacuumed dirt, dust, odors and allergens. After vacuuming with most portable vacuums, it's typical to smell odors and see dust particles reflected in the sunlight. Central vacuum systems eliminate these odors and dust particles that traditional vacuums leave behind giving you a cleaner home with cleaner air.
