Before there was online instant gratification, there was vacuuming. In twenty minutes a simple vacuum could transform a room. However, there’s no denying that vacuuming can be a bit of a pain. It’s still extremely noisy, inconvenient, and can be costly if and when you find yourself shopping for a new vacuum every few years.

Portable vacuums have a tendency to pick up smells and are usually very heavy. With that being considered, portable vacuums really make one wonder just how clean their carpet is really getting. DrainVac is the answer to all the complaints anyone has ever had about vacuuming. Take a look at what central vacuums, and especially DrainVac models, have to offer.

A Misconception De-mystified

First, let’s talk about what people get wrong about central vacuum systems. One of the most common misconceptions with central vacuum installation is that if a system is installed in an existing home, it will require major renovations along with tearing down walls.

This is simply not the case because only minimal modifications are needed. The only hole required is covered with an inlet backing plate because the pipes are fed through the attic, basement, or crawlspace and are out of everyone’s sight.

The power unit/motor is mounted in either the garage, basement, utility closet, or crawl space. Homeowners with essential woodworking skills and tools can install the complete system. All necessary parts can be ordered with the power unit purchase. If you prefer to hire a contractor to install your system, that’s not a problem either.

Reducing the Noise Level

Talking on the phone, sleeping, napping, or just trying to hear your own thoughts is about nearly impossible when someone is using a portable upright vacuum. However, with a central vacuum, everyone is always amazed at how quiet these systems are. The motor is the main source of noise, which is typically located in the garage or the basement. The only sound you hear is the sound of air going through the vacuum pipe and head. Use a central vacuum and enjoy the quiet. Those who vacuum your house will find the whole experience more pleasant.

Ease of Use

Cleaning Is Easier with a
Central Vacuum

Central vacuum systems eliminate that upper and lower back pain that’s commonly associated with using portable vacuuming systems. With a central unit, there are a wide number of accessories that allow anyone to clean pretty much anywhere. Even those places you might never think you would have been able to clean.

Now it’s possible to clean every nook and cranny in your room without having to make your neck, arms, or shoulders sore. It’s fast and easy to change tools and attachments and keep vacuuming. There is no other vacuuming system that will allow you to clean as efficiently or effectively as central vacuuming because so many tools and accessories are available.

“People who use central vacuuming systems often remark positively about how clean the air in their home is.”

Say Goodbye to Troublesome Cords and Accessories

Say bye-bye to long cords, extension cords, filter troubles, heavy vacuums, and recirculated dust particles. While most portable vacuums require replacing every few years, the only thing you need to concern yourself about with a central system is basic maintenance. These systems are never bulky, awkward, or off-balance and always ensure the cleanest homes ever imagined.

When cleaning, the hose is behind you and you won’t get tangled up in a cord. You won’t bump furniture, baseboards, or door frames with a heavy portable vacuum because you are in control of the wand and hose.

Cleaner Air and Fewer Allergies?

Best Central Vacuums for Allergies

Central Vacuums Are Great
for Allergy Sufferers

Central vacuums collect dirt, dust, and debris out of the home and send it directly into the main power unit where they are then exhausted outside. Portable vacuums recycle vacuumed allergens back into the air through their exhaust systems. People who use central vacuuming systems often remark positively about how clean the air in their home is. You never really know how dirty your home is until it’s finally really, really clean.

This is a fabulous improvement from those suffering from:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Headaches
  • Other Respiratory Conditions

Central vacuums clean carpets and furniture much better than portable vacuums and this is an advantage for families with pets.

Achieving Powerful Deep Cleaning

The motor in a central vacuuming system is nearly three times stronger than the average portable vacuum. Because they are stored in a stationary location, like the garage or basement, they stay much cooler. What does staying cool have to do with anything? Staying cool allows the motor to last far longer than the portable vacuum's motor. This allows the motor to do its job consistently, efficiently, and effectively.

It can provide a much stronger suction through the network of pipes and through the hose. Central vacuum units not only remove the surface dust and debris but also reduce the deep grit and particles that age and wear carpets down. You can achieve a deeper than normal clean by attaching an electric or air-driven powerhead to the hose. These cleaning marvels can be ordered from our inventory online and adapted to any brand of central vac you may now have.

Central Vacuums Add Value
to Your Home

Purchasing high-quality household appliances is a great way to add equity to your home. Installing a central vacuum is a smart choice, because over time these systems will save money and add value to the home. Typically, central vacuum owners can go about ten years before having to replace any major accessories or worry about repairs and generally last more than twenty years.

The traditional portable vacuum needs to be repaired or replaced every few years which is not cost-effective. DrainVac complete packages are an affordable and all-in-one central vacuum system that typically goes for many years with spending money on repairs and parts’ replacement. Our complete whole-house vacuum packages are available for any size homes because they are designed with your in mind.
