Allergy Vacuum - Improved Indoor Air Quality For Your Family
Ordinary vacuums can recirculation dust and allergens in your home. A PurVac system removes 100% of contacted dirt, dust, dust mites, pollen, animal dander, and other allergens. It carries them out of living areas and deposits them in the collection receptacle on the power unit mounted in your garage, basement or utility room. A PurVac system can improve the air quality in your home, to make it cleaner and healthier for your family. And it's effective: central vacuums have been clinically proven to reduce allergy symptoms.
Are you suffering from Allergies, Sneezing, Wheezing, Bronchitis, Eye Irritation, Sinus Problems, Migraines, Asthma, Watery Eyes, Coughing, Dizziness, Shortness of Breath Problems? PurVac can help. PurVac central vacuums are environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
While participating in PurVac product planning session last month, I learned some astonishing facts. According to statistics published by the Environmental protection Agency, asthma impacts an estimated 6.3 million children here in the United States. If you are a parent or family member of a child who suffers from this chronic disease, I know you are much too familiar with nights of interrupted sleep, limitations on the child's activity, and the general disruption of routine household activities. Asthma has been documented by the Center for Disease Control as the leading cause of school absenteeism, accounting for 14 million missed days last year alone!
PurVac sleek, new modular design houses a more powerful yet efficient motor that lowers operating costs and reduces allergy-causing agents as well as noise. To protect you from dirt, dust, dust mites, pet dander, and other pollutants, PurVac utilizes two-stage air filtration within the power unit. This power unit is generally located away from living areas keeping them pollution free. Both the EPA and the National Lung Association call this a definite health benefit. Bottom access to an ergonomic bucket design makes it easier to remove collected home debris. Today's lifestyles create unique cleaning challenges.
Doctors identify vacuuming as an activity that can trigger allergies and asthma - especially with bagless or poorly-sealed machines that introduce allergens back into the air. The good news is there is an allergy-friendly vacuum that effectively cleans homes while protecting the air that families breathe. PurVac vacuum cleaners were proven to actually reduce the number of pollutants in ambient room air and have legendary durability with high-performance ratings. With a wide selection of accessories and powerheads, the PurVac easily cleans all carpet types, rugs, couches, throw rugs, hard-floor surfaces, upholstery, fireplace mantles, ceiling fans, blinds, draperies, light fixtures, lamp shades, car interiors, keyboards, hard to reach places, stairs, and much more!
HEPA filtration PurVac provides a cleaner, healthier and safer home since a central vacuum eliminates 100% of contacted particles vacuumed from your living environment. You and your family can breathe easier. The air you breathe...bacteria-laden dust and allergenic airborne particles are drastically reduced throughout your home.
PurVac - Environmentally Friendly - Going Green
Quiet - Noise Pollution
Quiet is good. Most people want to live in a quiet neighborhood, work in a quiet office, drive a quiet car...you to get the idea. The same goes for inside the home. The PurVac central vacuum, located in your basement or garage, has to be the quietest vacuum made today, literally. Typically 20% quiet than their closest competitor.
The EPA has declared that adverse health effects, including premature death, aggravated asthma, and chronic bronchitis, are associated with exposure to fine particles. Whiles individual particles are invisible to the naked eye, collectively they can appear as smog or dust clouds. Fine particles originate from a variety of sources: outdoors they are generated by diesel trucks, fuel combustion, and power plants. But fine particles can also pollute the air indoors through wood stoves, air fresheners, and even vacuum cleaners.
Scientific research conducted by the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute determined that vacuum cleaners generated fine particulate matter due to normal wear and tear of the vacuum motor. The Institute tested air exhausted from vacuum cleaners for fine particle content. Surprisingly, many vacuum cleaners actually pollute the air you breathe by exhausting million of these particles per minute.
Going Green Helps Not Only the Environment, but Pet Owners and Allergy Sufferers As Well.
In 2002, the Division of Allergy and Immunology at the University of California, Davis, conducted a clinical study that proved a link between central vacuum systems and allergy relief. The study found that patients experienced a 40% to 61% improvement in their symptoms when they switch from using a portable vacuum to a built-in central vacuum system to clean their homes.
One important note of caution, if your primary concern is removing dirt, dust, pet hair, allergens, etc.. then venting the central vacuum outdoors is an option, but certainly not the best idea for environmental reasons because it will suck out a lot of conditioned air from inside your home which will increase your utility bills. It's highly recommended in the central vacuum industry to use a vacuum that has a true finer filtration system such as the ActiVac II (come with the ultimate pet vacuum) that does not require the exhaust to be vented outside. It's more eco-friendly to have an airtight insulated home.
