 "The Drainvac Hair Salon vacuum is without a doubt a must for any Hair Salon"

Drainvac hair salon central vacuums. The best of the best. This is without a doubt the very best salon central vacuum on the market and certainly very budget-friendly. Supercharged power. The more power the greater the suction. We dare anyone to compare the features of a Drainvac salon vacuum to any other vacuum on the market. Harness the power with not just one motor but two giant motors. Double the motors mean incredible suction, the more power the better the results.

Reasons Why Salon Central Vacuums are Awesome!

Durability - Europe's finest quality motors made especially for the ultimate salon vacuum. learn more... precision crafted. All metal motors.

Quiet operation. - Yes. We consider it super quiet. It's all about quiet, smooth operation especially when you're conducting business. 15-25% quieter than the closest competitor. Unlike others which you have to wait until everyone is out of the salon or can only be used after hours because they're so loud. Drainvac has designed this vacuum with noise suppression technology, another industry first.

Active charcoal filtration. No other salon vacuum has this feature. We sell the majority of salon vacuums on the market today. If the vacuum does not have this feature your vacuum can end up smelling atrocious in only about 2 weeks.

Rustproof. Unlike metal central vacuum units, which are rust-resistant - this unit will not rust, pit, corrode, warp, etc. Yes, it comes with a true lifetime housing warranty. We are so sure that if it were to be found to have a manufacturing defect, we will replace the housing and honor the warranty for a lifetime... forever. Made of strong ABS resin approx. 6mm thick, 50% thicker than their competition

Even if some vacuums say they won't rust (they usually do) remember they will claim your warranty is void by saying there's moisture in the vacuum, of course, because of hair that's cut that is wet.

Extra-large dirt capacity - 10-15 gallons plus. Making it easier to clean. More hygienic, less maintenance. Another first in the industry by Drainvac. Environmentally friendly. This machine is designed with going green in mind, using less energy which will save you money on electric bills and is better for the environment as well as landfills. All in all, it’s much more efficient and eco-friendly.

Commercial quality. - Simply put, it has to say it or it's not really commercial. Built to last. Most hair salon vacuums could call themselves a salon vacuum or call themselves commercial but it literally has to have the word on the vacuum to really be commercial, don't be fooled by competitors. There are people in the industry that will take an ordinary home vacuum and call it a salon vacuum. This happens quite often. If you're not sure about other salon vacuums to call us, we’ll tell you the truth. There is not a vacuum on the market that we don’t know about, even fake private-labeled vacuums. Hair Salon Central Vacuum

Silverclear – kills bacteria in-salon vacuums odors and microscopic organisms. Another first in the industry by Drainvac. Every salon vacuum should have Silverclear in it. Total transparent dirt canister. It simply shows you how much hair, dirt, and sand is in the vacuum. Again another first from Drainvac. A commercial meter maintenance gauge will actually let you know when it’s time to maintain the vacuum. Another technological breakthrough thanks to Drainvac. Easy maintenance top-fill, clog-resistant intake provides no loss of suction when the bag is close to full. This will allow a cooler running motor.

Simply put, as the old adage goes, you get what you pay for. You can probably find a cheaper vacuum if you look hard enough, but you’ll compromise quality for the price. You may be asking for trouble in the long run. Buying the wrong salon vacuum will probably end up with you purchasing 2 or 3 in a couple of years. In conclusion, when shopping for a salon central vacuum there may be false claims that businesses try to sell a home type vacuum as a salon central vacuum, don’t get fooled. The word commercial has to be in the vacuum. If you were to purchase a home-type vacuum it clearly will explain in the instructions/guarantee that if you use it commercially the warranty will be null and void. Here’s a great example of the right tools for the right job.

Would you use an ordinary hairdryer or a professional one? Homestyle scissors to cut someone's head or professional salon scissors like---you get the idea. Simply put, don’t compromise a bargain for quality as you wouldn’t compromise the tools of your craft.

The Owners' Point of View

The original salon vac is our choice for being the best salon vac on the market. We factor variables very carefully and we’re extremely strict about function, quality, reparability, power, suction, quietness, motor design, anti-clog design, craftsmanship, ease of use, but most of all durability. We take durability very seriously. Customer satisfaction is number one with us. This vacuum comes with a 100% unsurpassed money-back guarantee if not satisfied. We cannot offer that with any other central vac, they don’t have that type of warranty. I'm the owner of Thinkvacuums but if I did have my own hair salon, I would definitely have the world-famous Drainvac salon vacuum. Make your salon stand out amongst the competition and make it easier for your workers. We have over 50 years of experience in the vacuum industry. We've never seen a vacuum come down the tunnel-like this vacuum.

Salon Owners Review the Drainvac Ultimate Salon Vacuum

What makes the Drainvac ultimate salon vacuum the best?
The most technologically advanced design for hair salons on the market today.

"Dear ThinkVacuums,

I'm writing you because my installer/handyman just finished installing the Salon vac and a bunch of those Vacpans. I got the 240v version because I own a pretty busy salon. I never knew before this that there was a vacuum specifically made for my line of business. What a cool concept! We've had vacuums before in the previous location of my shop, but they clogged often because of the amount of hair and stuff that gets vacuumed. I went to a local vacuum shop and they told me the damn thing actually burned out! We've got 12 stations, so that's a lot of hair! This thing works like a dream, my staff has all told me what a convenient thing those Vacpans are. They all have a broom near them so they just have to sweep it in and it's all gone!

I spoke with a woman named Abby via email to get some more details on the salonvac before I purchased this, after all it's not exactly a cheap item; I wanted all the information I could get! After emails back and forth I was solidly convinced this was the right decision, and I haven't looked back since. It truly has made a huge difference in how clean my shop is, even some of our regular customers have noticed the floors being cleaner!

Thanks so much for the guidance and support I was given, it's greatly appreciated.

Yours truly, Brett S., NH

"Good morning Thinkvacuums,

My name is Pete, I wanted to drop you a line and say that I own a brand new hair and nail salon here in Arizona. We equipped it with your Drainvac Salon Vac and it's been 6 months. I'm sorry I didn't write you sooner like I promised, but I found some time to sit down and thank you and your technicians for helping me install this.

It's a wonderful system and it has vicious power. My hair stylists think the salon is so more sweeping into a pan to clean up hair! We just turn the Vacpan on and it sweeps everything away, we don't have to see it or deal with it. It's a godsend to us.

Now only if they invented a device that would hook up to my razor, that would be so ideal. Maybe I should invent it and become a millionaire...

Thanks, Pete M., Scottsdale, AZ"

Dear Thinkvacuums,

I own a hair salon on the Las Vegas strip. I found Drainvac's product on your internet site. I don't own a big salon, but I have 3 stations that are constantly surrounded by people's hair. I've owned hair salons all my life and what a cool invention this is that we came across. My hairdressers HATE cleaning up after a client, we did have a girl who was hired just to clean up and help out but unfortunately with this economy we had to let her go, but with this new central vacuum system we just turn on one of the Vacpans and sweep right into it and it's all gone.

We were a little scared being that the hair was usually wet, and we thought that the only drawback of this system would be that it would rust. That's not the case, fortunately. We've had it for 2 years now and it works like a champ, just like the first day we installed it. We clean out the vacuum once a week and just pop off the bag and throw it away. It's that easy. Love the suction.

Sincerely, Pat B., Las Vegas NV

"Dear Thinkvacuums,

I wanted to share my experience with owning 3 vacuums in the past that didn't give me good service. One was a Hayden bagless vacuum and the other 2 were Nutone. All 3 didn't last much more than 8 months, and all 3 of their motors burned out. I came to find out that these are "home" vacuums and not industrial strength. Stupid me, the old saying "penny wise, pound foolish" sure applies in my situation. It's like trying to cut hair with cheap scissors. This is my 3rd time ordering from you and I just wanted to thank you for the great service you provided, as well as your technical staff assisting us on our 2nd salon vac which was installed 2 months ago. Your serviceman Scott is great.

I'd recommend this product to anyone in the industry, I actually found your product through my pet grooming store. When I saw it working I had to have it. Again, I want to thank you and it was a pleasure doing business with you.

Thanks, John S., NV"

Dear Iris,

Thanks for the great recommendation on the Salonvac vacuum. I needed something for my store (I manage a Supercuts) that wouldn't clog and burn out like my last few vacuums but I never thought of a central vacuum before, the rest were just regular ones. Iris told me about this central vacuum system, that it was designed specifically for salons and such and that sold me. Had it installed in about a day or so and it's been running like a champ since it's excellent.

Thanks so much, Steven R., MA

"Dear Thinkvacuums,

We bought your salon vacuum a couple of months ago. Reading these other testimonials, I thought "how could a product be so good?". When I got it, I found out that it actually was that good. My girls tap the little toekick and then the suction comes on, I don't even have to sweep right up to it the suction is so strong it gets anything within a few inches of it. The unit is located in our kitchen area in the back of my store, and we can barely hear it when it's on.

Every hair salon should get this. What a great invention. I'll tell anybody how great it is. You guys were very helpful and you sell a great product. The power's amazing.

Thanks, Casper H., NYC
