A central vacuum system is an effective machine that helps you keep your home clean and free it from common allergens such as dust, pollen, and pet dander. These machines are built to last a lifetime, especially if you maintain them over time. While some people take the "fix it when it's broken" approach, it is always good to stay ahead of the curve and take care of your central vacuum before it malfunctions or before it causes damage to your belongings. The positive aspect for central vacuum maintenance is that there are a few highly effective products you can purchase to not only extend your unit's life, but also protect your furniture. Let's take a look at these products and how they can help protect your investment.


Tornado Cloths

Tornado WipesWhile you may not have heard of this product before, it does a fantastic job at cleaning the insides of the central vacuum plumbing and hose. Conventionally, these places are very difficult to reach when they clog and they develop residue over time. This has an adverse effect on the central vacuum's performance, which will not only cause it to perform below par, but it may exert more pressure on the motor or other components. Therefore, tornado cloths are a simple but highly effective solution to clean the insides of the central vacuum plumbing and hose. The well-designed sheets remove residue from the system. Best of all, you don't have to hire any maintenance professional and spend loads of money getting your central vacuum system cleaned. This do-it-yourself solution will clean your vacuum system and reduce odors.


Vacu-Bumpers

Vacu-BumperCompatible with all vacuum heads, vacu-bumper's are a lifesaver when it comes to protecting your walls, furniture and vacuum head. Whether we're a little rushed and careless, we often hit the vacuum head against our furniture. This leaves ugly marks on the furniture which may eventually cost a lot to repair. With Vacu-Bumpers, you no longer have to worry about running the vacuum head into your precious furniture. With a durable outer layer of fabric and inner layer of special foam, Vacu-Bumpers will keep both your furniture and your vacuum head safe from scuff marks. This product is easy to install and is manufactured in the USA. There is plenty of Velcro provided to ensure it fits your central vacuum head perfectly.


Hose Sock

Central Vacuum Hose SockAnother helpful product to protect your baseboards, furniture, and flooring is the hose sock. Whether you have carpet or wood flooring, this product will protect your home from damage. The hose may create wear marks or scuff marks around your home. Rather than being reactive, you can be proactive and protect your carpet or wood floor by installing a hose sock on the central vacuum hose. This way, your hose is safe and so is your home. The hose sock comes with a zipper, so installing it takes only a matter of minutes. The soft material ensures protection when you're dragging the hose around your home. In fact, the hose glides around easier with a sock! If you have any questions about the above-mentioned products, feel free to reach out and contact us.
