How a Central Vac Can Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Why do you clean your home? Well, that’s an easy answer. To make it healthy, habitable, and comfortable. An important component of your household cleaning routine is likely vacuuming, which is supposed to do more than extract crumbs from the carpet; like remove dust, dirt, and other potentially harmful particles from the space and thus prevent them from contaminating the air you breathe there.

Unfortunately, traditional vacuums fall short of accomplishing this vital task, and can actually cause you to do more harm than good to the health of your household. This is why more and more homeowners are making the switch to the convenient, powerful, and health-supporting benefits of a central vacuum system.

We at MIProTechs are here to share with you some ways in which a central vac can help you improve your indoor air quality and make your home the place in which you feel the happiest, healthiest, and most comfortable that it should be.

Why Should You Care About Indoor Air Quality?

The average person spends about 90% of their time indoors, and 60% of that is at home. The unfortunate truth is that the air in your home can be up to 5 TIMES more polluted than the air outside with numerous harmful particles and toxins, which can lead to a plethora of health issues including heart and lung disease, respiratory and sinus infections, and even aggravate existing chronic conditions like allergies, asthma, and COPD.

Here’s how a central vac can help…

Increased Power

Central vacs offer significantly more powerful suction over traditional vacuums. In the case of carpeted areas and upholstered furniture, this ensures that all dirt, dust and other particles are effectively lifted up and out of even the thickest of fibers.

No Recirculation

Traditional vacuums actually recirculate more of the dust and dirt they’re supposed to be cleaning back into the air as they move around. Central vacs, on the other hand, are known to reduce airborne particles by a whopping 60% by completely removing them from the home and exhausting them outside. This not only results in a noticeably cleaner environment, but also ensures that harmful particles are wholly eliminated from the space.

Wider Range of Accessories

With a central vac, you have access to a wider range of cleaning accessories over a traditional vacuum including but not limited to wall brushes, pet hair brushes, dust brushes, and upholstery tools. This means that virtually no surface or area in your home is out of reach, and that harmful particles truly have nowhere to hide.

Healthy indoor air quality is essential to a happy and comfortable home. A central vac is not only a worthwhile investment in sheer convenience, but also in your long-term household health. Whether you’re building a new home or looking to retrofit and existing one, MIProTechs can walk you through all the ways a central vacuum system can make your life better.
