When we moved into this house – actually the night before we moved in – we had the basement wall-to-wall carpeting professionally shampooed.
Despite that, I've always felt like the floors in this house weren't as clean as I'd like. Don't get me wrong the laminate and tile weren't gross or anything. But as much as I love my small upright vacuum, I just never seemed to be able to really get the wall-to-wall carpeting in the basement clean.
Why We Installed a New Central Vacuum in Our House
Our house was built with a central vac system installed in 1999…five different families and almost twenty years ago! Who knows how much dirt and grunge that central vacuum had seen, or how well it was still filtering?
We bought the house knowing the central vac system was older and we were shown by our inspector that it did indeed function, but beyond a sad old hose, there were zero attachments here for it! Can you imagine me vacuuming a whole house with just a hose?! Because of this I obviously never even bothered to use it.
Hence the only somewhat vacuumed basement!
Why We Chose the Broan-NuTone PurePower Series
Broan-NuTone PurePower series central vacuums combine powerful suction, unmatched HEPA filtration, ULTRA SilentTM technology (hallelujah – the vac unit is in the garage, but that's right under our daughter's room!) and the ultimate flexibility; bag or bagless options in one model. Every single one of the following is why we chose the PurePower series for our house:
- Dust, pollen and other irritants can contribute to respiratory problems such as allergies and asthma. PurePower central vacuums with HEPA filtration capture 99.97% of all micro particles as small as 0.3 micron and remove them from your home by exhausting to the outside.
- Central vacuums are up to 5 times more powerful than portable vacuums. Powerful suction removes debris, hair and dust mites for deep cleaning of floors, carpets and upholstery. (If you need me, I'll be over here vacuuming the couches and mattresses.)
- Multi-direction vacuum connection for easy installation, even in small spaces.
- Large ergonomic latches on the debris pail make emptying your central vacuum easier. (I'm all for easy!)
Since my family is somewhat prone to allergies and we have pets, the fact that the central vacuum we just installed filters to the outside with a HEPA filter is a major reassurance to me. And the vacuum really is quiet.
And Dean was so excited to have such a powerful vacuum he vacuumed all over the house – including the carpeted basement stairs that were driving us nuts! #bonus
I'm incredibly thankful to have a central vac that cleans so well!
