Vacuum Cleaners and Indoor Air Pollution
Major vacuum manufacturers claim their filters are better than others but they have one thing in common over a central vacuum.
It doesn't matter how good their filter is. Cylinder and uprights ALL omit dust back into the room. It's a fact.
Ask yourself? Is your vacuum cleaner really eliminating dirt and dust in your home, or is it simply “recycling” the debris back into the air?
Suspended particles linger in the air for as long as an hour after using uprights or canister vacuums and be inhaled by everyone who is in the room.
Can you imagine the effects on people with asthma or allergies?
Carpets can become a collector of airborne pollutants, as well as substances that may be tracked or spilled. Studies have found biological pollutants
such as bacteria, mites, fungi, and carcinogens such as lead and even chlordane in carpets.
Which Vacuum Cleaner Should You Use?
Allergists recommend two options: a HEPA filtered vacuum cleaner, which traps particles as small as
.3 microns, or a central vacuum system that vents to the outdoors and also has HEPA filters.
The draw backs with HEPA filtered upright vacuum cleaners are the initial expense.
They also emit the smell back into the room where as a central vacuum system exhausts outside.
Strathvac central vacuums UK offer models that vent to the outdoors and require no bags,
eliminating the recirculation of dust and the expense of costly replacement filters.
The Effects of Indoor Pollution
For millions of people in the UK suffering from hay fever, sneezing, wheezing and watery eyes are a way of life. But they don’t have to be. Most
people can enjoy normal, active lives through a combination of medical treatment, avoiding allergy triggers by preventing them from entering the
home, and removing allergens that do get in. Doctors at the Division of Allergy and Immunology at the University of California at Davis, one of the
world’s leading allergy research institutions, recommend frequent deep cleaning of the home, including vacuuming at least twice a week.
According to a recent UC-Davis clinical study, using a built-in central vacuum system offers the only means to remove 100% of household dust,
dust mites, pollen and pet dander, the leading triggers of allergic rhinitis.
Dust Mites, Evil Invaders in Your Home
Dust mites are tiny bugs that live in your house. They measure about 1/100th
of an inch in length, smaller than the period at the end of this sentence.
They are a major cause of allergies and asthma. When some children are exposed to dust
mites, they get asthma. If children already have asthma, dust mites make your child
wheeze more and use more asthma medicine. So, cutting down the number of dust mites in the home is an important step.
Central vacuum systems vs. Portable Vacuums
As the technology of portable vacuums has evolved, they have in turn become more expensive. The difference in price between central vacuum
systems and portable vacuums has lessened, central vacuums have become a more practical and cost-effective solution to cleaning your home.
There are several benefits to central vacuum systems. Portable vacuums have also not changed as they still re-circulate dust back into the room:
Healthier Air - Central vacuum systems eliminate the re-circulation of dirty air inside your living area because the dust and debris is carried through
the walls to an out-of-the-way receptacle.
Power - Central vacuums have three to five times more power than traditional vacuums. Because the power unit is not meant to be portable, its
bigger so can contain a more powerful motor than traditional vacuums.
Convenience - Central vacuums eliminate the need to carry a heavy unit from room to room or up and down the stairs. There are no cords to trip
over, and your power brush can be inserted right into wall inlet locations that you choose, instead of into pre-determined electrical outlets.
Home Value - Investing in any permanent appliance in your home should help increase the value when you decide to sell. Central vacuums can be
installed in existing homes, or in homes that are under construction.
Noise - Generally, central vacuum systems are quieter than traditional vacuums. BUT the power unit is located elsewhere (garage, basement, etc.),
so the noise will be virtually non-existing.
