16 Dec How Central Vacuum Systems Are Protecting Your Family
While the recent focus on climate change has people worried about the pollution and quality of outdoor air, many overlook the dangers that indoor air quality can pose to an individual’s health. The inhalation of indoor pollutants can lead to serious respiratory issues that can have lasting impact.
Shockingly, the quality of indoor air is on average around two to five times, even up to 100 times in extreme cases, more polluted than the worst outside air. This is made even more dangerous in the case of children whose bodies and lungs are still in the developmental stage. Children are very susceptible to respiratory diseases such as asthma.
There are currently around 300 million people around the globe — children and adults alike — who suffer from asthma. This number is projected to grow by more than 100 million people by 2025. In serious cases, there are even an estimated 250,000 deaths that can be attributed to this disease every year.
In order to keep air quality at a safe level, it’s important to rid of as many present pollutants as possible. Because much of what pollutes indoor air is dust, hair, and even shed skin cells, vacuums can be a useful tool in simply sucking it all up.
Unfortunately, many portable vacuums are susceptible to clogs and breaks. Because they’re smaller they also don’t always have the sucking power to do a sufficient job of clearing the air. Central vacuum systems, on the other hand, use powerful yet quiet generators that are able to provide multiple rooms in a home with vacuum tubes that offer substantial power.
Besides just the quality of the vacuum cleaner, it’s not always easy to find time in the day to actually vacuum. And even spending upwards of $500 on a quality portable vacuum cleaner could still leave you dealing with the weight, noise, storage, inconvenience and costs that go along with it, as well as the prospect of replacement at some point. These are not exactly motivational for making the extra effort to vacuum.
Not only are central vacuum systems more reliable than portable models, the increase in their suction power can substantially reduce the time it takes to finish vacuuming while still providing better results. Not to mention their retractable hoses make storing a vacuum much simpler.
No one should have to feel unsafe in their own homes under the fear of pollutants or developing respiratory problems. Central vacuum systems may even protect your family’s health without them knowing it.
