Installing a central vacuum system in your home can reduce allergy symptoms from dust by up to 61% compared to a typical upright or canister vacuum.

That’s because a central vacuum exhausts the dust outside your home, rather than recirculating it back into the air, and has up to five times the cleaning power of a typical upright vacuum.

Nobody likes housework, but you may not really be allergic to it, just the dust and allergens that vacuuming stirs up when using an upright or canister vacuum.

A central vacuum can solve that problem. It doesn’t recirculate particles back into the air, because it is exhausted outside and has up to five times more cleaning power that a typical upright vacuum.

In fact central vacuums can reduce allergy symptoms from dust inside the home by up to 61% vs. a typical upright or canister vacuum.
