Would not it be lovely to trawel from room to room without worries of whether your power cable for the vacuum cleaner will reach? How about if you do not have to lug around a heavy vacuum room to room? This can now be a reality with the creation of central vacuum cleaning systems. Let's take a little look at what this cleaning system is all about.

A central vacuum system will be based around a central power unit, which is often located in the basement. Connected to this power unit by 'tubes' are various inlet points. These are often located in incredibly convenient locations within your household.

The Wall Inlets are built to accept a cleaning brush, much the same way as a traditional vacuum cleaner. The amount of inlets that you have in your home are down to your own individual needs, although it is often suggested that you have one inlet for every 600 square feet of space in your house, or at least one per floor.
When you vacuum the dust will be directly sucked into the piping of the vacuum system. It will then work its way through to a 'storage' location for the dust. You will only need to empty this bag on average once every 3 months for an 'average sized' home.

When choosing a central vacuuming system, you will need to make a choice about what filtration system you will want to make use of. A filtered one will us a cloth, foam or paper to remove any debris, you will find that it needs to be cleaned every so often, however. A cyclonic system will separate impurities from the air by spinning around in a way that is not dissimilar to a 'tornado'. This dirt will be deposited in a canister which will need to be emptied every so often.

So what are the benefits of this modern system over a traditional one? Let's take a little look:

1. Central Vacuuming systems help eliminate dirty air going back into the living room, which can of course be unhealthy if you breathe it in. This is achieved by taking the dust out of the room and sending it to another room, it literally has no chance of 'escaping'

2. There is a lot more power with this kind of vacuum, up to 5x more in fact, which means it is going to provide a defect clean.

3. There is no need to carry a vacuum cleaner from room to room, which could end up being a lot of hassle.

4. The cost of running a central vacuum is actually much less than a portable cleaner, although from the face of it this does not look like the case. This is because these cleaners offer a much deeper clean, which helps extend the life of your carpets and drapes.
