THE QUALITY OF THE AIR INSIDE YOUR HOME COULD BE WORSE THAN YOU THINK.
We all want the air that we breathe, to be as fresh as possible!
With a rise in energy-efficient homes and buildings — and an increasing public awareness about the importance of indoor air quality — more and more people are starting to wonder whether stale air is just a minor annoyance or a legitimate cause for concern.
Fortunately, the accumulation of bad smells and humidity is not necessarily bad for you, especially when you are not consistently exposed to it. However, the lack of fresh air in a room means a build-up of harmful pollutants can occur. It is this build-up that should be cause for concern, as it indicates a poor indoor air quality situation.
If the outside weather allows, always vacuum clean with a window open.
The heavy-duty motors and fans in our Cleaning Systems shift a lot of air.
- the complete removal of the air and dirt being vacuumed from the room encourages fresh air to be drawn into and re-circulated, thus improving the air quality in the room.
- this is a design feature which sets Central Cleaning Systems apart from other forms of cleaners.
When you vacuum with a Portable Cleaner, the heavy dirt is collected in the bag and the exhaust air is released from the rear of the machine. In this exhaust, is a micro dirt/dust, which will pass straight through the cleaner's filter. This micro dust is so fine that even the best Hepa filter, will not be able to prevent it from being expelled in the exhaust air.
When using a Central Vacuum Cleaning System, you clean in just the same way, however, in this case, the dirt vacuumed and the exhaust of the machine, which carries the micro dust, is transported away from the living areas.
This air is removed through a ducting system from the area being cleaned. The dirt is dropped in the bucket of the power Unit, the exhaust is expelled from the power unit, usually in the garage. Ideally, this exhaust air should be vented directly outside.
Unlike conventional vacuums that can recirculate dust, a BEAM Central Vacuum System removes 100% of contacted dirt, dust mites, pollen, dander and other allergens and carries them away from living areas—to help improve indoor air quality. Research has proven that a BEAM system provides measurable relief for allergy sufferers—as much as 61%!*.
The polluted exhaust air, generated by the cleaner, is totally removed from the air that you breathe, in the living environment of the house.
A BEAM Central Vacuum System makes for a cleaner home and healthier living, even if you don't suffer from allergies.
The removal of stale and smelly air.
Rooms that have consistently stale air, the humidity and build-up of MVOCs (microbial volatile organic compounds) can lead to severe indoor air quality issues, including mold growth.
Modern, buildings are designed to prevent unwanted airflow in and out of a house, increasing your chances of encountering stale and stuffy air. Airtight windows and doors are great for the electricity bill, but they may take a toll on your indoor air quality, if you do not take measures to increase the ventilation in your home.
A Beam System, when in use, will assist in the ventilation of the room and will help to filter out stale dusty air. In doing so it will improve the air quality in the room.
This will help dilute any humidity, exhaled CO2 and MVOCs causing the room to feel smelly and stuffy.
