DIRT DEVIL® CENTRAL VACUUM SYSTEMS PROMOTE A DUST AND ALLERGEN -FREE HOME ENVIRONMENT

CEDIA Booth #209 - Homeowners concerned about the air quality circulating inside their home can rely on Dirt Devil central vacuum systems to enhance the cleanliness of not only their floors and upholstery, but also the air inside their homes.

CEDIA Booth #209 - September 3 - 7, 2003 - According to the E.P.A. indoor air quality is 3 -5 times worse than outdoor air quality. A contributing factor is the dust and dirt that portable vacuum cleaners remove from carpets, floors or upholstery that are made air born and can remain in the air for at least an hour after vacuuming.


Homeowners concerned about the air quality circulating inside their home can rely on central vacuum systems to enhance the cleanliness of not only their floors and upholstery, but also the air inside their homes, according to the experts at H -P Products, the premiere manufacturer of VACUFLO and Dirt Devil central vacuum systems.

"Traditional portable vacuum sweepers with bags and filters exhaust vacuumed dust and odors back into the home and become clogged with small dust particles, diminishing power the first time you vacuum," says Bud Kirkpatrick, industry expert and President of H -P Products.

"With Dirt Devil® Central Vacuum Systems, 100% of the dirt and dust vacuumed is removed from the living area and typical household allergy agents such as dust mites and small particles are captured in the dirt canister or exhausted to the exterior of the home."

The Dirt Devil® Platinum Force® Filtered Cyclonic Central Vacuum System ensures optimum cleaning performance by combining cyclonic filtration technology and a high -performance filter. This bagless central vacuum system offers convenient whole -house cleaning without re -circulation of dirt and dust back into the home. As a result the upholstery and carpets in the house are cleaned more thoroughly and the air remains fresh and germ -free.

96 -98% of the vacuumed dirt is deposited in the dirt canister and the remaining fine dust particles are captured in a filter cartridge before clean exhaust air is vented from the unit. Dirt Devil® provides a system for every size home and can easily be installed in new construction and existing homes.

In a study conducted at the University of California at Davis School of Medicine, 25 adult allergy sufferers with a history of hypersensitivity to house dust participated in a 3 -month study to determine if central vacuum systems would provide greater allergy relief than the standard upright vacuum cleaner. The study determined that the air quality and allergy relief was improved by over 50% with the use of a central vacuum system.
