Building or Remodeling is the Right Time for Central Vacs
Convenience, Air Quality Enhanced During Home Construction, Improvements

Webster City, Iowa - May 23, 2006 - Building a new home or renovating a kitchen or bathroom offer perfect occasions to improve the indoor air quality of the entire home by installing a central vacuum system.

"The deep cleaning capability of a central vacuum system captures more dust, dirt and allergens and completely removes them from the living area, creating a healthier home," says Larry Hartley, marketing director for Beam Industries, the world's leading manufacturer of central vacuums.

Although 70 percent of central vacuum systems are purchased for new homes, approximately 800 independent Beam Central Vacuum System dealers throughout the U.S. are trained to install systems in virtually any existing home. Complete systems installed start at around $1,000. Hartley says installation often is easier during a renovation project such as a kitchen or bathroom makeover. Like many kitchen and bath upgrades, installation of a central vacuum system also increases the value of the home.

An added convenience for the quick clean -ups often -required in kitchens, bathrooms and mudrooms is the optional KickSweep™ automatic dustpan. Installed in the toe kick of cabinetry or at the base of a wall, the user simply sweeps dirt and dust to the KickSweep, presses the toe switch, turning on the central vacuum power unit. The dirt is whisked away quickly with no bending and no dirty dustpan. Because central vacuum systems blow no air into the rooms they are CentralCespecially convenient and effective on hard -surface floors usually found in kitchens and bathrooms.

In addition to convenience, use of a central vacuum system actually improves the air quality inside a home. A study of allergic rhinitis patients by the University of California -Davis School of Medicine, found their symptoms improved by 40 to 60 percent, when they cleaned with a Beam Central Vacuum System instead of a conventional vacuum.

Beam® Central Vacuum Systems are manufactured by Beam Industries, a division of Electrolux Home Care Products, Ltd., and are sold and installed by independent dealers in more than 45 countries around the world. For more information or to locate a dealer, visit www.beamvac.com.
