If you have a central vacuum system in your home then you already know what a convenient, lightweight and powerful alternative it is to a portable vacuum cleaner. You also know that in addition to easy, efficient and powerful cleaning, a central vacuum system is much quieter than a traditional vacuum because the motor is usually located in a garage, basement, or a removed area. Did you know however, that in addition to the accessories that come with the original central vacuum system, there is a large selection of additional accessories and attachments available that can specifically target specific areas of your home?


In addition to its already highly effective cleaning power, a central vacuum system also has a wide range of attachments and accessories available that allow you to clean places that a traditional vacuum cannot reach. While most central vacuum systems come with a standard collection of accessories such as a crevice tool, a dusting brush, an upholstery tool, and basic floor tools, there are many more accessories and items that you can purchase to make your cleaning experience even more effective and efficient.

Many new accessories on the market today can be purchased either individually or as packages. There are many new items available that can be used in conjunction with your central vacuum system. Accessories include turbo-powered carpet brushes, crush proof hoses, pet brushes and pet vacs, hardwood floor brushes, tools for cleaning blinds, extra wands, lint brushes, hose hangers, crevice tools, soft dusting brushes, tool caddies and tool and accessory holders.

There are also extendable hoses that extend beyond the standard 12 feet when a longer reach is required. The hose has an inner hose sleeved inside the main hose that expands to a full 30 feet. Simply pushing a button on the handle retracts the extended hose. There seems to be a highly efficient cleaning tool available for every cleaning task that you have to perform in your home. The level of convenient cleaning options has risen to new heights over the past few years.

According to HomeTips, “Manufacturers offer a variety of improvements on the basic accessories—collection canisters with mold-killing coatings, canisters that can be used with or without vacuum bags, retractable hoses, and sock-like covers that prevent hoses from marring wood floors. Some also have digital controls that alert you to a full canister or required maintenance.” Another popular option in a central vacuum system is the floor sweep option. This ultra-convenient feature combines the common dustpan with a central vacuum. The result is a baseboard-mounted receptacle that, when opened, sucks in dust and debris as you sweep it in with a broom.
