Indoor air quality refers to how safe, clean and pure the air is in your home. Most people take their home’s air for granted and assume it is safe, clean, and breathable. The problem is indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air. Several reasons for this increase include today’s more tightly sealed housing construction, synthetic building materials,furnishings, and chemically formulated household products. Most people spend 90% of their time indoors. Poor indoor air quality can affect health, safety and comfort – especially in children and the elderly. VACUFLO eliminates 100% of vacuumed dirt, dust and allergens, creating a healthier home with cleaner indoor air.

Homebuyers want more from their new homes. They want more convenient features and reliable products that will enhance their new home’s value and create a healthier home environment. To help provide this and more, VACUFLO is proud to participate in the Environments for Living® program. This program establishes stringent requirement and performance criteria levels based on building science principles. The Diamond Level helps builders construct homes that are more durable, with superior water and energy efficiency and a higher level of personal comfort and indoor air quality. Central vacuum systems, like VACUFLO, are required in select homes as part of the Diamond Level. Both the Environments for Living® program and VACUFLO strive to create healthier homes, increase comfort and enhance a home’s resale value.
