How a Beam Central Vacuum System Works Back to Top

A Beam Central Vacuum System uses tubing installed in the walls of your home to carry dirt, dust and allergens away from living areas to a collection canister in the garage or basement.  To activate the system, simply plug in the lightweight 30' hose into the nearest Beam wall inlet.  (The average home has three inlets.)  Then attach your choice of cleaning tools and you're ready to go.  The flexible 30' hose lets you move from room to room for fast, easy whole-house cleaning convenience.  It's quiet, too, because the power unit is in the garage.

Clinical Research Proves...
a Beam® Central Vacuum System provides relief for allergy sufferers!
Back to Top

Research has revealed a new remedy for allergy sufferers that is not a drug: a Beam Central Vacuum System.  Clinical research at the University of California at Davis has shown that a Beam system provides measurable relief for allergy sufferers.

The Research

Indoor air pollution is one of the most common problems addressed by allergists and is troublesome for their patients.  Central vacuum systems often are recommended for removing pollutants.  Researchers at the University of California at Davis set out to determine whether a central vacuum system can relieve allergy symptoms.

The Findings

Unlike conventional vacuums that can recirculate dust, a Beam system removes 100% of contacted dust, mites, pollen, animal dander and other allergens, and is superior to a conventional vacuum in providing relief from allergy symptoms.

Study results were published in an article entitled "The Influence of a Central Vacuum System on Quality of Life in Patients with House Dust-Associated Allergic Rhinitis", which appeared in the Journal of Investigational Allergology and Clinical Immunology*.  The study was conducted under the auspices of Stanley M. Naguwa, M.D., and M. Eric Gershwin, M.D., both of the Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Clinical Immunology, University of California at Davis School of Medicine, Davis, CA, USA.

UC-Davis clinical research proves a Beam system reduces allergy symptoms...

Nasal  47% Non-Nasal  48% Eye  61% Sleep  44%
Nasal Symptoms: Patients who used central vacuum systems rated the severity of stuffy / blocked nose, runny nose, sneezing and postnasal drip 47 percent less than the baseline and 49 percent less than when they used a traditional vacuum.
Non-Nasal / Eye Symptoms: Patients who used central vacuum systems rated the severity of fatigue, thirst, reduced productivity, tiredness, p0oor concentration, headache or feelings of being worn out 48 percent less then the baseline and 46 percent less than when they used a traditional vacuum.
Eye Symptoms: Patients who used central vacuum systems rated the severity of itchy, watery, sore and swollen eyes 61 percent less than the baseline and 60 percent less than when they used a traditional vacuum.
Sleep Symptoms: Patients who used central vacuum systems rated the severity of sleep symptoms including difficulty getting to sleep, waking up at night and lack of a good night's sleep 44 percent less than the baseline and 49 percent less than when they used a traditional vacuum.

 

Testimonials Back to Top
What asthma and allergy sufferers are saying about Beam®:

"My daughter breathes easier..."

"One of my daughters has very severe allergies and we found that she didn't have a problem here (in our new home).  I attribute that to the Beam system, because there was deep cleaning of our carpet on a regular basis and no build-up.  So essentially she was a lot better and did not have the nasal congestion typical of allergic rhinitis."

Indoor Air Quality Facts... Back to Top
The worst thing for 50 million American allergy and asthma sufferers may be the air inside their own homes.

Most people know air pollution can damage their health, but don't know indoor air quality can have significant effects.

 

Cleaning Tips Back to Top
Using your Beam® Central Vacuum System to improve indoor air quality.

Traditional dusting:  Ineffective and harmful.

Dusting your home the old fashioned way with rags and scented sprays is ineffective and can be harmful.  That's because dust is recirculated, and chemicals are introduced into the living environment which can be extremely hazardous to allergy and asthma sufferers.  Beam Central Vacuum System dusting attachments allow you to put more power into dusting.  A Beam system removes 100% of contacted dust, mites, dander, pollen and other allergens and carries them away from the living environment to a canister usually located in the garage or basement.  Regular deep cleaning with a Beam system means you'll breathe easier and dust less often.
Carpet and upholstery: Can you live with it?
Some allergy and asthma sufferers can tolerate carpet, draperies, blinds and upholstery, others cannot.  Whether you should remove these items from your home should be determined by your physician.  Only 20% of the patients who are advised to remove their carpet actually do.  With a Beam, these changes may not be necessary.  Consult your physician.
Refrigerators: Not cool for allergy sufferers.
A refrigerator acts like a powerful magnet attracting dust and allergens, which become trapped beneath and behind the unit.  When the motor cycles on and off, the dirt becomes airborne creating a key source of irritation for allergy and asthma sufferers.  Until now, removing dust has been difficult because the refrigerator had to be moved.  Now, with the Beam WonderWand® Floor Hugger, it is easy to clean beneath and behind refrigerators and other hard-to-move appliances and furniture.  This narrow attachment slips beneath and behind the unit to remove trapped dust, dirt and allergens quickly and easily.
Computer keyboards: Havens for food, dust, dirt.
Home computers can adversely affect allergy and asthma sufferers.  Keyboards capture and hold germs, bits of food, dust and other contaminants that can spread disease among family members.  The Beam Mini-vac Attachment Set makes it easy to clean computer keyboards, vents, auto air vents and other small, inaccessible areas.
Pets can be hazardous, too.
Dirt, dander and animal hair can be key sources of irritation for allergy and asthma sufferers. Many physicians recommend removing pets from the home, however only a small percentage of those advised to get rid of their pets actually do. If your physician has determined that you can tolerate pets, a Beam Central Vacuum System can help improve your indoor environment. Up to five times more powerful than upright vacuums, a Beam system completely removes contacted dirt, dust and allergens from living areas. Beam Pet Grooming tools remove pet hair and dander as you groom/comb small or large pets. Before you install a Beam system, get your physician's recommendation.
Clean everything from floor to ceiling fan...easily.
Beam Central Vacuum Systems offer attachments and accessories to help you clean a variety of floor surfaces and just about everything above the floor. Whole-house cleaning is easy. With a Beam system, you can clean carpets, stairs, hardwood floors, walls and tile. You can clean ceilings, ceiling fans, moldings, upholstery, draperies, your garage and cars, even comb and groom your pets!
