Q: How Does A Beam Central Vacuum System Work?
A: To create lightweight, powerful cleaning, better air quality and less noise, the Beam power unit is typically
located in the basement or garage, and is connected to convenient inlets throughout the home via vacuum tubing. Plug
the hose into an inlet and the system is turned on with a switch on the hose handle. Particles are completely removed
from living areas and collected in the power unit’s dirt receptacle.

Q: How Does A Beam System Improve Indoor Air Quality?
A: A Beam Central Vacuum System has been clinically proven by the University of California at Davis to reduce
allergy symptoms by as much as 61%. A Beam system is more effective at removing dirt and allergens because it has a
larger, more powerful motor than uprights – up to five times more powerful. Unlike conventional vacuums that can
recirculate dust, a Beam system removes 100% of contacted dirt, dust mites, pollen, dander and other allergens and
carries them from living areas to a canister usually located in the garage – to help improve indoor air quality.

Q: Is The Hose Easy To Use?
A: Beam hoses are extremely lightweight and designed for whole-house cleaning from floor to ceiling. Unlike
short, flimsy hoses found on portable vacuums, Beam crushproof hoses are created to withstand everyday kinks and
twists.

Q: Is The Suction Power Maintained Throughout The Home?
A: Yes! A properly installed Beam system offers the same powerful cleaning performance at every inlet whatever
the distance from the power unit.

Q: How Do I Maintain A Beam System?
A: Beam systems are practically maintenance free. No lubrication or cleaning is ever required. Beam’s filters
have an exclusive self-cleaning design, featuring new HEPA non-stick CleanStreamâ?¢ Filtration material, which is five
times stronger than other leading filtration media. Which shakes off dirt and protects the motor so a Beam system
works like new everytime.â?¢ Because the filter is permanent, there is never a need to replace dirty, messy
bags. Just empty the dirt receptacle two to three times per year.

Q: How Many Inlets Are Needed?
A: Most homes require only three inlets to reach every area with the hose and attachments. Each strategically
located inlet lets you vacuum approximately 700-800 square feet. The power unit features an extra built-in inlet for
easy cleaning of the area around the power unit.

Q: What Cleaning Attachments And Tools Are Available?
A: Beam offers a full complement of tools and attachments for virtually any cleaning need – from ceiling fan
cleaners to handheld power brushes to mini-vac tools for cleaning computer keyboards. There are even pet grooming
brushes that attach to your Beam hose.

Q: Can I Use The System To Clean Hardwood, Vinyl or Ceramic Tile Floors?
A: Yes! Use the bare floor tool or install one of our most popular options: the VacPan® automatic dustpan. It’s
ideal for removing debris from the kitchen, bath or mudroom. Simply sweep trash towards the automatic dustpan, touch
the toeswitch and use the power of your Beam to instantly remove it. No more dustpans or stooping over to pick up swept
debris.
