Yes! Use the bare floor tools 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.
BEAM systems are practically maintenance free. No lubrication or cleaning is ever required. BEAM filters have an exclusive self-cleaning design from the makers of GORE-TEX® fabric, which is five times stronger than other leading filtration media. The filter shakes off dirt and protects the motor so a BEAM system works like new everytime. 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.
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.
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 Central Vacuum 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.
Most homes require only three inlets to reach every area with the hose and attachments. Each strategically located inlet lets you vacuum approximately 700 to 800 square feet. The power unit features an extra built-in inlet for easy cleaning of the area around the power unit.
A BEAM Central Vacuum System costs much less than you might expect. The average cost for a complete system, installed in new or existing homes, starts at around $1,000. And it can add to your home's resale value. Ask your Distributor for a free estimate on installing a Beam system in your home.
BEAM Cleaning Sets and 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.
Yes! A properly installed BEAM Central Vacuum System offers the same powerful cleaning performance at every inlet whatever the distance from the power unit and won't lose suction over time.
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. More information on Attachments and accessories are available here, or at your local BEAM Dealer.
That's easy. Just check our Find a Dealer section on this web site. You'll discover an authorized BEAM Distributor quickly, easily.
If a hose has a bad switch or a damaged handle, an authorized BEAM dealer can usually repair the hose, (if replacement parts are still available for that model.) However, a hose with a broken wire or a hose that is torn cannot be repaired to its optimum performance and it is best to replace the hose.
The brushroll should be replaced when the powerhead ceases to pick up small debris from the carpet i.e. loose thread or small pieces of paper. The belt should be replaced when the operator can feel that there is no forward pull left when the powerhead is on the carpet or operator can feel the brushroll stalls. It is best to have your authorized BEAM dealer replace the brushroll or the belt.
There are times when your central vacuum systems pipes may seem to emit an odor. This can happen due to slight moisture in your pipe, pet hair, etc. There is a product you can purchase to freshen your pipes called TORNADO wipes. These pre-moistened / scented towelettes can be sucked through your pipes from each inlet in your home and also through your automatic dustpans. The TORNADO wipes will remove minor clogs and odours.
TORNADO wipes can be purchased from your local authorized BEAM dealer.
You can follow these steps if you have problems starting your unit.
Note: Always start at your vacuum and trouble shoot back to the hose. Failure at any point directs you to where the problem most likely can be found.
Follow these instructions for clogged system.
