Name that Chihuahua! A contest with an “Out of This World” prize!

We at GoVacuum are proud to announce that we have added a beautiful new addition to our family, an adorable female Chihuahua puppy.

We are spellbound by her cuteness. The chewing of clothes, not yet being potty trained (but we’re working on it), and rambunctious ways all get overlooked, because who can get mad at something so cute?

Reminds me of Puss in Boots, no matter what mischievous events he finds himself in, he just pushes back those ears, widens those eyes, and the people that were chasing him just turn to putty in his paws.

The biggest issue we are having and is why we are turning to our customers, Facebook fans, and twitter followers – is choosing a name for her. Even the brightest of minds at GoVacuum (which might not be saying much) cannot find a name that seems to fit.

So let’s have a contest!

We are asking the collective here to help choose a name and we have come up with an award that is truly “out of this world.”

Now I know you’re asking yourself, “How did GoVacuum get a hold of an alien spacecraft?” Well, to that I say none of your business; but we are offering up a brand new Apple iPad Mini with a case that is covered in Meteor dust!!!!!

That’s right a Meteor that flew through space and happened to hit our planet, is now going to be on your Apple iPad.

Bet that Meteor didn’t see that coming?!?

The contest is being held from January 7, 2013 until April 1, 2013 and anyone can go online to GoVacuum.com’s homepage to enter the contest, choose a great name for their brand new addition to the family, and potentially win this “out of this world” prize.

Recycling Event and Beyond

GoVacuum.com and Forever Green Recycling just held their first ever “Recycle and Save Event” this past Saturday, October 28th. The response from the community was overwhelming! With such a positive turnout, I’m sure this event will become an annual thing.

(might be a slight exaggeration of turnout for our recycling event)

It doesn’t stop at just one event. The fusion of teamwork from GoVacuum.com and Forever Green Recycling will be offering recycling services daily.

Just like the slogan, “only you can prevent forest fires,” well only YOU can prevent needless landfill consumption of broken, no longer wanted or needed vacuum cleaners.

The buzz of our recycling effort is gaining momentum within the online community as well. With Recyclescene.com, Earthtechling.com, and Earth911.com leading the charge in getting the message out and informing people that there are positive, worthwhile alternatives for the disposal of vacuum cleaners.

So if you are local within the DC, Maryland, Northern Virginia area – please feel free to drop by our Vacuums Unlimited (GoVacuum) headquarters which is located at 14500 Lee Road Chantilly, VA 20151.

If you are not local but still want to take advantage of this wonderful program, please visit Vac-Recycle.com. Upon visiting the site, we will walk you through step by step from what your vacuum is worth to having a tree being planted in an endangered rain forest in your honor and everything in between.

Your recycling efforts do not have to stop at just vacuums. Forever Green Recycling specializes in the recycling of unwanted or no longer needed electronics. Whether you are bogged down with old gyroscopes, silicon wafers, copper anodes, and oscilloscopes or more common items like radar and sonar equipment – Forever Green Recycling has your recycling needs covered.

For a complete list of electronics Forever Green Recycling accepts, click here.

Please remember that a little effort can make a huge impact. Use these avenues to make a difference now and many years into the future.

COPD. Having a IQ is Power.

There are many ailments and major health concerns that people are aware of, but there is one life-threatening disease that does not make the headlines: COPD.  COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and it’s the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States.

Chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and sometimes asthma are a group of diseases that cause breathing related problems and airflow blockages that make up COPD, or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

What causes COPD?

There are a few variables that studies have shown to play a huge role in people developing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or already have the condition but are making it worse.

Exposure to air pollutants in the workplace or home, respiratory infections and asthma, all play their role in developing and progressing COPD but the key factor in the United States is tobacco use.  In a growing amount of cases, indoor air quality can possibly play an even larger role in the development or progression of this dangerous disease.

One demographic affected most by the pollutants within the home and / or buildings are the elderly.  Elderly spend roughly 90% of their time indoors and can become susceptible to environmental hazards such as, tobacco smoke, mold, dust, pollen, animal dander, dust mites, and even cockroaches.  Other sources include oil, gas, kerosene, coal, and certain household cleaning products which contain irritating odors.

We at GoVacuum wanted to shed light on this growing concern but also offer a valuable, high powered weapon to combat COPD within the home and / or building.

There is one company that not only specializes in the manufacturing and engineering of high quality, innovative air purifying perfection, but is also recommend by the American Lung Association for COPD – and that is IQ Air.

IQ Air produces exceptional air purifiers that use Hyper HEPA technology in a sealed system which captures 99.97% of all particles, as small as 0.003 microns.  This micron measurement represents the smallest particles that exist and include viruses, dust mites, pet dander, air pollution, and even cigarette smoke.  IQ Air uses nanofiber technology which stops particles 100 times smaller than what other air purifiers claim.

Using IQ Air machines will greatly reduce the ultra fine particles associated with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.  Unfortunately there are many air purifiers on the market that claim to do the same but are actually ineffective or even worse, dangerous.

Other air purifiers offer inferior filtration designs, that can possibly produce ozone or contain ionizers.  Ozone and Ionizers are significantly dangerous because the can exacerbate COPD and other respiratory conditions.

November is the American Lung Association’s COPD and Lung Cancer Awareness Month and GoVacuum wanted to raise people’s ”IQ” about Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and provide the information needed to choose the right air purifying company to tackle this important and deadly issue.

Vacuum Reviews Milestone with a batting average of .986!!

Pete Rose (14,053) might have more at-bats than us for now but GoVacuum (10,064) is closing in.  As for batting average, move over Ty Cobb, your .366 batting average is impressive but GoVacuum is crushing the record with an amazing .986!!

 

 

Now obviously GoVacuum doesn’t play baseball, but we are putting up phenomenal numbers in customer reviews on the sales of vacuums, vacuum parts, and vacuum accessories on Ebay.com.  We currently have 10,064 reviews with a whopping 98.6% of those reviews being positive.

 

Now that’s impressive if I do say so myself.   Yes we might be pulling the ol’ Barry Horowitz (wrestler infamous for patting himself on the back), but there is nothing wrong with a little self gratification.

 

 

GoVacuum.com started selling a variety of vacuums, vacuum accessories, and vacuum parts on Ebay back on May 01, 2009. Since then, customers have been able to locate the correct items for their wants and needs and GoVacuum has been happy to oblige.

Here are just a few of those reviews:

“Fits and function fine. Best price anywhere. 5 Star seller!” – marysidneyjo

“my product was processed and shipped very quickly service was above and beyond” – digginirish

“Ordered late at night and received 3 days later. Super fast. Perfect. Thanks!” – millerpaulb

“Excellent Seller! Would buy again! A++++” – flatheadtradingcompany

“Great… Fast shipping. Would use seller again. Thanks!” – tpico8744

“GREAT EBAYER A+A+A+A+A+” – smomon

 

 

Expanding onto other marketplaces was a welcomed challenge that GoVacuum.com was more than willing to take on. We wanted to expand our opportunities to provide our amazing service and products to a wider array of customers. Marketplaces like Amazon, Ebay, New Egg, and Sears – certainly gives us the opportunity to reach consumers that might not have otherwise been privy to GoVacuum’s excellent service and prices.

 

Even though you can find GoVacuum.com on these Marketplaces, please feel free to come directly to our website. You will find our entire inventory, discover and enter various contests (priceless vacuum contest happening right now), and have the ability to directly contact our vacuum experts to obtain any information you may need to determine the correct vacuum, vacuum parts, and / or vacuum accessories.

iRobot. A do it yourself guide to doing……..nothing.

Have you ever stopped in the middle of vacuuming and wished you lived a 100 years from now so a robot could do the housework while you relaxed? 

Welcome to the future.

iRobot is a company on the cutting edge of robotic design. The company designs military and home robots. The home robots are a popular vacuum product line known as the Roomba vacuums.

Roomba are hands free robotic vacuums that will clean your carpeting as if you were vacuuming with a traditional upright or canister vacuum. With just a push of a button the robotic vacuum will clean the room designated and even return itself back to its very own docking station.

Now I know if you’re like me you are probably asking yourself, “So when is the mowing the lawn, doing laundry, washing dishes, taking care of crying baby, rub your wife’s feet – robot coming out?”

I’m still waiting!!!

 

Until then at least you have a fantastic solution for cleaning your carpets.

That’s not all!!

iRobot has expanded their inventory and horizons by acquiring Evolution Robotics, makers of the Mint floor cleaning robot. The Mint floor cleaning robot focuses on cleaning hard surface floors.

Talk about a robotic cleaning army.

If your home is a 50/50 split between hard surface floors and carpeting or just mostly carpet, you will certainly want to consider the newest of the iRobot vacuum line such as the Roomba 630. One push of the button and you can walk away. The Roomba 630 features a patented 3 stage cleaning system with spinning side brushes to clean around edges while efficiently vacuuming dirt, debris, and even the dreaded pet hair.

Or if you want a more regimented approach, the Roomba 650 is equipped with a scheduler. So you set the time of when you want the robotic maid to get to work.

Both the Roomba 630 and 650 can adapt to various obstacles in the home. These robotic vacuums can go under beds and furniture, maneuver around loose wires, avoid stairs, use an acoustic sensor to detect the dirtiest parts of the floor and make multiple passes over the same area to ensure efficiency.

Make sure to check these amazing robot vacuums out at GoVacuum.com. We offer the greatest assortment of iRobot machines at the best prices.

Buried Alive?!? An upright and canister vacuum tag team has a solution.

For consumers overcome with pet hair and / or tasmanian messes, one company has found a way for you to dig your way out.

 

GoVacuum.com has devised a plan to tackle the pet hair and kid’s messes without having to hire a commercial contracter from the HGTV!

 

 

Presenting the Miele S2181 Titan Canister Vacuum and the Miele S194 Quickstep Vacuum!!!!!!!!!!

This Heavyweight Tag Team, Miele S2181 Titan and S194 Quickstep, could really use the same motto as Brett Hart, famous pro wrestler, when he was in the infamous Hart Foundation.

This is the “best there is, best there was, and the best there ever will be!”

Now I know what you’re thinking, “wow Mike, do you hype much?”

Well yes, but only for the items I think deserve it, like cheese fries, homemade apple pies, sweet potato fries, and now this ultimate creation of vacuum awesomeness!

The Miele S2181 Titan Canister Vacuum features a 1200 watt motor, HEPA filtration, and a SEB217 power nozzle for all medium to low pile carpet vacuuming.

The S2181 is designed to be a lightweight, versatile powerhouse, so the consumer can obliterate pet hair and dander no matter what domesticated or wild (your choice, I do not judge) animals you might have living with you, especially with the bonus STB 101 Handheld turbo tool that we have included!

I know that info just blew your mind but you’re going to have to pull yourself together!!! THERE’S MORE!!!!!!

I know, if you’re like me, sometimes you just don’t feel like getting up off the couch to get that remote left by the TV.

Well that also applies to when the tasmanian devils (children) make a small mess and you just don’t feel like getting the main upright or canister vacuum out to clean it up.

First, the main upright or canister vacuum is all the way down in the other closet that you just don’t feel like walking to. Second, you then have to get everything out and attach the right attachments to clean up the said mess, which also depends on which type of floor the mess is on.

I’m just hypothetically talking about the mess and I am feeling the angst!

That leads me to the Miele S194 Quickstep.

The Miele S194 is a powerful, versatile broom vacuum that can perform like an upright vacuum, especially with the SEB 236 powernozzle that comes with it, which can also be disassembled into a handheld canister vacuum.

The S194 is slim and very lightweight. This makes it easy to inconspicuously keep just off to the side of the kitchen or kid’s playroom and grab at a moment’s notice.

 

Now don’t hurt yourself running to tell your friends and family about this amazing combination of tag team vacuuming excellence, combining the best of the upright and canister worlds!

 

 

Feel free to send all of your “thank you” emails to michaelodell@govacuum.com

Quality ZVac! No its not a German guy saying “the vac.”

GoVacuum.com is launching its own brand, ZVac!

These are not just your everyday vacuum bags and filters either!  GoVacuum has designed and engineered the ZVac products to be mostly biodegradable and recyclable, made with earth-friendly materials to have the least amount of negative impact on the environment.

ZVac Discount Vacuum Cleaner Filters

Now I know what you’re thinking,

“Is GoVacuum trying to single handedly stop global warming?”

That’s so kind of you by the way, but no.

We do want to do our part though to help reduce, not just other people’s carbon footprint with our Vac-Recycle.com program, but reduce our own footprint by creating our own brand of vacuum bags and filters.

We didn’t stop there!!

ZVac having a tree planted for every 500 filters and bags manufactured

For every 500 vacuum bags and filters manufactured, we had a tree planted in the endangered Atlantic Forest of Brazil, and will continue to do so.

[wait for applause to end]

I know this is impressive and most of you reading this are singing GoVacuum’s praises, but some might be saying, “biodegradable, earth-friendly, the quality must be crap.”

We assure you, far from it!  We painstakingly and rigorously ensured that each bag and filter is manufactured to the exact OEM specifications of quality, size, and installation.

HERE IS THE BEST PART OF ALL!!

The ZVac brand of high quality and earth friendly products are a fraction of OEM and other popular Generic Companies retail prices.

So let me break this down for you because I’m sure I’m reaching the 96 second (on average) attention span for blog reading, or in case you skipped to the end:

ZVac brand, high quality, perfect fitting, earth-friendly, bags and filters at cheaper prices than anyone else, period!

 

Have a question about ZVac filters? Email me at michaelodell@govacuum.com
