Treasure Troving For Lost Items With Your Vacuum

Do you know that feeling you get when you’ve lost an earring or your favorite piece in Monopoly?  Are you always losing because you can’t find that gosh darn car or the cannon?   I mean seriously, everyone knows those are the best pieces!  Well you can buy another Monopoly game and waste all those monopoly dollars, or you can pass go, collect $200 and try a nifty little method I like to call, “treasure troving,” also known as, “Putting a stocking on the end of a vacuum to find a small item under your dresser.”

You are never going to believe how simple it is.  All you need is a vacuum and a stocking or if you’re a dude who owns dress socks, those will work too.  Now if you’re a dude and you have stocking’s… more power to ya’.  Just take the end of your vacuum hose, place a stocking over it – creating a filter-like effect, and take your vacuum on a treasure trove hunt.  You’ll find all the stuff you never really noticed was lost but always gave you the feeling of, “dang something is missing in my life.”

Who needs a metal detector, I mean seriously?!?  Have you ever seen a robber out at the park trying to crack a safe?  There are way more valuable items just laying around lost in your bedroom.  There is no better feeling than pulling your wedding ring out of the kitchen sink or shutting up your stupid brother in law in a friendly game of monopoly, Boooyaw!  So give it a try and don’t forget to refer to GoVacuum.com for all of your vacuum needs.

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.

Wine Festival & Vacuum Recycling Event Near Washington DC ( District of Columbia )?

Washington DC area residents, what do you get when you cross my two favorite things, wine and vacuums? Besides me and a lonely Saturday night as a bachelor, you get a fun filled Saturday! What are you doing on the 27th of October? No plans? Why not start the day off by visiting us for our vacuum festival? Okay, vacuum festival is a bit of a stretch, let’s call it a vacuum recycling event!

So hop in your car with your old vacuum, broken or working, and leave Washington DC to head down route 50! After selling us your vacuum and/or buying one from us at the BIGGEST SALE we’ve ever had in 35 years, why not drive a few miles down the street and have fun at a wine festival? We’re just minutes from many Virginia wineries. Why am I trying to suggest heading to a winery afterwards? Well besides the fact I’ll probably end up there after our vacuum recycling event, I fear you won’t show up just for the vacuum recycling event, so I’m trying to entice you with wine.

I don’t even know that there’s a wine festival this weekend, but I do know Chrysalis Winery is just a few miles away and it’s always beautiful countryside scenery that makes for a great break from Washington DC’s political landscape. Oh, plus there’s also the National Air & Space Museum just down the street if you’re heading over with family! The point I’m trying to make is this… If you live in or near Washington DC, please attend our event! I’ll even have the gold and priceless vacuums on display so you can get a photo with each for FREE!

So my Washington DC and surrounding area residents (that includes you too Maryland), please note there is no trick to Vacuums Unlimited’s (AKA GoVacuum.com) biggest sale in 35 years. There is also most certainly a treat for customers and the environment this year with a recycling event just in time for Halloween. Vacuums Unlimited (of GoVacuum) and Forever Green Recycling are pairing up for a big recycling event festival in Virginia this October (just outside Washington, D.C.). This one-day only sale and recycling event will be Saturday, October 27th, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Is this a wine festival with music for Washington, DC area residents? Hardly! There will be no wine at this festival and it’s hardly a festival, it’s a recycling event! Don’t worry District of Columbia area residents, there will be music playing (just no bands). What gives then?

Well, Vacuums Unlimited will be having their biggest sale on vacuums, air purifiers, carpet cleaners and more! Open boxed vacuums, customer returns, re-boxed, refurbished, rebuilt, and more, during this event only are being liquidated! No rain checks will be dispersed for items on sale as the sale includes only items in stock.

Who knew that recycling could pay off? And could even take that old clunker of a vacuum out of the closet to free up some space? For this recycling event, Vacuums Unlimited will be offering store credits for vacuums in any condition, that old clunker that has not worked in years can earn a customer a neat $20 store credit. The vacuum in the back closet that still sometimes works but makes a whining sound could be worth up to $50. This store credit can also be used towards the machines on sale!

Just bring the vacuum down to the parking lot of their vacuum showroom and warehouse in Chantilly, VA 20151; located at 14500 Lee Road, Unit G (just 20 minutes from D.C & 45 minutes from Baltimore). After the vacuums have been purchased by Vacuums Unlimited, they will try to rebuild your vacuum and give it a new home to clean up. In the event they can’t repair the vacuum, they will strip the vacuum for reusable parts. The parts that cannot be retrieved for reuse will be recycled next door with Forever Green Recycling.

Customers can also bring in other various electronics to be recycled with Forever Green Recycling; click here for a more complete list of items. There is no need to fret over whether or not the vacuums and electronics will end up cluttering the landfill because of Forever Green Recycling’s 99% no-landfill policy.

Vacuums Unlimited and Forever Green Recycling have certainly come together with a different take on the idea of less-is-more, with less landfill clutter and more benefits for the customer and the environment. If you cannot make it for the event but still want to recycle your vacuum, check out their new recycling program.

There will even be a FREE raffle for a Hoover vacuum cleaner! No purchase or vacuum to sell to Vacuums Unlimited required, just stop by and pick up a ticket and they’ll email you if you’re the winner! So if you’re in the Washington, DC area and looking for a unique and fun festival event on the weekend to hit up, check out the first ever Vacuums Unlimited vacuum recycling event that’s just a 20 minute drive from Washington DC & just minutes from many wine festivals at local wineries!

For more information about the vacuum recycling event or local wine festivals in the Washington DC area, please visit our Facebook event page at: http://www.facebook.com/events/444342098951781/

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

Clark Kent to Superman! A vacuum’s metamorphosis to better cleaning.

One company shows how a vacuum can go from a traditional mild mannered canister to a pet hair destroyer with a long jab!!

This is the Miele S5211 Ariel Canister vacuum cleaner. At first glance it looks like your standard canister vacuum for cleaning, as if any canister made by the Miele Company can be called standard, but for the sake of this blog, its standard.

Well, we at GoVacuum thought about it and wanted to take a very popular vacuum that was only designed for hard surface floor cleaning and area rugs with low pile, and transform this vacuum into a pet hair grabbing, allergen filtering, ‘who cares how tall your staircase is’ extra long reach entity.

No we don’t have a god complex, more like Frankenstein.

So why not take a popular Miele canister vacuum and put a combination of accessories together so the consumer, especially pet lovers, has more amenities at their disposal?

So we did.

 

The Miele S5211 Ariel Canister vacuum w/ Hepa filter, STB 101 turbo tool, and SFS10 extension hose.

We took the S5211 Ariel, added the AH50 HEPA filter, so now the machine can filter 99.99% of all particles to the smallest 0.3 microns, and is also lined with charcoal to eliminate odors.

So stop blaming the dog (which is my go-to line) for that unpleasant odor and start using the HEPA filter that’s lined with charcoal.

We then added the STB Hand Held turbo tool. This turbo tool has a rotating brush which is driven by the airflow (suction) of the vacuum, and does a masterful job of grabbing pet hair off of all types of fabrics.

Finally we added the SFS10 extension hose. Everyone wants to leave the machine at the bottom of the stairs and just take the nozzle. Now you can.

I can just hear the roar of the crowd now!

The deafening applause to our creation.

Our main goal at GoVacuum is to give you honest recommendations of machines that will meet your cleaning needs the best, and come up with combinations of additional accessories to anticipate what those cleaning needs might be or what you will find useful within everyday life.

 

After purchasing the machine please 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!

Does anyone have answers?!? My vacuum sucks!

Many Consumers have this question and we at GoVacuum.com completely understand their frustration.  Trying to find answers to what’s the best vacuum to buy, which part is the correct one for my machine, or how do I replace this belt, can drive a person insane!!

That’s why GoVacuum.com has launched MyGoVacuum.com.  A community forum where vacuum owners can finally get the in-depth answers, share ideas, and read how to’s from GoVacuum.com experts and/or with fellow community members.

Now consumers can step out of the abyss.  Follow the proverbial bread crumbs.  In this case, tell mary anne to go towards the light (Poltergeist movie reference) and use these tools to build your vacuum knowledge because in the long run, this will save you money.

How about that, a retailer trying to save you money?

I wished when I was shopping for my new used car, the dealers would of told me, “No, not that one, that’s too expensive for what you are looking for.”  Or tell me, “not that one, those typically have transmission problems.”

If only I would of had a forum where I could go for all of my car buying needs, questions, and even repairs. Wait a second……

GoVacuum.com is now launching Go-Car-Info, for all of your……ah nevermind.  I’ll just focus on one thing at a time.  Plus I don’t know anything about cars, at least to that extent.

MyGoVacuum.com is the perfect forum for having discussions on quick fixes, cleaning and maintenance, or which vacuum is the best for the user’s particular preferences and needs.

Even if you’re on-the-go constantly, you can tweet us.

Not only will we answer your tweet, that correspondence will show up on the MyGoVacuum.com forum in case other consumers were wondering the same thing.

So stop the guesswork!
