After another successful Home Show at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal we want to thank; Sylvie from ExpoPromtion, our staff and all the clients who helped make this show such a success. With the recent closing of the Electrolux plant in L'Assomption it is important for us to attend these shows and explain to our clients how we have no affiliation with Electrolux Sweden and we are now none as "Aerus". We are not going out of business!! To the contrary, we are growing our product line and selling more vacuum cleaners, air purifiers and water filters than ever before!! As for the many customers who bought the little red Electrolux vacuum and told us it is not the same quality as their old Electrolux, make no mistake we want you back as a client and we will offer you up to a $300 trade in on the purchase of a "Aerus Electrolux" vacuum cleaner.
For anyone building a home, doing renovations or just looking to upgrade some stuff around their home in the Montreal area, I can tell you a dedicated Home Show is where you want to start looking. First off there is so many wonderful products (no just vacuum cleaners) but windows, flooring, roofs, pools, saunas to name a few, but also there are so many knowledgeable business owners, sales associates and customer representatives on hand that you can get a new perspective on any type of project or item you may want to buy for your home.
For myself, I am always anxious to go see what the competitors are offering not only in terms of pricing but also new products and services being offered. By understanding our competition we strive to offer the best value in terms of both services rendered and products on offer. With our dedicated "Healthy Home Product Line" our clients can easily see that not only our vacuum cleaners, but our air purifiers, water purifiers and our newest healthy home product the Laundry Pro are truly best in class innovative products that will make us the clear market leader in the "Healthy Home" category for years to come.
A little note on the Laundry Pro: It's always amazing to see someones reaction to our claim of laundry without soap! No one believes it, but it's true... It's not surprising the same company that entered the air purification space 10 years ago, when no one really believed air purifiers would work has thought up such a innovative product! When I say I personally have not used soap to clean my clothes for the last 9 months I still have a hard time believing it, but it's true. If you want to understand how it works take a look at this video
We are excited for February 5th when we will back at the BIG O "Booth 212" to showcase our healthy home product line once again. Until then you can come visit us at any of our locations and see what montrealaerus.com has to offer.
Choosing the right vacuum cleaner for you. Should I buy a canister, upright or central vacuum? A look at the Montreal market and living space. Part 2 the canister vacuum
Canister: This is the second most popular style of vacuum cleaner after the upright model, but it is quickly gaining market share for many reasons. First I would like to state that my personal preference towards the Upright or Canister style vacuum clearly lands in with the canister machine. This being said there are certain customers I have that have tried the canister style machine and quickly return back to their beloved upright. However, the versatility of a canister machine along with the strong suction (our guardian platinum model offers 535 air watts which is similar to a central vacuum on wheels) makes the canister style my preferred cleaning tool for homes in the 21st century.
-Very versatile unit with attachments on board the machine (from carpet to floor with a quick change of attachment)
-Picks up well on carpets and hard surfaces (offers more suction power than upright)
-Lightweight on the hand as you are only holding a hose.
-Fits perfectly on the stairs.
-Takes up more storage space than a Upright.
-More likely to have repairs to the body of the unit as the machine follows you.
- Any type of home or condo with different surfaces (carpets, granite, marble, tile, linoleum to name a few).
- Homes with several floors as the machine is lightweight and is perfect for stairs.
- People who want the best suction power and best cleaning results.
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR
- I would personally recommend the canister vacuum cleaner for all home types (Condos, apartments, cottages, ranch style split level and even commercial use) we sell canister models too many leading hotel chains including the Fairmount, Sheraton, Hilton and Holiday Inn hotel groups in the Montreal area.
As I stated earlier when it comes to what I think is the better vacuum cleaner for your home the canister model is the clear winner. Yes I must say they do tend to break a little more often than the upright models, but due to the versatility and how much more suction power there is in a canister I have a hard time advising my clients to go with a upright over a canister. Considering that Electrolux or Aerus as we are now known has been manufacturing a American made canister vacuum cleaner for over 90 years there is no wonder why I think the canister is the best bang for your buck. If you are in the market for a new canister vacuum cleaner you owe it to yourself to see what all the different options are. At montrealaerus.com we actually offer a free in home demonstration, which lets you see just how the vacuum cleaner will work in your home. Take one of our canister models for a test drive I guaranty you will not be disappointed.
Did you know that the average person spends 90% of their time indoors? That means that the majority of the air we breathe comes from our homes and other indoor settings. Indoor air quality is a growing concern, as it is surprisingly two to five times more polluted than outdoor air.
Here are 5 tips from Aerus to help reduce pollution in your home.
1 - Ensure Proper ventilation, especially when cooking or using paint, cleaning products or pesticides, can greatly reduce the amount of dangerous and toxic chemicals in the air.
2 - Ban indoor smoking. From your home and suggest that all guests smoke outside.
3 - Regular Inspection. Make sure your home is inspected regularly and that all heating and air conditioning units are properly maintained to eliminate pollutants such as mold, mildew and carbon monoxide from seeping into your home.
4 – Vacuum regularly. According to the American Lung Association regular vacuuming is an excellent way to rid your home of unwanted particulates. Invest in a HEPA vacuum to ensure the dust stays in the vacuum and is not redistributed back into your homes air stream.
5 - HEPA HEPA HEPA: Invest in a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration system, which removes 99.97% of airborne particles.
Do you wake up each morning with a stuffy nose? Or perhaps you've noticed that your office seems to collect dust along with paperwork? Indoor environments are often more polluted than outdoor ones, and the Environmental Protection Agency has stated that the air indoors can be five times more polluted than the air outdoors. With so many people suffering from allergies and asthma today, the Guardian Angel is a simple solution to living better in your home.
This is the patented 5 stage filtration process
Who is this product for?
If you have a small living space, or want to concentrate on a small area such as a office or bedroom the Guardian Angel is an ideal solution. If you suffer from asthma or allergies get some relief today and introduce the Guardian Angel into your home.
If you are interested, remeber the healthy home experts at www.montrealaerus.com are able to offer you a free air quality test to offer you custom built air filtration solutions for your home.
According to data released by the Epidemiology And Allergic and Respiratory Diseases (EPAR) Department from Sorbonne University and the Institut National de le Santé et de la Recherche-Médicale (INSERM), indicate that air pollution may cause new cases of asthma.
This does not surprise me, but what does surprise me are the numbers. Where 1 in 7 children living close to heavily congested streets could develop asthma or 1 in 4 children who live in an area with heavy pollution can develop asthma. As someone who has had breathing difficulties (light asthma and heavy allergies) these numbers seem quite high. I guess I can be thankful for growing up in Suburbia and not exposing myself to “heavy pollution”. I do feel however, that as we are becoming more and more aware of the health effects of air pollution emissions by industrial sectors in the West it has significantly decreased in heavily populated areas. I also wonder, how in the world am I supposed to not breathe in the “dirty” air that’s outside? I suppose, all I can do is wait for better regulations from the government on emissions from cars and industries?
But what about in my home or office?
What’s really concerning is that we are spending 90% of our time indoors where the pollution is often times worse than outdoors. Issues such as unvented gas or kerosene heaters, tobacco use, solvents, painting adhesives and other similar materials can all cause people to suffer greatly (runny nose, watery eyes, dry throat to name a few conditions). So what can we do if the air inside our homes is polluted? For this problem there certainly is a solution, may I start by suggesting a free air quality test.
Once an air quality test is completed and you are made aware of the air inside your home and whether or not you have a problem there are many solutions. Perhaps you can vacuum more often, invest in some air purification equipment, or even open your windows or doors more often for longer periods of time. Whatever you decide, at least you can say you are taking action to fight indoor air pollution and keep allergens and irritants in your home at a minimum.
