SOMETIMES, life brings messy moments—the time the kids get crazy with confetti, say, or decide they want to help you bake cookies. Fortunately, with the right techniques and tools, you can relax and enjoy those moments and then clean it all up without spoiling the fun.
Good clean (messy) fun
Here are a few hints that can help:
• Take precautions. If you have kids or pets, make sure sharp knives, scissors, tools and similar objects, artwork, fine stemware and other breakables, as well as cleaning solutions, are tucked away in a safe place.
• Keep a supply of eraser-like stain removers on hand. These dispense melamine foam that can eliminate crayon marks on walls, scuff marks on floors or other stains.
• Keep everyone’s hands clean and germ free. Put bottles of anti-bacterial soap around the house.
• Consider a central vacuum system. With up to 700 air watts of cleaning power and a high-efficiency motor that can capture three to five times more dirt and allergens than a typical vacuum without stirring up dust, the new Beam Alliance Central Vacuum System by Electrolux can make quick work of almost any mess.
Something else to make your life better: The system removes 100 percent of contacted dust and allergens, improving indoor air quality. The Alliance system also offers Hepa air filtration that prevents particulates of 0.3 microns or larger from re-entering the living space.
The motor uses at least 30 percent less energy than comparable systems and emits only 68 decibels—less than the sound of a doorbell, when operating.
Unmatched versatility with adjustable power controls lets you clean curtains, collectibles and other delicate items, while a low-voltage utility valve means you can control the system from the hose handle when cleaning a garage, car, boat or basement.
Two-way communication between the power unit and hose handle keeps you informed about the system’s operating efficiency, and a fail-safe collection receptacle snaps into place to ensure a perfect fit and perfect seal every time.
