We get Letters! People Like Capital Vacuums Service!

Capital Vacuums Letter
We Get Letters! Just for doing what we do! We Really Like Our Customers and we think we should take care of them!
Here's what the letter says:
"Dear John,
I have a Sears Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner about 5 years old. The wheel kept coming off and it really became hard to push. I called your shop and asked if you service Kenmores and you said you service all makes, so I brought in the end of July. You went through it top to bottom, replacing the bottom of the power head, new bag, brush, light, filter, shined it up, and now it cleans better than when I bought it. It now pushes with ease. Capital Vacs is an impressive shop and you guys are the best to deal with. You couldn't be more helpful advising wether to repair or replace - no high pressure to buy if it is not needed. I will be using you again as the need arises and definitely will recommend your service to others for vacuum cleaner needs. The machines, I think, don't get the attention they deserve for the work we ask them to do for us. Great Job Guys.

Are you or do you know someone who is a Vacuum Cleaner Abuser ?

Posted by John Gregory on Sat, Mar 22, 2014 @ 08:03 AM

Is your Vacuum being abused?

It's to be expected that the vacuum would take some abuse. It is a Vacuum Cleaner after all. All we do with it is pick up dirt. Every time we use it we throw dirt in it.

miele vacuum albany ny sebo vacuum electrolux albany ny

Don't worry, go ahead and make a mess, the Vacuum Cleaner will take care of it! It's only purpose is to pick up our mess. 

Vacuum "abusers" do more than just put dirt in the Vacuum Cleaner.

Vacuum Abusers:

  • Never change the Vacuum bag
  • Never empty the dirt cup
  • Never put the Vacuum back where it belongs
  • Loose the attachments so they are never where they should be
  • Don't use the tools for what they were intended
  • Bang the vacuum into walls and furniture
  • Run over anything that's in the way
  • Yank the cord out of the wall 
  • Try to use the Vacuum to pick up liquids
  • Never check the belt
  • Never get the vacuum serviced
  • Never change the filter
  • Never use a deodorizer in the vacuum bag 
  • Let the dog chew the cord
  • Run over the cord when Vacuuming 

You get the idea. 

The good news is there is help. Something can be done about it!

How To Choose A Vacuum Cleaner

Posted by John Gregory on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 @ 11:09 AM

vacuum albany nyWant to Make Sure You're Getting the Best Value?

Of course you do. Look - you'll be vacuuming your home for years to come. Shouldn't you get a vacuum that will last? Shouldn't you buy one that will save you money in the long run?

We think so. That's why we've assembled five tips for evaluating a vacuum purchase.

1. How Well Does it Clean?

All vacuums are not created equal. Does yours really get the dirt and dust out? Make sure to ask your salesperson just how well it gets the dirt out of your carpet, and the grunge off your floor.

2. How Easy is it to Use?

The vacuum you buy should be tailored to your needs. It should be easy to use for every task you need to accomplish.

For example, do you need to clean multiple types of surfaces? Or maybe you need to clean cobwebs off the ceiling? If so, make sure you get something flexible enough to adapt to every surface.

It's all about making sure a vacuum does what you need it to do.

3. How Long Will it Last?

You'll be vacuuming for years to come. Why throw away your money on a vacuum you'll have to replace in 18 months? Shouldn't you have a vacuum that's covered by a great warranty? One that will clean well for years?

Make sure to ask your salesperson how well a vacuum will be cleaning in a few years. If he's not sure, maybe you're not shopping at the right place.

Ask about the warranty, too. Is one available? Does the vacuum need to be shipped somewhere just to get repaired?

If so, maybe you should reconsider your purchase. We offer a great warranty on all of our products. We keep every part you can think of right here on hand, and we service all of our vacuums on the premises. That means you have less downtime and less cost. We'll even loan you one of our own vacuums until we have yours repaired and working like new!

Try to get that kind of service from a department store.

4. Does it Make The Air in Your Home Cleaner or Dirtier?

Air quality is a major health concern, especially in homes with children or senior citizens. And your vacuum could be contributing to the problem.

Make sure to ask your salesperson - "Does the dirt stay in the machine?" Listen for an answer that includes HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arrest) filters. These filters must pass a test that certifies them to remove 99.97% of potentially hazardous particles from the air. Without HEPA filters, you can't be sure how much dust your vacuum is just blowing back out into the air you breathe.

If your salesperson doesn't talk about HEPA filters, maybe you should get a second opinion.

5. Where Should You Purchase It?

No vacuum is indestructible. Make sure to buy yours from a shop that can service it and supply it with the parts you need, even years down the road.

That's the kind of service that we're proud to provide. We have our own experienced repair staff who will work on your vacuum right in our service department. We make sure they have all the parts and tools they need to get the job done right and in a timely manner.

We make sure to keep replacement parts for years down the line. All to make certain that no matter how long ago you bought your vacuum, we can make it run like new.

You won't get that from a "big box" store. That's the kind of service you'll only get from a dedicated local vacuum shop.
