WEBSTER CITY, Iowa – June 15, 2004 – Homeowners can clean faster and more thoroughly than ever before with the new Beam Advocate, a complete cleaning ensemble that maximizes the convenience, cleaning power, quiet performance and healthy indoor air benefits of a central vacuum system.
“The Beam Advocate Power Team takes the whole-house cleaning capability of a built-in central vacuum to a new level,” says John Coghlan, president of Beam Industries. “Its superior air flow improves upon Beam’s clinically proven ability to reduce allergy symptoms. It removes more dust, dirt and allergens from the living area than any other hose and powerhead assembly.”
A large 1 3/8-inch diameter hose and chevron-shaped powerhead brush allow the system to cover more area and pull more dust through the system than any other power team on the market. The Advocate’s power head, for use on carpeted surfaces, also features a halogen headlamp that improves visibility, particularly in dark corners and under furniture. Its cogged belt and innovative gear design assure quiet operation, about the level of ordinary conversation, and years of reliable, worry free performance.
The Beam Advocate’s ergonomically designed handle and tools include an E-Z Change™ tool release and telescopic wand that allow the user to clean a variety of surfaces from floor to ceiling with minimal disruption, speeding the cleaning process.
The Beam Advocate can be used with any Beam Central Vacuum System power unit, as well as competitive models.
A recent clinical study by the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine found allergy patients’ symptoms improved 46 percent to 61 percent when they used a Beam Central Vacuum System instead of a conventional vacuum to clean their homes. As a result, Beam Central Vacuum Systems have been installed in, or are recommended for a variety of healthy home developments and demonstration projects, such as the American Lung Association’s Health House National Demonstration Project, Build Green Colorado, and the University of Florida’s Madera Green Building Project.
