Behind the Scenes: Our Brand New Office

Crucial Vacuum Brand New Office

After almost 6 years of consistently growing out of our office locations, we can finally say we made it to our brand new office space – and it feels awesome!

Collectively with our Crucial Vacuum family, we struggled to find the perfect location to root down and grow into. After searching near and far, we found an instant connection to an office space in Cresskill, NJ. It was an extensive project, one where we really had to use our imagination to envision our perfect space, but it was definitely worth it. Not only do we love the new vibes from our office but our performance levels have also gone through the roof.

 

Crucial Vacuum Brand New Office 2

Instead of a hard-pressed office with cubicles, we wanted to create an open environment to welcome Crucial Vacuum, our family of other Crucial Brands, along with any visitors that decide to stop by. We even removed the idea of a conference room by adding a lounge with a hanging chair and a ridiculously comfy couch. Now all of our meetings are like family gatherings.

This amazing new location has created a type of motivation that reflects on us throughout our day. The pop of orange seen throughout our office would make anyone smile, especially our Crucial Vacuum customer care team. We want to make sure our office reflects the positive energy that we want to reverberate back to our customers. With our new office space, you’ll know the Crucial Vacuum Care team is happy and willing to help all of our customers with their questions and inquiries.

Do you have any questions for our Crucial Vacuum team? Give us a call, shoot us an email or leave a comment below and feel free to ask us about our office space as well, as long as you don’t mind us chatting with you a bit.

Dyson DC49 Set To Be Smallest, Lightest Vacuum In Company’s History

Breaking news just in: Dyson announced the arrival of their newest vacuum cleaner, the DC49!

The Dyson DC49 will be the company’s smallest, lightest, and most technologically advanced vacuum to date. Dys0n’s come a long way in the USA with many iterations since they launched their first vacuum cleaner – the Dyson DC07 in the USA. This new release by Dyson is definitely something to marvel. Perfect for those city dwellers!

The vacuum is no larger than the standard sheet of printer paper and weighs less than six pounds

(Hang on to those dumbbells people)! Compared to the DC47 which is the previous Dyson ball vacuum model, this new vacuum is 30 percent smaller and significantly lighter. The Dyson DC49 vacuum is able carry all these features while still being the least noisy vacuum the company sells.

 

DC49 Smallest Vacuum

How did Dyson make this vacuum so small? Dyson was able to develop this vacuum with their new digital motor which offers Dyson the ability to shrink the size of the vacuum so significantly. But no worries Dyson groupies, this vacuum not only packs the same punch as the previous models, but actual exceeds the vacuum in suction capability and can pick up particles even smaller than the Dyson DC47 Ball.

How big is the dust bin? The Dyson DC49 has a dust bin that clocks in at .5 liters. While this is definitely a small size, this will allow the vacuum to be extremely light and portable to its users. Additionally, Dyson has assured its customers that it is the perfect vacuum for an apartment or a small home.

Unfortunately, the release of the Dyson DC49 Ball Vacuum is currently exclusive to the United Kingdom. However, we are willing to bet that this vacuum is headed to the good ole U.S. of A. in the next few months. While the price point might be high, this is definitely the perfect vacuum for those followers whose space is a premium and vacuum aficionados who hate too much noise! Dogs everywhere thank you!

Planting a Tree for Every 1,000 Vacuum Filters Sold

Last year, we promised Crucial Vacuum dot commers that every time you purchase our brand filter for your vacuum, it went towards planting a tree.

We’re still guided by this simple mission this year as we continue our efforts: for every 1,000 Crucial Vacuum branded filters purchased, we’ll be planting a tree at another local farm. It’s a big job and we could not have done it without the famers as well as our customers. It’s our first full year of working hand-in-hand with Farmers to directly support their efforts and help turn their dreams into a beautiful reality.

We are part of a larger global movement by harnessing the power of internet shoppers to do good!

Crucial Vacuum Gives Back

Chad, founder and CEO of Crucial Vacuum, has announced that through this initiative the company has hand-planted the following trees with the Many Hands Farm located in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts.

Baldwin Apple on M111 semi-dwarf stock
Coxs Orange Pippin Apple on M111 semi-dwarf stock
Enterprise Apple on M111 semi-dwarf stock
Honeycrisp Apple on M111 semi-dwarf stock
King of Tompkins County Apple on standard stock
Liberty Apple on Bud 118 semi-dwarf stock
English Morello Pie Cherry
Evans Pie Cherry
Garnet Beauty Peach
Reliance Peach

Each planting site was prepped in the fall of 2012 with a couple wheel barrows of compost and a few lbs of various rock dusts, which will break down slowly over our trees’ lifetime to provide nutrients for them.

We are very excited to see peaches growing on the tree! Come fall we will see more fruit ready to pick and eat.

Filter Turns Into a Peach

The success of Crucial Vacuums’ philanthropic business model has led to the company continuing it’s tree planting efforts for the upcoming year. Chad claimed “There is much more work to be done. We’ve entered a new era of giving, and it’s been so rewarding.”

HondaVac Vacuum Cleaner = No more Interior Car Washes?

Shopvac vacuums are not just for your garage any more. The next best thing is on the horizon; Honda is slated to release a 2014 Touring Elite model Odyssey with an optional vacuum cleaner, an industry first!  Co-developed with ShopVac, the HondaVAC  comes with various attachments, a replaceable Shopvac filter and canister bag, plus a hose they claim can reach virtually any area of the interior. I can only hope this feature filters down to various makes and models, because I can’t stand staring down stale French fries, loose change and other unmentionables stuck in hard-to-reach places in my car much longer. We’re confident that it’s quality will be top-notch, as is their extensive line of popular products that we carry replacement parts for, like the ShopVac Wet Dry cartridge filter. Crucial Vacuum is slated to provide parts for the HondaVAC in the future, so be sure to check our website for availability.

Honda Vac

I was waiting patiently for an entry-level vehicle with a fridge in it, but it seems like that option will be exclusive to luxury rides for the foreseeable future. Check out our extensive line-up of Shopvac Bags and Shopvac filters and stay tuned for the Hondavac vacuum filter coming to our website soon!
