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.

So Many Vacuum Filters… Where Should I Start?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it doesn’t matter how often you are vacuuming, or how often you are changing your vacuum’s bag. If your vacuum’s filter isn’t properly maintained, you simply are not doing enough to keep your air safe and your home clean! Your vacuum’s filter works to trap dirt, dust, and allergens to keep them out of your air. But if your filter is dirty or clogged, those particles are simply going to get tossed back into the air.

So, now that you know you simply must maintain your vacuum’s filter, what’s next? Shopping for vacuum filters can be overwhelming if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Here’s a breakdown of the different types of filters out there: Continue reading »

Save Time and Money By Washing Your Vacuum’s Filter, Seriously!

I talk a lot about washing your vacuums filter. But I bet I know what a lot of you are thinking. Wash my vacuum filter? Is she nuts? Well, I’m not. Crucial Vacuum actually sells washable filters for your vacuum. If you don’t have one yet, you’re missing out!

Because let’s be honest, how many of us are guilty of waiting way too long to change our vacuum’s filter? Well, I hate to break it to you but you are really not getting much out of your vacuum if your filter isn’t clean.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just rinse your filter out rather than buying a new one? Well, you actually can!

Don’t feel too bad, washable filters are a fairly new trend. The “washability” of our filters allows you to reuse the same filter over and over, therefore saving you time, and most importantly- money!

What is a HEPA filter? I’m so Glad You Asked!

In case you haven’t noticed, at Crucial Vacuum we are pretty crazy about our HEPA filters. I suggest vacuuming with a good HEPA filter in nearly every post I write. But I have never really talked much about what a HEPA filter is. So, let’s talk about it!

What is HEPA?

HEPA stands for “high efficiency particulate arresting”. HEPA filters are air filter that trap almost all the dust and dirt particles down to and including 0.3 microns (AKA tiny particles of dirt and dust).

The way HEPA filters are made is what makes them more effective than other filters. They are made up of glass fibers, placed on top of one another, like pleats. These fibers are held together with the help of frames placed inside. Because the fibers are held so tightly together, it is nearly impossible for most contaminants to pass through. Therefore they become trapped inside the filter, instead of floating freely in your air.

Not just any filter can claim to be a HEPA filter either! The government has standards that a filter must meet before it can bear the HEPA name. In order to pass the test, filters must have the capability to trap at least 99.97% of .3 microns. That’s some serious trap-ability!
