ghostbusters-cast

How many of you are fans of the movie ‘Ghostbusters?’ Probably a lot of you because that movies awesome. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and the late great Harold Ramis took us on a ghostly adventure of epic proportions from battling spirits to blowing up a giant marshmallow man.  Now you’re probably saying to yourself, “Why is Crucial Vacuum talking about Ghostbusters?”.

Well two reasons. First, “Why not?” and second we’ve designed a backpack vacuum that not only will have you cleaning your house efficiently, but you’ll feel like a Ghostbuster while doing it.

The Crucial Backpack Vacuum & Blower is a rather incredible invention, much like the Proton Pack itself. With its sleek design and sheer EPICNESS the Crucial Backpack Vacuum will have your home spotless in no time at all.

Weighing only 12 pounds, this highly portable vacuum is perfect for anyone who is tired of lugging around larger vacuums, especially when it comes to cleaning stairs and navigating around furniture.

The vacuum also serves as a blower so whether you’re looking to clean around your house, or give your deck and patio a quick once over this backpack vacuum has you covered…literally come to think of it.

It comes with a variety of attachments including:

  • BackPack-Vacuum-CleaningDusting brush, crevice tool, pet hair remover, blower attachments, 2 floor brushes, a flexible hose and wand attachment.
  • Also included 5 cloth bags and 2 filters.

If you have kids go as far as making vacuuming a ‘fun game’ with this device. You may be able to dupe your kids into doing their chores while having a blast. At least that’s what I would do if I was a parent…come to think of it vacuuming is pretty awesome now that I have one of these things. I probably wouldn’t let my kids vacuum because I was too busy pretending to be Dr. Peter Venkman.

Anyway for the rest of March we’re giving away one of these beauties so be sure to check us Crucial Vacuums Twitter and Facebook to find out how you could win!

Find the Best Vacuum Cleaner For Your Needs!

Finding the best vacuum cleaner is difficult in our overly advertised world.

One company is showing a sleek new look while the other is stating how lightweight their vacuum is. Of course every vacuum cleaner company states that they have the best suction using their “technology” however the real proof is in the actual breakdown of how it functions. Every company can say their vacuum is the best compared to the rest, but before you spend your hard earned money, is the vacuum you are looking into ideal for your home?

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.

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!

Cleaning Pet Hair

I love my pets! I have two that are the sweetest, kindest, and most adorable little balls of fur. As much as I love playing with them, petting them, and having them part of my life, I hate the hair. It’s everywhere! I find pet hair on my carpets, furniture, and clothes. I’ve tried those lint rollers to pull clean the hard-to-get pet hair off my clothes and furniture, but it doesn’t do much.

Dander is sticky and helps fur stick to places we don’t want it. The more your pet cleans himself, the stickier the hair. Cats are exceptionally clean and their hair doesn’t budge unless it’s sticking to freshly laundered clothes. But there is a solution to cleaning up after little balls of fur. The Gonzo Pet Hair Lifter works for both cats and dogs! Even better, it is reusable and easy. Continue reading »
