Far too often, we hear stories about contractors purchasing consumer grade vacuums because they need them fast and they are convenient and inexpensive when picked up from the local 83282d42-ece5-4304-815b-b478cd79d425_400big box store. But when contractors purchase these vacuums, they fail to weigh the benefits of commercial vacuums and ultimately waste a lot of money investing in  “disposable vacuums” that hardly compare in quality.

When you buy a commercial vacuum for a professional setting, you are buying a piece of equipment that is built to handle the wear and tear and extended daily usage. Consumer vacuums are designed to be used in homes, meaning they are used once a week for no longer than 20 to 30 minutes at a time. When used in a professional setting, they often break quickly and warrant repairs that cost more than the vacuum is worth. On the other hand, commercial vacuums are designed with the end user in mind. They are built to be used 5 days a week and for up to five hours or more per day. The motors in commercial vacuums are manufactured for more cycles and to run for extended periods of time. Commercial vacuums also have a much higher air flow than consumer vacuums. Professional cleaning necessitates a heavy duty vacuum. The features on commercial vacuums far outweigh the benefits of consumer machines.

 At Pike Systems, we want you to start making informed purchasing decisions when shopping for a vacuum. We discuss you needs in order to match you with the right vacuum for the job. You are even able to test drive the vacuum before purchasing. Should your vacuum need repairs, we have in-house certified technicians to fix the equipment quickly and headache free. We also are proud to offer a Vacuum Management Program (VMP). VMP allows you to phase out old vacuums that have exceeded their life cycles and replace them incrementally with new vacuums.
