The 1894 House

Evan Strittmatter

Recently, We installed a Hide a Hose System in a home built in 1894. This beautiful home still had the original, beautiful hardwood floors, A large sweeping staircase and acres of beautiful carpeting on the second floor. The owners tell us that it was always a challenge keeping up after their two dogs and their busy schedules. Once they saw Hide a Hose being demonstrated at the Indiana-Armstrong Home Show, they knew they had their answer. 

For just under 2 days, we routed the piping network throughout the home. Most Hide a Hose jobs take us under a day, but because of several unforeseeable obstacles, we were slowed down ever so slightly. With one inlet on the second floor, and one inlet on the main floor, both with 50' Hoses, the entire home was covered, allowing them to vacuum anywhere. Because the plaster walls in the home were so old, we decided to surface mount the Hide a Hose inlets, normally we only do this on garage or basement walls, but since we didn't want to effect the beautiful plaster work, the inlets were concealed in a closet and a cabinet, completely hiding them, but making them convenient and very accessible.

Powering the Hide a Hose system was a USA Made, Vacuflo 566Q. This is a wonderful power unit for standard inlet systems up to about 8,000 square feet and Hide a Hose Systems, up to about 4 Inlet Valves. This is a True Cyclonic unit, meaning we vented it outside. 96% of all dust picked up is filtered out by the cyclones while the remaining fine dust particles and germs are exhausted outside the living environment. The Vacuflo True Cyclonic units carry a Lifetime warranty on all permanently installed components and a 3 year labor warranty. 

 The customers elected for a TurboCat Zoom attachment kit and a RugRat Hand Turbo brush for keeping up after their 4 legged friends on their couches and smaller areas. The hardwood flooring is being kept clean by the innovative Axis floor tool that allows them to effortlessly and safely clean any kind of flooring surfaces. The unit is controlled by a radio frequency handle, allowing them to turn the unit on right from their fingertips instead of running back to the inlet to turn it off manually.
