Central Vacuum & Built-in-Vacuum in Tacoma, WA

While Gary’s VACUFLO was founded over 30 years ago in Portland, in January, 2015, we opened our first Puget Sound office in Tacoma, next to McChord AFB. We are pleased to be offering the best combination of central vacuum and built-in vacuum products and services in the Tacoma, WA area. With the motto, “delightfully exceeding expectations at all times,” we look forward to serving you.

We’re on a mission – every home in America should have a central vacuum system. If you’ve had a central vacuum system in your home, you already know this. Our customers tell us all the time that they never want to live in a home again without a central vacuum system. And if you’ve not had a central vacuum system, probably the best reason to have one is the substantial health benefit when compared to a portable vacuum which is blowing exhaust into the air you’re breathing. Because central vacuum systems do not exhaust into your home, they’ve been shown to reduce allergy symptoms by 60%! That’s a valuable benefit for everyone, and especially for children and their developing lungs.

Hide A Hose

For decades, people have loved our central vacuum systems because they don’t have to lug a heavy vacuum cleaner around the house. But there was always the frustration of dealing with the hose. Great news, that problem is solved! Our Hide-A-Hose system uses the suction of the vac system to retract the hose back into the pipe in the wall. When you’re done vacuuming, just put your hand on the end of the hose to seal the system and watch the hose zip back into the wall. With Hide A Hose, the hose can be up to 50’ long, so each wall inlet covers about 2000 sq ft. And since we’re just using the suction of the system to retract the hose back into the pipe in the wall, there’s nothing to break or wear out. We have fun showing this to people because the first time that everyone sees this, they have a big grin.
