Advice on how to select a vacuum for a professional cleaning service

I have been in Orlando at the ARCSI Executive Leadership Conference.  One of the vendors there, CleanMax, had a great variety of vacuums and I thought it would be a good chance to shoot a short video explaining some features and things to consider when buying a vacuum for a professional cleaning service. It also ties nicely into my work as part of the Institute for Service Excellence.  We have a whole chapter of our book and 90 minutes of the Home Cleaning Technician class dedicated to tools and equipment and this will give you a preview of some of the information we share in the class.

Thanks Derek. So does CRI LIST those vacs that receive their ratings?

Excellent info and advice, Derek. I attended the HCT class in Orlando this past week - 2 days of non-stop technical info for the most post. Your vacuum video demo is a great help to see another brand of vacuum in action. Thanks for taking the time to share with me. Dee Strickland

Sara, great question. Sorry for the delay I have been out of town on vacation. This web site has more details on the CRI testing methods and on the right hand side of the page there is a search function to find CRI certified vacuums. http://www.carpet-rug.org/residential-customers/cleaning-and-maintenance/seal-of-approval-products/vacuums.cfm
