The central vacuum system is a major factor in the success of the express exterior carwash. Customers want a vacuum system that is user-friendly and one that enables them to clean quickly and efficiently with little effort or elbow grease.

Along with these advancements comes the need for more power. Today’s washes are larger than ever. Operators need to fill 16 spaces minimum, with some properties capable of servicing 40 or more vacuum stations.
Based on operator feedback, we have found 85 percent of express customers will use the vacuum system to vacuum their car. On a busy day, the central vacuum system must be able to provide enough power for every vacuum station. Remember: One bad experience for just one customer can translate into hundreds, even thousands, of lost profits for your business.
