Options for Central Vacuum Hose Management

You love your central vacuum, of course. Since you’ve had it installed, you’ve found that cleaning your home is a great deal easier and more convenient. You no longer have to lug a heavy vacuum cleaner from room to room and then search the room for the best outlet to use.

Your cleanup time has decreased because the vacuum is more powerful than any portable one you’ve ever had. Best of all, the air quality in your house is better than ever, and you’ve noticed your seasonal allergies aren’t bothering you nearly as much. You wouldn’t trade your central vacuum for anything, but you do have one complaint: hose management.

The majority of customers who have central vacuums installed are absolutely thrilled by the time they save, to say nothing of how much cleaner homes they now enjoy. However, many customers still struggle to find the best way to handle the hose. While it’s better than lugging a portable vacuum around, the hose of a central vacuum can still be a bit unwieldy and difficult to control. That’s why it’s important to find a proper hose management system. Fortunately, there are a number of options you can take advantage of. Read on to discover a few of them.

WallyFlex Hose

If you’re looking to clean smaller spaces or you have a particular area that needs a lot of attention, consider having a WallyFlex hose installed. This is a small auxiliary hose that can be mounted to the wall in any part of the home you want. So, for example, if you find that your kitchen regularly gets messy, you can have a small, unobtrusive WallyFlex installed there. When you discover that there’s a mess, just grab the small vacuum unit from the wall and clean it up easily.

WallyFlex boasts a thirteen-foot expandable hose, which renders it easy to clean dry messes in any given room. Its greatest benefit is that it’s affordable; if you already have your central vacuum unit installed, it’s no problem to add on the WallyFlex as an attachment. For bigger jobs, you’ll still be able to take out the larger hose and deal with them without trouble.

Retractable Hose

One of the most popular methods of central vacuum hose management, a retractable hose is meant to save you space and keep you from having to drag a big, heavy hose from room to room. Its convenience and ease of use are what make it so popular with central vacuum customers. It’s even easier to vacuum your home than you might think.

When you’re ready to vacuum your home, you can easily draw the retractable hose from the wall. It saves you a great deal of space because that hose isn’t coiled up in a cabinet or placed in any of your other valuable storage spaces. Instead, it’s actually kept inside the wall. When it’s time to use it, you simply pull it out and attach the powered cleaning head to the device. With everything set up, you can go to work within minutes. As soon as you’re done cleaning, you can remove the powered cleaning head, and the hose will make use of the central vacuum’s already present suction to draw itself back into the wall.

Once you make use of a retractable hose, you’ll never want to go back to portable vacuums again. You’ll find that, since the dirt is drawn straight into the wall and brought to the filter near the main motor of the central vacuum, there is no dirty air being blown around. Your air will remain cleaner and healthier than ever before. The system is also very quiet! You’ll no longer have to worry about vacuuming becoming a loud and obnoxious time. Instead, you’ll find it quick, easy, and relaxing.


Something of a similar product to WallyFlex, the Vroom is a small retractable hose designed for the convenient cleaning of small spaces. It’s ideal for dry messes in anywhere from the kitchen to the garage to the bedrooms. The retractable hose of the Vroom 24 has a twenty-four-foot reach that is both lightweight and durable. The Vroom 18 is a similar product, with an eighteen-foot hose and slightly smaller dimensions.

With the Vroom system, you’ll likely be most impressed by how quickly it works. If you walk into a room and discover it’s become dusty or something has been spilled, you can be drawing out the hose and beginning the cleaning process within seconds. At that rate, larger messes will have no time to pile up, and you’ll have the cleanest home you’ve ever lived in. No traditional cleaning method, be it portable vacuum, dustbuster, or broom, can compare to that level of speed and convenience.

Spot by Vroom

Spot is similar to Vroom’s other products, but as you may have gleaned from its name, it is designed specifically with a certain area in mind. Suppose that you have a place in your home that experiences the same mess over and over. In this case, the Spot can be used to quickly and effectively clean up that mess.

For example, many pet owners choose to have a Spot placed in the area where their pets eat. If your beloved dog or cat happens to be a messy eater, you’ve probably walked into the room many times to see dry cat or dog food scattered everywhere. With the Spot by Vroom, you’ll find that cleaning up this mess is no problem at all.
