With a double garage and 2 cars, I have often found that a number of wall mounted vacuums fall short of my requirements for a wall mounted vacuum. I find that the hose length cannot stretch far enough to clean both garages. When I find the VacuMaid GV50PRO professional wall mounted utility vacuum, I realized this may just be what I have always needed. If the hose length is important to you, then you may like this product. This VacuMaid GV50PRO review will give you as much information as you need to decide if you should own one.
Who is it made for?
A homeowner with a garage and car seems to be the right fit for this vacuum. It can do a good job in the workshop as well and in the home in areas that are near the garage like the driveway, laundry or kitchen since the hose can stretch far.
Features of the VacuMaid GV50PRO Professional Wall Mounted Utility Vacuum
The VacuMaid GV50Pro has one of the longest hose you can find. The 50-foot hose gives you a lot of reach and if you have 2 cars, you can vacuum both without having to move one out of the way. For example when using the normal wall mounted vacuums, after vacuuming one car in the garage, I would have to move it to the driveway and then bring in the second one, but with this long hose, it would be possible to vacuum a car in the driveway or in the second garage.
The length of the hose does not affect the suction, it is able to suck up dirt quickly and effectively. It has a strong 5.7 motor that delivers sufficient suction to clean your car, garage or basement. You should not have to go over the same place a number of times in order to get the surface free of dust or debris. Suction is one of the most important features on a shop vac and luckily that is something you may not have to worry about when you use the VacuMaid.
Assortment of tools
To help effectively clean the different surfaces of the car like carpets, dashboard, and chairs, the Vacuum comes with an assortment of tools that suit the particular area. For example you can use the brush tool for cleaning the dashboard while the crevice tool can come in handy to clean in-between the seat and the backrest which is too tight for bigger tools and the upholstery nozzle will naturally be fit for cleaning upholstery, this makes the vacuum versatile and saves you money you would have spent to buy the necessary tools
HEPA collection bag
The collection bag on this unit works like a HEPA filter, it traps fine dust and ensures the quality of air where you are vacuuming is free from allergens usually found in dust. This also is a plus because it avoids messy dumping of dirt and other waste collected since all you need to do is remove the bag from the tank and go and dump the dust without some remaining in the canister or getting trapped in the motor which would spoil it. Even though you may have to spend on buying filter bags, they are worth the money.
The VacuMaid GV50Pro comes with an easy to install wall bracket. If you have the necessary tools like a drill and screwdrivers, you should have it up on the wall in about 10 minutes. Being able to hang the unit on the wall saves space in the garage and while you are using the vacuum there is less risk of it tipping over. I find that when a vac is on the wall it is much faster to start using it than when you need to pull it out from a cupboard or from under the sink.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

For a garage vacuum, it should be convenient having a long hose which enables you reach every corner of the garage and the car. it is also convenient not to have to look for space to keep the vacuum since it comes with a wall bracket to mount it. When all is said and done, you will probably appreciate this product for its ease of use and efficiency in vacuuming the garage, car and blowing leaves.
