House of Vacuums – Edmond Favorite
Whether you’re searching for household products to clean upholstery, carpet, specialty rugs, tile or wood floors, House of Vacuums, 1425 S. Santa Fe Ave. offers products to keep all types of flooring and furniture looking, feeling and smelling great.
The vacuum store and repair shop has been in the Edmond community since 1976, offering customers everything from chemical-free green cleaning supplies and odor-eliminating products, to steamers for chemically-sensitive individuals and allergy-prone Oklahomans, and a variety of vacuums for non-carpet areas.
Owner Bob March said the store’s prices are also a big factor in what keeps people coming back.
“We try to figure out what their exact needs are, what their flooring situation is, whether it’s carpet, hardwood or a combination of both, whether they have pets or allergies,” March said. “Once we determine that and find the right product, for a lot of customers, it’s kind of shocking to learn they don’t need a certain feature and the vacuum is half the price they thought it was going to be.”
All products carried have the House of Vacuums’ stamp of approval, so you’re never sold something the store’s experts don’t believe in. Customers can even walk away with a courtesy vacuum to use while theirs is being repaired, and take advantage of try-before-you-buy options for new vacuums.
The store carries a highly effective private-label spot remover and a glass cleaner that March says is “the best glass cleaner you can get.” Many customers prefer to use the non-streaking spray on tinted windows, mirrors and chrome motorcycle parts.
March started working for the company as a college student in 1994 and bought the business four years later. He’s proud to be a small business owner in Edmond and cherishes those customers who continue to shop local and support the community, given the vast online options and nearby big-box stores. Those customers, he said, make the job worthwhile.
“What I enjoy most is the people and the community that we’re in,” March said. “After 20 years of doing this, I’ve seen three generations come in and, in some cases, four generations. It’s really about them – the people, the customers and the caring.”
