Sanitaire release

June 2, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, IL – Sanitaire, a leading manufacturer of commercial vacuum cleaners, has announced that it has doubled its warranty coverage on most of its models, increasing its parts, service and labor warranty from one year to two.
The company is calling its newly-extended warranty program the “"anitaire Promise of Performance" as a means to emphasize its quality commitment to the company’s legendary vacuum cleaner models, which are widely known as the most durable and dependable available. The new warranty effectively doubles the warranty on Sanitaire commercial vacuums from one to two full years from the date of purchase.
"We have already enhanced the durability of our products by making numerous improvements in recent months," explains Brad Hoare, General Manager of Eureka and Commercial Brands. "As an example, we developed a longer lasting motor that ensures our vacuum cleaners will stay on the job and out of the repair shop."
"But we wanted to do more to strengthen our partnership with our customer, and to demonstrate that we stand behind our products to reduce their maintenance costs and downtime," Hoare says. "That’s why we’re introducing the Sanitaire Promise of Performance, to offer our customers even more confidence that they can depend on Sanitaire to keep performing."
The new two-year warranty on Sanitaire commercial products covers parts, material, workmanship—even labor—making it one of the best in the industry. The warranty covers all models, including the flagship DuraLux® and the new lightweight upright DuraLite®. Models excluded are SC678, SC679 and SC689.
The Sanitaire Brand was recently rated first in quality and durability. Each Sanitaire product is backed by a network of more than 1,500 warranty service centers throughout the United States.
A member of the Electrolux Home Care Products family since 1974, Sanitaire has earned the reputation as an industry leader by producing the most durable and serviceable commercial upright vacuums in the industry. The current line of Sanitaire vacuum cleaners includes uprights, canisters, back-packs, floor machines, industrial carpet cleaners, air movers and accessories.
Included in the Sanitaire commercial line-up are 13 models which are part of their Green Cleaning Line, a collection offering superior cleaning power and has passed stringent CRI Green Label™ testing for soil removal, dust containment and carpet appearance retention. The Sanitaire Green Cleaning Line is designed to provide commercial environments with cleaner indoor air through higher levels of filtration to achieve a positive environmental benefit.
