Engineered to Last a Decade+
That's because most vacuums sold today are designed to wear out in 1 to 2 years. If you get more life than that, you're doing better than most. Here are a few examples of why this happens
- Motors have a life span between 50 to 100 hours.
- Housing components are held together with inexpensive plastic "snap fits" because it's faster to assemble and keeps costs low.
- Design is focused on minimally acceptable cleaning performance, which is often a direct result of the overall unit cost to product.
- Time-proven structural materials, like steel, stainless steel, and quality seal materials are often replaced with an all-plastic construction.
Clearly, these characters aren't designed to hold up to your high standard of clean, and Riccar believes you deserve better, especially during a time when eliminating allergens and microscopic bacteria are at the forefront of many people's concerns.
"People spend a lot of money on their floors. But they don't always think about protecting their investment," said Doug Blocker, a Tacony senior engineer with 25 years of experience in inventive product design. "Some people are willing to spend $2,500 for a refrigerator to protect a couple hundred dollars of groceries for their family, but they only spend a couple hundred dollars to protect up to $25,000 for their flooring investment in carpets and solid surfaces."
"Think of Riccar vacuums as an insurance policy to protect the health of your family and the quality of your home. It's not just durability and convenience features that make the difference - it's about the components that protect floors from damage and take the guesswork out of operating a machine that's cricitcal to maintaining home health."
Put simply, designing and producing quality vacuums are a part of Riccar's DNA. Our customers are with us for the long haul, because, well, they have to be - they've been using our vacuums for 20-plus years.
Engineering is Key
Pushing and pulling with constant resistance. Tightly maneuvering around furniture and walls.
Does this sound familiar? While pressure, torque, and repetition can take their toll on vacuums, this doesn’t have to be the case. Think of your vacuum as like any other tool – while it always requires some labor on your part to operate the tool, Riccar engineers have worked tirelessly to design a vacuum that does the heavy lifting for you.
