  • Quick Cleaning Tips From Our Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Team

    It’s strange how quickly the day can pass you by!

    Your to-do list may include only two or three things, but as you enter the day, you find tangential items to suck your time up and keep you occupied for far longer than you anticipated. We understand. Maybe you lose your wallet and your keys for a while, looking under and inside everything with an underneath or an interior only to find them both in your right hand, and company’s going to be there in twenty minutes and you haven’t cleaned up yet.

    In a world like this, it’s important to save time when you can. It’s why we’ve made our cordless vacuum cleaner so simple, so light, and so easy to use. In the spirit of the efficiency mission, here are some tips to get the house clean in time, with a minute or two to sit on your couch.

    Quick Cleaning Tips

    IMG SRC: http://www.sandiegoprocleaning.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/dusting-furniture.s600x600.jpg

    Wipe surfaces once with minimal cleaner

    Your instinct is to pile on the cleaning solution when you’re in a hurry to clean your surfaces, but wiping once will kill the bacteria and usually remove the mess. Excessive cleaner will leave visible residue.

    Wear an apron

    Seem silly? Not as silly as ruining your outfit with bleach, or soaking yourself with water. Let the apron bear the brunt of your cleaning frenzy, and toss it aside when you’re done. It will save you time not worrying about getting anything on your outfit.

    Organize your cleaning supplies every time

    Make sure that you always know exactly where each type of cleaner you use is at all times, and group all your cleaners together. That way there’s never a scramble, and you can approach the cleaning methodically.

    Clean logically

    Move from area to area; don’t haphazardly clean random parts of each room on instinct because you see a mess somewhere. Take it one room at a time, and go from dry to wet, i.e. dust first, then wipe; sweep first, then mop, etc. A routine is the path to efficiency.

    And when push comes to shove, if you need your home to look tidy for guests, get creative! If the dishwasher is full, throw the rest of your dishes in the oven. No one will see them there! (Note: This only works if you don’t plan on cooking for your guests).

    Don’t worry about vacuuming, the AirRam has made it painless and fast. It’s the best cordless vacuum for the job. Follow these tips, develop your own, and you’ll be doing an hour’s worth of cleaning in fifteen minutes!

    What are you doing to clean up quickly? We’d love to hear your tips, too, so tell us about them on Facebook and Twitter! Keep checking the blog for more updates the cleaning world.

  • Gtech Offers Special Promotion on AirRam Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    Brookstone shoppers to receive $50 gift card with purchase of a Gtech AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner

    Gtech USA today announced today a special promotion for Brookstone AirRam shoppers. From now to August 10, 2013, customers will receive a gift card worth $50 off any item in Brookstone (stores and online) with the purchase of an AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner.

    "This special promotion is a great opportunity for customers to get their hands on the AirRam they've heard so much buzz about," said Steve Schwartz, Brookstone vice president merchandising and product development. "We really believe this vacuum changes the way you clean and take care of your home. We're excited to offer such a rich promotion to our shoppers and invite them to see a demo at their local Brookstone store."

    The Gtech AirRam is the first cordless, bagless, canister-free vacuum on the market that in third-party tests of cleaning performance, has been shown to outperform a number of cordless vacuums and performs as well as various corded vacuum brands**.

    The cordless vacuum cleaner represents the most significant evolution in vacuum development over the last 20 years, and brings myriad first-time technological and design developments to the category, including:

    • Dirt-to-tray technology: Unlike any other vacuum on the market (cordless, and those with a canister or bag) the AirRam’s direct dirt-to-tray technology compresses dust and debris into bales that can be emptied right into the trash
    • Gtech data bridge program: The AirRam can be connected to a computer via USB to monitor battery life, energy usage, energy cost savings, and the calories burned while using the AirRam.
    • Ultra-low profile: The AirRam has an ultra-low profile that allows for easy cleaning under chairs and tables clean any type of floor (tile, carpet or wood) without attachments or any adjustments and is only 7.7 pounds (less than half the weight of a standard vacuum cleaner)
    • Long run time:  A full charge takes four hours and powers the vacuum for a runtime of up to 40 minutes, allowing consumers to clean an average U.S.  home on a single charge.

    The Gtech AirRam is available for purchase from Brookstone stores and at Brookstone.com and at select Brookstone retailers nationwide.

  • Experts Weigh in Gtech Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    The AirRam is on fire!

    Media and public alike have unanimously cried out in praise of the energy-saving, lightweight cordless vacuum cleaner, and we can’t say we’re surprised. It’s light, it’s efficient, it saves energy, and it looks like a friendly companion to any American home.

    In case you’re not convinced, we’ve let the experts speak for us. Here’s an installment of the AirRam Review Roundup, for your reading pleasure:

    apttherapyApartment Therapy

    ApartmentTherapy.com’s rave review of the AirRam highlights all the keystone features of our lovely little vacuum, focusing on the energy-efficient lithium-ion battery and the absence of a cord. It also mentions that the AirRam’s perfect for getting the little things kids seem to leave everywhere.

    Wired

    This review from Wired shows that the AirRam can be fun for your children to use, which is good news for you. It also dissects the important comparison between a Dyson model and the superior AirRam.

    Slash Gear

    Slash Gear’s review of the AirRam says that it revolutionizes vacuuming, and we tend to agree. The focus here is on energy-efficiency (100 watts per use, rather than the industry average of 2000 watts) and the data bridge, which lets you keep your finger on the pulse of your energy use (both in the device and in your body; the calorie counter handles the latter).

    Popular Mechanics

    A Popular Mechanics blog pitted the Gtech AirRam against a New York City apartment with excellent results. This review highlights just how user-friendly the AirRam is, with power bars to show how much time you have before charging, the Data bridge again, and how easily it fits under your furniture.

    These are just the heaviest hitters of the multitudinous reviews out there already since the AirRam made a name for itself in America this year. User reviews abound, and there’s really nothing negative to say about the AirRam! We’ll keep rounding them up as they’re released, but that should give you something to ponder for the interim. Let the AirRam redesign the way you clean your home or apartment, and you’ll see what we’re all so excited about.

  • Vacuums in Pop Culture

    Last time we took a spin around the living room with our cordless vacuum cleaner the AirRam, we felt that he was smiling at us. Maybe we took a few spins than needed aroAirRam1und the room, but we think the AirRam is starting to develop his own personality here at Gtech.

    And if the AirRam is developing that pop cultural appeal, we have to wonder: where does the AirRam fit into the greater conversation of vacuums throughout pop culture history? Well, we’re still figuring it out. We’re still getting to know this dapper little guy! In the mean time, here’s a series of other vacuums from pop culture past:

    Famous Vacuums in Pop Culture

    kirby1

     

    Kirby, from “The Brave Little Toaster” (1987)

    He was grumpy, nervy, neurotic, and also endearing. He grew into a hero over the course of the film.

    kirby 2

     

    Kirby, from several Nintendo games

    Not a vacuum, you say? Apparently, you’ve forgotten that Kirby’s signature move was to    suck his opponents up (presumably into tidy bales) and absorb their powers. Also, he was undeniably adorable.

    nono

     

    Noo Noo, the incredibly bizarre vacuum friend of the Teletubbies

    He was their excitable compadre who periodically lost control and vacuumed up all of their possessions. Why? It was the Teletubbies; we have no idea.

     

    vacu2

     

    The people-sucking vacuums in 2010’s “Skyline”

    They took alien abduction to a new level, vacuuming literally thousands of people up at a stretch. But how are they on carpets?

    hocus pocus

     

    The vacuum serving as a witch’s broom in 1993’s “Hocus Pocus”

    Sarah Jessica Parker loses her broom, and a magical vacuum comes to her rescue. See the magic sparks flying out from the bottom? We wouldn’t trust it on our carpet.

     

    darkside

     

    The killer vacuum a child willed into existence on “Hush” from the 80s horror series “Tales from the Darkside”

    Just what it sounds like. It sucked… SOULS!

     

    These are just a couple sentences in a much longer conversation: vacuums across the pop culture encyclopedia. What will the legacy of our AirRam be at the end of the day? Only time will tell, but we’re certain it will be one of the good guy robots, not one of the bad guys. After all, this cordless vacuum cleaner is just way too good looking to be a villain.

  • Celebrate Christmas in July with our Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    santa1It’s the most wonderful time of year! America is a country that is certainly known for its festivity, and Christmas in July has become a cult phenomenon over the years.

    We love to give and to receive, because new stuff is always fun, isn’t it? This Christmas in July, why not make a gift of the ultimate cordless vacuum cleaner, and share the joys of a Gtech AirRam? There are, after all, many, many messes to be made in the summertime.

    The kids may be back from school, the beach sand may follow your feet inside, and you’ll probably host a party or two. Christmas in July extends beyond the gift of giving, however, it’s a miniature culture. Have a party, bust out that Santa Claus suit and make those red pants into cutoffs!

    Here’s our salute to the beloved pretend-real holiday, Christmas in July.

    santa2Christmas in July has multiple source points in history. The first documented use of the phrase was from Camp Keystone, an all-girls sleep-away camp in 1933, and the festivities included an actual tree, presents, and visit from Santa Claus, himself.

    In 1942, the Calvary Baptist Church in D.C. found a humanitarian niche with Christmas in July, rounding up gifts to be eventually distributed among various missions worldwide, to the underprivileged. The U.S. Post Office teamed up with military official to launch their own Christmas in July in 1944; it was designed to set up early gift mailing to men and women overseas. Unfortunately for them, our cordless vacuum cleaner wasn’t invented just yet.

    This Christmas in July, have a real celebration. Give the holiday more than just a name; live it! We recommend going all out, because if you’re going to do something, it’s worth doing right. Exchange gifts, have Santa pay a visit, decorate accordingly, and really try to feel it.

    The reason: why not? There’s an indescribable something to Christmas, and who says you can’t reach that feeling in July? Best of luck, and Merry Christmas in July!

    What are you doing to celebrate Christmas in July? Tell us about it on Facebook and Twitter. Keep reading up for more Gtech updates!

  • Keep the Sand at Bay with the Fearless Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    Cultural blending is when two or more cultures mix their ways of life.

    Think about pizza in America, or Japan’s penchant for dressing like Elvis. And it happens every summer right in your home. You’re one person on the beach, carefree and sunbathing, shirtless, unplugged and an entirely different person when you leave it at the coast and come home.

    However, the beach has a tendency to follow you there and the results are less than desirable; sand infiltrates everything. Months later you may lift a portion of carpet and see little grains of it in parts of your house you forgot existed!

    This summer, don’t let cultural blending between the swimming spot and the living room make a months-long mess! Let the Gtech AirRam keep ‘em separated. It’s ok; you don’t have to put your shirt back on if you don’t want to.

    cordless vacuum cleaner

    Gtech’s design makes it ideal for hard to reach places. It’s a cordless vacuum cleaner, so you’re free to travel wherever the sand traveled in your house. It’s lightweight, at a gentle 7.7 pounds, so you won’t have any problem getting it up on your steps to really dig in and clean.

    It’s versatile; let the arm down to reach way under your couch and other places that haven’t seen the light of day since you moved in. And the AirRam has the power to transform substances, something called “alchemy” back in the day (like way back).  The AirRam is a bagless vacuum cleaner; it takes granules of sand too small to track and transforms them into “tidy bales,” so you can toss the beach out when you’re done, in neat little bricks.

    Don’t let beach culture invade your home this summer! Outside is freedom and inside is order, and never the twain shall meet. Clean your house in style, grace, and comfort with the Gtech AirRam. Make sure to wash your feet first, though, or it’ll be a long process. And don’t worry; the beach is still out there waiting for you to get sandy and sun-soaked again when you’re ready!

  • The Evolution of Vacuuming: From Retro Colors to Cordless Technology

    At Gtech, we recognize that you don’t arrive at the zenith of a process without an appreciation of its roots.

    Creativity is the art of dissembling established concepts and rebuilding from their dismantled parts. Like a phoenix from the ashes, the AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner has flown high, to the top of the game.

    We’ve put together a retrospective of the many masks vacuuming has worn over the years. As a reference, and inspired by Judson Laipply of “Evolution of Dance” fame, we’ve included images of the dances that pin the appliances to their corners in time.

    Before we begin, just try not to be entertained by this talented man:

     [hana-code-insert name='evodance1' /]

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.49.28 PM

    1960's

    The Dance: The Twist!

    The Vacuum: With its bubbly appearance, the 1960s imagines an interesting future.

     

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.50.56 PM1970's

    The Dance: The Hustle! Disco is in full swing.

    The Vacuum: Leaving the era of pseudo-futuristic conformity, we enter the awkward boxy phase.

     

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.51.46 PM1980's

    The Dance: The running man! What were we running from?

    The Vacuum: Looks suspiciously like something from Star Wars. It’s one piece, not two, and the colors are atrocious.

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.52.23 PM1990's

    The Dance: It’s Hammertime! Or it was.

    The Vacuum: Central vacuum cleaners gained popularity, where the actual vacuum was a semi-permanent fixture. People were settling in with their vacuums.

     

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.54.32 PM2000's

    The Dance: The Dougie, as in teach me how to.

    The Vacuum: Some innovative styles emerge, like the bagless cylinder vacuum.

     

    AirRam

     

    2010's

    The Dance: The decade is young, and the dance is your palate to paint with. Invent something we’ve never seen!

    The Vacuum: The AirRam has arrived, and the evolution is complete.

    You can see the evolution of the vacuum has been an interesting one. Our past visions of the future diverged from where the future has actually taken us, but isn’t life always surprising that way? There’d be no story to tell if everything unfolded the way we’d planned it.

    What matters is that we’ve arrived, at long last. Next time you use your Gtech AirRam upright vacuum cleaner, think about the journey vacuuming has taken, and give it a little hug. When you fire it up, think of a dance that could define a generation, and go to work.

    What’s your move? Show us the dance move you’ve created that will change dance the way the AirRam has changed vacuuming on Facebook and Twitter. Keep up with our blog for more updates!
