A+ Discount Vacuums & Janitorial Supplies is an authorized dealer for top-rated vacuum manufacturers including Miele, Bissell, Simplicity, Sebo, Lindhaus, Electrolux/Eureka, Hoover and Royal, and they service all makes and models. They have bags and belts for all makes and models. If your vacuum is worth saving, A+ Discount Vacuums has everything necessary to get your machine back on the job! And they offer free estimates.


A+ Discount Vacuums & Janitorial Supplies is family owned and operated by husband and wife team Melissa and Tom Burkhiser. They have over 20 years combined experience, which offers you, the customer, honest advise and a personal one-on-one touch that you do not get in big box stores. “I always tell people to please come in and talk to us before buying a bagless vacuum,” says Melissa. Her reason – it is a fact that the leading bagless vacuum has an emission rate 21 times greater than the leading filter- bag system. If you want the best vacuum on the market for your home environment, then ask Melissa and Tom about the Miele. Barron’s magazine rated the Miele as the number one vacuum (of all canisters and uprights) for allergy sufferers and pet owners because of its advanced, filterbag system that safely traps 99.9 percent of lung-damaging particles.

Buy a Vacuum That Will Last!


Are you a canister person or an upright fan? A+ Discount Vacuums & Janitorial Supplies has a great selection of the top-rated vacuums on the market, with a cleaning machine for everyone. I have always been a canister fan since childhood when my grandfather and uncle were door-to-door Electrolux salesmen, but after checking out the upright vacuums by Simplicity and the convenient tool storage with a tool to reach every nook and cranny, I could easily switch sides. And it’s a good time to buy one right now too, because A+ Discount Vacuums has some great summer deals!

Cleaning Products the Pros Use


If you are looking for a way to safely and thoroughly clean every surface of your home and you also value your hard-earned money, then stop by and check out how much you can save by shopping at A+ Discount Vacuums & Janitorial Supplies. From chewing gum remover, to cleaners and odor neutralizers, you will find a greatsmelling selection. Nilium is an odor neutralizer that completely eliminates odors, costing only $9.50 for a quart which will last a very long time because the product is concentrated and it only takes one teaspoon to make up a spray bottle. There are some amazing scents including Citrus, Red Clover, Spring Mint, Coconut-Lime, and Melissa’s favorite, Soft Linen.


Mopping the whole house is easy when you only need one product to do every type of floor from hardwood to laminate, from ceramic to marble – that’s right, Daily Mop is super concentrated and you simply add 1 ounce to a gallon of water for the perfect cleaning solution that leaves no sticky residue, no streaks, only clean floors!

It only takes a tiny shake of Nilofresh carpet deodorizer to make your house smell great and it’s a really good deal at $4.99 for a 14-oz. size; plus, it’s a much better choice for your vacuum than leading powder carpet deodorizers because it’s made from treated corn cob which is heavier than powder and will not ruin your vacuum cleaner’s motor. Pet urine is just nasty, but the Bio-Active Eliminator actually becomes live bacteria when mixed with water and it will completely eliminate urine – no stains, no smell!


Hard water spots will be gone with a swipe using the Porcelain Tile Metal Cleaner, which safely removes lime scale form chrome, stainless steel and glass. You mix it one part cleaner to three parts water and it’s only $6.99 for a quart.
