Central vacuuming???

You may have heard of central heating before, but have you ever hear of central vacuuming?
Well, me neither...

I must admit I was quite sceptical, when, having informed the housing department that I had found a vacuum cleaning pipe in my wash room but no actual machine, they told me to look for a hole in the wall into which to insert it. I was seriously thinking there was something missing in translation there, but nevertheless, I decided to humor them and look for this "hole-in-wall" (like who would actually put a hole in the wall...). I searched everywhere, and was beginning to think they may have been pulling my leg, when, lo-and-behold, behind the TV I found a socket in which the end of the vacuum cleaner pipe fits! hahaha! who would have thought. The on/off switch is on the head of the pipe, which as you may guess, is quite a long pipe that can get around the whole house. You learn something new every day!
