I found out today that when you google crumb catchers looking for a photo that a good deal of unexpected things show up!!!
The crumb catcher I am referring to in this blog is the type seen in the base of the island shown in the photo above. It is a very neat add on to a central vacuum system. It is a little hatch you open with your toe and sweep your crumbs into it.
Now to add one to an existing central vacuum system can be a tad tricky. Or I should say your options for location are a bit more limited and extremely limited if you have a finished basement.
Luckily for us, our basement is a good deal of “not finished” so finding a location for my crumb catcher should not be too bad. “Should be” being the keywords of course. Watch out crumbs, the catcher is coming for you!
