About Us

Since 2005, Midwest Vacuums has been owned and operated by Sarah DeGondea. In the beginning, the business started out as a central vacuum only business which was named “Plugged In”.  Since that point in time, we have acquired vacuum stores and grew the business to include upright & canister vacuums,  cleaning essentials and then later changed the name to “Midwest Vacuums”.

As talented as Sarah is, she couldn’t go it alone without the help from her tenured retail team; Jim is responsible for anything central vacuum related, along with inside sales & repairs, Meg is responsible for the Lee’s Summit location and Joe is responsible for the Waldo location along with Don who handles all the service for your vacuums.

Ironically enough we want earn your business, but we also realize that there are many places to purchase vacuums today both locally in the Kansas City market and nationally on-line. Sadly most of those same places don’t repair vacuums, nor do they carry the parts. This is why we stock over 100 different types of replacement belts and bags for vacuums. We also service the most popular bag-less vacuums that you see on TV.

The vacuum brands and cleaning essentials that we carry in our stores you won’t find in typical department stores, these products are usually exclusive to speciality stores like ours. When you are ready, stop into one of our stores and let one of our associates explain and then demonstrate the difference between brands or products you are concerned about. Please remember this is what we do 100% of the time and when you are ready to make that purchase keep in mind:

  • We price match guarantee

  • We provide free loaner vacuums

  • We extend the manufacturer’s warranty

  • We offer free carpet cleaner rentals 

“Once you enter our stores you will realize we are more than just a vacuum store. We have all the cleaning tools to get your home clean. When you are ready to buy that new vacuum trust us, we have helped thousands of people just like you”.
