Aerus is a manufacturer and distributor of Healthy Home Products in over 500 locations in North America. From state-of-the-art floor care systems to air and water purification systems, Aerus creates clean and healthy indoor environments for over 50 million businesses and homes in the U.S. and Canada.

Originally established in 1924 as Electrolux, we began our journey into Healthy Home and Business Products with the first tank vacuum model, introduced by Gustaf Sahlin. This tank (also known as a canister) design became an overnight sensation and remains a standard of excellence for floor care products.

The popular Electrolux vacuum cleaner, Model XXX, was created in 1937 and after selling nearly 14 million units, was retired in 1954 and later recognized by the Smithsonian Institute as a top 100 U.S. product. In 2000, we transitioned from our floor care roots with Electrolux to offer a full line of innovative Healthy Home and Business Products (including air and water purification systems) as Aerus.

Along with top-quality products, we are also proud to bring you superior customer service. Our Franchise Owners and Sales Representatives are committed to providing the best service - not just in our industry, but across every industry. We want our Aerus products to be synonymous with guaranteed customer satisfaction and the kind of customer service that makes you an Aerus customer for life.

As America's Healthy Home and Business Experts for over 90 years, Aerus strives to develop innovative products with forward-thinking technology for millions of homes and businesses across North America.
