Create a Quieter Home with the ROWENTA Silence Force Extreme Vacuum #Giveaway {CAN}

Have you experienced any hearing loss?  There are times when I think that my ears are not living up to their full potential.  All to often I find myself asking my husband to turn up the TV or asking people to repeat themselves — especially if there is added background noise from a radio, kids or household machines.

May is National Speech and Hearing Awareness Month in Canada.

Did you know:

  • that 1-in-4 Canadians report having some hearing loss?
  • that everyday household noises can contribute to hearing loss?
  • a recent study claims some of the biggest appliance offenders in the home are vacuum cleaners?

So how does YOUR vacuum cleaner stack up?

As you can see from the following graphic, most vacuum cleaners aren’t that far away from the same noise decibel as lawn mowers. Audiologists recommend wearing ear protectors when exposed to noise 80 decibels or higher.

Noisy Vacuum

You can also see from the graphic, that there are some vacuums whose decibels are near that of people talking or regular TV noise.  Since the early 1970’s, Rowenta has stood on the cutting edge of innovation.  Because of that, they have introduced the ROWENTA Silence Force Extreme vacuum has only 65 dB(A) – which is significantly quieter than the average vacuum cleaner.

This full sized bagged The Silence Force™ Extreme canister vacuum equals or surpasses the top competitive brands in dust pick up while providing enhanced noise reduction levels.

  • This Full-sized bagged canister vacuum features a 5 L dirt capacity and is ultra-ergonomic in design.

  • One of the world’s most silent vacuums at 65 dB(A) – significantly quieter than the average vacuum

  • Accessories included: Multi Floor Head, Maxi Turbo Brush, exclusive Delta Hard Floor Brush, integrated Easy brush dusting tool, Sofa Brush and Telescopic Crevice Tool (with on-board storage) for added convenience and versatility.

Changing your vacuum out for a quiet model like the ROWENTA Silence Force Extreme, is not the only way to reduce un-needed noise in your home.  Here are some tips to take into consideration:

  1. Laurie P says:

    My current vacuum stopped working recently, does that count as reducing noise?? I’ve got a toddler running around, unless she’s sleeping I don’t think I can reduce the noise. Remember silence IS suspicious hahahaha.

  2. Suzanne G says:

    One way I can reduce unneeded noise in my house is turning my radio down as I have bad habit of turning it up so I can hear it wherever I am but it does get on my nerves eventually.

  3. We thankfully don’t have a lot of noise in our home, only when we listen to music so maybe I should use headphones more to reduce noise

  4. Susan T. says:

    We all use headphones when watching TV or on the computer. It really helps keep things quiet!

  5. Jeannie says:

    One way we can reduce unneeded noise would be to turn off the TV and get the kids outside!!

  6. My husband listens to load machinery all day long, everyday! A quiet vacuum would be such a blessing at the end of the day.

  7. Lynda Cook says:

    I have to say my home is pretty quiet now, since I am the only one home all day long nothing is on or running, just my computer

  8. Kirsten says:

    I am really sensitive to too much noise. I keep the volume on the radio, tv, and movies at a low volume. If it;s just me at home, there’s no background noise.

    This quiet vacuum would be a huge blessing to us! My daughter is deathly afraid of our current one. I have to vacuum when she is not home or she spends the whole time crying and being very upset.

  9. Wendy Arnott says:

    My house is quiet, but work is another story. Some staff feel the need to have the radio going on one side of the room, the RCMP scanner turned up and we have our own crew coming in on their radio. I used to turn the TV on just for the noise but since working in this environment, that isn’t happening anymore. A quieter vacuum would reduce the procrastination I put into not vacuuming as mine is a clumsy upright.

  10. While its not great for his long-term hearing, I make my son wear headphones when he plays his noisy video games. Too much noise really gets on my nerves.

    giving the kids headphones to wear, we have a problem with noisy neighbours so adding more insulation to the walls helps or instead of paint on the wall brick tiles

  13. Judy C (Judy Cowan) says:

    We try to minimize noise as much as we can by keeping tv’s & radios set at a reasonable level, we do have carpet throughout the house and if there is a lot of noise outside we will close the window. A quiet vacuum would be nice :)

  14. stacey dempsey says:

    I dont really know how to cut back the noise much more than now. The kids use headphones often and when they have friends over they try and keep things to a manageable level but I think when you have kids you have noise lol . I would love a new vacuum though. I gave my good one to my oldest son who recently moved and the one I am using is ancient and really noisy, I have to vacuum during certain hours so as not to disturb anyone

  15. Juliee Fitze says:

    Only way to reduce noise in my house would be to turn the TV down or shut it right off.

  17. Audrey Skinner says:

  18. Darlene Schuller says:

  33. Cheryl B. says:

    We added some sound deadening to the walls…it has really helped.

  34. AndreaH says:

  35. sharon boyle says:

    My husband turns on the radio then goes off to watch TV…..I like perfect silence so I turn it off immediately

  36. I live on a busy street and there’s a fire station and a hospital nearby so closing the windows is a big way I reduce noise.

  37. Linda B says:

    I will reduce noise in my home by having the tv off all through the day until my husband comes home and watches it. I keep busy on my computer during the day or go outside to do things or to sit and enjoy the nice weather. This sweeper would also be great as the one I have now is quite noisy and the ROWENTA would be great to have.

  38. Piroska says:

    One way we will reduce noise is by turning the TV off when no-one is watching it. Ridiculous, right?

    when a single family member is watching tv they use head phones. It is amazing the difference it make!

  290. I’ll wear headphone while listening to my music.

  291. Leah Ewasick says:

    Rowenta is absolutely right! My biggest offender is my bulky, cumbersome vacuum! Even my mild mannered dogs take offence to it resulting in more noise from their barking! Thanks for the opportunity to win a much appreciated appliance.

  292. Angela L. says:

    I have to work on not raising my voice when my daughter raises hers!

  293. We don’t have a vacuum, but i’m using a shop vac to clean the house which would probably reduce the noise level!! I have a daughter with another child on the way, and when there’s complete silence It usually means she’s getting into something she isn’t supposed too! haha

  300. Rebecca says:

    With two small children it’s hard to keep the house noise quiet. Keeping the tv turned off or down helps. If we won this amazingly quiet vacuum it would help our family significantly! My poor baby girl (8 months old), cries every time our vacuum is turned on and our silly 4 yr old insists on yelling in hopes of being heard, lol. This vacuum would honeatly be a little bit of sanity for our whole family 😉

  301. terri fendley says:

    We can reduce noise in our home by lowering or keeping the television of and entertaining and cooking outside on the bbq

  303. Right now we’re pretty quiet, but in a few months I’ll be crying to find a way to reduce noise – baby on the way! I don’t suppose that I can just make the baby be quiet? 😛

  304. I love silence! haha When I’m home alone there are no TVs on, no radios, my phone and tablet are always on silent. I’m 37 weeks pregnant though so I’m about to have some noise that I can’t control soon enough. 😛

  305. Elizabeth Carson says:

    Hi there! Fist off, a huge thank you for offering this awesome giveaway!
    Personally, I have very sensitive ears. I can’t see fireworks, air shows, concerts or be anywhere loud without a pair of ear plugs. It’s so bad that someone else in the house always has to do the vacuuming or cut the grass while I’m not home. I feel terrible, but I end up in tears if I do these things myself. I would love, and I’m sure the other people in my house would love, a quiet vacuum so that I can do that chore – it sounds crazy but I really would like to be able to do it.
    Thanks again!

  306. Just brought a new baby home. Our old vacuum is broken
    And would love to use a new quiet one in our apartment especially
    When the baby will be on the floor a lot soon, crawling.

  307. I would try to keep volume on electronics turned down, or better yet…turn them off and get outdoors!!!

  323. Patrick Miller says:

    Having a quiet vacuum would help a lot!

  324. Christy Martin says:

    I don’t think there is more of an annoying noise than vacuums – not so bad when you are the one using, but when your not…ugg. I like most noise, in fact I listen to the talk radio all day and music in the kitchen. Our problem right now is external noise, which entails someone building a wood deck and someone else building a concrete one and someone else having their unilock replaced. It never ends! Starts at exactly 8am and the wood deck people stop at about 9:30pm. I am very happy to be going away this weekend!

  325. I will reduce noise by getting a push mower, on the plus side I will get great exercise!

  326. Hal jenner says:

  328. Lori L. - @Miss_Elles says:

    With 5 kids in the house including 2 toddlers who love to SCREEEEEECH, I wouldn’t be surprised if the noise levels in this house were off the charts! To reduce the noise I guess I could duct tape their mouths but I don’t think that would be very nice of me so I will just continue to encourage them to use their “indoor voices” – yeahhh, because that works SO well!

  329. Stephanie LaPlante says:

    I would reduce unneeded noise by getting central air opposed to air conditioning.

  330. Kelly Boucher says:

    This vacuum would be amazing. My husband works nights, with this vacuum I wouldn’t have to wait until late at night to do most of my noisy cleaning. I could get it down in the day time and be able to relax and enjoy my evenings with my family.

  331. I will buy some good noise-cancelling headphones to reduce to noise!

  332. I need a vacuum that actually works. And doesnt fall over , whacking me every time I use it

  333. Kassie Brown says:

    To cut down on noise, I should let my husband take the family grocery shopping once in a while and stay home alone.

  334. Lowering the volume on the TV!

  335. Jules A. says:

    I like to keep the TV volume low, but I’m going to be more diligent about making sure my kids do too (they tend to crank the volume higher than I’d like)

  340. TrippyCusp93 says:

    My husband and I live in an apartment complex and most of our neighbors are fine, but one of our neighbors is NOISY. These are one bedroom apartments and they have 2-4 children staying there at any given time. We reduce our noise by keeping our television, computers, and other electrical equipment down to a reasonable volume and we always stay aware of the volume of our voices. We’ve filed many noise complaints on our noisy neighbors, so we certainly don’t want to be noisy ourselves. The pictures on the walls rattle and the floor shakes and vibrates…and the kids are constantly yelling and screaming…so are the adults. It’s a pain!

  341. David Pierce says:

    My current vacuum is so noisy, I don’t like to use it very often. I would love to have a quiet vacuum that cleans well.

  342. I’ve considered putting duct-tape on my kids’ mouths… does that count? LOL I can’t always eliminate the noise with 3 kids …. but when I’ve had enough I escape for a few hours :)

    i really like quiet – i try to only have one noisy appliance on at a time – my dishwasher is loud, so i usually wont have the music on loud at the same time

  365. Janet Miller says:

    The biggest way we have reduced the noise in our house is to make our son use headphones when playing his video game!

  366. Meagan P says:

    Putting the volume on low on all of my kids toys.

  367. We replaced our noisy old ceiling fans with shiny new quiet ones.

  368. Janet Sian says:

  369. Our family works to reduce our noise/environmental noise in small ways each week.
    Personally I have experienced a hearing loss and I totally understand the asking people
