Central Vacuum Cleaning

Using a vacuum to clean a vacuum.

When To Clean Your Central Vacuum

Central vacuum cleaning maintenance depends on how often you use the appliance. Generally, central vacuum canisters should be cleaned every three to six months, more often if used more frequently. You can tell your central vacuum needs to be cleaned when the suction is weakening. 

Can I Clean My Central Vacuum?

Absolutely! Regular central vacuum cleaning and maintenance does not require any fancy or professional equipment. Simply locate your central canister, detach the hose and empty your central canister of dust and debris. Also check your filter to make sure it is in good condition – if it’s especially dusty, give it a quick vacuum to clear any dust build up. Reassemble and your central vacuum should be back to sucking! 

When To Call In Help To Clean Your Central Vac

“Oops….” If you’ve lost some things to the central vac more than a couple times, you might be experiencing some serious blockage. Hey, don’t worry. It happens. When your central vacuum lines are clogged with accidents, that’s where we come in. 

Using our high powered vacuum truck, we use high pressure air in each of your vacuum ports to clear any blockages and ensure maximum air flow in your central vac system. We then empty the canister, clean the filter and motor, and dispose of all the debris. Don’t fret – we’ll also return any random treasures we may find!
