Central Vacuum Cleaning

Home/Central Vacuum Cleaning

Project Description

water filterWhy have professional central vacuum cleaning performed in your home or property? Your central vacuum may not be working as efficiently as it should, and cleaning the system is a difficult job. Specialised tools and equipment are necessary to reach deep into the system’s piping and canister areas to remove years of buildup.

Central vacuum systems typically contain more dust and allergens than any other area of the home. A complete system cleaning will ensure optimal performance; reduce allergens in the home, and provide superior life expectancy for your central vacuum unit.

System design

The main purpose of a central vacuum system is to remove dust, debris, and allergens from the home, however the materials collected have a long way to travel before reaching the end canister. Many central vacuum systems are installed after a home is built; this leads to more obstacles when installing the system through the walls and floors of your home, creating a need for extra bends in the piping and additional overall length.

Maintenance and Cleaning

Central vacuum systems tend to be overlooked when considering annual maintenance or cleaning. Emptying the canister is a great first step towards keeping your system clean and running efficiently, however there are many other areas that also need attention:

  • Filter – The central vacuum unit has its own filtration system to help contain the material that has been sucked up; this filter needs to stay clean to ensure proper efficiency of the vacuum. A dirty filter will cause a restriction in airflow, making the vacuum work harder to maintain proper suction, and can be a major factor to poor overall suction.
  • Motor and interior – Your vacuum’s filter isn’t perfect. Some finer dust and debris can pass through the filter or get between cracks and gaps and accumulate inside the motor and other interior areas of the vacuum unit. This buildup creates extra friction in the motor, causing it to work harder, operate less efficiently, and reduces the life expectancy of the unit.
  • Piping – Bends in the piping create areas where materials can collect, restricting suction and trap excess dust and allergens. Buildup of material will lead to improper suction and poor overall performance. In some cases, this buildup can create foul odours or spread allergens throughout the home.

Our technicians set up our high capacity vacuum within the canister section of the central vacuum and apply high pressure, compressed air through each access point throughout the home. This combination of air pressure and suction will safely and effectively dislodge any blockage or material built up inside the central vacuum piping. Each central vacuum unit then has the waste canister emptied, its filter inspected, and the motor section blown out to ensure no dust or debris will obstruct or impede the motor operation. We also offer an optional complete system disinfectant to ensure no allergens or bacteria remain trapped in the system.
