I couldn't mention my favorite blog posts of 2009 without mentioning the posts written by our own Brad Prince. Brad has been installing central vacuum systems and intercoms for over 25 years and now offers phone tech support to our customers. Brad wrote one of my favorite fun posts this year about the RhinoVac. Read it Here
Today Brad sent me another post...he thought our customers would be interested in some clean-up tips for their after Christmas chores....
Whew, It's over. Not that Christmas this year was a negative...it's just... well, you know. Come to think of it, it's not quite over. There's the clean up. And I want to remind everyone to use caution while using your central vac systems. Typically during the next two months, we get service call requests for unclogs. While performing these service calls the clean out yields clogs of pine needles mixed with paper and otheritems. To save you the cost and frustration of a clog I'd like to suggest a few pointers:
1. Pick up any twigs or sticks left over from the tree.
2. Pieces of paper mixed with pine needles should be avoided by your vac nozzle.
3. While using your power head, move slowly to ease the amount of pine needlesbeing picked up, putting fewer in the air flow.
4. After the big clean up, check your secondary filter, inverted filter bag,or paper bag.and clean or replace.
Happy New Year!
