Regular inspections

As you probably know from previous vacuums or ductwork in your home, things get clogged. It happens and it's annoying, but it's normal and preventable. Check the central vacuum hose after use to make sure everything looks clear. You should soon be able to see if dirt or debris is clogging the hose. If this happens, clean it out as much as possible.

 

Tips on Maintaining Your Central Vacuum Hose

 

Removing the clog

If you do find a clog, the best way to remove it is as follows. Place your hand over the opening in the hose and turn the vacuum on. Make sure to keep your hand on it for a few seconds. The pressure you cause will help the vacuum suck out the dirt and/or debris that is causing the clog. Be sure to do this at each port to make sure you get all the clogs.

 

Covering the vacuum hose

To help prevent the central vacuum hoses from fraying, cover them with a sock or sleeve. Since hoses are often dragged across the floor, the sock or sleeve acts as an external shield. In addition to protecting your central vacuum hose, this also helps to protect any surfaces you drag the hose across in the opposite way. For example, if the hose brushes or lands on furniture, a sleeve or sock will help prevent damage to that furniture.

Do not leave the hose on the floor

Always pick up your central vacuum hoses after you've used them. This may seem like common sense, but it's important to remember. You don't want anyone tripping over the hose and hurting themselves or poking a hole in the hose by stepping on it.
A good practice is to carefully coil each hose and hang it from a hook mounted on the wall. A maximum of four to five coils is recommended. It is also important not to store the hose while it is still attached to any vacuum wand or fitting. Doing so may result in stress fractures at the bend of the hose. Be sure to remove the fittings when you are finished using them.


Cleaning the hose

Yes, you need to clean the tools used to clean your home. The hose needs to be cleaned regularly. Also, if you find that it is not as powerful as it used to be, your hose may just need to be cleaned.
To clean the hose, wipe it with a cleaning cloth while the central vacuum is on. Then repeat this at each outlet to ensure the entire system is cleaned. Cleaning cloths should be available through your local central vacuum dealer.
Even if you don't see any clogs, it's a good habit to clean the hoses. Cleaning them regularly will help prevent dirt and debris buildup.
