Clean out debris from your central vacuum system

Clean out debris from your central vacuum system

Many newer homes use a central vacuum system. These systems usually have the central unit installed in the garage. When you vacuum with the hose with the system, the debris has to go back to the central unit. Many people forget that they have to empty that central vacuum unit to ensure it works properly, and there is enough rough for it to temporarily store the debris.
