All Operators at Avis Power Vacuum Ltd. are apprenticed for minimum of six months prior to being sent out. We do not send our staff out to your home like other companies who have only had a two-week classroom oriented training session. All our staff are trained on the job for six months. You cannot provide a professional and safe service by learning this occupation from a book. By having an apprentice-training program we can guarantee that the service we provide is done right and will clean and restore the integrity of your ductwork and heating system.
In addition, our Power Vac Operators are certified to clean chimneys and remove soot, creosote and scale from your chimneys and oil/gas furnaces. After 30 years in the industry we possess a great amount of knowledge of how your heating system works and runs. Our level of expertise, matched with our company’s rigorous training standards, guarantees that your home will always be in good hands.
We use “Truck Mounted Power Vacuums Only”. Our units unlike the van style portables are cable of sucking soot and dust. The truck mount vacuum suction capacity is 16000.00 cubic feet a minute compared to a standard van portable which maximizes at about 2500.00 cfm. The difference in suction is like comparing oranges to apples.
As well portables do not have the capacity to suck Soot, meaning they do not clean out the combustion chamber of your furnace which we do. Cleaning the combustion chamber is one of the most important processes of the Complete Package Cleaning. If Soot is left in your furnace for too long it will rot your furnace and put you and your family in danger from carbon monoxide poisoning.
