Ceiling Vacuum

Ceiling Vacuum by Roof Insulation Western Cape offers a roof vacuuming service. Or, as some people call it, a Ceiling vacuum. The biggest problem with Ceiling dust is that conventional vacuum machines can’t handle the fine dust. Therefore our machine is a massive machine that stands outside the home; the pipe is brought through the Roof.

The Importance of Ceiling Vacuum

  • Removal of hazardous dust.
  • We are removing old leaves to remove potential fire hazards.
  • It makes for a clean, healthy home.
  • It will reduce the impact of dust allergies.
  • We also remove old cellulose fibre insulation (Eco-insulation and Thermguard) and fibreglass insulation.

One of the biggest problems in many Cape roofs is the wind blows all types of dust, including leaves, sticks etc., into the roof space. It is critical to remember that old dry leaves can ignite very easily and destroy your home as it goes up in flames.

So even if you don’t have allergies, it is advisable to have a dusty roof cleaned. Over the years, many Cape homes over 70 years have had substantial amounts of dust collected in the roof space. Therefore a clean ceiling means a healthy home.

We have removed more than 1,3 tons of dust in a Roof Vacuum of the roof space in some homes. Typically homes built before 1970 will have lead poisoning in the dust and asbestos fibres. Old dried leaves, as well as old bird and rat nests,  are another potential problem.

Leaves In The Roof Are A fire Hazard.

Leaves can be a massive fire hazard in the home as most modern houses have Down Light. Therefore old dry leaves are highly combustible if they come in contact with 40 watts or 50-watt Downlights. These lights can reach temperatures of up to 270 deg C to 350 deg C. The downlight cones are a fire hazard.
