Roof Vacuum

Quality Roof Vacuum in Brisbane & Experiences & Reliable Roof Vacuum

We all know that dust causes problems such as sneezing, asthma, and allergy symptoms. We work hard to keep our houses clean of dust, regularly sweeping and vacuuming our floors. But, there is a hidden source of much of the dust in our homes, and it is right above our heads.

Our ceiling cavities are a forgotten part of our home. No ceiling is dustproof, so there can be decades of dust, droppings from birds, rodents and other animals and even snakeskins, forming a wonderful dusty concoction in our roof.

If you have down lights, ceiling fans, air-conditioning ducts or other access areas into your home, this ceiling dust can drift into your living area, triggering health problems. Older homes with VJ walls are particularly prone to ceiling dust falling down the walls and through the cracks into the home.

But dust is not just a health hazard. Build-up of dust around down lights and wiring can also trigger electrical fires if not removed.

Experienced & Reliable Roof Vacuum

What can you do about it? We recommend our roof vacuum service to remove this dust and to create clean ceilings.

Our experienced serviceman uses an industrial vacuum cleaner to complete a ceiling vacuum. They lift the iron and tiles to access the roof and complete the roof vacuum to ensure no dust goes into the house. The roof vacuum stays on a trailer outside as a long pipe is taken into the roof space.

Vacuum for Dust Removal Pre-Installation

If you are thinking of having insulation installed, you may want to have your roof vacuum done before your insulation is installed. Vacuuming your roof before installing insulation means you are starting with a clean ceiling and probably reduces your overall fire risk.

We can perform a ceiling vacuum of your roof cavity before insulating it for you, leaving you with a cleaner, healthier roof.

Our powerful roof vacuum can also be used for gutter cleaning, and to safely and cleanly remove old insulation products including cellulose fibre, and poly balls. And if you are looking for installation of new insulation, the Possum Man can help you with that as well.

Why do you recommend a roof cleaning?

Insulation should be laid on a clean roof to reduce the risk of dust entering the house (through ceiling vents and down lights). Cleaning also reduces the risk of allergic reactions to dust.

What type of ceiling vacuum do you use?

We use a powerful commercial grade vacuum that has HEPA filters to remove even the really fine dust.

How do you remove cellulose fibre?

We use a specially designed commercial vacuum that has the ability to remove a large volume of heavy particles; this means it is removed safely unlike shovelling which could damage electrical wires. We have developed ways to handle the large volume of material to be removed. We recommend you take advantage of our specialist experience.

Can you vacuum inside an Asbestos roof?

Yes, we can vacuum the ceiling under a super 6 roof but not after it has been replaced. If vacuuming under a super 6 roof we also have to take the vacuum hose into the ceiling through the internal manhole as we cannot lift the roof.

Can you do a roof cleaning when there is insulation in the roof?

Not usually. To be able to vacuum a roof effectively the old insulation needs to be removed which is why we recommend vacuuming when you are getting new insulation.

How do servicemen get into the roof?

When we vacuum ceilings we usually access the roof space by temporarily removing the iron sheets or tiles to take the vacuum hose into the roof. This also ensures minimal dust goes into the house.

Can you vacuum the raked or flat verandah section of the roof?

Yes but when the roof space is narrow we would have to remove the roof sheeting to access the cavity. This would need to be taken into consideration in the pricing for the work.

How long will the roof cleaning take?

For our serviceman to complete a ceiling vacuum of an average house of 120 square meters takes about four to five hours work if there is ready access to the roof space.
