NEVER use a household or shop vacuum for cleaning out your
fireplace. Hot embers can stay alive for days, hidden under ash, which acts like
an insulator. A hot ember sitting inside a paper filter bag, surrounded by
flammable household debris, is a recipe for disaster. This situation can start a
delayed fire, when you’re asleep or not at home. Very dangerous!
The other problem is that ash is made of extremely fine particles
that a normal filter will not capture. The exhaust port of the vacuum will spew
the smallest particles throughout your house, and if you don’t notice your house
smelling like an ashtray, you will notice when it comes time to dust, and
there’s a fine gray dust coating all your furniture.
The Cheetah II AshVac was designed for safe, clean and convenient
cleaning of ash out of fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves and bio fuel (corn
and wheat) stoves. It has been the best selling ash vacuum for more than 20
Every component of the Cheetah II AshVac is designed for safety.
The 3-gallon fireproof canister is made of rolled steel. The 5-foot hose and
nozzle are made of metal. The primary filter is fire-resistant up to 1,000°F.
Other components are fire-resistant thermoplastic. If the hose gets too hot to
hold with bare hands, stop vacuuming because the ashes are too hot. Gloves are
not the answer. Instead, wait until the ashes cool more, and/or be sure to rest
the nozzle on the firebrick, or base, so you are removing fine ash from the
bottom of the pile – not large chunks of hot embers.
The patented filtration system is designed for the cleanest
possible removal of ash. The dual filters are specially engineered to capture
the finest ash particles to keep your house clean and smelling fresh. You can
even clean the filters without opening the canister so no ash has a chance to
escape. All you do it jiggle the agitator rod on the lid to knock ash off the
filters. The canister stays closed.
The Love-Less Cheetah II Ash Vacuum is available a variety of colors to suit your home. This item ships for free, so order online today or call 1-866-972-8227 to speak to a live representative.
WHAT YOU CAN SAFELY VACUUM
What we refer as a “firefly” is unlikely to burn a hole in our filter. A firefly is like the tiny spark that floats up out of a fireplace, and it glows for no longer than a firefly – about a second before it burns out.
What we refer to as a “cigarette” could potentially burn a hole in our filter. It is a piece/chunk of partially burned fuel (wood or pellet) that has a red hot glowing ember attached, much like a cigarette. These carry enough fuel with them, that, if lodged against the filter, with swirling air, could heat up and damage the filter.
If you need to clean a pellet stove while the contents in the pot still seem warm, the best way to ensure your AshVac only picks up only ash, and not large hot embers, is to rest the nozzle at an angle directly on the bottom of the pot, and then move it around so it sucks fine ash particles from the bottom of the pile. The narrow opening between the pot floor and nozzle allows ash through, but blocks larger material, including hot embers that are large enough to be problematic.
