The Bad Ash

Now is the time of year where running your fireplace or pellet stove quite often, and with frequent use comes ash and other messes that your vacuum or shopvac should not be cleaning up.  Using a standard shop vac and sucking up an accidental hot coal can leave you with an even bigger disaster on your hands.  The Bad Ash is an excellent solution when you want to clean out your fireplace or pellet stove.  The HEPA Filtration system means that the ash and fireplace particles will not enter the units motor, or the air you breathe.  With an air tight locking system, flame retardant filter, metal based hose and steel container the Bad Ash is far superior to anything a standard shop vac could offer.  Get your Bad Ash today for only $159.99, to order call us today 570-629-4065 or visit for more information

Pine Needles

If you had a Natural Tree this Holiday Season it’s about that time when you start un-decorating and unraveling what’s on the tree.  We all know what comes next – PINE NEEDLES everywhere!!!!  Here’s a quick tip from Banks’ Vacuum that could save your vacuums’ life a bit.  Instead of running to quickly grab the vacuum to suck up all those needles, grab a broom.  With the broom sweep them all into a pile then pick them up with a dust pan.  The remaining needles you can then clean up with the vacuum.  If you’ve already had that “Oops” moment then no worries, bring it down and we can take a look at your vacuum cleaner and give it a nice fresh tune.  Visit our website at: to find out more.
