Happy New Year!

It has been so beautiful here in central California!
It is hard to believe it is January!

Your Christmas tree and your vacuum are not friends.
We see many vacuums in for repair this time of year.
Many of the needed repairs are due to vacuuming up the needles of the tree.
Remember to check to see if your vacuum has gotten clogged with pine needles so it does not overheat and quit all together.
We repair all makes and models of machines so if you need expert help we are avaliable.
