Was wondering if any of the commercial wood fired oven bakers out there have any experience of cleaning out an oven with a vacuum cleaner as opposed to a brush.
I have worked since 2007 with an Alan Scott 5x7 oven and up to now have always cleaned out with scrapper/brush and mop.
I have just been told by doctor I may have Chronis Bronchitis and need to find less 'dusty' ways of working , hence am looking around at options that might help my daily routine.
I am also looking into dust extractors if anyone has any experience with them they could share that would also be very helpful.
Guess my concern with the vacuum method of cleaning oven is to do with possible dislodging of bricks on hearth. All the bricks are laid 'dry' so am concerned about vacuum 'suck' if that makes sense.
Anyway, if anyone has any thoughts I'd appreciate hearing them. I intend to bake on for some years yet, am 62 now so still young !
Thanks for your help
