About Us

Knowing the superior performance of Nilfisk professional and institutional cleaning equipment, Andy and Tricia Hawcroft founded TVD (The Vacuum Doctor) in 1999. Andy and Tricia, from Yorkshire and Lancashire respectively came to Australia in 1988. After extensive travelling they settled in Perth in 1990 and Andy began working for Nilfisk as the Territory Service Manager until the passion of owning his own business resulted in Andy's faith in his knowledge to begin what's now Perth's TVD

Andy has grown from simply being a nuts and bolts type of guy, into building and running TVD (The Vacuum Doctor) in a brick and mortar world, and has now taken it to an expanding E-commerce site with the aim of becoming the leading Nilfisk based content website WORLDWIDE!!


Behind each man is the amazing woman who holds everything together! Tricia spends her days supporting Andy both in the office and sending out the goods ordered on-line to customers, as well as taking care of their family dynamic.
