Well, I was thinking your house might be built on an old Indian burial site but
I suppose that's too far fetched.

The static charge often builds up to several thousand volts and can snap an arc to ground in excess of one inch. I think that's what is taking place here since the mask and hose may not be sufficiently grounded to prevent that charge buildup. If the well grounded sheet wasn't present (providing a large surface area contact), the charge likely would never be noticed. Prevention would mean either running a ground strap to the hose or else keeping a hand on the hose while it's handling the air flow.
