Air Duct Cleaning requires specific equipment to achieve clean & sanitized ducts. Acceptable results in many cases means passing certified air quality testing results. So how do you do this? What is the best equipment to complete this?
Well, some duct cleaning equipment companies tells you THEIR machine is the only way to clean ducts properly. They demean any other equipment manufacturers, telling you their machines can be the only way forward and that you must invest tens of thousand of dollars to achieve the industry standard results.
Poor indoor air quality leads to chronic diseases
Don’t have the time to go through the article? Listen to this, in only 8 minutes 28 seconds you can have complete knowledge about air duct cleaning equipment.
What is the proper equipment to use for good air duct cleaning?
FACT ONE: there are TWO different way to clean ducts:
Negative Air –
You must breach the trunk line duct by cutting an 8-inch hole and attaching a vacuum system that is from an 8-inch flex hose.
Then from each Register duct opening (pushes air flow to you) & Return (pulls air flow from you) they push or blow debris towards the 8-inch opening to capture the dust particles at the vacuum source. This is the basic concept.
Contact Method –
You attach a vacuum source to the Register & Return openings and pull the debris towards you capturing the dust particles. This is the basic concept.
FACT TWO: Both methods work!
Let me say that again, both of these types of duct cleaning systems will do the job meaning acceptable results by passing certified air quality testing. So why is there so much confusion around this subject? Well, I will tell you why.
Many Negative Air Duct Cleaning System companies will tell you that Contact Method duct cleaning equipment companies ignore the truck lines. Maybe some do but we do not. Trunk Lines is the main source of air flow in any force-air system it requires inspection to see if there is attached debris our bacteria.
The maximum air flow is at the trunk line meaning the most powerful part of any forced-air system is the motor or fan that pushes air to all the registers (pushes air flow to you).
In our years of experience, we have examined firsthand that trunk lines and rarely (95% of the time) do not find debris, dust particles or high levels of bacteria because of the powerful air forced pressure created by the fan motor. Most of the debris and bacteria ends up at the registers because the air flow is at the lowest pressure as the forced-air system spiders out to all the register openings.
Does that make sense? The easiest way to think of this is the more open registers there are, the less air flow to each duct opening will be achieved. Therefore, on large homes or offices there are more forced-air units required to achieve comfortable heating or air conditioning.
You can either push duct particles & debris to a vacuum system or pull it towards you. Depending on the type of air ducts, meaning solid metal or flex-ducting will determine whether you will use forced air debris removal method or a brush cleaning method. Many residential ducting is flex-ducting and requires you identify the difference before any cleaning system is used so you avoid doing damage to flex-ducts.
National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) for HVAC System Cleaning products, tools and equipment backs all types of air duct cleaning equipment companies.
Because NADCA recognizes there are two differing ways of achieving clean air ducts they support both methods of cleaning.
NADCA was founded in 1989 as the air duct cleaning industry grew because of the advancement & revolutionary technological discoveries in force-air systems. With this advancement came unattended consequences of debris & bacterial build up causing some people to experience heath issues:
Aggravated respiratory disease such as emphysema, bronchitis and asthma.
Lung damage, even after symptoms such as coughing or a sore throat disappear.
Wheezing, chest pain, dry throat, headache or nausea.
Reduced resistance to infections.
We have discovered that most of these common problems in homes & offices are caused by poor air quality. Either from debris & bacterial build up in the ducting system or a broken forced-air system that may be allowing a high level of moisture in the air which can create an environment for feeding bacteria in ducting.
In either case it must be dealt with to have a safe air quality for family members or co-workers. Set aside the legal ramifications in the workplace, poor air quality creates elevated sick time and increases fatigue.
Through our extensive experience, we have also discovered that most of this kind of bacterial issues are found at the end of the line, meaning at the register openings typically in an office are in the ceiling registers right above the employees.

So in choosing an air duct cleaning equipment system does it make more sense to push this debris and bacteria through ducting that may be several 100 feet away to the Negative Air vacuum source or control the possible contaminated debris at the contact point and at the registers openings?
We firmly believe that a better way to control and contain this type of debris & bacteria. We do not believe pushing possible toxic microbials that can adhere to duct walls through it’s long travel to a Negative air vacuum is the best approach.
Rather, removing the debris with our contact method you have better control of the debris and can apply an EPA regulated disinfectant at the point of contact, without moving and possibly spreading bacteria.
Most bacteria lives on the ducting walls and by not attempting to move it through Negative air methods you can apply chemical to kill it on contact. Does that make sense?
FACT FOUR: Pricing –
Negative air equipment companies tend to be very costly. Ranging from 20K to as high as 75K. With truck-mounted duct cleaning systems pricing as much as $75k, the cost of breaking into this industry prevents most from ever getting started.
Worst of all, many of these expensive truck-mounted equipment manufacturers will not work on many duct cleaning job projects. Example would be buildings that do not have access to the trunk lines like Hospitals Prisons or even many high-rise buildings. This type of facilities requires portable duct vacuum systems & air compressors.
