Does ProAir offer a Rotary Brush System?
NO! Nearly all residential ducting consists of a thin, flexible plastic lining, which is easily damaged by rotary bushing. But some commercial metal ducts may need a brush tool to help clean some types of commercial ducting however ProAir no longer recommends a brush system due to the liability of damaging ducting.
Why should I add air duct cleaning to my business?
Adding air duct cleaning to your business creates an additional revenue stream. There’s a growing demand for the services of removing dust and debris from ducts. If you can’t provide them, another company will and that gives your competition a foot in the door with your existing customers and prospects alike. These services are simple to provide, they can be profitable quickly, and they’re a natural extension of your existing business.
Does ProAir Unit clean the HVAC trunk-line?
Many Negative Air Duct Cleaning System companies will tell you that Contact Method duct cleaning equipment companies ignore the trunk lines. Maybe some do but we do not. Trunk Lines is the main source of air flow in any forced-air system and it requires inspection to see if there is attached debris. 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 first hand that trunk lines and rarely (95% of the time) find debris. Most of the debris 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.
How much time is involved in a duct cleaning job?
ProAir Duct Cleaning System cuts time down dramatically with our Complete Duct Cleaning Package because of its portability. Depending on the job size will better determine time spent. Negative air systems tend to be large, heavy & costly. Moving this type of cleaning unit in and out of homes takes more time to set-up and tear down per job.

How does ProAir's Dual Motor Vacuum compares to others
ProAir Dual Motor Vacuum system is a very powerful suction source in our cleaning package. With a powerful 175 PSI compressor and our reverse ball blows the sides of the duct as it loosenes dust & debris toward our clear duct box. Since much of the air movement is supplied by the air compressor, the vacuum source can vary from a high-quality portable unit to a truck-mounted vacuum (such as those used by carpet cleaners). ProAir’s Powerful Dual Motor Vac System combines the convenience of a portable with the power of a truckmount in a lightweight (74 pounds!), extremely powerful 900 Air Watts, 145 CFM, 160 Water-lift, 120 Volt machine. No other portable machine on the market can compare to the easy maneuverability and professional look.
What type of air compressor is recommended?
One of the important factors in an air compressor is the tank capacity. You want to be sure to have enough air available to sustain the 25-30 seconds of blasting required for each duct between recharge times. A minimum of 15-20 gallons capacity is recommended. We use the Craftsman Air Compressor, 20 Gallon, 1.8 HP, Oil-Free Air Tools, Max 175 PSI Pressure. However any brand with 175 psi power will work correctly.
Can you cleaning Dryer Vent Ducts with ProAir system?
This is another area in which our system works extremely well. We use our reverse ball & air compressor and sometimes on larger metal ducts we will use our brush system. We have done many dryer vent cleanings and is a nice add-on or stand alone service. Our training video covers this is in detail. Average pricing $129-$299 (Roof Access)
If duct openings are too large what do I do?
This happens a lot in commercial cleaning projects. The 16”x 8” opening of our vacuum box is large enough to cover nearly all supply duct openings in residential homes. For cleaning registers and returns in commercial ducts our 24” x 24” Vacuum Plate works perfect.
