What to Expect From an Air Duct Cleaning Tools

If you choose to have your ducts cleaned with the proper air duct cleaning tools , the service provider should:

Open access ports or doors to allow the entire system to be cleaned and inspected by air duct cleaning tools

Inspect the system before cleaning to be sure that there are no asbestos-containing materials (e.g., insulation, register boots, etc.) in the heating and cooling system. Asbestos-containing materials require specialized procedures and should not be disturbed or removed except by specially trained and equipped contractors.

Use vacuum equipment that exhausts particles outside of the home or use only high-efficiency particle air (HEPA) vacuuming equipment if the vacuum exhausts inside the home.

Protect carpet and household furnishings during cleaning.

Use well-controlled brushing of duct surfaces in conjunction with contact vacuum cleaning to dislodge dust and other particles.

Use only soft-bristled brushes for fiberglass duct board and sheet metal ducts internally lined with fiberglass. (Although flex duct can also be cleaned using soft-bristled brushes, it can be more economical to simply replace accessible flex duct.)

Take care to protect the duct work, including sealing and re-insulating any access holes the service provider may have made or used so they are airtight with proper RamAir air duct cleaning tools

Follow NADCA‘s standards for air duct cleaning and NAIMA‘s recommended practice for ducts containing fiber glass lining or constructed of fiber glass duct board.

The Sidewinder is the most versatile cleaning tool for all sizes of ducts made of metal, flex, duct board, and even internally insulated types. It effectively dislodges debris and air scrubs the interior surfaces of any duct system. Two asymmetrical hole pattern balls were specially designed by Air-Care for the Sidewinder. Both designs provide effective cleaning of the top, sides and bottom of duct interiors and provide thrust to propel the Sidewinder deep into the duct and make operator controlled turns. The Sidewinder ball for metal ducts has a more aggressive action, while the soft-lining ball has an air-jet pattern that is less aggressive with increased air-washing action. Both metal and soft lining Sidewinder balls are included with the assembly. The Sidewinder requires a 2-stage compressor capable of 175 PSI at 14-25 CFM.
