Best Air Duct Cleaning Vacuums 

The ability to tackle big jobs like air duct cleaning takes powerful equipment. Often, carpet cleaning companies that offer air duct cleaning services will use their truck-mounted cleaning system which pulls about 650 CFM of air. Once you factor in the length of the hose and inefficiency, you’ll be lucky if their system is even pulls 250 CFM. Carpet cleaners use a two inch hose which is not large enough for your air duct system. 

At Planet Duct, we use an eight inch hose which pulls anywhere from 5,000 to 13,000 cubic feet of airflow per minute. This powerful vacuum is designed to pull the dirt and debris out of your air ducts unlike carpet cleaning vacuums which are designed for much smaller spaces like carpet fibers.
