Every home should maintain healthy indoor air quality. The air duct plays a vital role in circulating airflow through the air conditioning and heating system. The conditions of ducts impact the quality of the air you breathe.
Energy-efficient houses are now more securely sealed and less ventilated than previous constructions. Millions of dust and dirt particles can be found in filthy ducts. These particles, dirt, and filthy airflow may cause numerous health issues.
Negative Air Duct Cleaning Machine
Negative air pressure air duct cleaning is an alternative to forced air cleaning procedures. This method uses a vacuum to produce negative pressure in the air duct system, sucking any dust, allergies, and germs. It generates a vacuum effect within the controlled surface.
Many people mix up negative air machines with air scrubbers. The key difference is the vacuum. Negative air machines work by sucking in air and expelling it outside.
The machine ensures that the room is under negative pressure during cleaning, preventing air contaminants from spreading to other sections of the structure.

How Negative Air Pressure Air Duct Cleaning Works
To begin the process, you must seal all the air vents, and air returns except the one you will be used to suck the air from. You can block them with foam or any other material that will obstruct the airflow.
The negative air duct cleaning method blows off all the dust from the air ducts to a machine. When you block all the air return ducts, you can create negative pressure to clean the dust.
Step 1: Loosen the dust and particles from the air duct using a vacuum suction pipe
Step 2: Seal all the air and return vents to control the airflow
Step 3: Select your preferable negative air duct machine
Step 4: Attach the air blower pipe to the main duct
Step 5: Start the air compressor
Step 6: Start vacuuming from the furthest air vent and finish with the closest one to the socket. Then, blow the air from the air duct and suck it into the machine
Finally, Clean the return air areas using the same method, and do not forget to vacuum your floor afterward.
