DIY
If you’re prepared to clean air ducts yourself, you will need the following tools:

  • Vacuum. Vacuuming is a popular method that many use to brush away dust. For best results, use a large portable vacuum with a HEPA filter.
  • Mechanical brush. This tool can suck up all the debris stuck in your ductwork.
  • Air sweep. The air sweep method is perhaps the most effective for getting the job done.
