The typical restaurant duct is 8" to 10" in width. A general rule to follow is to choose a duct cleaner that is 65-75% of the width you are cleaning. The six-inch adjustable nozzle model is the most popular and universal of the full line of 3", 6", 12", 16", 20" and 24" duct cleaners. Each duct cleaner is only 2.8" high (excluding the 3" duct cleaner which is 2.4" high).

The cleaning of a cooking exhaust system involves the internal surfaces of the ducts, fan, fan housing and all associated duct work, wherever accessible scraped clean and washed. A system not cleaned regularly will become clogged with grease and deposits resulting in wasting energy to run, increased fire risk and unhealthy bacteria and microbial buildup.

Adjustable or Fixed Duct Cleaners


These duct cleaners are sold standard without the two meg nozzles that will thread into the adjustable or fixed arms. At Higher Power Supplies we will supply the meg nozzles for free. It is important that you know the gallons per minute (GPM) and the pressure (PSI) of your pressure washer to size the correct nozzles for your duct cleaner. The incorrect nozzles will give you too little flow and/or pressure.


Attach the duct cleaner to the end of your pressure washer hose and drop it into the duct to be cleaned. The duct cleaner will clean much thoroughly and quickly than using a pressure washer wand. The swivel inside spins horizontally. The adjustable nozzles allow you to position the spray pattern so you can pass the area twice lifting grease and gunk off the sides of the duct. The fixed duct cleaner sprays from two spinning nozzles in a straight stream.

Air Duct Cleaning Overview
Costly and grave effects come to a home or apartment when air ducts are not cleaned regularly and properly. We are learning more and more about air pollution and its negative aspects. One of the ways in which the indoor air of a home can be improved in quality is to have the air ducts cleaned. This eliminates or reduces the dust and other pollutants within the heating and cooling units of a home. Furnace cleaning is a major part of the duct cleaning process.

The methods most widely used to make sure the job is done right are referred to as the industry’s standards. When it comes to duct cleaning or furnace cleaning, the first thing to do is use specialized tools you have received training with, in order to remove all the dirt, pollen, debris and other airborne pollutants from the inside of the air duct and furnace. Once all of the material has been removed from the pieces, remove all of the loose particles from the air duct. This is performed with the help of a very powerful vacuum cleaner that is designed with high standards in mind. The vacuum cleaner works to remove all of the material that has been scraped and knocked off of the insides of the pieces of the air duct. In some cases a chemical component is added to the inner lining of the air duct and furnace to help prohibit the collection of debris inside, maximizing the potential for the air duct to remain clean. It is important that the chemicals not be used until the inside of the air duct has been properly and sufficiently cleaned and all loose debris has been removed.

How Do You Know When It’s Time To Clean?
The duct cleaning process does not need to occur very often, remember however, a great many system failures occur due to dust and dirt buildup. Sometimes it helps to have a checklist when deciding if you need air ducts cleaned. For instance if the air ducts expel actual pieces of dust and debris from the vents. In some families, when there is a person who suffers from allergies or asthma, they can tell that it is time to have something done about the quality of the air because of the problems they are having. Mold within the air duct is very dangerous since there are actually a few kinds that have toxic spores, which can make individuals very sick. Another dangerous situation is when mice and other pests make their homes in dirty air ducts, getting rid of these intruders is extremely important, as they carry diseases and cause major problems. If a person has owned a home for a number of years and have never had the air duct compartments cleaned they no doubt will need cleaning. The length of time to properly clean the air ducts will depend on the experience of the operator, the size of the system and the degree of debris and grime within the air ducts.

Once air duct passageways are cleaned, the many benefits of having cleaned air ducts will show themselves. If debris had previously been coming out of the air ducts, this will cease, making the environment much more enjoyable for the individuals living or working in the area. The surface areas will be visibly cleaner and the air quality should have undergone a dramatic improvement. Cleaning helps the efficiency of the air duct, vents and furnace as well. This means money saved on monthly utility bills.

The American Lung Association is alleged to have information backing up the fact that in 1976, 29 people were killed by Legionnaire’s Disease, which was spawned from the air conditioning ducts in an area. In the area of Los Angeles, the summer of 1988 brought nine more deaths as a result of the same disease, expected to have been spread in the same manner.
