All systems are using either a brush or ball on a pressure hose and pushing it though the supply and returns and main trunk .

All systems are using either a truckmount or a negative air machine.

I use a negative air system similair to the vanmount from Heatseal equipment.
I use the scorpion rod system ran off 175 psi compressor.
Use alot of the attachments Heatseal sells too.
The homes I duct clean have basements with easily accessable main duct work.
In some areas of the US the ductwork is very closed in and using the Rotobrush or Ram air is pretty much all you can do ( no way to hook up 10 inch duct hose onto main ductwork to create negative air) very hit and miss job IMO .
Here is the website to the place I get my gear ( again my custom made vacuum is based off heatseals van mount gear)
Also some pics of what I do.

Thanks for the kind words at the end Joe.
Far from an expert but have been doing residential duct work cleaning since 2000.
Best move I ever made when it comes to diversifying.
Lots of trail and error in the first year or two.
No training ... Like I said trial and error.
Yes I feel I'm doing top quality and very confident going into residential homes .
Do some light commercial, but residential is majority.
Carpet / uph cleaning go hand in hand with duct cleaning ( improve overall indoor air quality).
Love my " Combo's " ( going in and doing carpets/ maybe some uph and furnace and ductwork). Jobs get $600-$800 real quick.
One nice Combo a day and maybe a small carpet order is what I strive for

Emerald, we are in Oregon and yes the ducts are under the house. We actually hook up under the house buy attaching the suction hose to the plenum and creating negative air. Then use air whips as we have all flex ducts. We also do a lot of combos. Probably a few a week that we clean ducts in the morning, n switch trucks and carpets in the afternoon. We almost always add in a dryer vent clean too. Same as you added duct cleaning a few years ago and now run 2 full time duct trucks. Love it!
