How was RamAir International, Inc. Founded?
With 10+ years of carpet and air duct cleaning system experience, RamAir Founder/CEO David Hart launched his own commercial air duct cleaning business, Guarantee Cleaning Services, in the spring of 1998. Recognizing the excellent profit potential air duct cleaning services offer, but also being dissatisfied with the air duct cleaning equipment available, David knew there had to be a better way to clean air ducts in a safe, effective and efficient manner. Necessity breeds innovation.
With the goal of creating the perfect air duct cleaning system, David listed what he needed his air duct cleaning system to achieve:
» Completely safe on all ducting including flex.
» Extremely effective, removing all dust and debris from ducts.
» Portable, lightweight, easy to use.
» 1-2 hours per job (instead of 4-6 hours).
» Visual Wow Factor that would amaze the clients.
The RamAir duct cleaning system solved the challenges and limitations of those other air duct cleaning systems with a easy to learn, simple to use, and highly effective dirt removal system. RamAir incorporates the high air movement of the HVAC system, the “high lift” of a cyclonic vacuum and the blasting power of compressed air all into to one system, the RamAir ClearView Duct Cleaning System.
RamAir users quickly realize profits by using the most efficient, easy-to-use duct-cleaning system on the market. With typical profits in the $300 to $500/hour range, an average duct cleaning job with the RamAir system typically takes 1 to 2 hours as compared to up to 6 or more hours with competing systems… a huge RamAir advantage!
The HVAC industry had evolved, but the business of cleaning air ducts remained stagnant for decades, with virtually no improvement or innovation to keep up with changes in HVAC cleaning systems such as the introduction of flexible plastic ducting, in most homes since early 2000. With the increased use of flexible ducting, the use of rotary brushes to clean air ducts had instantly became obsolete. New home manufactures can void home warranties if brush systems are used, as the left behind construction debris and be extremely damaging if picked up by aggressive brush cleaning in flexible duct systems. Negative air systems, requiring large holes to be cut into the duct system, also can void new home warranties.
Meet the Team
Out of dissatisfaction with the cleaning results provided by existing cleaning equipment, David designed the RamAir Duct Cleaning System and launched RamAir International, Inc. to manufacture the equipment in 2007. He began using his system at Guarantee Air Duct Cleaning and was immediately met with rave reviews, which caught the attention of some of the country’s leading cleaning experts and led to international adoption of the technology. Today, David is considered one of the world’s leading experts in HVAC duct cleaning and restoration, with users of his system in every major city of the United States and 21 foreign countries.
Hart has since designed and patented equipment used in disaster and forensic restoration and decontamination, including ozone generation equipment adopted by both the HVAC, disaster & forensic restoration and medical industries.
