Can cleaning the air ducts system damage your duct system?

Our house is twenty years old and I would like to have our ducts cleaned out due to allergic symptoms. I have been told by a general contractor that cleaning the air ducts may damage the system due to the force of air that is used.

Has anyone heard of this? What is the process for cleaning the ducts? Is it possible to have a 'gentle' way of cleaning without damaging the duct system i.e. light setting vs forceful setting? Any help or suggestions that you can provide is greatly appreciated!
