    Post air duct cleaning

    I saw ad for 59.99 for 1 return and 1 main vent(I THINK
    Then it included 16 little vents over to main.
    After that a bunch of fine print I stopped reading thinking about that 49.95 sewer cleaning co I kept reading about on here.

    I have done duct cleaning with another company I worked at. Before I worked there I thought, man I should get into duct cleaning. After doing I said, man I should hire someone to do this.

    The potential is there to make money, but not for a drain cleaner in my opinion. Duct cleaning is generally synonymous with HVAC companies. To do it right, a person should do a clean and check of the furnace at the same time, which requires a bit of knowledge. Another thing is, good equipment like "Roto -Brush" is about 10,000. One more thing, it takes quite a bit longer to duct clean than sewer clean, no quick in and out. I could go on for awhile on this, but I think I made my point.

    That's good info Indie. After I posted this I started looking into it
    and looking around the homes I service Not many had duct work. Commercial has it but not much commercial around here so it made it not worth investing in or looking into.

    Good call. It really is only a nice add on to a furnace sale, or something like it.
