Love Your Life and What You Do

How can DUCTZ, America’s largest residential and commercial duct-cleaning franchise, help you achieve your financial and lifestyle goals? It is really quite simple:
  • A franchise BUSINESS MODEL that stretches your reach.
  • A team CULTURE dedicated to mutual success.
“In 2009 I purchased two territories in Chicago. Eighteen months later I own 13.”

“The concept is unique in all of franchising,” says Homero Bernal, DUCTZ franchise of Chicago owner. “My technicians may be restoring HVAC systems, but we are helping families put their lives back together, providing a green service that improves the air they breathe, building friendships, and creating loyal customers. I can’t think of anything more fulfilling.”

Our Business Model revolves around you and your customers

You want a business that is recession resistant. We deliver residential and commercial customers several ways to smooth out rough edges in the economy:
  • With DUCTZ Total Care, you will take indoor-air quality to a whole new level of clean—from the ground up. Your Total Care service includes air-duct cleaning, carpet and upholstery cleaning, and dryer vent cleaning. Your repeat customers will generate recurring revenues.
  • Owners who participate on our National Service Team benefit from local “push-down” work and from large-scale national projects.
  • And, our Partners Program will set you up for referrals from local businesses.
You want a business that is building off a solid foundation. DUCTZ is a Franchise 500® concept and is owned by BELFOR.
  • DUCTZ and sister brand, HOODZ, America’s fastest growing kitchen exhaust cleaning franchise, are part of the Belfor Franchise Group. BELFOR is the worldwide leader in disaster recovery and property restoration with over $2 billion in sales, offices in 29 countries, and the ability to assist 90% of the global insurance market.
  • DUCTZ was founded in 2003. We began franchising in 2004, and in the last three years we have awarded more than 130 new territories.
You want a business that meets your operating objectives and investment criteria.
  • Our Business Model is designed so that you can operate your DUCTZ franchise hands on, semi-absentee, or as an absentee owner.
  • You total investment can be less than $100,000.
  • We offer in-house financing to qualified individuals.
You will own your own DUCTZ franchise, but you won’t be alone in the business
