How to Start a Duct Cleaning Business

Follow This Plan to Start Your Own Duct Cleaning Business

If you’re interested in starting your own duct cleaning business, now is a good time to do so. Due to a recent increase in residential and commercial building construction, the duct cleaning industry is projected to grow by 15 percent during the next eight years. The concept of starting a business might seem a little intimidating, but with proper training and the right equipment you can start a high-quality air duct cleaning company. Read today’s blog for a step by step business plan from Superior Air Duct Cleaning.

Step 1: Get Trained and Certified

The first step to starting your duct cleaning business is to get trained and certified. Superior Air Duct Cleaning is a NADCA certified company and we’re proud to offer a full duct cleaning training course, which includes classroom and hands-on experience. From technical cleaning aspects to teaching you how to promote your business, we’ll provide you with everything you need. Upon completion of your training, you’ll receive your certification.

Step 2: Purchase Equipment

The next step is to obtain the necessary equipment to perform the finest duct cleaning services. In order to properly inspect and clean the ducts, you’ll need a powerful vacuum. You can search for truck-mounted vacuum systems or portable models that include cameras to check for mold.

Another option is to acquire hand tools for less money and add to your business inventory when your company grows. If you have any questions about the right tools for air duct cleaning, get in touch with us.

Step 3: Register for Taxes and Open a Bank Account

Before you can officially open for business, ensure that your business is legally compliant. You’ll need to register your business for a variety of state and federal taxes. It’s also a good idea to open a business checking account to organize your finances. Once you get the ball rolling, record your expenses and income, and keep detailed accounts to monitor your business performance.  

Step 4: Get Business Insurance

We recommend insurance for all business owners. Assuming that you’ll hire employees, workers’ compensation insurance coverage is a mandatory requirement in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Step 5: Create Partnerships to Grow Your Business

Advertising your company is important, but references from previous clients and industry professionals will take your business to the next level. Before real estate agents can sell houses, they need you to inspect and clean the ducts. You can build a solid reputation among residential and commercial agents and property managers to gain community support.  

Step 6: Establish a Web Presence

In today’s digital world, creating a business website is the most effective way to reach your target market. By establishing a web presence, you give customers the chance to learn more about you and your company, as well as discover the products and services you offer. You can also use various social media platforms to engage new customers.
