March 31, 2010 // Franchising.com // Ann Arbor, MI – DUCTZ International is taking indoor air quality to a whole new level of clean, from the ground up! DUCTZ, the nation's premier air duct cleaning company, now offers carpet and upholstery cleaning services.
With its new Total Care service offering, that includes air duct cleaning, carpet and upholstery cleaning, and dryer vent cleaning services, DUCTZ now offers residential and commercial customers the benefits of improved indoor air quality from the ground up. Carpets and upholstery tend to collect, dirt, dust, dander and other biological contaminants, and when disturbed can become airborne. Poor indoor air quality can aggravate common breathing problems, such as asthma, allergies, and sinusitis. DUCTZ can now thoroughly and effectively remove the allergens, dirt, dust and other biological contaminants from carpets and upholstery.
"We are truly dedicated to making every home and business a cleaner and healthier place to be." said John Rotche, President of BELFOR Franchise group, which includes the DUCTZ brand. DUCTZ can now clean, beautify, and protect your entire home with our Total Care services. Thoroughly trained in carpet and upholstery cleaning methods, DUCTZ Total Care professionals use specialized tools, equipment and private labeled cleaning products. "We provide the most effective recommended cleaning solutions to our valued customers. Cleaning not only makes carpets and upholstery look better, it also improves the indoor environment and extends the life of carpets and upholstery" said Rotche.
DUCTZ Total Care services provide an economical way to maintain the investment in your home and your lifestyle.
While the economy took its toll on many businesses in 2009, it did not stop John Rotche and the DUCTZ brand from experiencing unprecedented growth. In 2009, DUCTZ increased its number of franchise units by 30-percent, adding 40 new units for a total of 170 units throughout the country. Based on the rapid success of DUCTZ, Rotche decided to launch the DUCTZ Total Care package as a way for DUCTZ franchisees to expand the services of their already successful DUCTZ business.
"We are always looking for ways to help our franchisees diversify their portfolio," said Rotche. "Our new Total Care service offering is a great fit for our established DUCTZ brand and provides another revenue stream for our franchisees, while also adding more value to our services for our customers."
