Furnace and duct cleaning. We do residential mostly with a little bit of light commercial. Average home takes 2.5 - 3 hours and price is around the $380-$420.

Pest control by a good margin followed by water damage. Tile is third. Carpet cleaning is king of cash flow though.

do you service the pest control customers with the carpet cleaning vans or do you show up in a different truck more marketed towards the service?

VCT strip & wax. Limited competition in my area so it's pretty easy to get $.35 to $.50 per sq. ft. Thought it is not easy work, by the end of the day it's payout is best for me.

Eavestrough cleaning can be the most profitable service for me. I can make $100 in 10 minutes minus my gas to get there and $0.25 of gas in the leaf blower. On average it takes about 45 minutes.

There are a few services that make really good money to time ratio but since residential carpet cleaning is the largest part of my business by far, it stands to reason that it's my most profitable.
Yea, it ain't like making $300 per hour cleaning showers but cleaning carpet is my bread and butter.

Concrete Staining is the most profitable margin wise. I prefer tile over carpet but both make a good chunk of change. Up sell wise granite countertops are really good

My most profitable is tile and grout and natural stone. However like previously mentioned by the rest of the guys in this , carpet cleaning is my bread-and-butter.

Encap is the best for me. I don't do it much, but when I do I have a smile on my face because I'm not burning diesel and unleaded.
