I have done a few vents with a Lint Eater and extra lines added. It works fine for its intended use.
The Lint Eater has its limits on long vents with 90* turns or multable vent elbow turns ( Dr. Seuss style dryer vents).In that case you would have to dissasemble the vent to clean it.
I use lint eater as a suppliment , after I see the vent run. I would not want to be a one stop vent cleaner with just a Lint Eater.

I'm not an expert, but I would think there are some Vent systems that I would not touch..
enclosed, hidden, attic, etc .. can't be sure of what material
(fire liability, ect).. house burns down because of Dryer Vent fire .. "But it was just cleaned by ...
May be better left to the "professional" vent cleaners.
But if it's just a simple 6 foot up & out, maybe don't charge $$
usually, you're right there anyhow ..

I personally don't do dryer vent cleaning but know other Appliantologists who do as a part of their service bidness. The LintEater system is pretty universally recognized as being a good one for the money.

If I cannot physically see the vent material and the vent hood on the outside of the house, I won't touch it. I refer all my customers to http://www.dryerventwizard.com/. I let him get up on the ladders, get in between walls and get into the places where I cannot see the vent ducting myself.
