Some Heating and Cooling Contractors offer this service, also some Chimney Sweeps. Some just do dryer vent cleaning.

Make sure that when the cleaning is done, that the bottom of the duct is open or connected to a vacuum - there was a national fire protection bureau bulletin on cleaning being done with the duct attached, and a lot of bound-together lint layers falling down vertical exhaust stacks into the dryer and not being seen, then causing a fire when the ddryer is next used.

The duct should then be checked witha strong flashlight both from top and bottom to be sure there is no pieces left hung up near the bottom, as they would quickly grab onto new lint and block the duct.
