Canadian Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning
Let’s face it, life is messy. But the certified professionals at Canadian Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning can make it cleaner by getting the dirt, grime, odours and stains out of your carpets, rugs and upholsteries. We use heavy-duty truck-mounted cleaning equipment to give you the cleanest carpets, rugs and upholsteries.
Hot Water Extraction
Did you know that a hot water extraction is the only method your stain-resistant carpet’s warranty will allow? Unlike other methods, hot water extraction will not damage carpet fibres or stain-resistant coating. Our process is completely self-contained; we bring our own water and remove the dirty water for treatment and disposal. With our units’ heat and suction capabilities, Canadian Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning is able to effectively clean carpet and upholstery. And they dry super-fast!
Protect Your Investment
And did you know that your carpet warrantee may also require you to clean your carpets once a year by default? At Canadian Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, we agree. Some areas may require cleaning even more often, depending on the carpet colour and the amount of traffic it receives. Keeping that ground-in soil out of your carpet is the best thing for it. By vacuuming, you can only remove the surface soil. We remove the deeply imbedded soil that pre-maturely ages your carpet fibre. A good quality carpet can easily last 15 to 20 years with proper regular maintenance.
Your Carpet’s Dirty Little Secret
The single biggest carpet myth out there is that “Carpets are bad for our health because of all the dust and allergens they hold.” The truth is that carpets play a vital, positive role in indoor air quality. Carpets act as an environmental filter, trapping and holding impurities from the air we breathe. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the carpet industry’s findings indicate that with proper maintenance, carpet itself does not contribute negatively to indoor air quality. But the build up of soil does. Upholstered fabrics also contain soil and contaminants.
Hard Floors vs. Carpets
Ever notice all the dust bunnies that just float around on a hard surface floor? That is the benefit of carpet. On hard surface flooring, all those dust bunnies just float around. With carpet, dust stays where it lands. Because the dust stays on the floor, you’re not breathing it in. Hard flooring allows dust to not only float around on the floor but also to become airborne; thereby presenting a hazard to your breathing and overall health -- especially if you suffer from allergies or asthma. (Saying hard surfaces are better for asthma and allergies is like, taking the filter out of your furnace and sweeping out your ductwork every day!) Canadian Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning also recommends crucial placement of entrance mats for the same reasons mentioned above. A good quality entrance mat can stop outside soil from traveling inside, making floor maintenance easier to manage.
According to the EPA, the single leading cause of poor air quality today is poor maintenance. Vacuum regularly, and call Canadian Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning to clean your carpet and upholstery periodically to remove trapped contaminants before they overflow and are released back into the air. If you suffer from asthma, all fabrics should be washable and cleaned on a regular basis, including all bedding and draperies. You should also have a newer vacuum with a hepa filter to prevent dust from becoming a hazard while you vacuum.
…Our (Not-So) Secret Weapon
For regular carpets, we begin with a pre-treatment soap specially designed for carpets and upholsteries. We then use a 100% hot water rinse and powerful, truck-mounted vacuum, leaving your carpets fresh and free of dirt and residue. Don’t forget that pet odour removal is also available.
Many homeowners assume that just because their upholstered furniture looks clean, then it is clean. But, just like carpeting, upholsteries accumulate bacteria, allergens, dust and odours. With Canadian Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning's specialized upholstery-cleaning service, we can remove dirt, stains, germs and odours from your upholstered items. Our upholstery-cleaning methods are safe for most regular, exotic and wool fabrics. We recommend scheduling a regular cleaning about once a year, depending on the colour and the amount of use your furniture receives.
Area Rug Cleaning
Using our time-tested techniques, Canadian Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning is able to clean and sanitize most area rugs woven from synthetic materials and wool. Don’t let your area rug trigger allergies or asthma!
