It’s Back to School Cleaning Time in Calgary!
Is your home ready for for the fall? With all the fabulous weather we had over the summer in Calgary, now is a great time to get an early start on fall cleaning in your home; your area rugs, carpets and furniture.
If your home is like many of ours, there’s probably been an accumulation of food and drink dribbles, yard materials tracking into the home from all the summer fun, pet hair and paw tracks and other problems. During the fall and winter months our homes are closed up tight so it’s important to try and rid your home of potential allergens, germs and bacteria that can get trapped inside before the really cold weather settles in.
Green Ingenuity provides safe, eco-friendly, economical cleaning of your rugs, carpet and upholstery. Fall cleaning has started so, to get your most convenient appointment time, call us 403-243-8420, email firstname.lastname@example.org or book on-line www.greeningenuity.ca.

And it deserves special attention. We offer an extensive 10 step process designed to insure that your rug is safely and effectively cleaned.
We have been cleaning rugs for over 50 years in Calgary so know that it will be done right.
Our system incorporates the following safe, eco-friendly, green carpet cleaning services to insure that the best possible carpet cleaning results are obtained and that your carpets are restored to as near their original appearance as possible. We pre-treat spots and high-traffic areas and clean using our powerful extraction equipment. We provide firm estimates with no hidden extra charges.
We provide safe cleaning care for your fine upholstered furniture. Our cleaning is done on-site in your home and each technician is qualified, experienced and certified. We use low-moisture upholstery tools and hot-water extraction, when done properly by our experienced technicians, provides far better cleaning results than “dry-cleaning” and at reasonable prices. It is also non-damaging to the environment and your upholstery is usually dry in 2-3 hours and ready for use. Our work and your satisfaction are important to us!
Green Ingenuity’s environmentally-safe cleaning services will help your area rugs or carpet and upholstery look their best. And you can feel good knowing that our cleaning methods and practices will leave the environment pristine, both inside and outside of your home. Our professional cleaning services are proven effective in gently removing dirt, minimizing germs, deodorizing and extending the life of textile fibres.
We go a little further, too, by protecting your furniture from damp carpet and our powerful vacuum equipment insures that drying time is minimal, so that you can get back to enjoying your home as soon as possible.
