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.
