Green Carpet Cleaning Calgary
Q: I understand that you offer environmentally friendly carpet cleaning in Calgary. What does it mean?
A: Environmentally friendly or ‘green’ carpet cleaning Calgary means that we do not use any toxic chemicals and guarantee that there will be no chemical residue in your carpet after cleaning.
Q: What is the process you use for ‘green’ carpet cleaning in Calgary?
A: We use process called oxygenation. Oxygenation means cleaning with oxygenated water micro bubbles that are created in a machine with an oxygenation chamber. These micro bubbles of oxygenated water go through a water cell, where an electric current creates a stream of highly charged acidic and alkaline water that does the same job as a regular cleaner: it breaks down dirt into small particles and removes it from the carpet surface.
Q: Is oxygenation as efficient in cleaning carpets in Calgary as other, traditional cleaning methods?
A: Oxygenation is even more efficient that traditional methods, because it uses high temperature oxygenated water, which not only cleans but kills harmful bacteria as well.
Q: Do you ever use any chemicals?
A: We need to use chemical cleaning products to remove particularly stubborn stains from carpets and upholstery. We use only non-toxic and biodegradable products.
Q: What is normally contained in carpet cleaners?
A: The most commonly used carpet cleaner contains perchloroethylene or PERC, a well-known dry cleaning additive which causes dizziness, fatigue and nausea, possibly kidney and liver damage. Naphthalene, another solvent, is considered dangerous to the human central nervous system and is possible even carcinogenic. Some of the dry carpet cleaning solvents contains butyloxy ethanol, known to damage the central nervous system, liver, and kidneys.
Q: What ‘green’ products can I use for spot cleaning between two professional visits?
A: Most popular brand names are NatureClean, SimpleGreen, Bi-O-Kleen, or Seventh Generation’s Natural Citrus Carpet Cleaner. Biokleen has received a prestigious Tree Hugger Best of Green Award for 2010, for the Best Cleaning Product.
Q: What else your company does in order to protect the environment?
A: We are proud of our efforts to protect the environment and to make sure that our business and our products do not cause any damage. Besides using only non-toxic and biodegradable products, we dispose of all liquids used for cleaning carpets by neutralizing them first and never just flush them into the sewer unprocessed. We also use only fuel-efficient cleaning trucks.
Q: What other environmentally friendly service does your company offer?
A: We offer the latest technology for mattress cleaning, using ultraviolet lamps, which mimic action of the sun and completely remove bed mites. Mites are known to cause severe allergic reaction in some people and in people suffering from asthma. All our services are using only non-toxic and biodegradable cleaning products.
Q: How can I find a ‘green’ carpet cleaning company in Calgary?
A: Many companies are trying to take advantage of the customers’ demand for environmentally friendly cleaning services, and advertise as such, without in fact using ‘green’ methods and products. Make sure that the company you would like to use, or which is recommended to you, has seals such as ‘Green Seal Certified’ or “Green Business Certified’.
Q: How long do I have to wait before using my carpet after it has been cleaned by oxygenation?
A: The process includes almost complete removal of all liquids and clean carpet can be used almost immediately.
Q: Do you also offer deodorizing and Scotch-guard protection?
A: Yes, we do, if that is what our customers wish.
Q: Is the clean carpet safe for my children to play on?
A: Our cleaning process does not leave any harmful residue and is completely safe for you and your children.
Q: Can oxygenation remove all stains?
A: Oxygenation removes all dirt, disinfects and removes most of fresh stains, but some stubborn or old stains require additional treatment. Our technicians will evaluate what is needed before starting the cleaning process.
Q: Is oxygenation suitable for all types of carpets?
A: Yes, the process is safe for both natural and man-made fibers.
