That is why we have dedicated heavily to making sure our carpet and upholstery cleaning processes and products are safe for your family and the environment.  By using natural cleaners and conserving water, we put in every effort to ensure we are environmentally responsible.

Less Water, Less Waste


Traditional methods, such as steam cleaning, use excessive water pumped at high pressures into the carpets and upholstery. This is generally thought to loosen dirt, but in reality, it pushes dirt deeper into the carpets, all while using litres upon litres of water.

Our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) method uses a fraction of the water as steam cleaning. Rather than using high pressure to loosen dirt, our all-natural cleaning solution, The Natural™, is misted on, releasing carbonated bubbles, which effectively loosen and lift up the dirt trapped in the carpets. As a result of using less water, carpets and upholstery dry much faster, greatly eliminating the chance formold or mildew growth.



Keeping it Natural

Our carpet and upholstery cleaning services use our proprietary, non-toxic cleaning solution, The Natural™. The Natural™ uses ingredients taken straight from Mother Nature, which are all natural, and contains no soaps, solvents, detergents, or enzymes.

Our HCE method uses The Natural™, which mists millions of carbonated bubbles that travel deep into the carpet and break apart the dirt particles and allergens trapped in the fibers. Then our technicians use specialized machines to lift up and extract the solution, dirt and allergens from carpets and upholstery. All you are left with are fresh, clean carpets without any dangerous chemicals or soapy residue.

How do you know The Natural™ is safe for your family and the environment? Every ingredient in The Natural™ is on the FDA G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognized As Safe) list.
