My experience was great from start to finish – a timely response to my request for a quote to get 2 large (8’ x 10’) cotton Indian area rugs cleaned off site. I was quoted $493 to get them both done but with the caveat that if some stains were resistant, it might be higher. I thought this was fair – might sound like a lot of money, however, I hadn’t had them cleaned in 7 years and I knew that at the very least, they were full of dust and one of them had some tough stains to get out. I was given a date and a 2 hours time range in which they would be picked up. They picked up within that 2 hour window. My carpets were picked up by Aldwin – extremely courteous and answered all my questions.11 days later, I received a call from them to set up the drop off appointment – Saturday morning between 8 – 10 a.m., which was great as I didn’t have to work from home, sent me a confirmation email, called me on the Saturday morning between 7 & 8 a.m., and were there by 8:16 a.m. Nicole dropped off the cleaned rugs, which were enclosed in heavy duty poly bags to protect them – she explained that Aldwin, who had picked up my rugs, had cleaned the one that was heavily stained, 9 times. It looks great! And I was charged the price in my original quote. Both Aldwin and Nicole were very professional, and the company kept me in the loop throughout the whole process. I will use them again and I highly recommend them!

Our technician was very friendly. He also was trustworthy in that I had to leave for an appointment and was able to leave my key for him to lock the door and slip it back under the door. Carpets look good.

I have had Alberta Carpet and Furnace cleaning do my annual furnace cleaning for a few years and have always been happy with their service. When I got their services for my church, I was wowed at their attention to detail. The tech Justin was thorough and he was so good. He double checked on some stains on the carpet to ensure I was ok with how they didn't quite clean out. He was efficient and went above in ensuring the streaks that came out when chairs were steamed cleaned were wiped off. I am so glad we chose them and look forward to having them clean our ducts as well

I give Alberta Carpet Cleaning five stars for taking ownership of a series of incidents and then rectifying the situation.I give John who was on the phone, and the young man who delivered my carpet Five stars.

Wow wow wow!! The 2 gentlemen that came to clean the furnace of our first home were a duo of true professionals. Ha and Richie were considerate in letting me know when they would be coming, with 2 phone updates.And when they noticed other items that required service. They fully educated me on my options, never pushy. I am a first time home buyer and their professionalism and knowledge truly enhanced this experience for me.I will be a return customer for sure👍🏻

Glenn was very fast and efficient. The carpets look brand new and I am very happy with the results. He also chatted with me at the end which I appreciated. Very polite. We also still had some things to move off the carpet and although it wasn’t his job he helped move some furniture before starting the carpet cleaning. Would recommend this company and Glenn to everyone. Hope to use him again next time we need a carpet cleaning.

From a general inquiry and estimate to closing the door after the cleaning was done, in other words the whole experience of dealing with Alberta Carpet Cleaning - was a pure pleasure. Professional, competent, personable, and absolutely excellent results. If you want a great experience and result like I got from Justin you're talking to the right people at Alberta Carpet Cleaning.

The service was outstanding! We had to cancel our first appointment because of the old tenants being difficult and they were really cool about it. I was able to call and remake the appointment the next week. We have 3 cats and Mark our technician was very animal friendly and made sure he said hi to them and made sure we had a safe spot to keep them while the door was opened. The carpet itself is almost 3 shades lighter, the overall cleanliness is not something we could achieve on our own. Thank you you for making this stressful situation easier and faster for the 3 of us and the animals.

FANTASTIC. TECHNICIAN MARK BERNHARDT DID A FANTASTIC JOB. CARPETS HAD NOT BEEN CLEANED FOR 10 YEARS. EVERYTHING CAME UP LIKE NEW AND THE CARPETS ARE 25 YEARS OLD. MARK IS POLITE, INFORMATIVE, AND A PLEASURE TO DO BUSINESS WITH. QUICK, EFFICIENT AND VERY EFFECTIVE. I RECOMMEND THE PRE-TREATING WITH THEIR SPECIAL CHEMICAL BECAUSE WE HAVE 3 CATS THAT OCCASIONALLY PUKE. ALL STAINS WERE REMOVED AND I ALSO RECOMMEND THE SCOTCH GUARD. I BELIEVE IT WAS THE SCOTCH GUARD THAT THEY USED 10 YEARS AGO THAT MADE THIS CLEANING SO MUCH EASIER. VERY SATISFIED. YES IT IS NOT CHEAP, BUT WELL WORTH IT. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH THE RESULTS. KUDOS.

I had two separate services performed- One cleaning before moving into our new home, and one cleaning of our rental after moving out. Socrates was our moving in cleaner, and he was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and did a high quality job. Mark was the technician performing the carpet cleaning at our rental residence and was also everything mentioned above. Excellent service and I will definitely use again in the future. They seem to hire excellent people across the board.

I am very pleased with the professional cleaning of our rugs and recliner . I have had other company’s in the past and there workmanship does not compare to the terrific job that the agent for Alberta Carpet cleaning did . The Tech ( Sol) was professional and did not try to BS me on products or application. He suggested products that complemented my requirements with a active older Dog and cat . It was a tough cleaning job and carpet looks very good . It is 15 year old carpet and been clean every year by other company and this is by far best cleaning and considering my dog issues that says a lot! Thank You Sol ...

Such a professional company! Mark did an awesome job of cleaning all four rooms, got some stains out and was quick, efficient, and thorough! Love that they put down drop sheets, corner protectors for walls and furniture, and the door curtain to help keep the cold out while they do the work. Great company!

Had Alberta carpet cleaning to come and clean our carpets on the apartment we just sold. I believe it was a fellow named Nick who came to our place to conduct the cleaning. Firstly, what an epic attitude to have! The kid (younger fellow, just using the term in a positive nature) was beyond friendly, super informative and willing to answer all questions. Didn’t realize you could not wear leather shoes on the carpet when cleaning or after (thanks nick) for they will transfer colors. Nick also cleaned the apartment in a super quick and good fashion. Let us know the high traffic areas you won’t be able to get the west and tear out but my lord! The carpet was so clean I almost couldn’t even tell there was wear and tear. Will be coming back to use these guys again for any house or commercial situation I will encounter. Money well spent in my opinion and look forward to dealing with you guys again. Also, they offer furnace cleaning????!!!!! Looks like I need to review that next!

More than just carpet cleaning – Alberta Carpet Cleaning technicians are trained and equipped to clean your upholstered and leather furniture! Even with regular vacuuming and spot cleaning for spills or stains, furniture needs cleaning every 18 to 24 months to maintain it’s best appearance and extend its maximum useful life.

Most furniture holds up very well to daily wear and tear without showing clear signs of soiling, however without professional cleaning, there is gradual accumulation of soil over time. In upholstered furniture, soil particles are worked into the surface, contributing to premature wear and permanent fabric damage. With leather, long term neglect can cause permanent discoloration and damage to the leather.

Not sure if your furniture needs cleaning? Ask our tech to test your upholstery using the vacuum test, or to test-clean an inconspicuous spot on your leather furniture.

Preparing for Your Cleaning
Preparing for Your Cleaning

Preparing for Your Cleaning

One or two days prior to your appointment, we will telephone you to confirm all of your details, including your cleaning address and your order. If you have any questions before then, please feel free to telephone us or contact us.

Before We Arrive:

1) Pre-Vacuum – furniture captures a lot of dust, dirt and hair. Much as you would vacuum or sweep a hard floor before mopping or cleaning, it is very important that your furniture is thoroughly pre vacuumed before we clean it. This can make a huge difference in cleaning results!

2) Preparing Your Space – please move all lamps, plants and breakables that might get in the way of access of all sides of the furniture before we arrive and make sure that the areas to be cleaned are clear of additional items (throw pillows & blankets, etc.).

On the Day of Cleaning:

1) Time – for morning appointments, we will telephone you between 7 and 8 AM to give you your two hour window of arrival between 8 AM and 1 PM. For afternoon appointments, we will telephone you between 10 AM and noon with your two hour window between 11 AM and 5 PM. If you will be away from home on that day and need 30 minutes or an hour notice to return, please let us know when we call to confirm your appointment.

2) Parking – we require legal, paved parking within 30 feet of the entrance of your home.

3) Payment – we accept debit and all major credit cards. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept personal cheques or cash.

Immediately After Cleaning:

Pay Attention to Drying

After cleaning your upholstered furniture will be slightly damp for up to 24 hours, depending on the temperature, air flow and humidity in your home. You can help speed up the drying process by keeping throw pillows or blankets off of damp furniture, running fans, including the summer fan on your furnace, opening windows (in summer) and keeping the area warm. If your furniture is not dry within a day, please contact us.

Spots & Stains

When stains have soaked thoroughly into upholstery, they often spread below the surface into the foam or batting, and cleaning can cause residues to “wick up”, causing stains to reappear or even appear larger after cleaning. If you have any concerns with reappearing stains, or any of the results of your cleaning, even after everything has dried, please telephone us.

Regular Maintenance –  Tips for Keeping Upholstery Looking Great

Vacuum thoroughly: Although it may not be obvious, dust and dirt settle into your upholstery from the air and every day use. Vacuuming your furniture thoroughly with the furniture attachment of your vacuum helps to keep your furniture looking great longer. How frequently you should vacuum is based on how must dust is in the home and how much the furniture is used.

Spot Clean: If you have a small spill or spot, clean it carefully and quickly, while it is still wet, following our stain guide. Use an absorbent material such as a cloth diaper or disposable diaper or feminine pad to absorb as much as possible. If there is a large volume of liquid, we recommend calling a professional, as it will be difficult to extract on your own. Visit our Stain Guide for at home spot and stain tips!

Get Your Furniture Treated with 3M Scotchgard™: Scotchgard™ helps fabrics resist soiling and makes cleaning up spots and spills easier. PLUS we make it easy for you to keep your furniture looking great, with our Scotchgard™ Guarantee: For 1 year from the date that we apply Scotchgard™ to your upholstery, we will return up to two times for FREE to treat spots and stains on the treated furniture items! 

Keep up the Cleaning: Your furniture should be professionally cleaned every 12-24 months in order to maintain your investment and keep it looking great for as long as possible. Cleaning your furniture regularly can prevent premature wear, improve appearance and prolong its life.

Furniture Cleaning  FAQs

FAQs

Furniture Cleaning FAQs

Why should I choose professional upholstery cleaning?

Dust, dirt in the air and on clothing settle into upholstery and carpet. Regular use of furniture causes these almost invisible soil particles to penetrate deeper than a regular vacuum or personal steam cleaner can extract. Over time, soil particles degrade the fibres of your upholstery, causing permanent damage and decreased appearance.

My furniture has some removable covers – why not just put them in the washing machine?

Your washing machine & laundry detergent are not designed for properly cleaning the designer fabrics used for furniture. Zippered cusions are designed this way so that the foam or cushion can be replaced when it wears out, not so that the cover can be washed at home. Professional furniture cleaning provides a thorough clean without fading, shrinkage and damage to the shape or fabric. Furthermore, when you clean just the cushion covers the rest of the furniture will not match the clean cushions.

Will professional upholstery cleaning remove the protective coating applied when I bought my furniture?

Over time all fabric protectors lose effectiveness, with or without cleaning. If your furniture was purchased more than 2 years ago or is clearly showing signs of soiling, professional upholstery cleaning is recommended. Cleaning will remove what is left of the protectant that was applied when you bought your furniture. We are a certified applicator of 3M Scotchgard ™ Fabric Protector, the worlds leading fabric protection system.

Can you do anything to eliminate strong odours in my furniture?

In addition to Scotchgard ™ which is applied following your cleaning, we also offer Advanced Generation Deodorizer™, which is applied prior to the cleaning and works to disinfect the upholstery, remove odours and leave a pleasant light citrus scent. For biological stains and odours, we recommend application of an enzyme based product called Bio-Treat ™. Bio-Treat ™ is applied following your cleaning and the active formula works over the next 24 to 48 hours to actually digest any residual organic material and stains, improving the appearance and the smell.

Zippered cusions are designed this way so that the foam or cushion can be replaced when it wears out, not so that the cover can be washed at home. Professional furniture cleaning provides a thorough clean without fading, shrinkage and damage to the shape or fabric. Furthermore, when you clean just the cushion covers the rest of the furniture will not match the clean cushions.

Will professional upholstery cleaning remove the protective coating applied when I bought my furniture?

Over time all fabric protectors lose effectiveness, with or without cleaning. If your furniture was purchased more than 2 years ago or is clearly showing signs of soiling, professional upholstery cleaning is recommended. Cleaning will remove what is left of the protectant that was applied when you bought your furniture. We are a certified applicator of 3M Scotchgard ™ Fabric Protector, the worlds leading fabric protection system.

Can you do anything to eliminate strong odours in my furniture?

In addition to Scotchgard ™ which is applied following your cleaning, we also offer Advanced Generation Deodorizer™, which is applied prior to the cleaning and works to disinfect the upholstery, remove odours and leave a pleasant light citrus scent. For biological stains and odours, we recommend application of an enzyme based product called Bio-Treat ™. Bio-Treat ™ is applied following your cleaning and the active formula works over the next 24 to 48 hours to actually digest any residual organic material and stains, improving the appearance and the smell.
