Preparing for Cleaning

How to Prepare for Your Cleaning Appointment

Pre-Vacuum Your Carpets

Carpets capture 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 carpet is thoroughly pre vacuumed before we clean it. This can make a huge difference in cleaning results!

Remove Any Breakables

Please move all lamps, plants and breakables before we arrive and make sure that the areas to be cleaned are clear of items on the floor.

It's important to move lamps, plants and breakables before we arrive to clean your carpets. We don't want to have any accidents!
Move Furniture

We can move most furniture, including tables, chairs, and sofas. We cannot move beds which are not on rollers, entertainment units, electronics, china hutches or other oversize or fragile furniture. We will do our best to clean around or under anything that we cannot move.

What Our Customers Have To Say

I recently had the pleasure of using Alberta Carpet Cleaning for their furnace and carpet cleaning services, and I am satisfied with the results. From start to finish, their service was professional, efficient, and delivered exceptional outcomes. The team arrived promptly at the scheduled time, and their friendliness immediately put me at ease. They took the time to assess the condition of my furnace and carpets and explain the cleaning process, ensuring I was comfortable with the service they were about to provide. The technicians were careful in their work, paying special attention to high-traffic areas and stubborn stains. The pricing was fair and transparent, with no hidden fees or surprises.

My couch looks better than when I got it! It smells good, looks good and my technician, Jerrod B, completely understood why I wanted to salvage my couch. He explained the guarantee, told me the after care, ensured everyone in the home was aware of the hoses and cords so no one tripped. The best part about this service was Jerrod, he commented on how nice the couch was, and on the Lego I had in my living room. He was absolutely pleasant to my 8 year old sister, and the pets in the home. He was so nice and friendly to chat to, it was a shame he left! Once he was done, I looked at the couch and he said he was happy how it turned out, and the he tried his best to get it cleaned up ( cat urine is extremely difficult ) overall, if I could give a higher rating I would, the technician was great, thoroughly knowledgable, and early! The couch is better than when I bought it, and I will use their services again if I ever need it. Thank you for saving my couch Jerrod!!!

I had paid for a different company to come in and do my carpets, and there wasn't much difference at all. Then I tried Alberta Carpet Cleaning, and all the stains and odors Etc were gone. The carpet looks very, very good now, so we do not have to put in laminate. Oops, I meant to mention the gentleman who did the carpets Jason G. was fantastic , he was friendly and funny and went beyond the customer's expectations by far . I will definitely go with these guys again next time I need carpets done! Thanks again! :) Kate
