As the consumer and customer, you may not be aware about the make-up of your cleaning products (agents) used to clean the carpets in your home or business. To make matters more complicated, your cleaning technician is under no obligation to discuss with you, or to ask for, your approval for the products they use during the cleaning process.
For this reason, we at Special Care Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning do not use harsh chemicals and are upfront about what we bring into your environment. Our focus is on the new generation of green cleaning products that work just as, if not more, effectively. They are safe and do not negatively impact your indoor air quality, personal health or that of your beloved pets.
Our green cleaning agents are 100% natural and derived from vegetable / seed extracts, a renewable resource with no harsh chemical or artificial fragrances, non-toxic, no carcinogens or VOC’S.
