IICRC CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL CARPET CLEANING
Check out our videos!


In our 30 years of carpet cleaning, we have discovered that our clients in Lethbridge, AB want several things in a professional carpet cleaning service.

We Deliver!

1. "Absolutely Awesome Carpet Cleaning" - that is our slogan because that is always our goal. Our technicians strive to make it as beautiful as is possible! Cleaning removes soils from carpet to restore beauty, color, texture & softness. The process of how we get this done is farther down this web page.

2. Great value for your hard earned money. No Gimmicks, No Sales Pressure, No Hidden Charges, No Kidding!! If however, you are looking a for a cheap, quickie, run of the mill, surface clean - we ask that you call another company as we decided a long time ago that our cleaning needed to be Absolutely Awesome at each and every job we do. Therefore we are not the cheaper company town to hire. If however, you want Amazing Cleaning with Awesome Service that is totally guaranteed to be that way - you have found the company you will use for the rest of you life as long as you live in Southern Alberta! We offer free local on-site quotes ahead of your cleaning appointment so you know exactly how much your cleaning project will cost.

3. Carpets that dry in 1 - 6 hours so life can get back to normal. Our goal for every cleaning appointment is to have it dry within 3 hours after we are gone. We confess that about 1 job per week doesn't meet the goal. We are limited by several factors when we make this goal. Things that effect how long it takes to dry include: How much carpet are we cleaning in this appointment? Are we able to crack open a window or 2? What is the humidity outside the day we are cleaning? If we are in doubt that it may take longer to dry than 3 hours, we will leave a special carpet dryer behind at your home to assist in the drying process. Just like you, WE WANT your home back to normal as quickly as possible!

4. Technicians with a smile that make your day - not add stress! Our head cleaning technicians Con (30 years) & Anthony (21 years) are both IICRC Certified Master Textile Cleaning Technicians! Why is this important to you? You need to know that not many full time professional carpet cleaners CHOOSE to go to carpet cleaning schools! Unlike many other industries (ie Electricians & Plumbers) school is optional, we CHOOSE to go to school, we then pass our exams and when you do enough of the individual courses and clean long enough in the real world, we become Certified Cleaners, Journeyman Textile Cleaners & finally Master Textile Cleaners. Our Jr. Cleaning Technician Josh is a Journeyman Textile Cleaner & even our administartive assistant Maria is Certified as well. Our staff members owns about 80% of all individual certifications for our industry of all cleaning technicians in the Lethbridge area.

4. Technicians with a smile that make your day - not add stress! Con Schultz is an IICRC Certified Master Textile Cleaning Technician! Why is this important to you? You need to know that not many full time professional carpet cleaners CHOOSE to go to carpet cleaning schools! Unlike many other industries (ie Electricians & Plumbers) school is optional, we CHOOSE to go to school, we then pass our exams and when you do enough of the individual courses and clean long enough in the real world, we become Certified Cleaners, Journeyman Textile Cleaners & finally Master Textile Cleaners. Even our administrative assistant Maria is Certified as well. Our staff members owns about 80% of all individual certifications for our industry of all cleaning technicians in the Lethbridge area.

5. What about cleaning agents? Most of our cleaning uses very little cleaning agents in the first place. We prefer bigger & better machinery with less cleaning agent vs. little machines with strong cleaning solutions. We often clean the carpets of a mainfloor bungalow with less than 1/8 cup of cleaning agent. Everything we use for common cleaning is environmentally responsible, and healthy for not only our client who may be exposed to the cleaning agents for up to 2 hours every 6 months to a year, but we are much more concerned for our technicians who deal with these cleaning agents for 30 - 40 per week - every week! You can be rest assured that we as techinicans using these formulas every day are very concerned about what we use & breathe into our lungs everyday! Yes, our cleaning solutions are very very safe! For those with Chemical Sensitivity issues, we handle several clients a year with extreme concerns for this issue (please let us know to discuss specifics!).Yes, we are concerned for your health too! For those with allergies - all our cleaning & solutions will help you too!

6. The company with all the right tools! We firmly believe that the best cleaning comes with the right cleaning technican in your home. That is of first priority. However, if we put the best tools available in their hands, you get an amazing combination that cannot be beat. There is no such thing as just 1 type of cleaning equipment is the best choice for every situation. There is too many different types of carpet out there. Therefore, our cleaning service vehicles have multiple different types of cleaning equipment in them, not just 1 as the only choice when we arrive at your home.

For more information of this nature, we highly recommend you read our CLEANOLOGY newsletter article "Carpet Cleaning: Dollars & Sen$e"

So how do we actually do our carpet cleaning? Keep on viewing this web page to read all about it!

Healthy Home Care Truckmount Steam

Our Healthy HomeCare Truckmount Steam Cleaning process does a fantastic job of cleaning residential carpets! Our primary cleaning agents are environmentally friendly, safe for you & your family, safe for pets, and still tough on dirt.

Here is what you can expect with our "standard" level of service:

Arrival usually within 30 minutes of our appointed time. We usually phone ahead when we are on our way. If at anytime you would like to know our status of arrival, please call our office and Maria should be able to let you know who soon we'll be arriving.

Arrival usually within 30 minutes of our appointed time. We usually phone ahead when we are on our way.An IICRC Master Certified Cleaning Technician will be in your home!


Pre-inspection & assessment of carpet type, conditions and expected results. We'll provide an exact written cost and get your approval before we proceed if we did not do a free local in-home assessment prior to your actual cleaning appointment.

Pre-spotting where necessary.


Pre-conditioning of the carpet fibre – this step helps more soils to break free of their grip on carpet fibers, similar to a "soak cycle" when washing dishes or laundry.

Flush carpet with the RX-20 - this tool works in a circular motion flushing soils from the carpet fibre 20-100 times over. The RX-20 provides a far superior cleaning in traffic lanes and highly soiled conditions compared to a standard carpet cleaning wand. It lifts, refreshes, and restores matted & crushed fibres. (However, some select carpet construction & design may not allow for this tool to be used.)


Detailing of all carpeted edges with standard carpet cleaning wand. In order to ensure we get to areas that the RX-20 is not designed for, we use a more agile tool to detail around the edges to ensure we 'do not cut the corners’!


Post-spotting - as needed, if needed.

Repositioning of large furniture and protect legs with clear invisible tabs. Metal legs/frames can leave rust, and wooden legs/frames that have wood stain can leave color marks, if exposed to damp carpet for a given length of time. We place protective barriers between legs/frames and damp carpet to ensure your furniture will not do damage to your carpet.

Groom the Carpet or set the pile. This helps carpet stand up straight after cleaning which not only helps it look fantastic, it facilitates faster drying times.


Speed dry – we often use turbo dryer(s) and will frequently leave them behind to encourage faster drying for your convenience! Dry times can be as little as 1 hour & sometimes up to 4 hours depending on many conditions including: how soiled the carpets were (more dirt = more moisture to remove), exterior humidity conditions, ability to reduce indoor humidity (opening windows, etc), volume of air space vs. volume of humidity indoors (more carpet cleaning done = more humidity to remove for complete drying) and whether fabric protection was applied.


Your Personal Post Inspection & Approval – If you’re not happy, neither are we! Your satisfaction is extremely important to us. Our business rely's on each & every client being so delighted with our service that they refer Crystal Clean to family & friends! Fill in our report card here! Even days after our cleaning, if you have any concerns, be sure to call right away as we aim to please.

You receive our Clean Guarantee– “If it’s not clean – do not pay! It’s that simple!” Keeping in mind that there are things that happen to carpet that are simply not removable by cleaning. We will review any situation with you that appears to be non-removable during our pre-inspection & assessment. Please read the back of our invoices for conditions of our clean guarantee.

Additional Services Available for your consideration:

Pre-vacuuming - this is an essential component of carpet cleaning. Most of our clients prefer to do this themselves, however, if you would like us to - We'd love to do that for you as well!

Showcase Dry Finish in traffic areas – this removes the final ‘film’ of soils on the fiber (helps traffic lanes look brighter) that steam alone cannot remove. This also helps facilitate a faster drying time. Works great on berber carpets bringing out it's natural beauty that other cleaning systems may fail to do. Often we combine this system with our truckmount steam to produce the best possible cleaning results.


"Earth-Friendly"Carpet Protector in walk ways & high traffic lanes. The greatest benefit of protector is that your vacuuming will be more successful (about 35% more dirt will end up in your vacuum because the soils in the carpet are not ‘grabbing’ & ‘sticking’ to the carpet fibre – similar to your Teflon-coated frying pan!) However, just like your frying pans get scratches over time, so do your carpet fibres. Dull traffic lanes are caused from sands & grits that over time scratch fibres, firstly into the protector, and eventually into the fibre itself - which causes traffic lanes. Read our newsletter on (“Traffic Areas…Are they Dirty or Worn?) for more information on how to prevent this premature wear. Regular application of carpet protector in traffic lanes will significantly prolong the life of your carpet!

Lastly, take a moment to check your favorite chair or other furniture as we can touch them up while we are in your home cleaning your carpets. This is so convenient and easy!

Showcase Carpet Cleaning System

Our Showcase Carpet Cleaning System is specifically designed to encourage very fast dry times of about 1 hour. It does a remarkable job at cleaning olefin berber and polyester carpets due to the carpets unique nature compared to other carpet types. Also some situations warrant a more portable system, particularly in the newer multi-floor senior condo's where accessibility is a concern and truckmount just isn't feasible.

In Commercial applications, this system has been outperforming others systems including truckmounts in commercial & industrial carpets. Our customers have been raving about the excellent results that they are seeing.

As you can see by  the diagram, the mechanical action of this system provides a gentle but effective cleaning of the carpet via special pads that are placed between this unit and your carpet.

The first step in this cleaning system is to apply the appropriate cleaning agent for your circumstance. The actual cleaning agents are chosen based on client preference,  individual carpet types & soil conditions. All cleaning agents are environmentally sound, non toxic for human or pets, and safe for our cleaning technicians who use these agents each & every day. Then the mechanical action of the unit produces a scrubbing, massaging and tamping action where dirt & soils are absorbed into the special pads. This is then followed by a complete vacuuming as sandy type soils vibrate to the carpet surface during the tamping action. Generally, our Certified Master Cleaning Technicians will assist in helping you make the best choice of cleaning system for your circumstance as our goal is to provide you with - Absolutely Awesome Cleaning - and nothing less!
