What is Green Carpet Cleaning?
Simply…green carpet cleaning means that all our products are certified green and that every team member adheres to the best environmental practices on every job. At CRS, we know it is the sum total of products and practices that bring a positive influence to the world we live in.
Our corporate colours represent an awareness of how we work. CRS is committed to maintaining and improving practices that minimize the impact on our environment.
Carpet cleaning by hot-water extraction (aka "carpet steam cleaning")
If you need green carpet cleaning in Vancouver, the Lower Mainland or BC consider CRS. Since 1994, we have provided environmentally friendly carpet cleaning that not only keeps carpets clean, but helps keep BC green. Our EcoLogo approved green products, solutions and responsible practices make our team the green choice for carpet cleaning and carpet maintenance.
Green Carpet Cleaning Products - Ecologo Certification
Green carpet cleaning should be more than just a buzz phrase or marketing ploy — "green washing". Many carpet cleaning companies say they are green, but what exactly do they mean?
There are many products on the market that claim to be natural or green, but claims are not facts. This is where standards and green seals of approval from credible organizations help clarify the term.
EcoLogo is one such seal of approval. Started by the government of Canada in 1988, and recently acquired by UL Environment — a safety science company, EgoLogo is now recognized worldwide as a trusted GREEN seal of approval. EcoLogo isn't just a sticker used to sell a product as enviromentally friendly, it's a green certification that means a product's impact on the environment has undergone rigorous scientific testing and auditing to prove compliance with stringent environmental performance standards.
CRS uses a variety of EcoLogo approved eco-friendly carpet cleaning products.
