About us2018 Greater Westside Board of Trade Silver Award Winners for Sustainable Green Business!
Enviro Dry Carpet Maintenance is owned and operated by Doug Howie and Nancy Cooke. We relocated from Cranbrook to Kelowna with our Yorkshire Terrier Maddie in 2016; Doug had been involved in the cleaning industry since 1983. Over 20 years ago Doug set up Eco Dry Carpet Maintenance in Calgary to provide an eco friendly carpet, grout floor cleaning, and sand less wood floor refurbishing systems. Upon moving to Cranbrook, we set up a company to provide the same quality service to area residents and businesses.
Prior to moving we were successful in setting up franchise-like operations in Lloydminster and Calgary. All of our cleaning and maintenance systems are minimum moisture using no city water, and there is no black water waste discharged into the sewer system. Our company philosophy is to provide an eco friendly service as well as superior customer service. We stand behind the HOST system as being one of the best carpet and floor cleaning methods. Our technicians are fully trained and they provide excellent service to our customers.
More about our business:
At Enviro-Dry, we use the HOST system, as we felt it was the best system in the world to do the job right, while also being environmentally friendly.

Is HOST environmentally friendly and safe?
Absolutely! HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner is Green Seal Certified. It meets the Green Seal environmental standard for industrial and institutional cleaners based on its reduced human and environmental toxicity and reduced volatile organic compound content. HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner requires no special disposal and can be composted. And, HOST is the first dry carpet cleaner to receive USDA BioPreferred certification via ASTM test method D6866-05.
The HOST System of applying HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner to the carpet, brushing it through the carpet and then Vacuuming up the HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner removes dirt and reduces allergens. Research studies have shown that one cleaning with the HOST System using HOST Machine reduces: dust mites by 78%, dust mite allergen by 75%, cat allergen by 85%, mold spores by 85%. Even more recent tests with the HOST Liberator and Freestyle machines show improved allergen extraction: dust mite allergen by 89% and mold spores by 97%.
HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner is WoolSafe Approved which means that the product is effective, has low resoiling characteristics, is low in alkalinity, has no bleaching agents, no optical brighteners, is nonflammable, nonhazardous, environmentally responsible and has clear and concise use directions.
Unlike wet cleaning methods, HOST does not leave carpets wet with dirty wastewater that can lead to mold and cause health problems. In fact, HOST helps remove mold from carpets. Water extractors generate large amounts of wastewater which burdens sewers and water treatment facilities. Also, water left in the carpet evaporates humidifying buildings and forcing air conditioners and dehumidifiers to run harder and longer. HOST helps to lower energy needs since no water is used, so blowers, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers are not needed.
Is HOST safe for human health?
Yes! HOST contains no dyes, contains no heavy metals, does not become airborne and has low VOC's. HOST is not an eye irritant nor a primary skin irritant and is nontoxic by oral ingestion or by inhalation. HOST is not a WHIMIS Control Product.
