On the Eleventh Day of Christmas...

12 Days 2018 REC BOLD DAY 11.jpg




On the eleventh day of Christmas,

my true love sent to me,

Eleven Pipers Piping…



Eleven pipers piping the news about NoSpot Cleaning Solutions!

That’s right!

After all those days of Christmas making feasts, hosting visitors, and partying it up at New Years, the cleaning Gods will shine upon your house and welcome January with a fresh and clean start.

16174465_1378810968825506_6029751323390317365_n.jpg

Inspired by their mutual passion for providing an upscale cleaning service for families and working professionals, Devin and Kelsey joined forces in 2014 to create NoSpot Cleaning.

“My love of family, merged with Devin’s passion for delivering a high-end service, makes NoSpot Cleaning a meticulous, trustworthy and stress-eliminating experience!” - explains Kelsey.

Devin and Kelsey understand that when tedious tasks like home and business cleaning are properly handled, not only will you take back the time to do the things you really love, it will make your day better too!

And their commitment to clean is in the process.

“First of all, we use microfibre cloths to clean. NoSpot has hundreds of microfibre cloths and we bring a full bag to each home, eliminating the need to reuse even one. Microfiber cloths in themselves are a cleaning phenomenon, as they trap the dirt in their many fibres and don’t release it until they are washed.”

The result?

With a full bucket of warm water, a drop or two of Dawn dish soap, and a handful of microfibre towels, they get down to it!. As they clean, they ring out a cloth and use it to clean a small area. After that cloth is dirty, they throw it into the “dirty bag” and retrieve another one, continuing the process. By using this method they not only reduce cross contamination, but they avoid making the water dirty, by rinsing and reusing.

NoSpot Cleaning offers a Move Out Clean, A Realtor Clean, A Regular House Clean and a One Time Cleanse to residents of Calgary and Cochrane, AB. Check out their website for more information.
