Keeping a clean home can seem like an endless task – there’s so much to do! It always seems like just when you’re getting a hold on things, the kids discover a new arts and crafts project where more muck seems to make it on to your floors than on the paper.

But don’t fret, at Dazzle CC we’re here to help you with a list of our favourite house cleaning tips. If it’s all just too much, and you’re ready to throw in the towel, just give us a call  at 604-802-8500 and we can come get your carpets, tiles and grout, and even your driveway and walkway cleaned while you put your feet up and relax ideally with a cold beverage in hand.

House Cleaning Tips

How to Stop 80% of Soiling

Did you know that it takes 12 steps on a relatively clean surface to dislodge dirt from your shoes? Your driveway and the walkway up to your front door can be a great place to lose this soil if they’re kept clean. However, if your driveway and walkway are soiled, they won’t properly remove the dirt from your shoes meaning it’s going to make its way into the entrance of your home. From there, it’s very likely that it will make it’s way into the rest of your home. To prevent this, the first of our house cleaning tips is cleaning your driveway and sidewalk at least once a year.

Walk Off Mats

One of the best house cleaning tips we can offer is to invest in some walk off mats for the entry points of your home. We recommend a rough, bristley mat with a brush-like feel for outside of the door to brush off your shoes before entering your home. For inside, something machine washable is great, that way, it’s easy to ensure that it stays clean enough to remove the soiling from your shoes. Be sure to wash both mats regularly to prevent resoiling of your shoes.

House Cleaning Tips

Vacuum and Sweep Regularly

Most soiling can be easily removed if you get to it before it works it’s way into the surfaces of your home. By vacuuming your carpets 1-2 times per week, you keep the carpet fibres free of small particles like sand and dust. When those particles build up in your carpets it can act like a sandpaper, removing the luster of the fibres of your carpet and leaving permanent traffic marks in the areas you walk most regularly. That’s why one of our best house cleaning tips is just to get out that vacuum at least once or twice a week.

Your Flooring Affects Each Other

If you vacuum regularly but leave your tiled floors uncleaned, there will be some soil transfer from one to the other. Another one of the house cleaning tips we have to suggest is to first find out how soiled your tile floors are. Look for an area under some long-standing furniture or in a corner that isn’t walked on often and note the difference between these grout lines and the heavier traffic areas. If they look similar, a simple mop will do, if there’s a big difference in colour, it’s time for a professional deep cleaning of your tile and grout.

House Cleaning Tips

Let Your Soap Sit

Once of the easiest house cleaning tips involves you taking a break in the middle of your cleaning. Since soap works by making a more attractive bond for soil particles than the floor or surface it’s on, let the soap sit for 5 minutes. This will ensure the bond between the soap and soiling will be stronger than the bond between the soiling and the floor. Once you’ve taken a break, come back and finish the job, you’ll be so surprised at the difference just 5 minutes can make.

Now that we’ve let you in on some of our favourite house cleaning tips, you’re set up for success! But even with these tips, getting a professional cleaning once a year for your carpets, tile and grout, and driveway and sidewalk is the best way to ensure your home is a clean one. When that time comes, reach out to Dazzle CC, you can call the office directly at 604-802-8500, book online, or even DM us on instagram. However you reach out to us, you’re sure to get a friendly response in return. We want to help you have a cleaner, healthier, happier home!

  • Aiden professionally cleaned a couple of our large area rugs and our sofa. He was very nice, very professional, and did a great job! The most important thing to me was to use a company that used cleaning products safe for my baby and my two dogs, and that’s what this company uses. Not only that, but they’re eco-friendly. I was thinking there would still be some lingering smell from the cleaning solution, but I didn’t smell anything at all which made me feel confident my baby and pets wouldn’t be breathing anything toxic as promised. We will definitely be using Dazzle again 🙂

  • I called on Monday to have my carpets cleaned. I was given an appointment for Wednesday between 10:00 and 12:00. 11:15 my buzzer went. A very nice young man ( Aiden ) came to my door. I was very impressed with him the moment he came in the door. He told me where he was going to start and finish. I had some very bad stains and he was able to get them all out. The price quoted to me was spot on, there were no hidden fees. You don't need to look any further just book now with Dazzle. Rita Robinson

  • Bernard and his team are very professional. They don’t leave the job until you’re satisfied. I had some tough stains to get out and was surprised that they were able to get a lot of it out. I will definitely keep their number handy and use them again in the future!!

  • I noticed the Dazzle Carpet Cleaning van at my neighbours and gave them a call to see if they could clean my place too. Thankfully Bernard was able to make a switch and fit me in! Soon after, Aidan came to my door to assess what needed to be cleaned and I could see that he was enthusiastic about stain removal! Aidan is friendly and professional and did a great job carefully moving furniture around. He thoroughly cleaned my large sectional sofa, the living room carpet and even got the blueberry stain out of my kitchen chair! I highly recommend Aidan as he clearly has confidence in his own skills and demonstrates pride in his work. I am very happy with the results!

  • Aiden was on time, polite, and very professional. Our kid drew on the carpet and spilled milk on it which we all thought wasn’t gonna go away, but Aiden made it look new. Would totally recommend

  • From start to finish, I am so impressed and pleased with Dazzle's Carpet Cleaning service. Kiera was kind and accommodating when booking the appointment and promptly followed up right until the technician arrived at our door. Mattias, the technician, was pleasant and thorough, and he took care to make sure our carpets were to our liking. The carpet dried quickly and was definitely clean afterwards! We have had different companies in over the years, but I think we are going to stick with Dazzle from now on.

  • We are extremely happy with the carpet cleaning and vinyl waxing job, Rob and his team from Dazzle has done for us in our office space. They were quick, efficient and more than accommodating to us for our needs. The outcome was fantastic! I would highly recommend and intend to use them again in the future.

  • I recently had Dazzle clean my parents carpet after my dogs had multiple accidents in their home. They did an amazing job removing the pet stains and their customer service skills went beyond my expectations. They were extremely knowledgeable about carpets and area rugs, and at they end of their service, they gave my mother a sachet filled with cleaning and stain removing goodies to help maintain the wonderful job they did cleaning their carpets. I highly recommended going with Dazzle, if they can clean the mess my dogs made on my parents white carpets, they can clean anything.
