Improve Air Quality In Your Home: We tend to think of air pollution as a problem that we deal with when we’re outside, exhaust fumes from vehicles, smog on the horizon, it’s easy to see. But what isn’t easy to see is the air pollution that occurs in your own home. Highly fragranced products, mold, and dust can all contribute to poor indoor air quality and related health problems. We at Dazzle Carpet Cleaning want to help you improve the air quality in your home so you can live a cleaner, healthier life. It’s pretty simple –  increase ventilation, get a plant, vacuum regularly, and get a local Vancouver carpet cleaning from a better business bureau accredited company like Dazzle Carpet Cleaning!

Increase Ventilation

There’s a quick and easy fix for minor air quality issues in your home, changing out the air that’s giving you trouble! Stagnant air and humidity are two of the main culprits when it comes to indoor air pollution. Keep indoor doors open to encourage a flow of air through your home and be sure to use exhaust fans whenever you cook or bathe. Even in the colder months, get into the habit of opening the windows for a few minutes once a week. To do this without being wasteful, turn the heat low overnight, and open up the windows for a breath of fresh air when you first wake up. The burst of fresh air will leave you feeling awake and rejuvenated, and you can improve the air quality in your home without being wasteful!

Get a Plant (Or 10)

Not only do plants make a house feel fresher and more lively, they can help improve the air quality in your home too! NASA research suggests that each room in your house should have five to ten plants in it to help purify the air. Certain types of plants are great at improving the air quality in your home. Pothos, ferns, lilies, and spider plants are all great at removing toxins from the air and they’re all relatively easy to care for even for beginners. Be sure to shower the leaves of your plants regularly to remove any accumulated dust. Always take care not to overwater your plants, it’s a surefire way to kill them and it adds to the humidity in your home making it more likely to run into problems with mold. 

Vacuum Regularly (HEPA filter required)

Vacuuming regularly is one of the best things you can do to improve the air quality in your home. But if you don’t have a HEPA grade filter on your vacuum, you could be doing more harm than good. A HEPA filter traps small particles, like bacteria, viruses and other allergens. If you’re vacuuming without one, all that air coming out the back of it is as dirty as the floors you just cleaned combined. Two to four passes on an area counts as a light vacuuming and four to seven passes counts as a thorough cleaning. We suggest one light and one thorough vacuuming per week, more if you have a big family of kids or pets!

Schedule a Yearly Deep Cleaning

The soft surfaces in your home can trap indoor air pollutants and then re-release them when they’re disturbed. For that reason, carpet can be a double edged sword when it comes to ways to improve the air quality in your home. Carpets are one of the most effective air filters in your home. Particles fall into the carpet, become embedded in the fibres and are no longer part of the air you breathe. But if you aren’t getting your carpets cleaned regularly, these particles can build up, multiply and then make their way back into the air. When it comes to carpet cleaning in Vancouver, put your trust in a local professional carpet cleaner that uses botanical based cleaners that won’t give off harmful VOCs. Our hot water extraction technique ensures your carpets are completely sanitized every time and we only use eco-friendly cleaning products that release no VOCs and are safe for your kids and pets.

  • 5 star review  Showed up when they were supposed to - I have had too much trouble with other companies no shows. Tech Aiden did a great job, asking questions as needed and letting me know of problems spots. Now that everything is dry, all the carpets look glossy and clean. I will be calling them again for future cleaning.

  • 5 star review  I used Dazzle Carpet Cleaning for the first time this week and am super impressed with the service and quality of work. After my previous carpet cleaner retired, I found Dazzle by searching carpet cleaners on the internet. I feel lucky to have found such a fantastic company first try. Kiera is very organized setting up the appointment and reminders and making sure I knew when the technician was arriving. Rob and his assistant cleaned the carpets. Rob is a very informed and talented professional. He ensured an excellent clean of my carpets and care of my walls and corners. I am very impressed and will call Dazzle in the future. I am also happy to support a small, local business.

  • 5 star review  We had our carpet cleaned by them when my baby is three months old. They use plant based solution so it’s baby and pets friendly. Carpet got cleaned very well except one spot was stained with oil which came back to the surface after couple days which was exactly what they told us what might happen since it’s oil. Other than that, the carpet looks fresh and clean and they were able to remove couple of tough stains left by our dog. Will definitely use them again!
