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  Dazzle was one of the few places I called looking to have my sofa cleaned. In the end, I chose this company simply because the person over the phone was polite and professional. Aiden was the technician that arrived at my home, and not only did he get the nasty stains out of my sofa, but he gave me cleaning related knowledge that I was unaware of. He was also super kind, polite, and professional. I’ll definitely be sticking with Dazzle for future services!

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  I’ve used this company 2 times now and am very impressed. The office staff made sure to confirm scheduled appointment time a day before visit, and also on the day to tell me that a service agent was on his way. When the Dazzle Carpet service agent arrived he was very professional, polite and got to work right away. I was very satisfied with the quality of work. I will always use this company going forward.

  • 5 star review  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 🙂

  • 5 star review  I had the Dazzle come in to have our carpet cleaned prior to the arrival of our newborn. It was a very last minute decision and initially, I was hesitant about cleaning the carpet as I remembered it would usually leave a strong chemical smell and I had to ventilate the whole house for at least a couple days. We are a family of two young toddlers and a newborn on the way and I was not sure if I wanted to risk having the wet and chemical soaked carpet only a couple weeks before my due date. But I realized I worried for nothing. I was able to get an appointment promptly and get the work done in a matter of a few days. Rob and his assistant did a fantastic job! There was absolutely no need for me to worry about the smell or ventilation as there was none and the carpet were spotlessly clean. They convinced me that I could have a clean, if not cleaner, carpet without having to use strong chemical filled products. I would highly recommend to anybody but especially, for families with young children like ours who can appreciate their plant based products that are safer to little ones. All in all, I am 120% satisfied with their work and would love to have them come back to clean our carpet in the future again!

  • 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.
