Lengthen the Lifespan of your Carpets

Carpets are a lovely addition to any home, they add a rich, plush feel to any room and make you feel warm and cozy on the coldest of days. But like most good things, they can’t last forever. Carpets should be replaced every 10-15 years in a family home, but replacing your carpets can be really pricey and a total headache. At Dazzle CC we want to help you protect your investment and keep your carpets looking beautiful for years to come. Did you know you can lengthen the lifespan of your carpets with a few easy changes? Here’s how:

Leave the Dirt at the Door

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and when it comes to the ways to lengthen the lifespan of your carpets, keeping them from getting soiled in the first place is key. Invest in entryway mats to keep the outside messes from making their way into your home. Be sure to wipe your feet when you come from outside to ensure you’re not getting muddy footprints on your beautiful carpets. Even better, make sure to always remove your outdoor footwear at the door especially in the muddy months of the year. If you’re able to keep dirt from getting into your home and onto your carpets, not only will they they look nicer, they’ll last longer!

Vacuum Regularly

It’s inevitable that some dust and dirt will make its way into your home and onto carpets, and that where our second tip comes in. Keeping up with a regular vacuuming schedule is incredibly important, especially in high traffic areas and if you have kids or pets. Even the smallest bits of dirt and dust are made up of sharp particles that will act like sandpaper and wear your carpet down over time. When your carpets aren’t regularly vacuumed, the high traffic areas can be permanently damaged by that wearing action. So, to lengthen the lifespan of your carpets, bust out that vacuum at least twice a week and give your carpets a good hoovering. If you

Rotate and Rearrange

Rearranging your furniture is not only a fun way to freshen up the look of your home, it can also help lengthen the lifespan of your carpets! So, fuel your inner interior designer and get a little work out in too! When you rearrange the placement of your furniture, you’re redirecting the traffic patterns in your home and that can help give your carpets a much needed break. If you’re not able to move the furniture around, you can help protect the longevity of your carpets by using area rugs to protect the more high traffic areas of your home, especially in the wetter, muddier months. Area rugs can really help reduce the amount of wear that your carpets can experience, and are a great way to change the feel of a room too!

Spot Clean Spills and Stains

Nobody’s perfect, spills and stains are bound to happen, especially if you have kids or pets, both of which seem to be magnets for such things. But if you want to lengthen the lifespan of your carpets, it’s important to take action quickly when spills and stains happen. Different messes require different clean-up processes, but the best first step is to check that your carpet or rug is cleanable with water, then try to remove as much of it as you can by blotting the area with a clean damp cloth. Work your way from the outside of the stain inwards to make sure you’re not making a bigger mess than you started with. Once you have the majority of the stain blotted up, take a deep breath – you’ve done great. Now give us a call at 604-802-8500, we can guide you the rest of the way.

Professional Cleaning

The very best thing you can do to lengthen the lifespan of your carpets is to get into a routine of yearly professional cleanings. Regular vacuuming is important, but a routine deep cleaning with hot water extraction cleaning is a must. At Dazzle CC we use powerful botanical based spot treatments and pre-cleansing solution that help to release tough stains and dirt that a vacuum cleaner just can’t do. Our products are eco-friendly, pet-friendly and kid-friendly but when it comes to tough stains, they sure pack a punch. We finish the cleaning with a hot water extraction process that removes the cleansers along with the dust and dirt and sanitizes the carpet too! Say good-bye to germs and bacteria that have been hiding in the depths of your carpet, and say hello to Dazzle Carpet Cleaning.

Now that you’re well-versed in the ways to lengthen the lifespan of your carpets, you can be sure you’re protecting your investment and helping your family live a cleaner, healthier life. If you make small changes around your home and get on a schedule of yearly professional carpet cleaning, you’ll be able to enjoy your carpets for years to come.

Happy Customers

  • 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.

  • Smokers these guys are busy! Called wanting to get my place cleaned this Saturday before my lease was up, the receptionist kindly explained that they were fully booked but took the time to tell me all about their services and prices even still. Great discounts for first time customers. Even though Dazzle could not book me in I'm still happy I called. Good customer service is hard to come by these days. I'm an old timer who believes that the person who answers the phone is the face of the business. I gave the receptionist my information and she will be calling me back to set up carpet cleaning for my new place when I'm moved out! Wow! Still giving me 20% off even though the discount ends this month. If this is just their reception, can't wait to see what kind of job cleaning they do. Will update after my appointment. Kiera (i before e, like you told me!) keep up the good work. You made an old man very happy by chatting with him on the phone today!

  • 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 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!

  • Just had the Dazzle team clean my carpets yesterday, they did an amazing job and my carpets have never looked better. I will use their services in the future again! Very professional.

  • 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.

  • 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 🙂
