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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dazzle Carpet Cleaning provided excellent service at very competitive prices. The technician they sent, Aidan, was punctual, professional and pleasant. He worked on stains until both he and I were satisfied they were removed. The products used were scent-free and dry within a couple of hours. I would definitely use Dazzle services again.

  • 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.

  • My carpets looks brand new! The service was amazing, the people were very polite , the price is complete amazing too! They didnt manage to take out one stain but it almost faded , so I easily removed it with vinegar and it was gone . I feel like I would have to deal with it more difficult if they hadn't remove the stain as much as possible! I always had trouble finding someone who can clean my carpets, but I finally found one that I can trust!

  • 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!
