Happy Friday, Vancouver! We at Dazzle CC know how hard it can be to keep your carpets clean, so we’ve made a list of our favourite tips and tricks to help keep your home looking and feeling its best.

Blot Stains, Don’t Rub Them

The most important of the tips and tricks  – Blot, Don’t Rub! Use a clean dry cloth to gently dab the spill, never use a rubbing motion as it pushes the spill deep into the fibres increasing the chance of it becoming a permanent stain. Work from the edges of the spill inwards to stop the spread.

Use Diluted Vinegar

If the spill was acidic in nature (tomato juice, coffee, tea), use an acidic remover. After blotting up the majority of the  spill, make a dilution of 4 parts water to one part vinegar in a spray bottle, spray a little of the solution on the area and blot again, repeat this process until the spill is gone.

Baking Soda for Greasy Messes

After blotting up the majority of the spill, sprinkle baking soda over the soiled area. Let that sit for 30 minutes and it will absorb the grease. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove the baking soda and the grease stain with it.

Keep Away from Store-bought Stain Removers

Many store-bought stain removers contain very acidic or very basic ingredients, neither of which are good for the longevity of your carpet. Some even contain bleaches and peroxides that can permanently discolor your carpet.

Freeze-Dried Gum

Gum on a carpet can be a total disaster, but it doesn’t have to be. Get an ice cube from the freezer and place it over the gum for 30-45 seconds, use a spoon to pry up the gum and a pair of scissors to snip just below the gum, being careful to not remove too much.

Eliminate Pet Hair with a Squeegee

That rubber squeegee isn’t just for windows and shower doors anymore! Use a clean squeegee on your carpet or upholstery to quickly and easily remove all kinds of pet hair.

Use Area Rugs to Protect High Traffic Areas

If you notice traffic patterns occurring on your carpets, use an area rug to protect your investment. You can remove them when you have company to show off your luxurious and well preserved carpet underneath.

Establish a Cleaning Schedule

One of our easiest tips and tricks is to make a regular vacuuming schedule to protect the longevity of your carpets. Dirt and other particles trapped in the fibres of the carpet can have a sand-papering effect on the fibres, so removing them as soon as possible is important.

Deep-Clean Regularly

Even with regular vacuuming, there will inevitably be dirt and dust in the carpet that you just can’t remove yourself. We suggest one to two deep cleanings per year for a family of 4. Our hot water extraction method uses eco-friendly cleaners and water heated to 230 degrees fahrenheit to clean and rinse your carpets down to the base of the fibres, leaving you with cleaner carpets and better air quality in your home.

Invest in Protection

We offer Ultra-Protection for carpets and upholstery, to help prevent future spills becoming stains. With our specially designed polymer based protector, your carpet fibres are wrapped in a protective layer all the way down the length of the fibres. This prevents spills from penetrating the fibres and makes them a snap to clean up.

  • 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

  • Dazzle came to do carpet cleaning in my apartment building which turned out incredible. Our building is very old and the carpets were very saturated. You can see the lightness in color now and they no longer smell. I also utilized them to clean my carpet, bar stools, and couch on the same day. They did an excellent job. Highly recommend! Very knowledgeable
