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.

Happy Customers

  • 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 🙂

  • 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.

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.
