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.

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  Bernard and his team are very professional. They don’t leave the job until you’re satisfied. I had some tough stains to get out and was surprised that they were able to get a lot of it out. I will definitely keep their number handy and use them again in the future!!

  • 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  Aiden was on time, polite, and very professional. Our kid drew on the carpet and spilled milk on it which we all thought wasn’t gonna go away, but Aiden made it look new. Would totally recommend
