3 Steps After Water Damage Austin Texas

Flood Damge

Flood Damge

With the recent devastation in Texas, homeowners are having to deal firsthand with water damage. Homes are flooded with water so high it’s historical- and roads, too. Water damage is the cause of mold, loss of important possessions, structural damage, and the list goes on and on… sadly. We were voted best in water damage in Austin. If you’re experiencing water damage in your home, give the professionals a call immediately, and follow these three initial steps:

 

Turn Off the Power

 

Here’s what you should do first: Immediately cut off the gas and electricity from its main source. This is for rather obvious safety matters. Luckily, you’re safer around puddles and leaks (turning off the power isn’t as necessary here), but if you’re already in standing water, don’t touch it; it could be dangerous. Consult with an electrician first!

 

Check for Standing Water

 

As soon as the scene is safe, survey the damage and check for any standing water, and then begin to pump it out. Standing water is notorious for causing damage and growing mold. Wear safety masks and of course, high quality boots. Flood waters are filled with debris and dangerous substances that we shouldn’t be wading around in, but unfortunately, sometimes we have to. We are #1 in water damage in Austin, Texas!

From dusting, to steam cleaning, there are many ways to keep your carpet clean. Call The Steam Team of Austin, Texas for professional rug cleaning today. 

 

Vacuum on a Routine Basis

 

Dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming your floor is essential! Do it on the regular, and you’ll be set. It’ll also make chore day that much easier on you- since you’ll have kept up with it the entire time. And don’t forget about those baseboards; they collect so much dust over time.

 

Occasional Steam Cleaning

 

Steam cleaning is a way of cleaning that helps to eradicate dirt, grime, allergens, and other nasty substances from deep within the fibers of carpet. It uses nothing but pressurized water and high temperatures! No leftover residue, no chemicals, nothing. If you’re going to have your carpet deep cleaned, this is the way you want to go. Our location at 9901 Burnet Rd. Austin, Texas has a state-of-the art rug cleaning facility.

 

Develop Helpful Habits

 

Sometimes, we just have to change the way we do things! Try developing helpful habits for your carpet like removing your shoes at the door, or putting a mat at the entrances to your home! Door mats help to pick up the dirt and dust we bring in, and if we aren’t wearing our shoes around the house, then we aren’t tracking dirt around!

 

Keep dirt and grime away from your carpet by keeping up these habits, and of course by steam cleaning every so often. Call The Steam Team today for any of your carpet cleaning needs! Your carpet will be so clean by the time we’re finished, you’ll be amazed at the results of our professional carpet cleaning.

The Best Way to Remove Stains From Your Rugs

Screen Shot 2016-09-23 at 7.27.27 AM.png

If you’re a pet owner, you know firsthand the struggle it is to keep carpet clean! No matter how much we love our pets, they can really make a mess. They track in mud from outside, “go to the bathroom,” in all of the wrong places, and sometimes get sick in inconvenient places, too. So naturally, the carpet takes a beating! Luckily, today we have the best tips for removing these stains. And don’t forget- The Steam Team is always available to professionally clean your carpet, and restore it to its original condition!

 

Mud Stains

 

When Fido tracks in mud, you’ll first want to scrape away all of the dried pieces. A vacuum is the best equipment to use after you’re finished scraping. Next, create a cleaning solution! Squirt about ¼ tsp of dishwashing liquid into half a cup of warm water. Once the solution suds, dab it onto the stain, and rinse clean with fresh water.

 

Urine Stains

 

Catch these stains ASAP! Dog urine that is left to dry not only leaves behind a stain and odor, but also allows for bacteria to spread. Use paper towels to soak up wet urine, and place something heavy on top to make sure you get it all. Then, with an enzymatic cleaner, wet the area, and blot away the stain. You could also use a mixture of vinegar and baking soda, or club soda!

 

Vomit Stains

 

After you’ve picked up the bulk of the vomit, spray the area with cold water. Then, saturate a cleaning sponge in your trusty solution and dab the stain until it’s disappeared. Afterward, you’ll probably want to throw that sponge away!

 

The Steam Team is here for you through all of your carpet needs. Whether it’s removing a stain, or deep-cleaning your entire house, we’re the ones for the job! Just give us a call today.

Clean Your House in 3 Easy Steps Tips By The Steam Team of Austin Texas

Cleaning Tips

Cleaning Tips

When was the last time you cleaned your mattress? Can you remember? Most of us can’t, because we’ve never done it before. But whether you’re a newbie to this process, or you’ve just bought a new mattress that you’d like to freshen up, we have three easy steps to thoroughly cleaning your mattress!

 

Step One: Strip the Bed and Vacuum

 

Of course, you’ll want to completely strip your bed and toss your bed linens into the washing machine. Once your bed is completely clear, vacuum your mattress with a (clean) wide brush attachment. Be thorough, scanning back and forth from every edge. This helps to remove, dust mites, dirt, and debris from your mattress.

 

Step Two: Sprinkle Cleaning Mixture Over Mattress

 

Here, baking soda is our best friend! Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda through a sifter, and onto the mattress. Be liberal, and make sure you’ve covered the entire area. This helps to clean and deodorize the surface. You can also add six drops of your favorite essential oil to the mixture for a fresh, relaxing scent. Lavender, anyone?

 

Step Three: Vacuum Excess Cleaning Mixture

 

If you have all the time in the world, you can leave the mixture on your mattress for several hours. However, thirty minutes will also suffice. Thirty minutes is plenty of time to absorb odors, moisture, and break down acids. Finally, vacuum the mixture and all of the grime that it’s brought out!


And there you have it friends: three easy steps to cleaning and refreshing your mattress! Don’t forget to do it periodically. Our mattresses get tons of use! And did you know- a mattress can also be steam cleaned? That’s right! For all of your steam cleaning needs, contact The Steam Team! We’re happy to help out wherever we can and we are also hiring in Austin

The Best Way to Treat Furniture

Furniture Cleaning 

Furniture Cleaning 

 

Now, we all know that nothing lasts forever, but we sure can try, can’t we? We can have a little hope that the brand new leather furniture set we just brought home can, well, last a lifetime. Leather is certainly known for its longevity, but also its easy care, and its comfort. So let’s talk about a few ways in which we can help leather last as long as we’d like for it to!

 

Properly Condition Leather

 

Condition leather furniture every six to twelve months. Definitely make sure you’re using the correct product, as leather is a sensitive material and not all pieces of furniture require the same cleaner or conditioner. There should be a tag on your furniture that informs you of what to use!

 

Clean with the Right Tools

 

In addition to your vacuum cleaner’s handy upholstery attachment, you’ll want to use a soft, dry cloth to clean your leather furniture. Avoid harsh tools like bristle brushes.

 

Blot Spills - Don’t Wipe Them

 

This is a lesser known fact! Wiping up a spill or stain may cause the moisture to spread, and we want to absorb it! So blot each spill carefully; you can try this on other materials like carpet and fabric, too.

 

Vacuum Nooks and Crannies

 

You can easily use an upholstery attachment to vacuum dust, dirt, and debris from the corners of your furniture. As for the surface of your furniture, use a damp, soft cloth to wipe off dirt and other everyday messes!

 

For all of your leather care and conditioning needs, The Steam Team is here for you. We’ve been serving the Austin community for over a decade, and we love it! If your leather upholstered furniture needs a good deep cleaning or a thorough conditioning, you know who to call!

How Water Damage Can Affect All Aspects of Your Home In Austin TX

Sometimes it seems like the only time we think about water is when we don’t have enough, or we have too much. But we have to think of it. Because when it comes to our homes, whether it’s an inch of water, or a foot of water standing between those walls, you’re at risk for damage and sometimes, danger. We’re going to explain several ways in which water damage affects your home, and what you can do about it! We are the Austin, Texas cleaning company to call for emergencies. Call 512-451-8326 today

 

Personal Belongings

 

The aftermath of a flood, tropical storm, or any other disaster can lead to water damage that can soil your carpeting, rot your walls, and ruin your personal belongings. It can be a costly, nightmarish experience… but mostly costly. In addition to your personal items being damaged, water also damages walls, flooring- especially wood, and other areas of the house.

 

Mold Growth

 

Mold thrives in damp, moist areas. If you’ve recently had any trouble with water damage, your home could be the perfect place for mold to grow and spread! This poses health risks, since many people are highly allergic to mold. But don’t panic; The Steam Team is on your side, and we have plenty of experience removing mold from homes!

Screen Shot 2017-10-01 at 9.35.01 AM.png

 

Insurance Issues

Always call your insurance company immediately. Water damage that is left untreated for weeks causes mold to grow and fester, which causes health problems as we previously mentioned. If anyone develops a health issue as a result of the water damage, the insurance company is more likely to hold the property owner liable. We don’t want that!

 

Water damage can lead to a serious economic loss, but The Steam Team is there for you, rooting for the best outcome even in the midst of a natural disaster! But no matter the cause of water damage in your home, it’s serious- so give us a call immediately!

We’ve all done it at sometime: spilled our coffee, dropped our wine glass, or felt that pen explode and ink flow all over new top. It’s inevitable; accidents happen! But the evidence of said accidents doesn’t have to be permanent. We can remove the coffee, tea, and other dark stains from our flooring and furniture with these easy tips!

 

Coffee

 

For both carpet and upholstery, start by blotting the excess coffee with a clean, dry cloth. Next, pre-soak the stain in a solution of one quart warm water, ½ tsp of dishwashing detergent, and 1 tbsp of white vinegar. Let it soak for 15 minutes. Finally, rinse the stained area with warm water, and dry thoroughly!

 

Tea

 

For tea stains on carpet, mix a solution that contains two ounces of white vinegar and four ounces of warm water. Spray the mixture onto the stain, and blot clean. It’s important not to scrub the area, as you may end up spread the stain!

 

Ink

 

For those broken pens and nasty ink stains, blot rubbing alcohol or hairspray onto the stain. Blot until clean, changing the cloth periodically. Be patient- it may take some time. Once the area is clean, dab a clean cloth onto the area that’s been soaked in lukewarm water.

 

Wine

 

For wine stains, try concocting a solution of one tbsp white vinegar and one tbsp of dishwashing liquid. Blot the stain clean, repeating the process as needed. You can use either a clean washcloth, or clean paper towels; either one works!

What Is Hot Water Extraction By The Steam Team of Austin

Professional Rug Cleaning

Professional Rug Cleaning

So, what is hot water extraction? Well, it’s just another way to say steam cleaning. The two terms are often used interchangeably. So today we’re going to review steam cleaning (hot water extraction) and its many benefits to homeowners- because there are so many! And of course, this is barely scratching the surface; there are many other reasons as to why we should steam clean, and only so much time to cover them! Call 512-451-8326 for your Austin Texas rug cleaner!

 

Hot water extraction...

 

Cleans Without Chemicals

 

Simply put, steam cleaning cleans without the use of any chemicals. All that it requires is high water pressure, and extreme heat. It easily extracts dirt from carpet, and porous materials like tile and grout.  This not only saves you money on cleaning products, but it doesn’t leave behind any harmful residue or streaking.

 

Cleans Like No Other Method

 

There’s a reason why homeowners prefer steam cleaning over other methods of cleaning. It cleans thoroughly and effectively- without much effort! Mopping takes a lot of back work, much like scrubbing and vacuuming. But a steam cleaner doesn’t require the same kind of physical labor (especially if you let The Steam Team do the work for you- hint hint!).

 

Saves You Time and Money

 

We’ve already mentioned how steam cleaning saves you from having to buy cleaning products (though that is a major plus!). But its effectiveness is also what saves you time! With hot water extraction, you no longer have to re-do cleaning projects; steam cleaning gets it the first time. It provides you with a clean that you can fully trust, and we all know that that’s all we want!

 

Professional steam cleaning companies, like the Steam Team, can help you steam clean just about anything, from carpets, to surfaces, walls, and ceilings! Just give us a call whenever you’re in need! Local cleaning companies. We have been serving Austin for over 40 years. Call 512-451-8326 today.

That’s why we’ve compiled this list of five expert ways to take care of your furniture and upholstery- and what The Steam Team believes is the best way. Read on to discover our secrets!

 

Vacuum Regularly

 

That upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner has never come more in handy! Put it to good use on your upholstery and furniture. It can reach the tough nooks and crannies, underneath the cushions; there are no limits!

Dusting helps take the load off when it comes to cleaning day, and ultimately prevents debris and grime but building up. It also helps to create a healthier atmosphere! Use your upholstery attachment to suction the dust, or a microfiber cloth to do it the old fashioned way.

 

Condition Leather Furniture

 

Just like our skin, leather dries out, and needs to be conditioned periodically. Make sure you’re using the correct product for your furniture (you can check its care label just like you would your favorite tshirt).

 

Become a Stain-Removal Expert

 

Accidents are going to happen no matter what we do, but we can learn how to prepare for them! When it comes to leather furniture, different types of leather are used, and often require a certain cleaner.

 

Steam Cleaning

 

Steam cleaning is, of course, our preferred method. It can safely and effectively remove stains from just about anything- and it doesn’t leave behind any harmful residue (or anything you’ll need to clean up afterward!). The Steam Team has been taking care of leather and upholstery for over a decade, and can restore your furniture to its original condition in a sinch.

How Often Should You Do Cleaning in Austin Texas?

Cleaning Austin

Cleaning Austin

When it comes to keeping carpet and flooring clean and tidy, homeowners wonder how often they should vacuum. The answer comes down to one simple factor: how much foot traffic your carpet endures on a daily basis. Below, we’ll go over a few factors that make a difference in the cleanliness of your carpet, and of course, we’ll tell you how often you should be vacuuming.

 

Typically, carpet should be vacuumed about once a week. But the factors laid out below will mean that you’ll have to vacuum a bit more frequently.

 

Pets

 

Pets certainly play a role in making our carpet more dirty. From muddy paws, to urine and feces stains, it can feel as if you’re constantly cleaning up after them! Vacuum twice a week to pick up the extra dirt and dander that our loving, adorable pets leave behind- and don’t sweat it, as a professional cleaning company can always come in and help out!

 

Children

 

With children running around the house in their dirty shoes (or bare feet), it can be difficult to keep your carpet clean! Vacuum twice weekly, or try teaching your children to leave their dirty shoes at the entrance of your home; this can cut down on the amount of dirt and mud that’s tracked all over your flooring! It’s a good practice.

 

A Crowded Home

 

Are there a lot of people living in your home? Well, there’s nothing wrong with that, but you may be vacuuming more often than you wish! Vacuum 2-3 times a week, depending on the messes your guests make!

 

The Steam Team is a team of trained experts who have many years of experience in professional carpet cleaning. If your carpet is in need of a deep cleaning, don’t hesitate- pick up the phone and give us a call! We’re available 24/7 to help you out!

The Best Way to Elongate the Life of Your Area Rug Austin Texas

area rug cleaning service

Area rugs are made up of the same fibers that make up carpeting. While there are numerous different types of these fibers, they all need to be regularly and properly cared for in order to get the most out of the flooring that you chose. With area rugs, however, there are a few additional things you can do elongate their lifetime. Let’s take a look!

 

Rotate Regularly

 

Contrary to popular belief, there are numerous factors that cause wear and tear on flooring -- not just foot traffic. The easiest way to reduce wear and tear on area rugs is the make sure you’re rotating them regularly since they’re easy to move. Sunlight is a huge factor that fades fabric, especially those vibrant colors on area rugs, rotating will ensure that the whole rug is treated the same and one area doesn’t fade quicker than others.

 

Stay on Top of Stains

 

If a spill occurs, it’s important to tend to it as quickly as possible. The longer your rug sits with the stain, the deeper the stain embeds into its carpet fibers, and the more difficult it is to remove!

 

Water spills should be absorbed and dried as quickly as possible but any other liquid will need to be blotted until all of the excess moisture has been removed.

 

Thorough Deep Clean

 

Although you may vacuum and sweep your area rugs regularly, you’ll still need a more thorough deep clean on occasion. In these instances you can always call your local steam cleaning company. Companies like The Steam Team will know exactly how to handle your area rugs and will have them looking brand new without any hassle at all.

Rug Cleaning

 

As long as your rug is small enough to pick up, you can start by beating it clean. That’s right- this is a great way to take out your frustrations! Shake your rug outside first, and then hang it on a clothesline for a good beating. Afterward, bring it back inside to finish cleaning it by vacuuming.

Also check for the appropriate temperature to avoid damaging the fibers of your rugs!

Dry Dusting

Tub Washing

Fill the tub with warm water and a mixture of your favorite cleaning detergent, and scrub each slat from side to side. It certainly requires a lot of back work, but definitely gives you a more effective clean than merely dusting!

How Does Mold Affect Your Home?

Water Damage and Mold Remediation 

Water Damage and Mold Remediation 

 

Have you been smelling a damp, musty scent around your home? There’s a chance that scent could be the result of a growing mold problem- a problem that definitely needs to be addressed! Unfortunately, most of the mold that is toxic to our health is invisible to the naked eye, so we have to rely on our other senses. And if you can see the mold growth- well, you’d better tackle that issue right away! Let’s talk about mold and how it affects our home, health, and what we should do about it. Mold remediation Austin Texas

 

Mold in the Home

 

Mold thrives in warm, humid environments. There are several places around the home that it could fester, such as a dark and dingy kitchen cabinet, a constantly-damp bathroom, or even inside that bread box of yours! It doesn’t take much time to begin growing (maybe around twenty four hours), and most of the air we breathe in contains mold spores that are harmful to our health! How exactly do those mold spores affect your health, might you ask?
