Cleaning Up After the Holidays

The holidays are full of fun and festive activities, some of them more messy than others. Guests parade through our homes, also some more messy than others! Here are quick tips for cleaning up your home after the holidays. We hope they’re helpful!

 

Work From the Top Down

 

When you start to clean up after the holidays, start from the top and work your way downward. This means, don’t start with the flooring, as things might drop onto the floor while you’re cleaning. Start with countertops, furniture, and other surfaces.

 

Steam Clean Counter Tops

 

Who knows what was on those counter tops after holiday festivities? Food, drinks, liquor, dessert, everything… It’s time to get down to business and steam clean them back to their original condition!

 

Organizing

 

Everything has its own place! Slowly but surely, you can put everything back where it belongs and decrease clutter. Once this is done, it’s time to move onto the flooring…

 

Cleaning the Carpets

 

Finally, the bottom: the carpet. After you’ve removed whatever debris may be laying around after the party, give the carpets a good vacuuming. Then, we always recommend steam cleaning to thoroughly remove dust, dirt, dander, and other debris from your carpet fibers. It’s an easy way to restore your carpet to a newer, pristine condition.

 

Calling in the Professionals

 

Sometimes a job is just too big, and we need help from the professionals! There’s no shame in that. A cleaning and restoration company (like The Steam Team) can really help you out! Consider hiring the professionals for a solid deep cleaning after the holidays!

Office Cleaning Around the Holidays

It’s one of the greatest times of the year- for some of us, the greatest time of the year- the holidays. With holidays usually comes time with family, days off from work, and lots and lots of food. The office stays dark, the door stays closed, and dust begins to collect for just a few days- but, on top of the previous dust, and the previous dust, and the previous dust that’s settled far into the carpeting beneath each desk. What better way to spend these quiet days where no one is around than to hire a professional company to come in and thoroughly clean your flooring, furniture, window treatments, and check for anything abnormal (like damage or mold under sinks, etc.).

Does Carpet Padding Help Your Carpet?

In short, the answer is yes, carpet padding can tremendously help and even protect your carpet at times. Many homeowners don’t realize how important its impact may be, as it’s usually the first to go when building a home or installing new flooring and trying to cut costs. However, with ineffective carpet padding, your carpeting doesn’t have enough support. The better the support, the longer the flooring lasts!

 

So, let’s talk carpet padding for a minute to help you understand the best decision to make when installing your new carpet flooring. There are many variables to consider when it comes to flooring; the area of the home, the amount of traffic it’s going to endure, and the amount of messes you expect. The padding beneath the carpeting needs to be chosen with these factors in mind so you choose the right padding for your home and family.

 

The Benefits of Carpet Padding

Besides offering additional support for carpet and carpet fibers, the padding beneath carpet serves to protect the subfloor, cushion the flooring to offer more comfort, and absorb spills or messes (and keep them from damaging the subfloor).

 

Having a high-quality padding beneath your carpet, allows the carpet fibers to absorb less of the shock from the force of when people (or animals) walk and move around. Without enduring additional force, the fibers are protected from extensive damage, allowing them to last longer.

 

Replacing the carpeting or other flooring typically only occurs a few times throughout the lifetime of a home (of course this depends on a variety of factors, but generally speaking). But, even so, if you’re faced with picking out new carpet and looking at installing new floors, we always recommend not skimping on the padding and ensuring that it’s going to be the best option for you.

 

If you need a professional company to come in a clean your carpet, look at your flooring, or even refinish your hardwoods- we’re here for you! Give us a call anytime, here at The Steam Team.

Quick Professional Tips to Make the Best First Impressions with House Guests

With all of the holidays around the corner, there’s no doubt that many of us will be sharing our homes with guests whether they’re family, neighbors, or friends. While all of the time we get to spend together is joyous and celebratory, it involves a lot of preparation and a lot of clean up both before and after.

 

Decide What’s ‘Essential’ and ‘Non-Essential’

Before you begin cleaning, the best way to prioritize your home is to decide what’s essential and what’s non-essential. If you have a buildup of clutter, that may be on your ‘essential’ list as clutter usually makes a space feel smaller and is more difficult to clean. On the other hand, if you haven’t checked your air ducts in a while, that may fall on your ‘non-essential’ list. In other words; don’t stress about your air ducts if you’re not able to get to them before company is coming over.

 

Allow Yourself Enough Time

This may mean different things for different people. For some, you may want to allow yourself enough time to hammer out your cleaning schedule; something different on each day. For others, this may mean you’re allowing yourself enough time to hire the professionals to come in and thoroughly clean your home top to bottom.

 

Take a Load Off, Put Your Feet Up

It’s the holidays- don’t stress yourself out about cleaning for your house guests. Instead spend that time planning your meals for the big day, picking out decorations or games, and of course- on the day of- spending quality time with your people.

Here at The Steam Team, we’ve got you covered with all of your cleaning needs. From steam cleaning carpet, tile and grout, and even window treatments- we can make your house sparkle and shine just in time for your guests.

Protecting Your Flooring From Water Damage: Before & After

Whether the damage stems from a flash flood or a faulty dishwasher, excess water can wreak havoc on our homes and valuables. Especially with all of the storms and rain the great state of Texas has encountered in the past couple of months, it’s always been important (and more so now, than ever) to be prepared for water damage.

 

Before:

 

If you know there’s a storm coming and you’re in danger of flooding, there are several things you can do to prepare and stay safe before you’re faced with the water.

 

Disconnect Electronics

Your first move should be to disconnect anything electronic- water and electricity should never mix!

 

Move Belongings

If there are any belongings or furniture that might be affected by the water, it’s always a good idea to move them to higher ground or a space where the water is less likely to get to them.

 

After:

 

Turn Off Electricity

If you notice any standing water, turn off the main power source, and contact an electrician! It’s better to be safe than sorry.

 

Dry Out the Affected Area

 

Everything must be dried thoroughly in order to prevent the growth and spread of mold (all it takes is twenty four hours in a dim, damp environment).

 

Dry out everything (carpet, upholstery, laundry, bedding, etc) to the best of your ability (and remember- The Steam Team has all of the proper training and equipment to handle any situation, no matter how daunting!)

 

Calling in the Professionals

 

Lastly (and most important), call your local steam cleaning company! A professional knows exactly what to look for, and will effectively clean, disinfect, and dry without missing a single spot! Contact us immediately after detecting water damage inside your home. The Steam Team comes in and assess the damages, make repairs, and finally- returns your home to its beautiful condition.

Are you looking to go a bit more green? Maybe it’s time to eliminate those pesky chemicals from your household (for good this time). As always, we encourage you to start steam cleaning your home right now so that you can protect your family from potentially harmful chemicals, but there are other great reasons to steam clean, too! Let’s delve into a few of them: steam cleaning cleans without chemicals, doesn’t leave behind any harmful residue, and also kills other pesky substances like germs, bacteria, and allergens!

 

Cleans Without Using Chemicals

 

As we mentioned before, steam cleaning cleans your home without using any chemicals. There won’t be any bleach, or specially formulated cleaning products. The only thing a steam cleaner uses is hot water, and high water pressure! That’s what makes it such an incredibly safe method of cleaning- and that’s why we’re always pushing you to start right now.

 

Doesn’t Leave Behind Any Residue

 

Since a steam cleaning machine doesn’t use any chemicals, there is no residue to be left behind. This makes steam cleaning an even safer option for cleaning in your home, especially if you have small children or pets in the household.

 

Kills Germs, Bacteria, Dust Mites, Etc

 

Even better news: Not only will you be eliminating chemicals from your household with steam cleaning, but you’ll also be killing germs, bacteria, dust mites, allergens, and more! This is really important if you have members of the household who have allergies. They’ll be so relieved!

3 Frequently Asked Questions About Caring for Leather Furniture After Fire Damage

So perhaps you’ve just bought a brand new set of living room furniture- all leather upholstered. If you’re wondering how to properly care for it, you’ve come to the right place! Below, The Steam Team has three frequently asked questions about leather furniture and how it’s cared for, and we hope you find the answers helpful!

 

How Can Leather Be Cleaned?

 

When it comes to cleaning, leather upholstery typically needs to be dusted and vacuumed on a weekly basis. You can wipe it down with a dry microfiber cloth, or a damp cloth if the dust is thicker. Remember to never, ever use a soaking wet cloth on your leather upholstery. Use your vacuum’s cleaning attachment to vacuum corners, nooks, and crannies in leather furniture. It’ll do wonders!

 

How Often Should Leather Be Conditioned?

 

Next, comes conditioning. Leather conditioning is just as important as leather cleaning! Leather furniture should be conditioned once to twice a year, depending on the amount of wear and tear it endures on a daily basis, and quickly it’s drying out.

 

What Causes Leather to Dry Out?

 

Leather is similar to our skin, which needs to stay moisturized in order to remain healthy and in good condition. What causes leather to dry out? Well, if your sofa or chair is near an air vent, or a sunny window, it could dry out and fade quicker than if it were placed away from the vent/window (or if the window were covered).


The Steam Team has over a decade of experience with cleaning, conditioning, and caring for leather furniture! Especially after fire damage and water damage. If your furniture is in need of a little bit of tender loving care, don’t be afraid to contact The Steam Team. We can clean and restore your leather to its original condition, and you’ll love the results!

Upholstered Furniture and Stains: What To Do

That brand new upholstered couch looks amazing in your living room! You’ve simply fallen in love with it. But, most importantly, you want to make sure it lasts as long as possible, and retains its fresh, new look. Stains definitely work against creating such an image! So here’s a quick guide to cleaning and removing stains from upholstery!

 

Clean Stains Right When They Happen

 

Ah, Rule #1, always clean up stains immediately. Basically, the longer the stain sits, the more likely it is to become permanent. So blot them clean- never scrub the stain, as you may end up spreading the affected area.

 

Check the Label

 

Check the label on your furniture for cleaning instructions. It can contain some very valuable information! For instance, an “X,” means that the item should only be professionally cleaned. It’s better to be in the know!

 

Perform a Spot Test

 

Before using any cleaning product, find an inconspicuous area on the piece of furniture to perform a spot test. This way you could potentially avoid ruining a larger section of the piece of furniture.

 

Fight Food Spills and Stains

 

For food spills and stains, try mixing your own concoction of one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid and two cups of cold water. Dab this solution onto the stain with a clean, white cloth. Do this until all of the stain is absorbed, and your cloth is coming back dry.

 

Steam Clean

 

Occasionally, you need to call in the professionals! Simply put, they have the right tools, knowledge, and experience for any stain or cleaning/restoration project!


And of course, don’t forget that The Steam Team has your back when it comes to fighting stains! It’s one of our many specialties. Visit our website here to view all of our services, as well as cleaning tips!

3 Tips to Keep Your Rugs Clean During The Holidays

Although the eggnog, wine, and leftovers have their way of winding up on the carpet during the holidays, there are ways to combat stains! Here’s a quick guide to three things you can do to keep stains off of your floors through the holidays! So happy holidays, and happy cleaning!

 

Find a Festive Doormat

 

It’s smart to place doormats at the entrances of your home. Doormats help to catch dust, dirt, and other substances that stick to our shoes before they have the opportunity to reach our flooring. This can keep carpet looking new for much longer, and certainly makes cleaning day easier! It’s a simple solution to a not-so-simple problem!

 

Clean Up Spills Immediately

 

No matter how many glasses of wine you’ve had… (just kidding), spills must be cleaned up immediately after they happen. We’re not kidding about that part! The longer a spill sits on an area of your flooring, the more likely it is to permanently stain. So keep your cleaning supplies handy, and your eye out for spills and accidents! They’re bound to happen, no matter how careful we are.

 

Spread a Rug Out

 

Do you have a festive rug hanging out with all of your holiday decorations?Maybe it’s time to bring it out! You can protect your carpet (or hardwood, marble, etc) flooring from stains by simply covering it up! So utilize those are and oriental rugs that you’ve been storing! Plus, they easily spice up the look of a room!


And as always, don’t forget that The Steam Team is here for you this holiday season! From carpet stains to tile, grout, and hardwood flooring, we can cover it all! We have the right equipment, expertise, and experience for any job. So if you need help keeping stains off of your floors this season, give The Steam Team a call!

Best Carpet Cleaning Options Austin Texas

Do you know what the best methods are for cleaning your carpet? There’s certainly more than one! Today we’ll go over three methods of carpet cleaning, and you can decide which one is best for you. But as always, we recommend steam cleaning; it’s the most effective out of the three we’ll list here! The Steam Team has been serving the Austin community for over a decade now; we’d love to come out and care for your flooring!

 

Sweeping and Vacuuming

 

Sweeping and vacuuming are chores that definitely make the routine list. It’s necessary to sweep and vacuum carpeting on a daily basis to pick up dirt, sand, dander, dust mites, crumbs, and other unsightly things we don’t want camping out in our carpet! But of course, after so much foot traffic and so many spills, vacuuming may not cut it.

 

Shampooing

 

Carpet shampooing is typically that step you take when vacuuming no longer restores your carpet like it used to. There are many products and tools available on the market for shampooing your carpet; be careful with certain chemicals and make sure to perform a spot test on an inconspicuous area of your flooring!

 

Hot Water Extraction

 

Hot water extraction, or rather- steam cleaning, is the method we prefer and always recommend! Using absolutely no chemicals (nothing but hot water and high pressure, in fact), a professional grade steam cleaning machine can reach deep within the fibers of your carpet, and extract everything from dust to dander!

 

The Steam Team has ten years of experience in steam cleaning carpets, and many other types of flooring, too! So don’t even bother with rental machines or DIY methods; skip straight to hiring the professionals! They’ll have all of the right equipment, knowledge, and experience needed for the job!

And it means dealing with the aftermath. So let’s talk about cleaning before and after company!

 

Here are the areas we should dutifully clean before and after having company over:

 

The Living Room

 

This could also be known as “the party room.” You’ll be spending most of your time here, so make sure it’s nice and clean! Make sure floors are swept and/or vacuumed thoroughly, and all surfaces are wiped down and ready for drinks. Dust bookshelves and window blinds. And upholstered furniture should also be cleaned, so that your guests have a clean seating area.

 

Kitchen and Dining Areas

 

Ah, the food areas- we can’t neglect those! Countertops, flooring, and stove tops should all be cleaned (and can all be steam cleaned). The professionals can totally step in here, and help you get the work done at a faster rate. Plus, a professional steam cleaning company has all of the right equipment for the job!

 

Bathrooms

Clean From the Top - Down

 

Start at the top of your kitchen and work your way downward. Yes, this means cleaning the tops of your refrigerator and cabinets! These are very common places for dust mites and dead critters! The floor should obviously be the last thing you tackle- we’ll cover that later.

 

Steam Clean Stove and Countertops

 

We always recommend steam cleaning when it comes to cleaning and sanitizing stove tops and countertops. Not only will it kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria, but it also alleviates a lot of scrubbing and hard work! Your surfaces will look amazing after a good steam cleaning.

 

Sweep Every Day

 

In order to keep your flooring in good condition, you’ll have to sweep on a daily basis, especially if there are pets or children in the house.

Does your carpet need replace with tile in Austin Texas?

Unfortunately, our beautiful, plush carpet doesn’t last forever! Carpet can last about 10-15 years, depending on its condition. Eventually cleaning doesn’t do it justice, and carpet needs replacing. We’re here to tell you when that might be! What should you look out for? And what should you keep in mind?

 

Lost Texture

 

Is your carpet becoming matted down? Of course, some loss in texture is normal, with pets, children, and regular wear and tear. But over time, the carpet may not look or feel as plush and comfy as it once was.

 

Tears and Rips

 

Carpet that’s tearing is a good sign that it needs to be replaced. Some tears can be repaired, but some are, well, beyond repair. Tears often start appearing in corners, or in the middle of the door between two rooms. Catch them before they get too bad!̧

 

Loss of Color

 

Another reason to replace your old carpet is color loss. It's just not aesthetically pleasing! You can prevent color loss by preventing spills and stains, and also by keeping your carpet out of direct sunlight; sunlight easily causes carpet to fade and discolor.

 

Persistent Odors

 

Sorry pet owners, but pet urine is often the cause of carpet replacing. It seeps through the carpet, into the padding, and even into the walls if not treated in a timely manner. Steam cleaning is the best option for removing pet odors, but if it’s not doing the job, it may be time for a replacement.

 

Persistent Stains

 

And lastly, if you have persistent, unsightly stains, replacing your carpet may be the best option! But first, try steam cleaning; The Steam Team is well known for ridding carpet of persistent stains, preventing you from having to replace everything.


If your carpet does need replacing, don’t stress! The Steam Team can help with that! We have over ten years of experience handling carpet, and many other materials. We’re your go-to when it comes to cleaning and restoration projects! So give us a call today! If your carpet is not performing get some tile floors

The Steam Team is a group of experts when it comes to concrete cleaning and staining (and a multitude of other tasks) so stay tuned to learn all about the perks of concrete staining!

 

It Revamps Your Patio’s “Look”

It Also Affects the Look of Your Backyard

 

A new patio does wonders to an old backyard. You’ll be so surprised at the results! And hey- maybe it’ll even inspire you to change up your landscaping, or build a matching shed! Well, okay, maybe building a shed would be going overboard, but even so, a freshly stained concrete patio will certainly revitalize that old, dingy backyard.

 

It’s a Fun DIY Project

 

As long as you have the right tools and information, concrete staining can be a fun DIY project for everyone! Although, if the concrete is uneven, the job may require some sanding and you may want to leave it up to the professionals. It all depends on your own level of expertise!


Maybe you’ve started that DIY project, but can’t finish it correctly. Or maybe you don’t want to do-it-yourself at all! That’s okay! The Steam Team has your back.

If your area rug is small enough, you can simply take it outside for a good old fashioned beating! This will help rid the rug of dirt, dust, and grit. It’s also a great way to take out your frustration!

 

Vacuum Large Area Rugs

 

Large area rugs must be vacuumed frequently. You’ll be surprised at how much dust, dirt, and hair your vacuum extracts from your rug.

 

Turn Rugs Every Year

 

Foot traffic can put extra stress on area rugs. Try to turn them once or twice a year to even out the wear and tear!

 

Brush Rugs to Rid Them of Pet Hair

 

Sometimes vacuuming doesn’t cut it when it comes to pet hair, and you’ll need to brush it out. This is a much more effective method.

 

Keep Area Rugs Out of Direct Sunlight

 

Sunlight does a great job at causing discoloration in our beautiful area rugs. If you can’t keep your rugs out of direct sunlight, rotate them periodically so that they at least fade evenly.

But don’t worry, if ever you’re in a true pickle with your carpet, you can always call in the professionals, like The Steam Team! We have plenty of experience and expertise when it comes to keeping carpet clean. But until we arrive, follow these 5 guidelines:

 

Place Doormats at Entrances and Exits

 

Placing doormats at the entrances and exits of your home will help catch dirt and dust before it reaches your carpet. Isn’t that a handy trick? It’ll save you time and inconvenience when vacuuming, too!

 

Remove Shoes at the Door

 

Like the doormats, removing shoes at your door will keep dirt off of carpet. Encourage every member of the household to do this, especially children (their shoes are always the muddiest!).

 

Vacuum Often

 

Carpet should be vacuumed at least weekly to keep up with dirt and dust around the home. It also prevents carpet fibers from becoming matted down, which is very unsightly. Keep your carpet clean and soft by vacuuming on the regular.

 

Clean Up Spills and Stains Immediately

 

This is rule #1 to carpet cleaning! As soon as an accident happens, clean it up! Letting liquids and spills sit on the floor increases their chances of staining your carpet!

 

Call the Professionals Periodically

 

It’s wise to occasionally call in the professionals for a deep cleaning! Sometimes, there’s only so much we can do for our carpet, and we need to let the pro’s step in.


Following these five simple “rules,” will help your carpet stay clean and looking great! And as always, don’t hesitate to give The Steam Team a call when you need assistance. We’re your #1 option for professional cleaning and restoration; let us prove it to you.

Tile and Grout Cleaning Round Rock Texas

Tile looks marvelous in our homes, and it’s beautifully accentuated by grout. However, the problem is that grout in particular is porous, meaning it easily absorbs liquids. Those inevitable spills and stains become embedded into our grout, causing discoloration that can look horrid- especially when compared to what our grout looked like when it was originally installed. The Steam Team are tile and grout cleaning experts. We have been cleaning Round Rock for over 40 years. 

 

But don’t fret! The Steam Team can restore your tile and grout to its original condition in a flash. In fact, we always recommend steam cleaning for tile and grout! Below, you’ll find some general information about keeping grout clean!

 

Grout Sealant

 

Unless you have epoxy-based grout, you need grout sealer. Simply put, it serves as a barrier between your grout and liquid. Don’t forget to let the sealer dry completely before using your tile and grout. For all your Round Rock cleaning needs give us a call today at 512-451-8326.

 

Scrubbing Tile and Grout

 

The most traditional method of cleaning grout is by scrubbing it. You can use chlorine bleach to clean the grout, but since it’s toxic and lets off noxious fumes, make sure your area is properly ventilated, and that you’re wearing safety glasses! Sometimes our scrub brushes cause the bleach to splash.

 

When scrubbing grout, it’s important to remember to not use any abrasive cleaning materials.
