The Best Ways to Maintain Your Area Rugs

Do you have area rugs in your home? If so, you know the struggle it can be do keep them clean and presentable, and to help them last long! Friends, we’re here to tell you that it isn’t impossible. Below, we have the best tips for caring for and maintaining your area rugs. Just keep reading, and happy cleaning!


Vacuum Your Rugs on the Regular


Let’s start with the basics. It’s important to vacuum your rugs regularly! Think of how frequently you have to sweep and mop your hardwood or stone flooring; those carpets are just as messy. Vacuuming will help keep your rugs in pristine condition, and it will also keep the carpet fibers from becoming matted down and unsightly!


Blot Stains With a Clean Cloth


If you’ve ever spilled something onto your area rugs, you know how difficult stains can be to remove! But don’t worry, we’re here to help. Always blot the wet area with a clean, white cloth. Change out the cloth to make sure it’s always absorbing the liquid. Don’t rub the stain, as this can cause it to spread! Just keep blotting and using your handy dandy household cleaner (one that’s meant for area rugs) until the stain has been removed.


Call in The Steam Team


Finally, we recommend having your area rugs steam cleaned! A professional-grade steam cleaning machine can effectively rid your area rugs of stains (even the older, set in stains). The machine reaches deep within the carpet fibers in your rugs and extracts dirt, dander, dust, and other allergens- and of course, those pesky stains.


Give The Steam Team a call today for help caring for your area rugs! We’ll make sure we treat them with care, and that they look clean and pristine when we’re through with them. So don’t delay; put your trust in The Steam Team today!

Combating Allergies? Try Rug Cleaning

Are you battling Austin allergies this season? We know sometimes it seems like you just can’t get rid of them. It’s completely understandable! Austin is the allergy capital of the world! And fortunately, there are some things we can do around our homes to help those allergies ease right up! Let’s take a glance at a few areas to check this season, and let The Steam Team help you spruce them up!


Window Blinds


Dust, dust, and more dust! That’s the downfall of window blinds; they collect dust so easily! But dust is an allergen that we can conquer. It’s time to call in The Steam Team; we can clean your window blinds from where they hang! Steam cleaning is an effortless cleaning process that uses nothing but hot water and high water pressure to remove allergens from your home like dust, dander, and pollen!


Ceiling Fans


Ceiling fans are also known for collecting dust, and once there’s enough dust on the blades all the fan does is circulate it! Can you imagine what that circulation does to your allergies? Definitely not anything that is good for you. So grab your microfiber cloths and wipe away all of those allergens! Once you’re finished, you’ll be so impressed with the results!


Mattresses


Finally, your mattress! It needs your attention. We don’t think about the amount of time we spend in close quarters with all of the allergens that are lurking in our mattresses. But it’s true, mattresses hold in dust, dirt, sweat, dander, and odors that we really don’t want around. So let’s deep clean the mattress by having it steam cleaned by The Steam Team! Steam cleaning is great for mattresses as it helps to remove old stains and odors, as well as allergens!


Let’s steam clean away all of these allergens this season! Give The Steam Team carpet cleaners a shout if your home could use some TLC! We’d love to come help out!

Keeping Your Textiles as Luxurious as Possible

If you want your furniture to last and look as luxurious as possible, there are just a handful of simple guidelines to follow! Here at The Steam Team, we’re happy to help you learn how to care for your leather upholstery. Follow these three simple rules and you’ll be well on your way to success!

 

Keep it Clean

 

Cleaning leather upholstery isn’t as complicated as one might think! Just keep a few microfiber cloths on hand for regular dusting, and use your vacuum cleaner attachment to reach the corners of your furniture and beneath cushions. For spills and stains, be sure you’re only using a cleaner that’s specifically formulated for leather furniture- and even then, it’s wise to perform a spot test.

 

Keep it Conditioned

 

Leather is just like our skin, in that it needs to stay moisturized in order to stay healthy. Be sure to condition your leather furniture every 6-12 months, and maybe more frequently if your pets are allowed on the furniture. It also helps to keep leather out of direct sunlight, as this can dry out the leather or cause discoloration.

 

Call in The Steam Team

 

Whenever your leather furniture is due for a deep cleaning or a professional conditioning, feel free to call in The Steam Team! Our leather technicians will have absolutely no issue restoring your leather to its original condition. You’ll be impressed with our results! And hopefully we’ll hear from you again, as we handle a wide array of cleaning and restoration projects!

 

The Steam Team has been serving the city of Austin, TX for a long time now! We don’t plan on stopping anytime soon; we simply love what we do! So if your home could use a thorough deep, steam cleaning, or your leather furniture needs replenishing, don’t hesitate to give us a call!

Extending the Lifespan of Your Furniture

You love your leather furniture. It’s completely revamped the look of your living room; even house guests have said so! So naturally, you want it to last its longest. Well, fortunately for you, The Steam Team has the answers. Here’s how you can help your leather furniture last as long as possible!

 

Dust and Vacuum

 

Like anything, it’s important to regularly care for leather furniture- not just when you’re spring cleaning. Your leather furniture will need to be dusted frequently to prevent buildup and discoloration. And you’ll also want to vacuum out those nooks and crannies whenever you have your handy vacuum attachment out! Doing so will keep it in tip top shape, which will help it to last longer.

 

Condition Regularly

 

Just like our skin, leather furniture needs frequent conditioning. Conditioning your leather furniture will keep it from drying out and/or cracking. Make sure you’re using the correct product, or hire a professional to perform this task. You definitely don’t want anything to go awry when conditioning your furniture!

 

Call in the Professionals

 

Occasionally, give the professionals a call. Your leather furniture can be steam cleaned. And don’t worry; The Steam Team uses so little moisture on your furniture that it won’t be harmed. We can definitely help keep your leather cleaned and conditioned, thus elongating its lifespan.

The Best Way to Care for Your Area Rug

Here at The Steam Team rug cleaning, we’re all about giving your carpeting the proper care and treatment! Even when it comes to area and oriental rugs. Today we’re going to talk about the best way to care for your area rugs and help them last even longer! Here are three things you can do to care for your area rugs!

 

Vacuum Often

 

Vacuuming isn’t something we take lightly when it comes to caring for area rugs! It has to be done, friends. Vacuum at least twice weekly, depending on the amount of foot traffic your rugs receive, in order to keep them in tip top shape! Once you get into the swing of things, it actually becomes quite easy!

 

Spot Treat Stains

 

When it comes to removing stains from your area rugs, treat them just like you would your carpet! Lean on your trusty carpet cleaner, or even consider calling in a professional carpet cleaning company. Companies like The Steam Team have plenty of experience with area rugs, and would love to help you out!

 

Call in the Pro’s

 

When the going gets tough and you can’t make it to your area rugs, The Steam Team understands.

Careful Cleaning for Area and Oriental Rugs

Here at The Steam Team, we completely understand that your area and especially oriental rugs carry value. That’s why we offer the best care available for your rugs. Let us show you how well we take care of them by offering our services to you, and by telling you all about them right here! Go on, keep reading!

 

Beginning the Process

 

Have you ever imagined what exactly dirt can do to your rugs? Loose dirt particles become stuck in the carpet fibers, causing discoloration, and a reduction in your rug’s lifespan. Not only that, but dirt particles essentially break down carpet fibers by eating away at them! This is why it’s so important to occasionally have your rugs cleaned a professional.

 

Cleaning Your Area and Oriental Rugs

 

So how does a professional clean area and oriental rugs, might you ask? Well, very carefully, that’s for sure! We’d never do anything to harm your precious, valuable oriental or area rugs. After we’ve removed dirt particles from your rugs, we then use a pre-conditioning agent and other cleaning agents to thoroughly remove stains, grime, and the rest of the dirt from your carpets! They’ll look amazing when we’re finished!

 

Finishing the Process

 

Finally, it’s time for rinsing and drying: the final step to the cleaning process! Our experts at The Steam Team will carefully rinse your rugs clean of debris, including the cleaning agents. Then we’ll hand-groom your special carpeting to ensure that the fibers lay properly, and that the rug dries evenly.

 

You can certainly trust The Steam Team to take careful care of your area and oriental rugs. We’re a team of trained professionals who’ve been serving the Austin community for over a decade- that’s a lot of experience under our belts! And it’s all to take care of you. So just give us a call today for the absolute best treatment your rugs have ever received!



 

Maintaining the Longevity of Leather

Leather furniture can really add an incredible appeal to a room- and that’s not its only benefit, either. Leather is one of the strongest and longest lasting materials used to upholster furniture, but it’s also the most involved. By that, we mean it requires a little more maintenance (although different maintenance than other fabrics). Here at The Steam Team, we’ve set out to help you maintain your leather furniture so that it lasts as long as possible, and looks as if you’ve just bought it. Just follow this quick guide to leather maintenance and you’ll be good to go!

 

Wipe Down and Dust

The easiest (and best) way to regularly clean your leather furniture is with a dry microfiber cloth. It’s cheap- you probably already have one laying around your house- and quick! All you need to do is wipe down any exposed area to make sure there isn’t any dust or other particles collecting on the material.

 

For larger messes, you can use the attachment from your vacuum cleaner for another quick and easy cleanup. This is also the easiest way to reach those difficult, small spaces like cracks and crevices in the corners.

 

Be Wary of Products

Other than regularly wiping down your leather furniture, you want to be extremely wary of what products you choose to clean it with. Leather is sensitive, so using anything harsh can damage the material. In fact, the best thing to do is keep away from cleaning products in general when it comes to your leather furniture. The only product you need is conditioner- to keep the material completely moisturized through the years.

 

Keeping your leather upholstery clean and conditioned will help to optimize its elasticity, help it last much longer, and of course, help it to look inviting to not only you, but any house guests you have over! And don’t forget- if you find yourself in over your head with your leather furniture, we here at The Steam Team are always available to help you out.

How to Care for Area and Area Rugs

Ah, our area and oriental rugs… sometimes we use them to cover those gross, unsightly stains, and sometimes they’re family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation. Either way, they look lovely in our homes, and they need to be deep cleaned occasionally. But how do you clean your rugs? Well, let’s take a stab at answering that question today!

 

Cleaning Area and Oriental Rugs

 

Here’s how the process works when you call The Steam Team to take care of your area or oriental rug! First, we use our expert knowledge to inspect your textiles. Just by looking at the fibers and dyes involved in your carpets, we can tell which cleaning type we need to use. Then, using a pile lifter and vacuum, we’ll remove soil and dirt from the fibers of the rugs. Finally, we’ll perform a final inspection to make sure we’ve thoroughly cleaned your rugs! We won’t leave until they look brand new.

 

You Can Trust The Steam Team

 

Through a process that we’ve been practicing for over a decade now, The Steam Team can remove dirt, dust, allergens, debris, and stains from your area and oriental rugs! Just think about it: these substances cling to the carpet fibers in our rugs. Our children play on them, our pets nap on them, and we walk on them all day long (which, grossly pushes clouds of dust into the air!). It’s important to keep your area and oriental rugs clean- for the sake of cleanliness, and for your health! But don’t worry- The Steam Team is always here to help!

 

You can rely on The Steam Team to properly clean your area and oriental rugs! For over a decade now, we’ve been cleaning rugs in the Austin area. And don’t worry; we know exactly what we’re doing, and have the perfect tools for the job (they’ll be gentle and safe for your precious rugs)!

The Basics of Keeping Carpet Clean

Carpet looks fantastic in our homes, and feels comfortable on our feet, but it can be a bit of a challenge to keep it clean, can’t it? Accidents can’t be avoided, and spills seem to happen all of the time! But luckily we have professional cleaning and restoration companies to step in, and give our carpet a deep, thorough cleaning we could never do by ourselves! Here are three tips for keeping your carpet clean, from The Steam Team, your leading cleaning and restoration company in Austin, TX!

 

Vacuum Regularly

 

It simply cannot be avoided, friends. When it comes to vacuuming, carpet needs your attention at least once a week, depending on how much foot traffic it receives, or if there are pets in the home. Vacuuming not only keeps your carpet clean as a whistle, but it also keeps it from becoming matted down! It’s a mundane chore that does a lot of good!

 

Clean Up Spills ASAP

 

Rule #1 of stain removal is to tend to the affected area as soon as you possibly can, ideally right after the accident has happened. No one’s perfect, but the quicker you get to the spill, the better chance you have at completely removing the stain!

 

Call in the Professionals

 

Sometimes, you just have to let the professionals take over. If your carpet is due for a deep cleaning, or those pesky stains just won’t come out, don’t hesitate to call in the pro’s! A professional cleaning and restoration company will have the right knowledge and equipment for any job!


Speaking of the professionals, The Steam Team has over ten years of experience in cleaning and restoration projects! We can come out and restore your carpet to its original condition. Just rely on us, and you won’t ever regret it! Contact The Steam Team today.

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.

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!

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

Fire Damage Tips Austin Texas

Winter is right around the corner… and as temperatures begin to drop, some of us are lighting our fireplaces already! It’s important, however, to remain educated about fire safety this season. Fire damage is definitely not something you want to deal with, so let’s follow these five safety guidelines when burning fires and heating your home this winter:

 

For space heaters:

 

Don’t Use Space Heaters (As Primary Sources of Heat)

 

Space heaters can be very dangerous and should only be used as supplementary sources of heat. And of course, they should be placed in a safe area, away from curtains, clothing items, flammable liquids, decorations, etc!

 

Use a Reliable Extension Cord

 

When it comes to the extension cord for your handy space heater, make sure it’s the adequate cord! If the extension cord is unable to handle the current, it could potentially overheat and melt. Then you’re in need of a replacement cord at best, or dealing with fire damage at worst.

 

For fireplaces:

 

Use a Fire Screen

 

Fire screens are used to shield the room from popping embers. They’re made of chain link or sometimes glass (always remember that glass can get really hot, and thus dangerous for pets and children).

 

Utilize the Proper Tools

 

Your fire will need to be poked and prodded periodically to keep it burning. Be sure you’re using the correct tools, for your own safety!

 

Clean Your Chimney

 

Lastly, it’s important to have your chimney cleaned at least once per year. Clearing it of dust, dirt, soot, and debris will help smoke flow through it easily. We service all of Central Texas. Please visit our website for service areas in Austin
