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.

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.

Caring for Hardwood Floors: The Secret to A Longer Lifetime

Hardwood flooring looks beautiful in our homes, and lasts a long time, too! With the proper care, you can elongate the lifespan of your hardwood flooring! Here are three simple rules to caring for your hardwood the proper way! We hope you find them helpful!

 

Vacuum or Sweep Regularly

 

The first step to caring for your hardwood flooring is to vacuum and sweep. It’s important that you vacuum or sweep your floor on a routine basis. Doing so will surely catch all of the dust, dirt, and grime that builds up on your floor! So when chore day comes around, make sure you’re incorporating your hardwood flooring into the cleaning routine!

 

Place Area Rugs Around Your Home

 

Next, let’s talk about placing area rugs around your home. Area rugs help protect your flooring from regular wear and tear, caused by foot traffic. Simply put, they serve as a barrier between the soles of our feet and the hardwood flooring. They also add a touch of personality to the room!

 

Clean Spills and Spots Immediately

 

Finally, stain removal; let’s discuss what to do when an accident happens! As soon as an accident occurs (don’t we wish we could prevent them!), it’s important that you tend to it! Clean up spills and stains immediately. You can use a DIY concoction, or your favorite household cleaner, just as long as it’s safe for hardwood flooring! You wouldn’t want to cause even more damage by using the wrong cleaner.


If you need assistance caring for your hardwood flooring, don’t hesitate to give The Steam Team a call! We have over a decade of experience with a wide variety of cleaning and restoration projects! Hardwood flooring shouldn’t be steam cleaned, but we have plenty of experience refinishing it and restoring it to its original condition! So pick up the phone today!

Cleaning Out the Office: Tips From the Pro's

It’s a new year, and perhaps time for a bit of change in your office! Let’s do some rearranging, redecorating, and most importantly, cleaning. Nothing feels more renewing than stepping into a freshly cleaned office! The Steam Team has five simple guidelines for you to follow if you want to keep your office as clean as possible.

 

Dust Regularly

 

Offices collect dust very quickly and need to be cleaned more than just occasionally! We can’t avoid it. Even if you aren’t thrilled about it, dust surfaces, corners, computers, and draperies on the regular.

 

Keep Window Blinds Clean

 

Window blinds trap all kinds of dust, dirt, and debris and they can be quite inconvenient to clean! Who feels like removing their blinds and washing them, or dusting each slat one by one? Fortunately, with a professional-grade steam cleaner, The Steam Team can clean your office’s blinds without even removing them!

 

Vacuum Often

 

You never know what’s lurking deep within the fibers of your carpet. Dust mites, dirt, debris, dander, and crumbs (from eating lunch at your desk) could all be hiding out in your carpet. Vacuum thoroughly at least once a week to keep the flooring looking great!

 

Avoid Eating at Your Desk

 

Try not to eat lunch at your desk! Instead, head to the break room; that’s what it’s for, right?. Besides, it can feel incredibly refreshing to step away from your work for some time. Sometimes lunch can get messy; eating at your desk will cause grime to build up faster; you simply can’t avoid spills!

 

Call The Steam Team

 

Our last one: call The Steam Team for all of your high rise cleaning needs! We have over a decade of experience cleaning office buildings, homes, apartments, retail spaces, and so many more- you can definitely rely on us to get the job done quickly!
