How Best to Clean Your Office Area Rugs in the Winter

As our year comes to a close, we end up reflecting back on the good, the bad, and the ugly of 2017. This past year has had it’s shares of ups and downs, just like the years before it- but we’ve definitely found ourselves in a lot dirtier situations here in Texas. Hurricane Harvey brought torrential downpours not just for the Houston area, but for all surrounding areas, too. The floodwaters left behind tons of dirt and grime that could even be potentially dangerous to our health. What better way to kick off the New Year than with a thorough clean for your whole office?

 

Germs spread like wildfire- and in the winter time, more often than usual. Typically this can be traced back to the colder temperatures causing us to stay indoors more, and thus, spread our germs with each other. Winter time is the worst time of year for the common cold, flu, and other respiratory illnesses- so here are our tips for keeping your workplace (and home) disinfected and germ-free!

 

Heat & Pressure

 

Germs, bacteria, and other allergens are no match for a steam clean! The intense heat and pressurized water ensures that nothing is left behind to continue spreading. This method of cleaning is completely safe for the environment, and will not leave behind any excess moisture or harmful residue- so there’s no need to worry about mold growth!

 

Flooring

 

Regular vacuuming routines do wonders for keeping up with the dust, dirt, and allergens that plague our carpets on a daily basis. It’s likely that the cleaning crew does a fabulous job of this, but we should still expect the office flooring to need the occasional deep cleaning, just as your house does, so...

Professional Carpet Cleaning Austin Tx

Ah… keeping carpet clean. The struggle! It’s not easy, especially if there are pets or children in the home. Or if you’re just clumsy and prone to spilling food and drinks! 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.
