Carpet Cleaning this Fall?

It’s Fall, ya’ll! As the temperatures begin to drop, both kids and pets are spending more time outdoors- and we probably are, too. This means that our carpet is experiencing more foot traffic, and dirt that’s being tracked in as we exit and enter our homes. It may feel impossible at times to keep your carpet clean, but, trust us; The Steam Team has all of the knowledge and expertise needed to take care of your carpet! Below, you’ll find a few tips for keeping your flooring clean this season, and how we can help, too!

 

Vacuum and Sweep

 

Unfortunately, we can’t get around it. Our floor and carpet needs to be swept and vacuumed regularly in order for it to stay clean. Use a strong broom, preferably one with a longer handle so you don’t have to bend over, and a vacuum with an attachment. The vacuum’s attachment can help rid dust and dirt from the corners of baseboards, and you can clean off your furniture! If you do this regularly, you’ll be surprised at how great your flooring looks!

 

Mop Occasionally

 

Those paw prints, shoe prints, and skid marks are definitely something for the mop to tackle! Mopping the floor is essential to keeping it clean. Use a bucket of warm water with your handy household carpet cleaner, and your preferred mop- there are so many kinds, from a standard rag mop to a Swiffer. It doesn’t matter what brand you go with as long as the job gets done!

Vacuuming is Essential

 

This is the easiest way to maintain leather furniture. Use your vacuum’s attachment to cover every nook and cranny of your sofa. You’ll rid the sofa of dust, dirt, dander, and other debris without using much man power!

 

Dry Dusting Helps!

 

In between vacuuming, it can help to dry dust your sofa with a soft, clean microfiber cloth or brush. This is great for days when you don’t want to bring out the vacuum or don’t have too much time on your hands.

 

Moisturizing and Conditioning

 

Over time, the oils in leather furniture evaporate and dry out the material. This could lead to wear and tear, cracks, and other unsightly happenings. Conditioning the leather will keep it in optimal shape, but you’ll want to exercise caution. You may wish to seek the advice of a professional as to which type of cleaner and conditioner you should use. Call 512-451-8326 for cleaning in Austin.

Perhaps your carpet is in need of a professional’s advice and attention! Whether it be mud stains from the new puppy (so, maybe that isn’t mud…?), traffic stains, or general wear and tear, The Steam Team’s trained professionals are always here to help! We’ll briefly discuss our cleaning process, but today we mainly want to focus on drying time! Obviously carpet cleaning requires the usage of water/moisture, which begs the question: how long should the carpet take to dry, and is my flooring at risk for mold growth?

 

Our Cleaning Process

 

In the home or office, it doesn’t matter how soiled the carpet has become. In most cases we can restore your flooring to its original condition. Our high-powered, professional-grade equipment will use nothing but intense heat and water pressure to extract dirt, debris, and stains from your carpet.

 

Our Drying Process

 

Of course, your carpet will not dry instantly, despite our cleaning methods. And we understand that you’ll want to return to your daily routines as quickly as possible- so we recommend walking barefoot across your carpet, with clean feet! You shouldn’t expect your carpet to be anything but damp- not soaked, or sopping with moisture. So as long as your feet are clean, if you must, you may walk through your home or office without risk.

 

We can expedite the drying process by placing box fans throughout the room, or by turning on ceiling fans. Just make sure your ceiling fans are clean, as well, to avoid dust from falling onto your freshly steam cleaned carpet! And since this process won’t take long at all- there’s no reason to worry about mold growth.


The Steam Team is the leading carpet cleaner of Austin, TX, and is always happy to come out to your home or place of business, to clean your carpet with not only enthusiasm, but also with professionalism, and expertise. If you’re in need of a professional cleaning- just give us a call!

Who said cleaning can’t be fun? Steam cleaning may not seem like it could be exciting to you, but when you see the effects it has on various surfaces and environments everyday - it’s certainly intriguing.

 

Check out these awesome facts about steam cleaning!

  1. Steam cleaning can help improve air quality around the home.

Ridding flooring (and other surfaces) of common allergens, dust particles, and grime build up keeps these things from circulating around the home. With all of these particles, the air quality around your home will start to improve.

 

Don’t forget to clean your air ducts and you’re sure to breathe clean air!

  1. The steam cleaner was first invented over 150 years ago.

Since then, it’s come a long way! The technology integrated with steam cleaners now is entirely different. Machines are able to be used on various surfaces, materials, and fabrics for a variety of reasons, too. Not only can flooring be steam cleaned, but furniture, window treatments, appliances, air ducts - you name it!

 

What we know now versus what we knew when steam cleaning was initially invented is monumental.

  1. Carpet should be professionally steam cleaned every 12-18 months.

Regularly cleaning carpets with a steam cleaner helps to eliminate any grime build-up but also keeps allergens and pollutants at a minimum around the home. Remember; steam cleaning is a much more thorough and deep clean versus regular vacuuming. Scheduling a professional to come into your home every 12-18 months has shown to be the most effective and efficient way to protect, clean, and maintain carpet flooring.
