Keep Your Hardwood Floors Looking Like New

If you have hardwood floors in your home, then you’re likely all too familiar with how difficult it can be to keep them clean! Add on small children who love to make messes, or pets who can’t help but create messes, and you’ve got yourself an even bigger problem. But don’t fret! The Steam Team has the answers. Here’s a cleaning routine for your hardwood flooring that really works!


Dusting Floors Daily


When it comes to maintaining a clean floor, this is where it all begins. So start off on the right foot this time! Dust tends to settle all over flooring and baseboards, especially if you have a fan that runs constantly. We recommend using a microfiber dust mop on your hardwood flooring, as the microfiber material clings to dust and just doesn’t let it go!


Mopping Floors Weekly


Don’t be intimidated by the task of mopping your hardwood flooring. The important thing is that you keep a few things in mind, such as, too much liquid on hardwood floors is not a good thing! It can definitely do some damage. It’s also important to note that some cleaners can damage the finish, so only purchase cleaners that are made for hard floors. Keep these things in the forefront of your mind while you’re mopping and you’ll be good to go!


Polishing Floors Quarterly


If your floors are lacking the shine that you remember from when you first moved in , it may be time for a good polishing! In actuality, hardwood floors should be polished every two to three months. But don’t let that intimidate you, because the professionals can always help out! The Steam Team specializes in caring for hardwood flooring, as well as other types of flooring!

Top Benefits from Steam Cleaning

Depending on how many feet are sludging through your household, you may only worry about cleaning once or twice per week. However, as those feet increase (whether you gain a few pets or a few kids), those messes will, too. We don’t believe in steam cleaning just because we’re The Steam Team, we’re The Steam Team because we see the effects and benefits from steam cleaning! And today, we’re going to share a few of these with you, too!

 

Effective and Efficient (and Cost Efficient!)

Steam cleaning only needs hot water and the steam cleaner (and the technician, if you hire the professionals). Say goodbye to any mops, buckets, and detergents!

 

Steam Cleaning Eliminates Germs, Bacteria, and Dust Mites

It’s true! Steam cleaning eliminates 99.9% of germs, bacteria, dust mites, and other unsightly things in your home. Anyone in the home who has allergies will also be grateful, as steam cleaning destroys allergens.

 

Additionally, steam cleaning tackles mold easier than any other method we’ve seen. Using solutions like bleach don’t actually stop mold growth, but the high intensity of a steam cleaner does!

 

It’s Completely Safe for Your Environment

Because all you’re using is heat and water, steam cleaning is completely safe for your home, children, pets and other family members. There won’t be any leftover residue, either! It’s the most environmentally friendly way of cleaning!

Change the Look of Your Home or Patio with Concrete Staining

Concrete Floor Cleaning 

Concrete Floor Cleaning 

Concrete flooring has become a popular alternative to carpet and hardwood among homeowners. Perhaps this is due to carpet’s vulnerability- in some cases, stains are too much to hassle with, or carpet in general can be too difficult to maintain. Concrete staining is a simple, easy process, and the results are stunning! Click here for more information. 

 

The Pro’s of Concrete Staining

 

Besides its simplicity, there are several pro’s to staining interior or exterior concrete flooring. It’s extremely customizable, as the stain is available in several different colors and shades. You can even match your patio with its furniture or the siding of your home! And inside the house, you can match your choice of concrete stain with the living room drapes, furniture, or wall color.

 

Another obvious advantage is the ability to completely remodel your outside patio in a simple, cost-effective manner, and that it’s so simple to clean!

 

How to Stain Concrete

 

We always recommend contacting a professional restoration company for this process. There are certainly ways to “DIY,” the project, but calling a professional guarantees success; you won’t risk damaging your patio, home, or anything else- not that we don’t trust you, of course. We’re certain you know what you’re doing. However, if you do decide to contact The Steam Team, here’s what we’ll do:

 

You concrete will be sanded down, polished, and properly cleaned before the stain is applied. Once the stain has been applied and is the shade you desire, we’ll apply a sealant to insure that it lasts longer. We want your concrete to look as beautiful as you’d like it it to be, and won’t stop until we’ve achieved the results you desire!
