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!

Do You Live in A High Rise? We've Got the Best Cleaning Solution for You

Do you live in a high rise building, or work in one? We can help you keep it clean and pristine- with ease! Check out these five areas we can effortlessly clean with a steam cleaner! Your high rise is absolutely no problem for us!

 

Ceiling Fans

 

If you have ceiling fans in your high rise, you know they need to be cleaned, but they’re often neglected. Ceiling fans trap copious amounts of dust.

The Steam Team can steam clean your window treatments and blinds without even having to remove them! It’s a super efficient way of cleaning. Not to mention, you won’t have to fuss with the hassle of doing it yourself!

 

Carpeting

 

Dirt, dust, debris, crumbs… our carpet can hold it all, and conceal it all very well. Let The Steam Team tackle your carpet today by steam cleaning it down its very core! Using nothing but pressurized steam and hot, hot water, we’ll extract all of the debris from your carpeting and leave it looking as good as new.

 

Surfaces

Natural Stone Flooring

Spot Treating Advice from The Experts

Are you having trouble removing that tough stain? Are you tired of hiding it beneath the rug, or the ottoman? Worry no more. Trust in the professionals, like The Steam Team! The Steam Team is a team of trained professionals who are experts at removing stains, and keep carpet clean, clean, clean. Here are a few spot treating tips that we have to offer; hopefully they help!

 

Always Test Your Cleaning Solution

 

Before you begin to remove the stain, it’s wise to test your cleaning solution, first! Just in case. Isn’t it always better to be safe, rather than sorry? Use the cleaning agent in an inconspicuous area first, to make sure that no discoloration occurs.

 

Blot, Don’t Rub

 

Whenever you’re treating a stain, always blot the stain instead of rubbing it. Rubbing the stain may cause it to spread, or more deeply embed itself into your precious carpet! You certainly don’t want that to happen. So blot gently over and over, until the entire stain has been removed.

 

Call in the Professionals

 

If the stain is just too tough, it’s always best to call in a professional cleaning and restoration company, like The Steam Team. The Steam Team specializes in keep carpets as clean as possible, and restoring homes to their original condition. We can come out, inspect your stained carpeting, and begin to remove it right away.

3 Ways to Care for Your Furniture

Have you recently purchased a new piece of leather furniture? Owning leather furniture is great, especially when you consider how beautiful it accents your home! But there is a routine that comes along with caring for it. Below, The Steam Team will point out three simple steps for caring for your brand new leather furniture! We hope you find these tips helpful!

 

Dry Dusting

 

First, let’s start with the easiest step: dry dusting. Dry dusting your leather furniture is quite the simple process. Just grab your cleanest, freshest microfiber cloth and thoroughly run it along the surface of your leather upholstery! Be sure to cover every inch of the furniture. You don’t want to miss any dust. If you find any dirt that’s embedded in the leather, you can use a damp cloth to clean it- just make sure it’s not wet.

 

Vacuuming

 

Next, let’s bring out the trusty vacuum! Your vacuum has a handy dandy attachment that’s perfect for cleaning your leather furniture (or at least, we hope it has one!). Use your vacuum attachment to reach the nooks, crannies, and corners of your furniture. Dust and dirt likes to hide out there! You never know what your vacuum may find!

 

Conditioning

 

Lastly, let’s talk about leather conditioning. Just like our skin, leather tends to dry out from time to time. It needs conditioning to stay in good shape! It’s recommended that you condition your leather upholstery every six to twelve months. See? That’s not too terribly often! We also recommend that you keep your leather furniture out of direct sunlight, to protect it from drying out too quickly.


The Steam Team is happy to help you out with your new leather furniture! Just give us a call today for expert conditioning and tips. And don’t forget, if you’re having another cleaning or restoration crisis, we’re available 24/7 to help you out! We’re always here for any of your cleaning or restoration needs.

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.

Bathroom Tile and Grout

 

Tile and grout are notorious for staining and discoloration. It’s porous by nature, so it absorbs spills and accidents very easily and needs to be cleaned often!

We recommend steam cleaning tile and grout; it’s easy, saves you time and labor, and cleans effectively!

Utilize Door Mats

 

Door mats were invented for a very great purpose! They help catch dirt from the outside and on our shoes, and prevent it from reaching our beautiful carpet. Keep a door mat at each entrance to your home and you’ll be surprised at the impact it makes (just don’t forget to clean the mat itself every once in awhile)!

 

Remove Shoes at the Door

 

An impressive amount of dirt, dust, and debris cling to our shoes as we walk about. All of that debris can really take a toll on our carpet- if we let it. Another option is to leave our filthy shoes at the entrances to our homes, so that it doesn’t even have a chance to reach our carpet!

 

Vacuum Frequently

 

We simply can’t get around vacuuming and sweeping our floor! It has to be done at least once a week, depending on the amount of traffic your carpet experiences. If you have pets or children, expect to clean a little bit more frequently.

 

Use a Carpet Protector

 

Carpet protection works by repelling dirt, and by protecting it from spills and stains. It also helps to prevent wear and tear on your carpet and increases its longevity!

Rug Cleaning 

For homeowners, oldies and newbies alike, it may be difficult to choose which type of carpet padding to install! There are many benefits to carpet padding, such as softness, cushion, and some even hold those pesky rugs in place- but it all depends on the thickness! Below we’ll explain these benefits, and hopefully convince you to install carpet padding beneath your carpet, as it’s so great for your flooring and home in general! Serving Austin, Texas and surrounding areas.

 

A Little Extra Cushion for Our Sensitive Feet

 

Have you ever walked on carpet without padding? Notice the huge difference! With some types of carpet, it almost feels as if you’re just walking on the (concrete) foundation. But carpet padding provides your flooring with an extra layer of comfortable cushion, so your carpet will truly feel softer. You’ll want to walk around on it all day long!

 

An Increase in Carpet’s Longevity

 

Carpet padding absorbs the impact on carpet made by foot traffic, which helps preserve its backing and binding! So yes, carpet padding can actually help your carpet last much longer!

 

Area and Oriental Rugs Finally Stay Stationary

 

At last, no more constant shifting of your area and oriental rugs. It’s very common for them to slip and slide all over the place with foot traffic, and this can actually pose a threat to your family! Imagine yourself slipping and sliding-  and falling, sustaining an injury. Thankfully, this worry can be alleviated with the right carpet padding beneath your rugs.
