Sweep and Vacuum Frequently

 

Your pet likely sheds frequently. Notice how that loose hair gets caught underneath tables, couches, and living chairs. Not to mention… it’s all over the carpet and rugs. This is why it’s so very important to vacuum and sweep as frequently as possible!

 

Clean Up Messes Promptly

 

As with any stain, we encourage you to clean up your pet’s messes in a prompt manner! The quicker you get to a mess, the easier it is to clean up. For tough stains and odors, try hiring a professional steam cleaning company; a professional-grade steam cleaner can easily extract stains from carpeting, using nothing but hot water and high water pressure!

 

Call in the Professionals

 

Lastly, call in the professionals at least once every twelve months. Let us help you! We have the right equipment for the job- and tons of experience (and expertise!). We can come out to your home, inspect the area, and thoroughly clean your home from top to bottom.

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.

Rug and Carpet Cleaning

 

Carpet makes a fantastic option for your home! It’s cushiony, comfy, and cozy! It’s available in a variety of colors and textures, and is generally easy to clean. In fact, today we’re talking about how to remove dirt and grime from your carpet, so it can be as clean as it was the day it was installed! From dusting, to steam cleaning, there are many ways to keep your carpet clean. Call The Steam Team of Austin, Texas for professional rug cleaning today. 

 

Vacuum on a Routine Basis

 

Dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming your floor is essential! Do it on the regular, and you’ll be set. It’ll also make chore day that much easier on you- since you’ll have kept up with it the entire time. And don’t forget about those baseboards; they collect so much dust over time.

 

Occasional Steam Cleaning

 

Steam cleaning is a way of cleaning that helps to eradicate dirt, grime, allergens, and other nasty substances from deep within the fibers of carpet. It uses nothing but pressurized water and high temperatures! No leftover residue, no chemicals, nothing. If you’re going to have your carpet deep cleaned, this is the way you want to go. Our location at 9901 Burnet Rd. Austin, Texas has a state-of-the art rug cleaning facility.

 

Develop Helpful Habits

 

Sometimes, we just have to change the way we do things! Try developing helpful habits for your carpet like removing your shoes at the door, or putting a mat at the entrances to your home! Door mats help to pick up the dirt and dust we bring in, and if we aren’t wearing our shoes around the house, then we aren’t tracking dirt around!

 

Keep dirt and grime away from your carpet by keeping up these habits, and of course by steam cleaning every so often. Call The Steam Team today for any of your carpet cleaning needs! Your carpet will be so clean by the time we’re finished, you’ll be amazed at the results of our professional carpet cleaning.

The Best Way to Hide a Stain

Have a stain in your carpet that’s causing a big eyesore? Expecting company tonight? Do you need to cover it up before the cleaning company arrives? No worries – we’ve got a couple tricks up our sleeve for you!  

 

1. The easiest solution would be to move a couple pieces of furniture around. If you have an ottoman, that’s the simplest way to cover the stain, assuming it is in a convenient spot. Otherwise, you can move your other furniture (couch, coffee table, ottoman, end tables, etc.) around in different positions until you can find one that you like that will also cover the stain. Sometimes this works out really nicely, too – you may find a different feng shui for your living room! Cleaning in Round Rock, Texas.

 

2. Have an extra area rug laying around? Another easy solution! Pull the area rug over the stain for the time being – remember, it won’t be there forever, it doesn’t need to look perfect! If you don’t have an extra area rug, it wouldn’t hurt to pull one from another area for a little bit.

 

3. We’ll probably surprise you with this one -- Believe it or not, the best way to remove that pesky stain is with a steam cleaner. Hiring a professional will ensure that the entire process is handled effectively and efficiently. Our technicians are experienced, knowledgeable, and use state-of-the-art technology and equipment to best service every one of our customers.
