Now that summer’s arrived, you may be lacking motivation when it comes to cleaning your office. We get it; the heat gets to everyone! But as always, we’re here to help; below are five tips for tidying up your office and keeping it that way, all summer long! Check out our specials on our website. 


Keep Your Desk Tidy


Keeping your desk clean and orderly bodes well for first impressions by customers. While it’s tempting to eat your lunch at your desk and keep working, we encourage you not to! This makes your desk messy much quicker, and you risk spilling food onto the floor.


Clean Behind Office Furniture


Maybe you have upholstered chairs or couches in your office, and maybe there are too many dust bunnies lurking behind them! These are the places that are most easily forgotten about, and thus cleaned the least. Grab a vacuum or broom and clean out the dust behind your office furniture!


Reorganize Old Files and Paperwork


Most of your documents may be stored electronically, but this has its downsides, so you’re bound to have loose paper lying around somewhere. Keep it organized! Separate files and paperwork into file cabinets and containers. Your office will look so much less cluttered at the end!


Dust Bookshelves and Desks


Grab a dust cloth or some furniture polish and go to town! Removing dust and grime from the surfaces in your office will increase air quality and make things look much neater. It’s tedious, but you won’t regret your hard work in the end.


Take Care of Your Carpet


Your office carpet endures a ton of daily foot traffic, and who knows what else! It’s wise to have it cleaned periodically by the professionals- like The Steam Team! The Steam Team is highly experienced in commercial cleaning, and can restore your carpeting to its best condition. Just give us a call today! Call or visit us at 9901 Burnet Rd.

We were voted best cleaning company in Austin by the Austin Monthly and here is why. So you’ve recently arrived home from your hardware or home-decor store, and you’ve installed your brand new, stunning venetian blinds. They’re much better than the cheaper, flimsy blinds that once plagued your living and dining room, right? Your home is bright, beautiful, and you’ve found the privacy you’ve been searching for. So how do you maintain them? After all, blinds of any type are notorious for collecting dirt and dust.


Here at The Steam Team, we’d like to offer our assistance for maintaining your new venetian blinds! Of course there are quite a few methods of keeping them clean- but don’t worry, we’ll keep it nice and simple for you.


  1. Dry Dusting


Sure, it’s messy and frustrating, but this may be where you want to start, especially if your new blinds haven’t collected too much grime yet. To make things easier on yourself, use an adequate dusting cloth. This means, find a cloth that collects the dust and doesn’t let it wander into the air, or back onto the blinds! These cloths can be found just about anywhere (grocery stores, walmarts, etc). Slide the cloth back and forth in a controlled motion.


2. Steam Cleaning


Come on, you had to know that we’d suggest steam cleaning at some point in this blog! But truly- this is the best, most thorough method of cleaning we can offer. And yes- we’re experts! If your blinds have been splashed with grease, or are just too dirty for a dust cloth to handle, you’ll know that this is the way to go. If you’re using your own personal steam cleaning device, then great! If you don’t own one and would prefer not to rent, then contact The Steam Team to tackle this project for you.


Also, don’t forget! The Steam Team can take care of your draperies while we’re helping out with your blinds. We’ll either use a dry cleaning process, or a low-moisture hot water extraction method of cleaning- and we can often clean them without removing them. Even better, right? So don’t hesitate; give us a call today!
