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.

Protect Your Carpet from Wear and Tear In Cedar Park Texas

Once carpet is installed, it’s all about helping to make it last longer, and look brighter, neater, and cleaner. It’s a process, friends! A process which involves many different types of cleaning, and prevention when it comes to wear and tear. There are ways to prevent wear and tear, of course. Today we’ll outline just a few of them, but feel free to get creative!

 

Utilize Area and Oriental Rugs

 

We’re not saying you should hide your beautiful carpet, but laying down area rugs can help protect carpet from wear and tear. The amount of wear and tear your carpet endures will depend on the amount of foot traffic in your home. If you have pets, children, or wear shoes around the house, your carpet will likely deteriorate faster and need extra attention.

 

Remove Shoes at the Doorway

 

There’s a lot of dirt and debris that cling to the bottom of our shoes that we don’t think about. Removing shoes at the doorway (and asking houseguests to do so, too) will not only help reduce wear and tear but also staining and unnecessary messes!

 

Keep Up With Regular Cleaning Routines

 

Vacuuming and shampooing are part of regular carpet cleaning routines. Dusting around the home will also help, as you won’t give it a chance to settle into the carpet fibers. And of course, every now and then, your carpet will need a professional’s attention.

The Best Time of the Year to Clean Your Floors

When you decide to have your floors professionally cleaned for the first time, it’s a big deal.  It means you’re ready to fully eradicate the germs, allergens, and dust mites around your home, and you know the professionals are the best ones for the job. Well done!

 

But now that you’re following through with a professional treatment, you’re bound to have questions! What kind of treatment should be used? Which areas of the house are priority? And most of all, when should the professionals come?

 

Don’t worry- The Steam Team has answers. Below, we’ll discuss a few deciding factors to consider when scheduling a professional cleaning.

 

How Are Your Allergies?

 

If there’s one thing carpets are good at, it’s holding in allergens and pet dander. If you’re prone to sneezing fits, itchy eyes, and other telltale allergy symptoms, we recommend having your floors cleaned after Thanksgiving. Allergens are insufferable this time of year.

 

With The Steam Team’s help, you can avoid a winter of runny noses!

 

How Heavy is the Foot Traffic?

 

With frequent family gatherings, Christmas parties, and other get togethers, the holidays typically bring on an excess amount of foot traffic. Whether it’s Grandpa’s trailing pipe smoke, or your sister’s puppy who’s not-so-housetrained, once the festivities are over, your carpet will need a touch of tender loving care.

 

What’s on the Calendar?

 

Timing is different for everybody. Are you having a guest staying for a while in February? Are you considering putting your house on the market in the spring? Thinking of your future timeline can help you pick the perfect time to clean the floors what will be most worth your while.


This holiday season, give your home the gift of freshly steam cleaned carpeting. Santa- we mean, The Steam Team insists!
