3 Ways to Care for Your Textiles

Do you have leather upholstered furniture that could use a thorough cleaning and conditioning? Leather is a lot like our skin; it’s delicate, and requires a certain level of care. It has to stay moisturized and clean at the same time. That’s why below, The Steam Team has laid out three ways to care for your leather upholstery. We’re always here to help! And don’t forget; we’re only a phone call away!

 

Cleaning Leather Furniture

 

When it comes to cleaning leather furniture, always start by wiping it down with a clean, dry cloth. Use a damp cloth if you come across any dirt spots, but remember not to make the leather wet. Use a vacuum attachment to reach corners and crevices, and to clean out from underneath cushions. When it comes to cleaning up spills and stains, act quickly, and only use cleaning formulas that are specifically made for leather.

 

Increasing Leather’s Longevity

 

There are some things you can do to help your leather last its longest. For instance, placing your leather upholstered furniture away from direct sunlight will help it not to fade and crack. If it does come into contact with sunlight, rotating it every once in a while will also help. Make sure you’re also applying a leather conditioner on the regular!

 

Storing Leather Upholstery Properly

 

When it comes time to store your leather furniture, have it professionally cleaned, and make sure it thoroughly dries before storing it. You can place it on top of wooden pallets to keep it off of the ground, and remember never to wrap leather as it can cause moisture to lock in and ruin the furniture!

 

If your leather upholstery could use a good deep cleaning, we strongly recommend steam cleaning it! Preferably, we’d have you call us: the professionals. The Steam Team is a group of trained experts who specialize in several cleaning and restoration projects. We’re available 24/7 to help you out!

Inevitably, your carpet takes a beating and collects debris such as dirt, dust mites, allergens, and even germs and bacteria! And sometimes, vacuuming just doesn’t cut it. So this fall, let’s try something new: steam cleaning. There are many benefits to steam cleaning that far surpass those of vacuuming and other ways of cleaning.

 

The Perfect Time for Steam Cleaning

 

In Austin we deal with year-round allergens, but this time of the year especially is when allergens begin to peak and the changes in the weather cause us to fall under the weather! But, did you know that steam cleaning kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria and squashes those allergens?

 

If you’re suffering from a stuffy nose or itchy throat, now might just be the perfect time to call in a steam cleaning company.

 

Benefits of Steam Cleaning

 

There’s nothing involved in steam cleaning except for extreme heat and pressurized water -- yes, you read that correctly. Steam cleaning gets the job done without harmful chemicals. It also doesn’t leave behind any residue that may be otherwise harmful to your children or pets. Just think of the savings you’ll be able to take advantage of when you don’t have to purchase tons and tons of cleaning agents for your home.
