Starting with Vacuuming

 

There’s a handy upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner that does wonders for cleaning your furniture! It can reach inside those nooks and crannies like nobody’s business! It can also reach underneath cushions and pillows for your convenience. You can easily remove dirt, dust, pet fur, and dander from your furniture.

 

Moving onto Stain Removal

 

Are there any unsightly stains or spots on your upholstery? Let’s remove them! In most cases, stains can be removed with the right cleaning solution and a little bit of patience and elbow grease. In worse cases, a professional may need to be called in, like The Steam Team. Steam cleaning is great for restoring your upholstered furniture to its former glory!

 

Finishing by Steam Cleaning

 

Finally, consider steam cleaning your upholstery. A professional grade steam cleaning machine won’t harm your furniture, and it won’t use any chemicals to clean it. High pressurized water and hot, hot steam are all that’s needed in this process! Your furniture will look absolutely amazing after a good old fashioned steam cleaning, done by yours truly, The Steam Team.

Although curtains, blinds, and other window treatments are usually the last thing on your mind (even when cleaning), they easily gather dirt, dust, and other grime just as quickly as anything else. How often you clean your window treatments depends on how quickly you notice your house gets dirty in general, right? Here’s a quick guide to help you best maintain your drapery and other window treatments. Check out our testimonials at The Steam Team of Austin, Texas. 

 

Take a Close Look at the Material

 

Believe it or not, the material of your window treatments will determine how often they need to be cleaned and just how to clean them. For every material, be sure to check the care instructions before using any cleaning product or method on it.

 

The Material Determines the Cleaning Method

 

For most draperies, we recommend steam cleaning the material. Since steam cleaning doesn’t use any harsh chemicals, most fabrics and other materials can withstand (and benefit from) a thorough steam clean. For sheer material and other thin fabrics, it’s best to call in the professionals. On the other hand, if you’re dealing with heavier materials that are pretty thick, it’s a good idea to phone the professionals, too. It takes the entire task right off your hands, you know the job will get done right, and you know the job will be done well.

 

In most cases, steam cleaning is your best option for those semi-annual thorough cleanings. Here at The Steam Team, we specialize in steam cleaning upholstery, flooring, and yes -- even those custom window treatments. Our technicians are highly trained professionals that use only the latest equipment in the industry. If you haven’t paid attention to your drapes recently, now’s the perfect time! Give us a call today to set up an appointment with one of our experienced technicians who will walk you through our process and advise you on the what the best care for your home would be.
