The Steam Team is a team of trained professionals who are experts at removing stains, and keep carpet clean, clean, clean. Here are a few spot treating tips that we have to offer; hopefully they help!

 

Always Test Your Cleaning Solution

 

Before you begin to remove the stain, it’s wise to test your cleaning solution, first! Just in case. Isn’t it always better to be safe, rather than sorry? Use the cleaning agent in an inconspicuous area first, to make sure that no discoloration occurs.

 

Blot, Don’t Rub

 

Whenever you’re treating a stain, always blot the stain instead of rubbing it. Rubbing the stain may cause it to spread, or more deeply embed itself into your precious carpet! You certainly don’t want that to happen. So blot gently over and over, until the entire stain has been removed.

Cleaning your carpet in Cedar Park Texas

How clean is your office carpet? When was the last time you spilled your lunch, or the cleaning crew forgot to come by? Can you really trust its appearance? Often times, not. Often times there’s dirt, dust, dander, and more lurking in the fibers of our carpet. And just like our carpet at home, it needs careful intervention! Consider hiring a professional cleaning company to care for your carpet (The Steam Team does high rise cleaning!), and in the meantime, follow these 3 simple guidelines:

 

Don’t Eat Lunch at Your Desk

 

That break room is there for a reason! We know it may seem efficient to eat at your desk and work while doing so, but it increases your chances at dropping food or condiments onto the floor- and staining your flooring. Instead, eat in the break room, and keep your carpet cleaner!

 

Vacuum Frequently

 

Sometimes the cleaning crew doesn’t cut it, or you don’t have one at all. Carpet must be vacuumed at least once a week, regardless of the amount of foot traffic it experiences. In addition to picking up dirt, dust, dander and other grimey substances, it helps the fibers to stay lifted, instead of matted down!

 

Dust Corners and Baseboards

 

Dusting the corners of and baseboards of your office will help, well, keep the dust from getting onto the carpet. Try not to neglect these areas when sprucing up your office. It can do a lot of good in the long run!


Don’t forget- The Steam Team is always standing by, waiting to help out! If your office is in need of a deep cleaning, we’d be happy to come out and spruce it up!

Clean Your House in 3 Easy Steps Tips By The Steam Team of Austin Texas

Cleaning Tips

When was the last time you cleaned your mattress? Can you remember? Most of us can’t, because we’ve never done it before. But whether you’re a newbie to this process, or you’ve just bought a new mattress that you’d like to freshen up, we have three easy steps to thoroughly cleaning your mattress!

 

Step One: Strip the Bed and Vacuum

 

Of course, you’ll want to completely strip your bed and toss your bed linens into the washing machine. Once your bed is completely clear, vacuum your mattress with a (clean) wide brush attachment. Be thorough, scanning back and forth from every edge. This helps to remove, dust mites, dirt, and debris from your mattress.

 

Step Two: Sprinkle Cleaning Mixture Over Mattress

 

Here, baking soda is our best friend! Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda through a sifter, and onto the mattress. Be liberal, and make sure you’ve covered the entire area. This helps to clean and deodorize the surface. You can also add six drops of your favorite essential oil to the mixture for a fresh, relaxing scent. Lavender, anyone?

 

Step Three: Vacuum Excess Cleaning Mixture

 

If you have all the time in the world, you can leave the mixture on your mattress for several hours. However, thirty minutes will also suffice. Thirty minutes is plenty of time to absorb odors, moisture, and break down acids. Finally, vacuum the mixture and all of the grime that it’s brought out!


And there you have it friends: three easy steps to cleaning and refreshing your mattress! Don’t forget to do it periodically. Our mattresses get tons of use! And did you know- a mattress can also be steam cleaned? That’s right! For all of your steam cleaning needs, contact The Steam Team!

There are two types of people when it comes to cleaning. The first type either puts it off as long as possible, and then does a surface clean before people come over, or they make sure their home is always spotless. While most of us would like to be members of group number two, let’s face it – we’re just not.

 

So when company comes over we panic for a good five minutes before starting the hurried process of shoving papers in drawers, haphazardly running the vacuum, and spaying way too much air freshener. Instead of that hassle, here are a few tricks to avoid the panic and enjoy taking people into your home.

If You Have Time, Get The Pros

 

The first trick to impressing your guests and having a clean house is to actually have a clean house. Get your floors and upholstery deep cleaned twice a year and don’t forget your grout, tile, and stone! Keeping up with routine maintenance will make quick cleans a breeze.

Get Rid Of Clutter, But Be Organized

 

If you need to get rid of clutter and get rid of it fast, don’t just shove things in drawers and hope for the best. Take an extra 10 minutes to be smart about it. Put things in the rooms where they belong, keep like products together, and throw away anything you don’t need.

Don’t Waste Time On The Non-Essentials

 

If you’re in a rush, this isn’t the time to make sure all the dust is gone from the top of the fan or start a new, in-depth project. Make sure the floors are clean and free of toys, trash, and random items, wipe down the counters, and clean up the bathroom. This will help your place look sparkling even when you don’t have time for a full clean.

Relax


Finally, make sure to relax and enjoy your guests. They’re visiting to see you, not just your home. Clean up, stay up with your home maintenance, and remember to enjoy yourself– even if you didn’t get those carpet stains removed!
