A New Level of Clean

 

Remember all of those times you cleaned the kitchen, only to have it feel dirty? Sometimes a mop and broom just aren’t enough. When it comes to steam cleaning, however, you’ll know your home is clean- that pressurized water and high heat make it difficult for anything to stand in its way!

 

Kills Dust Mites, Germs, & Bacteria

 

Using nothing but hot water and high water pressure, steam cleaning kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria. It also destroys dust mites that are hidden in the carpet, and in all of those nooks and crannies you’ve been neglecting! It even works on upholstery and fabric furniture!

 

Eases Allergies by Eradicating Allergens

 

Steam cleaning helps to rid your home of allergens, so if you or someone in your household has allergies, they’ll be feeling grateful after a good old fashioned steam cleaning.

 

Cleans Without the Use of Chemicals

 

Hot water, and high pressure. That’s it, friends! Expect there to be absolutely no residue left behind, and no evidence of chemicals.

 

Saves Money on Cleaning Supplies

 

Since a steam cleaning machine does the job without the use of chemicals, you won’t need to buy (or mix) any cleaning solutions! This will save you tons of money in the long run if you just keep at it!

 

So you see, we (The Steam Team) truly believe that steam cleaning is the way to go when it comes to cleaning your home! For a deep cleaning that you can trust, call The Steam Team today- you won’t regret it.

Pet-Proofing Your Carpet and Area Rugs

Carpet looks beautiful in our homes- most of the time. When our beloved pets “mark their territory,” in the wrong place, spill liquids onto the floor, and generally run a muck in our living rooms… our carpet shows it. It’s not as easy to keep carpet looking clean and brand new when there are pets around, but it’s not impossible, either!

 

When you live with pets, certain stains will occur more frequently than others. So gear up, and get ready to battle stains like dirt, mud, and yes… even pet urine.

 

Carpet Cleaning & Stain Removal Tips

 

Mud stains can be removed from carpet fairly easily. Simply clean up all excess clumps of dirt, and layer the stained area with either baking soda, or salt. This will absorb any remaining moisture from the stain. After a few hours, vacuum the excess salt, and use a damp, soapy cloth to blot the remainder of the stain.

 

If you’re battling a urine stain, we recommend starting by absorbing all of the excess moisture from the area. You can use a shop vacuum if you own one, or alternatively, clean paper towels or washcloths.

 

Once the area is dry, begin with a solution of white vinegar and warm water (50/50). Mix enough of this solution to reach deep into your carpet. With a scrub brush, vigorously scrub the mixture into the stain.

 

Other remedies include a mixture of dish detergent and hydrogen peroxide. Apply this solution to your carpet just as you did with the vinegar, and scrub forcefully until the stain has been removed.

 

Finally, if the stain is persistent, it may be time to call in a professional steam cleaning company. For professional results that will leave you shocked, and your carpet spotless, call The Steam Team today!
