4 Tips for Professional Cleaning in Austin

Fortunately our flooring throughout our homes lasts for years and years to come, but unfortunately this makes stains (over time) inevitable. You’re probably familiar with this scenario: shattering as a glass of wine tumbles to the floor. The spill splashes everywhere- the carpet, the couch, your clothes… Don’t panic! We’ve got just the tips for you.

 

Don’t Leave Anything Behind

 

The biggest problem homeowners face when they’re dealing with stains is the amount of residue left behind from the initial incident. The best way to avoid lasting stains or anything permanent, is to ensure that nothing is left behind after the spill. If you’re dealing with a solid mess, you can easily pick it up with any utensil, paper towel, bag, or even cloth and then blot away anything that may be remaining.

 

Do NOT Scrub

 

So often we see stains that have been scrubbed further into carpet fibers or grout because of how they were handled initially. It’s extremely important that you never scrub spills or messes because it will only push them further into the flooring -- always, always, always blot away any excess!

 

Use Homemade Cleaner

 

Be sure to use a cleaner that will work with the mess you’re dealing with. Homemade cleaners aren’t always going to do the trick, especially for stains like pet urine. However, a generally good solution to use for most spills or messes is made by combining 1 tsp. dish soap, ¼ tsp. white vinegar, and 4 cups warm water.

That’s why we’ve compiled this list of five expert ways to take care of your furniture and upholstery- and what The Steam Team believes is the best way. Read on to discover our secrets!

 

Vacuum Regularly

 

That upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner has never come more in handy! Put it to good use on your upholstery and furniture. It can reach the tough nooks and crannies, underneath the cushions; there are no limits!

 

Dust Often

 

Dusting helps take the load off when it comes to cleaning day, and ultimately prevents debris and grime but building up. It also helps to create a healthier atmosphere! Use your upholstery attachment to suction the dust, or a microfiber cloth to do it the old fashioned way.

 

Condition Leather Furniture

 

Just like our skin, leather dries out, and needs to be conditioned periodically. Make sure you’re using the correct product for your furniture (you can check its care label just like you would your favorite tshirt).

 

Become a Stain-Removal Expert

 

Accidents are going to happen no matter what we do, but we can learn how to prepare for them! When it comes to leather furniture, different types of leather are used, and often require a certain cleaner.

 

Steam Cleaning

 

Steam cleaning is, of course, our preferred method. It can safely and effectively remove stains from just about anything- and it doesn’t leave behind any harmful residue (or anything you’ll need to clean up afterward!). The Steam Team has been taking care of leather and upholstery for over a decade, and can restore your furniture to its original condition in a sinch.
