After the Fire: Ridding Your Home of Odors

No matter the scale of damage after a house fire, the experience can be traumatizing and at the very least, stressful! But don’t worry; The Steam Team has your back. There’s no fire or smoke damage that we can’t handle! And when it comes to smoke damage, we know exactly how to bring back that fresh scent you’ve been missing! Below are three tips to rid your home of smoke odor after a house fire.

 

Properly Ventilate the Area

 

After a fire, your home needs a ton of fresh air! It’s highly important that you properly ventilate the affected area. How do you do this? By opening all doors and windows (keep pets from escaping by using baby gates at the entrances to your home), and place box fans all around the area. Set them to high! This will help push contaminated air out of your home.

 

Do Some Deep Cleaning

 

Unfortunately, the only way to permanently remove smoke odor is to properly clean everything. This means gathering up linens to be washed and/or dry cleaned (couch covers, blankets and sheets, clothing, etc). It also means washing your drapes, walls, and thoroughly cleaning all surfaces in your home. If the task is too heavy, call in a professional cleaning company!

 

Call the Steam Cleaners

Quick Professional Tips to Make the Best First Impressions with House Guests

With all of the holidays around the corner, there’s no doubt that many of us will be sharing our homes with guests whether they’re family, neighbors, or friends. While all of the time we get to spend together is joyous and celebratory, it involves a lot of preparation and a lot of clean up both before and after.

 

Decide What’s ‘Essential’ and ‘Non-Essential’

Before you begin cleaning, the best way to prioritize your home is to decide what’s essential and what’s non-essential. If you have a buildup of clutter, that may be on your ‘essential’ list as clutter usually makes a space feel smaller and is more difficult to clean. On the other hand, if you haven’t checked your air ducts in a while, that may fall on your ‘non-essential’ list. In other words; don’t stress about your air ducts if you’re not able to get to them before company is coming over.

 

Allow Yourself Enough Time

This may mean different things for different people. For some, you may want to allow yourself enough time to hammer out your cleaning schedule; something different on each day. For others, this may mean you’re allowing yourself enough time to hire the professionals to come in and thoroughly clean your home top to bottom.

 

Take a Load Off, Put Your Feet Up

It’s the holidays- don’t stress yourself out about cleaning for your house guests. Instead spend that time planning your meals for the big day, picking out decorations or games, and of course- on the day of- spending quality time with your people. The most relaxing choice for you is to call in the professionals and let them take care of the rest!


Here at The Steam Team, we’ve got you covered with all of your cleaning needs. From steam cleaning carpet, tile and grout, and even window treatments- we can make your house sparkle and shine just in time for your guests.

Leather Cleaning

If you’re looking to replace the furniture in your home, leather is a great option. The older is gets, the better it looks, and it, compliments any room in the house. And believe it or not, it’s also easy to clean and care for! Don’t believe us? Let us explain three simple ways to keep your leather upholstery cleaned and properly conditioned!

 

Clean Spills with Solutions Designed for Leather

 

Accidents happen all of the time, and they can’t be predicted. When caring for and cleaning leather upholstery, it’s important to never let a spill sit on the leather. And when you set out to clean up those spills and stains, avoid using products that aren’t specifically made for leather upholstery. This may sound like a given, but it’s awfully easy to forget to double check. Don’t trust just any furniture cleaner!

 

Vacuum and Dust Frequently

 

This is one of the easiest things you can do to keep your leather upholstery looking sleek and clean. Dusting will keep the leather from looking dingy, and vacuuming helps to speed up this process. An easy way to clean that sofa of yours is to vacuum it while you’re vacuuming your floors!

 

Condition Leather Every 6-12 Months

 

Leather furniture is far too valuable to be neglected! Homeowners should have it properly conditioned every six to twelve months, and maybe more frequently if there are pets who are allowed on the furniture. Remember, the worst thing you can do is nothing!

 

Sometimes all you need are a few tips and hints from the professionals. If your leather upholstery is in need of a good cleaning and conditioning, feel free to contact The Steam Team of Austin! We’ll take care of your furniture as if it were ours- you can count on that!
