Basic Rules for Cleaning Up Stains on Upholstery

Ah, upholstered furniture… doesn’t it look so great in our homes? We think so. But i looks especially great when it’s kept clean and taken care of! So let’s review a few basic rules for cleaning up stains on upholstered furniture, because no matter how hard we try, we simply can’t prevent accidents from happening!

And don’t forget; The Steam Team is always standing by, waiting to help you out!


Get to Cleaning Right Away!


We’re really hoping you know to do this already, but we’ll remind you: it’s important to tackle the stain as soon as you spot it! Doing so puts you miles ahead in the stain removal game; trust us. When cleaning, start by checking for any cleaning codes or instructions that could be on the label of your furniture. Some upholstery requires specific solvents, or can’t be cleaned with water, etc. If there aren’t any cleaning codes, simply perform a spot test on an inconspicuous area of the furniture.


Blot, Don’t Rub


This is another important rule when it comes to cleaning your upholstery, no matter what material it’s made out of! Blotting a stain instead of rubbing it keeps the stain from spreading! Blot the stain away with a clean white cloth (so that you can see the stain being removed from your upholstery).


Vacuum Regularly


It’s a chore that can’t be avoided or procrastinated: Vacuuming. Upholstery should be vacuumed frequently in order to keep its fabric in good condition, and of course to remove all of the dirt, dust, and crumbs that lurk in its crevices and underneath our cushions. Use your upholstery attachment to reach those tough-to-vacuum areas, and you’re good to go!


Finally, we recommend you call The Steam Team periodically for a thorough, deep cleaning. The Steam Team has over a decade of experience caring for furniture just like yours, so don’t be shy. Give us a call today!

These areas often get neglected when cleaning time comes around, so make sure you’re tackling that dust!


Cleaning Before You Settle


Before you settle into your new home, it’s likely that you want to properly clean it. Sure, it looks brand new but you never know how much dust is lurking in the carpet, or on the window blinds! Take some time to really deep clean your home before you settle in; you won’t regret it.

3 Benefits to Steam Cleaning Your Home

There are many different methods to cleaning various areas around the home, but there’s one method that you can use just about everywhere! Steam cleaning uses heat in combination with water and pressure to clean flooring, furniture, and even window treatments. Its versatility is only one of the benefits of steam cleaning, though, are you ready for some more?


Safe Environment, Safe Family, Safe Pets

Steam cleaning is able to clean without using harsh chemicals or comprising effectiveness. The only things a professional-grade steam cleaner will use are hot water, and high water pressure. The two combined are plenty enough to exterminate dirt, dust, and other debris from your home!


Austin Allergens Are No Joke

This year, the oak pollen we’re dealing with in the air is at an all-time high. It’s almost painful! Unfortunately, because pollen and other allergens are all over the ground and in the air, they get tracked into and through our homes. Not only are they tracked in, but they often settle in any crevice they can find (furniture, flooring, air ducts, you name it).


Steam cleaning is one of the most effective ways to blast those allergens out of the home, helping your family to breathe easier and feel healthier.


Control Stains and Odors

Saving the best for last, steam cleaning is great for eliminating pet odors (or any other odors) and stains of any caliber due to the use of intensely high temperatures. Any germs that are sticking around causing odors in your carpet fibers, grout, or even furniture- steam cleaning is able to pull those out and blast anything that’s left, removing the odor (and any stain).

How to Keep Hardwood Flooring Looking New

Hardwood floors are a great choice when it comes to your new home- they’re beautiful, durable, mostly easy to maintain and last a lifetime (literally). Homes that are centuries old have some of the most gorgeous hardwood floors throughout every room and they still look as gorgeous as they did from day one. But, that beauty doesn’t come without some tender love and care over the years- so, how do you keep hardwood flooring looking new?


Detecting Dirt and Dust

Who knows what’s truly lurking against the grain of those beautiful planks? Dirt and dust can hide quite inconspicuously. Just as grime and other dust particles gather around various surfaces, furniture, and fabrics; it settles on your hardwood floors in plain sight.


When you sweep your floors, the dirt and dust are pushed around and could nestle themselves into the cracks and crevices between hardwood planks. So, instead of sweeping...


Dust and Vacuum

FInd a duster or even just a microfiber cloth and run it over your floors to get all of the dust without being too harsh on your floors. Then, couple this with a vacuum and you won’t have to worry about too many particles lodging themselves between the planks of your floors and collecting over time.


Treating Spills and Stains

Rule #1 of cleaning: if it spills, it stays… until somebody comes to clean it up. To keep your hardwood flooring looking clean and pristine, tackle spills and stains right away!


Steam Clean

Whenever your floors are looking dull or seem to be extra dirty, give us a call at The Steam Team. We’re happy to bring our equipment over and give your floors a deep, thorough cleaning.


Throughout the years, hardwood floors can become scuffed and scratched from shoes, furniture, and just general wear and tear. If you’re noticing these things about your hardwoods, it may be time to talk refinishing. We’ve got your back!



How to Freshen Up Your Mattress

Let’s think about it. We sleep for approximately a third of our lifetime, and that’s likely on a mattress. While it’s likely not the same mattress we sleep on, our mattresses are still the last things we think of on cleaning day! But the truth is that our mattresses are notorious for hoarding allergens and dust mites! When was your mattress last cleaned? Today we’re going to review how to freshen up your mattress so that you can sleep deeper- and cleaner!

 

Wash Bedding

 

Let’s start with the easiest part: washing all of the bedding. Remove all of your comforters, blankets, sheets, pillowcases, and that mattress cover. Line it up to be washed! Your washer will properly sanitize your bedding while you’re freshening up your mattress!

 

Mix a Solution for Your Mattress

 

Next, we’re going to mix a simple solution for your mattress. The first step is to find a mason jar, and fill it to the brim with baking soda. Next, we need essential oils. You can choose a relaxing, soothing oil like Lavender, or a more refreshing oil like Lemon or Eucalyptus. It’s your personal choice here! Add a few drops of these oils to your baking soda. Sift the solution over your mattress thoroughly, and enjoy the aroma! Let it sit for about an hour.

 

Vacuum Your Mattress

 

The oils and baking soda should have drawn out oils and moisture from your mattress, and it’s time to finish up! The final step is to vacuum over your mattress. Vacuum over any excess dirt, and of course, our baking soda mixture. You can use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum to ensure that you reach every particle!


Don’t hesitate to give The Steam Team a call for help with any cleaning and restoration project! We’re available 24/7 and love helping you out! So today, freshen up your mattress- before you forget again. And down the road, rely on us for cleaning project you may have!

How To Avoid Carpet Shrinkage

Our carpets are made up of fibers that- over time- actually end up shrinking in certain conditions. A shrinking carpet is not an easy eyesore to cover up, but it is something you can avoid. First, let’s start with the basics.

 

What Causes Carpet to Shrink?

There’s not one thing that causes carpet shrinkage. In fact, there are several mistakes you may make that could be inadvertently damaging your carpet. For example, carpet can shrink if there’s excess water on it for too long of a time (this usually happens when soaking carpet to remove stains). On the flip side, how you end up drying the carpet following cleanup can affect the fibers, too. Water temperature can be another factor- among many others- causing your carpet fibers to shrink. Now, let’s see how we can prevent these occurrences and keep our carpet in its best condition!

 

How To Avoid Shrinking Your Carpet

First thing’s first: hire a professional carpet cleaning company. We’re not just saying that because we’re The Steam Team, we’re saying that because it’s really true. Do your research and find the most knowledgeable cleaning company out there to handle your carpet.

 

Our trained technicians have extensive experience working with carpeting, ensuring that the fibers are treated with the right temperature of water and the floors are dried accurately so as to not damage them in any way.

 

Besides calling in the professionals, be careful what you choose to clean your carpet with before they come. Sometimes, when it comes to stains, homeowners will attempt to use various cleaning products to remove the stain from their carpets before giving up and calling in the professionals afterward. Be wary of this- mixing products or using harsh products in general can often damage your carpet fibers. Check out our other blogs on caring for your carpet if you need any other tips and tricks!

Best Carpet Cleaning Options Austin Texas

Do you know what the best methods are for cleaning your carpet? There’s certainly more than one! Today we’ll go over three methods of carpet cleaning, and you can decide which one is best for you. But as always, we recommend steam cleaning; it’s the most effective out of the three we’ll list here! The Steam Team has been serving the Austin community for over a decade now; we’d love to come out and care for your flooring!

 

Sweeping and Vacuuming

 

Sweeping and vacuuming are chores that definitely make the routine list. It’s necessary to sweep and vacuum carpeting on a daily basis to pick up dirt, sand, dander, dust mites, crumbs, and other unsightly things we don’t want camping out in our carpet! But of course, after so much foot traffic and so many spills, vacuuming may not cut it.

 

Shampooing

 

Carpet shampooing is typically that step you take when vacuuming no longer restores your carpet like it used to. There are many products and tools available on the market for shampooing your carpet; be careful with certain chemicals and make sure to perform a spot test on an inconspicuous area of your flooring!

 

Hot Water Extraction

 

Hot water extraction, or rather- steam cleaning, is the method we prefer and always recommend! Using absolutely no chemicals (nothing but hot water and high pressure, in fact), a professional grade steam cleaning machine can reach deep within the fibers of your carpet, and extract everything from dust to dander!

 

The Steam Team has ten years of experience in steam cleaning carpets, and many other types of flooring, too! So don’t even bother with rental machines or DIY methods; skip straight to hiring the professionals! They’ll have all of the right equipment, knowledge, and experience needed for the job! Give us a call today.

Professional Carpet Cleaning Austin Tx

Ah… keeping carpet clean. The struggle! It’s not easy, especially if there are pets or children in the home. Or if you’re just clumsy and prone to spilling food and drinks! But don’t worry, if ever you’re in a true pickle with your carpet, you can always call in the professionals, like The Steam Team! We have plenty of experience and expertise when it comes to keeping carpet clean. But until we arrive, follow these 5 guidelines:

 

Place Doormats at Entrances and Exits

 

Placing doormats at the entrances and exits of your home will help catch dirt and dust before it reaches your carpet. Isn’t that a handy trick? It’ll save you time and inconvenience when vacuuming, too!

 

Remove Shoes at the Door

 

Like the doormats, removing shoes at your door will keep dirt off of carpet. Encourage every member of the household to do this, especially children (their shoes are always the muddiest!).

 

Vacuum Often

 

Carpet should be vacuumed at least weekly to keep up with dirt and dust around the home. It also prevents carpet fibers from becoming matted down, which is very unsightly. Keep your carpet clean and soft by vacuuming on the regular.

 

Clean Up Spills and Stains Immediately

 

This is rule #1 to carpet cleaning! As soon as an accident happens, clean it up! Letting liquids and spills sit on the floor increases their chances of staining your carpet!

 

Call the Professionals Periodically

 

It’s wise to occasionally call in the professionals for a deep cleaning! Sometimes, there’s only so much we can do for our carpet, and we need to let the pro’s step in.


Following these five simple “rules,” will help your carpet stay clean and looking great! And as always, don’t hesitate to give The Steam Team a call when you need assistance. We’re your #1 option for professional cleaning and restoration; let us prove it to you.

Cleaning And Preparing Your Flooring

Adopting a pet is a monumental decision -- they take a lot of our time and attention, cause messes around the house, and unfortunately damage things unintentionally. No matter what type of flooring you have in your home, chances are you’re going to get really familiar with cleaning and caring for it really quick as this new member of your family grows. We’re here to help! Voted best carpet cleaning in Austin, Texas. 

 

Start Simple: Sweeping

 

To start, you’ll be doing more sweeping than you’re used to. Tile and hardwood floors will need to be swept weekly, or multiple times a week depending on how much your pet sheds. Even if they don’t shed, just having their four furry paws running around the home moves the dust and other dirt around the floors. A broom with a dusting attachment may work better to grab hold of pet fur and dander.

 

Don’t forget to vacuum your carpets, either. Anything that you can see on your hardwoods or tile flooring is going into your carpet fibers and staying there until you come around to vacuum!

 

Now, Let’s Talk Stains

 

Dirt and mud are going to be the two most common outside factors you’ll be dealing with inside. As soon as any moisture touches dirt outside, it turns to mud and our furry friends step in it, get it stuck to them, and then proceed to track it all around the house. The best way to handle mud initially is to let it try before trying to vacuuming up any dirt that you can see. However, over time, the smaller dirt particles left behind are going to build up in your carpet and will eventually need a stronger suction to remove them (like steam cleaning) before causing stains.

 

For urine and feces stains and/or odors, the best way to take care of these is to blot up any additional feces or urine so as to not let it soak into the carpet. In dire cases, it’s best to call in the professionals.

 

A good steam cleaning will do your carpet wonders, and a professional steam cleaning company will use nothing but hot water, and high water pressure. It’s an easy, environmentally friendly way to rid your home of these nasty stains and odors. The Steam Team of Austin was voted best carpet cleaning company

Are You Suffering From Flood Damage?

Restoration

Restoration

With the heavy, heavy rains our city has experienced over the last few months and the devastating weather that surrounding areas have experienced, it’s extremely important that homeowners know what they should and should not do after a flood.

 

Do: Contact Your Insurance Company

 

First things first: contact your insurance company to figure out exactly what they cover. Remember to be straightforward about the incident so that there isn’t any confusion down the line. Then, call us! The Steam Team will immediately come out and help you through the cleanup and water extraction process.

 

Don’t: Try to Clean Up Immediately

 

We know how tempting it can be to get back in your home and try to clean up the entire mess, but it can be dangerous and even detrimental to your health. Before you start to dive in and clean up, talk to your insurance company and a professional restoration company first.

 

Do: Keep An Eye Out for Mold Spores

 

To protect  yourself against mold spores, be sure to purchase masks from your local pharmacy or department store. Wear them as you begin the process of cleaning up. If you spot any items that have already been affected by mold spores, take them outside immediately. This is where you’ll need to clean them, to prevent the mold from spreading indoors.

 

Don’t: Feel Overwhelmed

 

It takes time. Extracting the water alone is time consuming and a very careful process. If too much water is pumped out too quickly, you risk causing your walls to collapse from the pressure. To keep this from happening, only two to three feet of water are pumped out at a time. So remember to be patient, and let the professionals do what they do best.

 

We’re always here to help, no matter the time of day. Give us a call if you’re in need of water damage restoration, or even just a routine steam cleaning for your furniture!

 

The Best Way to Treat Furniture

Furniture Cleaning 

Furniture Cleaning 

 

Now, we all know that nothing lasts forever, but we sure can try, can’t we? We can have a little hope that the brand new leather furniture set we just brought home can, well, last a lifetime. Leather is certainly known for its longevity, but also its easy care, and its comfort. So let’s talk about a few ways in which we can help leather last as long as we’d like for it to!

 

Properly Condition Leather

 

Condition leather furniture every six to twelve months. Definitely make sure you’re using the correct product, as leather is a sensitive material and not all pieces of furniture require the same cleaner or conditioner. There should be a tag on your furniture that informs you of what to use!

 

Clean with the Right Tools

 

In addition to your vacuum cleaner’s handy upholstery attachment, you’ll want to use a soft, dry cloth to clean your leather furniture. Avoid harsh tools like bristle brushes.

 

Blot Spills - Don’t Wipe Them

 

This is a lesser known fact! Wiping up a spill or stain may cause the moisture to spread, and we want to absorb it! So blot each spill carefully; you can try this on other materials like carpet and fabric, too.

 

Vacuum Nooks and Crannies

 

You can easily use an upholstery attachment to vacuum dust, dirt, and debris from the corners of your furniture. As for the surface of your furniture, use a damp, soft cloth to wipe off dirt and other everyday messes!

 

For all of your leather care and conditioning needs, The Steam Team is here for you. We’ve been serving the Austin community for over a decade, and we love it! If your leather upholstered furniture needs a good deep cleaning or a thorough conditioning, you know who to call!

How Often Should You Do Cleaning in Austin Texas?

Cleaning Austin

Cleaning Austin

When it comes to keeping carpet and flooring clean and tidy, homeowners wonder how often they should vacuum. The answer comes down to one simple factor: how much foot traffic your carpet endures on a daily basis. Below, we’ll go over a few factors that make a difference in the cleanliness of your carpet, and of course, we’ll tell you how often you should be vacuuming.

 

Typically, carpet should be vacuumed about once a week. But the factors laid out below will mean that you’ll have to vacuum a bit more frequently.

 

Pets

 

Pets certainly play a role in making our carpet more dirty. From muddy paws, to urine and feces stains, it can feel as if you’re constantly cleaning up after them! Vacuum twice a week to pick up the extra dirt and dander that our loving, adorable pets leave behind- and don’t sweat it, as a professional cleaning company can always come in and help out!

 

Children

 

With children running around the house in their dirty shoes (or bare feet), it can be difficult to keep your carpet clean! Vacuum twice weekly, or try teaching your children to leave their dirty shoes at the entrance of your home; this can cut down on the amount of dirt and mud that’s tracked all over your flooring! It’s a good practice.

 

A Crowded Home

 

Are there a lot of people living in your home? Well, there’s nothing wrong with that, but you may be vacuuming more often than you wish! Vacuum 2-3 times a week, depending on the messes your guests make!

 

The Steam Team is a team of trained experts who have many years of experience in professional carpet cleaning. If your carpet is in need of a deep cleaning, don’t hesitate- pick up the phone and give us a call! We’re available 24/7 to help you out!

Safety First! Are Your Cleaning Products Safe for Your Home?

Austin Texas Cleaning

Austin Texas Cleaning

With such a variety of cleaning products on the shelf, it’s difficult to make a decision as to what would be ‘best’ for your home. Functionality aside, how can you be sure that the chemicals you’re bringing into your home are safe? That concern grows when children or pets are added in the mix -- so, for today’s blog, we’ve put together those chemicals you should stay away from in cleaning products and a great alternative for safe and effective cleaning at home.

 

Number one on our list (and probably in your home) is everybody’s favorite chemical; ammonia. Ammonia is actually one of the most common chemicals found in household cleaning products and is often encouraged for use on extremely tough spots and stains. BUT ammonia is also known to cause skin irritation, burns, and damage to the respiratory tract. Although ammonia is also found in our bodies and in nature, inhaling it can result in a variety of health effects.

 

Luckily, there are many companies that have already successfully phased out ammonia and many safe and natural cleaners have taken its place. There are also several ingredients that you probably have laying around your house such as lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide, and water that can be mixed to create a safe alternative to ammonia.

 

The best solution to avoid harmful chemicals in your home is to change your cleaning method -- not product. No matter what surface or area you’re cleaning, there’s one method that’s both versatile enough to target practically everything and do it safely and effectively: steam cleaning. Combining high heat, pressure, suction, and water, steam cleaning can turn your stained, faded surfaces back in time to looking brand-new! All with the peace of mind knowing you’re not bringing harmful chemicals into your home.
