How You Can Protect Your Carpet

Here at The Steam Team, we’re always looking for ways to keep carpet cleaner. Sometimes we can even do this without steam cleaning, although we always recommend having your carpet deep cleaned every so often. But until then, let’s look at three different ways you can protect your carpet from wear and tear! 


Remove Shoes at the Entrance


This is among the most simple things you can do to protect your carpet: remove yours and everyone else’s shoes at the entrance to your home. You can purchase a decorative basket or shoe rack for the shoes to stay while you have guests over! Turn this simple way of protecting your carpet into a fun and easy DIY project. 


Decorate With Area Rugs


Area rugs are another great way we can protect our carpet from wear and tear! We’re not saying you should cover all of your carpet. Just maybe those areas that receive the highest amount of foot traffic, like entryways, hallways, and living rooms. Lay area rugs down to prevent more wear and tear, and enjoy decorating your home while you do it! 


Deep Clean Your Carpet


Eliminate stains and signs of wear and tear by having your carpet deep cleaned occasionally! A professional-grade steam cleaning machine, like the ones we have here at The Steam Team, are powerful enough to extract dirt and grime from the fibers of your carpet, but gentle enough not to harm the carpet itself! So if it’s been a while since your carpet has seen the professionals, give The Steam Team a call. We have plenty of experience in both protecting and cleaning carpet; you’ll be amazed by our results! 


Don’t hesitate. Give The Steam Team a call today. They’ll provide a clean that you can truly trust, and one that will last a while, too! 


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!

Making Upholstery Look New Again: The Best Way to Clean

Here at The Steam Team, we know full well the struggle it can be to keep your upholstery clean and tidy (especially if you have pets or small children in your home; they tend to increase the amount of accidents that occur). That’s why we’ve compiled the best tips for cleaning it up and keeping it that way! Read on for more information!


Preventing Wear and Tear: Dusting


Dusting is and always will be an important part of keeping your upholstered furniture clean. You don’t have to do it too often, folks. But it does need to be done! Yes, dust collects on our furniture too! You can use your handy vacuum attachment to rid your furniture of dust mites and other allergens.


Taking Care of the Big Chunks: Vacuuming


We suggest vacuuming your upholstered furniture at least once weekly! Perhaps it’ll need more frequent vacuuming if your pets or kiddos are around. Yes, we know there are crumbs in those corners… it’s time to bring them out! Take care of the big chunks by vacuuming frequently and paying close attention to detail while doing so!


The Final Steps: Calling in The Professionals


Sometimes a mess or a stain is too heavy for us to handle, and the professionals need to be called! This is when The Steam Team comes in to play! We’ll come out to your home, inspect your upholstery, and get to cleaning and removing stains (both old and new) right away! When we’re finished with your furniture, it’ll look like brand new again! You’ll be amazed at the results we come up with.


So there you have it, friends! This has been a basic guide to keeping your upholstery clean long term. And of course, The Steam Team is always here for you, through thick and thin! We’re available 24/7 for whatever you may need. Just say the word, and we’ll be out ASAP!

Disinfectant Electrostatic Cleaning From The Steam Team

Do you clean your home or business in the Austin area by yourself with standard house cleaners? If so, you’re probably doing a fine job, but you might not be able to achieve a complete clean. Thousands of harmful microbial organisms will still be lurking around, unless of course you call in The Steam Team. We have an anti-microbial process that involves a powerful disinfectant, light-activated coating and electrostatic application that will rid your property of these harmful organisms.


Our process will start with our technicians showing up to apply a mist-like EPA approved solution that is completely non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and safe for pets and children. This solution will be applied to every accessible surface in the building, and works on any material, porous or non-porous.


The thing that keeps most cleaners from dealing with germs effectively is the protective layer around the germ called the “biofilm”. The biofilm protects the germ and allows it to double every twenty minutes or so. Our process will break down this biofilm quickly, and without any toxic chemicals.


Our next step will be to use a powerful deodorizer. This will neutralize any traces of ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, gasoline and formaldehyde, eliminating any odors that come with them such as the smell of cigarettes, pet urine, feces, skunk and decay.


The last step in the process is to ensure lasting protection for your newly disinfected property. That’s why our professionals will apply a microbiostatic antimicrobial coating to your surfaces, using our electrostatic spraying process, ensuring 90 days of protection. This coating will fight microbial growth and control bacteria and germs.


So if you need your home fully disinfected, you need The Steam Team’s process. For more information on electrostatic cleaning, steam cleaning, fire and water damage restoration, or any of our many other services, please visit The Steam Team website.

The 4 Places You Keep Forgetting to Clean

Keeping your home in tip-top shape is no easy task, especially if you’re cleaning it all on your own without the help of professionals. But that might cause you to overlook some parts of your home that are still very important to keep clean. Here’s a reminder of areas of your home that still need cleaning, but are often overlooked.


Air Vents


Cleaning and dusting every surface in your home is essential for your health, since it ensures that you’re breathing clean air. But are you making sure to also clean the source of that air? Dirty air vents can affect your everyday health, and unfortunately most people don’t clean them as often as they should. Next time you wonder why your cabinets are so dusty, check the vents.


Drapes


Make sure not to skip your curtains or drapes when giving your house a deep clean. Dust, dirt, pollen and even mold can accumulate on drapes left unchecked. Many drapes can’t be cleaned in the washing machine, and require special attention. So be sure you know what kind of clean your drapes need.


Under Appliances


Under and behind many appliances might just be the dirtiest places in your home. Many people never clean these areas at all! Dirt, dust, grime and food can build up in these areas, and you can’t avoid cleaning them forever! If you don’t want to pull out that refrigerator or washing machine and clean all around it, call The Steam Team and let us do it!


Baseboards


Baseboards are often never cleaned, even though cleaning them doesn’t take too much time or effort. They can easily collect dust and dirt over time. Cleaning them can be done with just a damp cloth or a wipe.


The Steam Team


If these areas are too difficult or too inconvenient for you to clean, keep in mind that The Steam Team technicians can do it all! So stop letting these areas of your home get dirtier by the day, give us a call. Visit The Steam Team website for more information.

3 Ways to Keep Carpet from Staining

Carpet is cozy and cushiony; why wouldn’t we want it in our home? Well, one reason is that it can stain easily, but there are several things we can do to prevent staining and discoloration! And when times get tough, you can always rely on the professionals to remove the stain; The Steam Team specializes in that, you know! Below are three quick and simple tips for preventing staining on your carpeting!


Remove Your Shoes at the Door


Let’s start with the basics. It always helps to just remove your shoes at the door. This means that your carpet doesn’t even have the opportunity to come in contact with the dirt, sand, and mud that’s on your shoes! Place a basket or mat near the entrances to your home, and ask guests to remove their shoes, as well.


Clean Up Spills Immediately


It’s always important to clean up spills and accidents as soon as you spot them! The sooner you get to a spill, the less likely it is to stain! Whether you’re using a commercial cleaner or a homemade remedy, just make sure you tackle that stain immediately!


Call in the Professionals


Every once in a while, make you sure you give your carpeting the royal treatment by calling in the professionals!

The Best Ways to Maintain Your Area Rugs

Do you have area rugs in your home? If so, you know the struggle it can be do keep them clean and presentable, and to help them last long! Friends, we’re here to tell you that it isn’t impossible. Below, we have the best tips for caring for and maintaining your area rugs. Just keep reading, and happy cleaning!


Vacuum Your Rugs on the Regular


Let’s start with the basics. It’s important to vacuum your rugs regularly! Think of how frequently you have to sweep and mop your hardwood or stone flooring; those carpets are just as messy. Vacuuming will help keep your rugs in pristine condition, and it will also keep the carpet fibers from becoming matted down and unsightly!


Blot Stains With a Clean Cloth


If you’ve ever spilled something onto your area rugs, you know how difficult stains can be to remove! But don’t worry, we’re here to help. Always blot the wet area with a clean, white cloth. Change out the cloth to make sure it’s always absorbing the liquid. Don’t rub the stain, as this can cause it to spread! Just keep blotting and using your handy dandy household cleaner (one that’s meant for area rugs) until the stain has been removed.


Call in The Steam Team


Finally, we recommend having your area rugs steam cleaned! A professional-grade steam cleaning machine can effectively rid your area rugs of stains (even the older, set in stains). The machine reaches deep within the carpet fibers in your rugs and extracts dirt, dander, dust, and other allergens- and of course, those pesky stains.


Give The Steam Team a call today for help caring for your area rugs! We’ll make sure we treat them with care, and that they look clean and pristine when we’re through with them. So don’t delay; put your trust in The Steam Team today!

All About Cleaning Upholstered Furniture

Upholstered furniture is both comfortable and beautiful- an excellent addition to any family room or sitting room around the house. However, upholstered furniture varies with such a vast selection of fabrics, not every cleaning product on the market is going to target your exact furniture. That’s why we’ve prepared this blog for you- to help you care for your gorgeous upholstery so it will stay that way for as long as it can.


Preventive Tips

First and foremost, avoid placing your upholstered furniture in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can be harmful to our furniture, as it causes the fabric to fade and discolor. Avoid placing upholstery near bright, sunny windows, and rotate the cushions periodically so they wear evenly.


Regular Maintenance

We have one word for you; vacuum. Especially if you have children (and/or pets), crumbs seem to find their way into every crevice of the couch.


Spot treating stains becomes a big part of regular maintenance if there are lots of drinks and snacks around your furniture (a hard thing to avoid with kids). Similarly to spot treating stains on carpet or other fibers, you want to clean up any excess of the spill as soon as you’re able to. And, better safe than sorry, test any product you plan to use on your furniture before applying it in a visible area (just to make sure it won’t damage or discolor the fabric).


When in Doubt, Call the Professionals

The Steam Team can help by treating your upholstery with a fabric protectant! We strongly encourage our customers to contact us about how they can preserve their beautiful pieces of furniture and keep stains, pets, and traffic from damaging their appearance. Not only does our fabric protectant help to resist spills, but it also protects against that harsh sunlight we mentioned earlier- so don’t hesitate to give us a call today!

Top Benefits from Steam Cleaning

Depending on how many feet are sludging through your household, you may only worry about cleaning once or twice per week. However, as those feet increase (whether you gain a few pets or a few kids), those messes will, too. We don’t believe in steam cleaning just because we’re The Steam Team, we’re The Steam Team because we see the effects and benefits from steam cleaning! And today, we’re going to share a few of these with you, too!

 

Effective and Efficient (and Cost Efficient!)

Steam cleaning only needs hot water and the steam cleaner (and the technician, if you hire the professionals). Say goodbye to any mops, buckets, and detergents!

 

Steam Cleaning Eliminates Germs, Bacteria, and Dust Mites

It’s true! Steam cleaning eliminates 99.9% of germs, bacteria, dust mites, and other unsightly things in your home. Anyone in the home who has allergies will also be grateful, as steam cleaning destroys allergens.

 

Additionally, steam cleaning tackles mold easier than any other method we’ve seen. Using solutions like bleach don’t actually stop mold growth, but the high intensity of a steam cleaner does!

As the seasons change, differently allergens and debris are blown around, posing dangers for our HVAC systems and our bodies. It’s important to keep a close eye on your HVAC system during these changes, as additional debris getting stuck in the outdoor unit or extra dirt and dust build up indoors can affect the quality of air throughout your home.

 

Filter Changes

Typically every three months (or 90 days), it’s time for an air filter change. Try not to get the cheapest brand, either, quality is important here. These filter changes make great opportunities to double check the area for anything out of the ordinary- additional debris or grime would be out of the ordinary.

 

Hard to Reach Places

HVAC systems are not the easiest places to clean. Those hard-to-reach places are the areas that accumulate enough dirt, dust, and other grime to spread throughout the entire house (for obvious reasons)! It’s important to focus on these areas, though, because otherwise, you’ll find yourself trying to reach through the air ducts to clean out more grime. If you’re having trouble, don’t hesitate to give the professionals a call.
