Extending the Lifespan of Your Furniture

You love your leather furniture. It’s completely revamped the look of your living room; even house guests have said so! So naturally, you want it to last its longest. Well, fortunately for you, The Steam Team has the answers. Here’s how you can help your leather furniture last as long as possible!

 

Dust and Vacuum

 

Like anything, it’s important to regularly care for leather furniture- not just when you’re spring cleaning. Your leather furniture will need to be dusted frequently to prevent buildup and discoloration. And you’ll also want to vacuum out those nooks and crannies whenever you have your handy vacuum attachment out! Doing so will keep it in tip top shape, which will help it to last longer.

 

Condition Regularly

 

Just like our skin, leather furniture needs frequent conditioning. Conditioning your leather furniture will keep it from drying out and/or cracking. Make sure you’re using the correct product, or hire a professional to perform this task. You definitely don’t want anything to go awry when conditioning your furniture!

Occasionally, give the professionals a call. Your leather furniture can be steam cleaned. And don’t worry; The Steam Team uses so little moisture on your furniture that it won’t be harmed. We can definitely help keep your leather cleaned and conditioned, thus elongating its lifespan.

The Best Tips for Caring for Furniture

Furniture looks wonderful in our homes and offices, and it can last a long time if treated and cared for properly. If you’ve recently purchased leather upholstered furniture and you’re a bit lost when it comes to caring for it, you’re in luck! Because today we have a few great tips for cleaning, conditioning, and caring for your leather upholstery. We hope they’re helpful!

 

Dusting

 

It’s important to keep your leather furniture clean, so every couple of weeks, use a clean, white cloth to dust your furniture. A light colored cloth will help you determine how dirty the leather is. To clean off accumulated dirt use a slightly damp cloth, but first, do a test run in an inconspicuous area on the furniture- just in case the leather absorbs the moisture. It’s also important to blot spills, instead of rubbing them; we don’t want to spread the moisture around!

 

Conditioning

 

Use a leather conditioner every six months to one year. Like our skin, leather can dry out easily and needs to be conditioned periodically! You can purchase specially formulated conditioners- but first check your furniture’s label for important instructions!

 

What NOT To Do

 

There are certain things we shouldn’t do when it comes to caring for leather furniture. For example, we shouldn’t use harsh cleaning solutions, ammonia, or detergents. We also should avoid using sharp objects near leather, as it tends to scratch easily! Arts and crafts should stay at the table, not on the couch. It’s also wise to avoid placing printed materials on leather; it absorbs the dyes too easily!

Area and oriental rugs: sometimes they’re just something to cover a stain with, or a lovely living room accessory, and sometimes they’re precious family heirlooms. Either way, they create a beautiful atmosphere in the home, and- they need to be cleaned periodically. Just how they’re cleaned is the question we’ll answer today!

 

Keeping Area & Oriental Rugs Clean

 

Rugs can trap dirt, debris, dust, and allergens in your home. Not only do these materials damage the carpet fibers in your rugs, but your kiddos lay on them, the pets nap on them, and you walk on them daily, pushing clouds of dust into the air. This is why they must be cleaned on a regular basis. But don’t worry- The Steam Team can remove these particles with pressurized air, and restore them to a much better condition through a process that’s been practiced for several years!

 

Let’s take a closer look at how The Steam Team can help keep your rugs looking beautiful...

 

Steam Cleaning: Trust the Professionals

 

The Steam Team starts the cleaning process by inspecting your textile with expert knowledge. We can determine the best cleaning type for your rugs just by looking at the fibers and dyes involved. Then we’ll remove dirt and soil with a pile lifter and vacuum. Before rinsing and finally, drying, the rugs are sprayed with special agents which correspond to the rug type. And don’t worry- we won’t leave until we perform a final inspection to make sure dirt and debris have been removed, and your rugs are looking fantastic. Call 512 451-8326 today. 


When you entrust The Steam Team to take care of your area and oriental rugs, you can rest assured that they’re safe, and that we know exactly what we’re doing! We use tools that are gentle and safe for your area and oriental rugs, because we know how important they are to you- and we want to help elongate their lifespan.

Carpet Cleaning: Let's Discuss Drying Time in Austin, Texas

Carpet & Rug Cleaning in Austin, TX

Perhaps your carpet is in need of a professional’s advice and attention! Whether it be mud stains from the new puppy (so, maybe that isn’t mud…?), traffic stains, or general wear and tear, The Steam Team’s trained professionals are always here to help! We’ll briefly discuss our cleaning process, but today we mainly want to focus on drying time! Obviously carpet cleaning requires the usage of water/moisture, which begs the question: how long should the carpet take to dry, and is my flooring at risk for mold growth?

 

Our Cleaning Process

 

In the home or office, it doesn’t matter how soiled the carpet has become. In most cases we can restore your flooring to its original condition. Our high-powered, professional-grade equipment will use nothing but intense heat and water pressure to extract dirt, debris, and stains from your carpet.

 

Our Drying Process

 

Of course, your carpet will not dry instantly, despite our cleaning methods. And we understand that you’ll want to return to your daily routines as quickly as possible- so we recommend walking barefoot across your carpet, with clean feet! You shouldn’t expect your carpet to be anything but damp- not soaked, or sopping with moisture. So as long as your feet are clean, if you must, you may walk through your home or office without risk.

 

We can expedite the drying process by placing box fans throughout the room, or by turning on ceiling fans. Just make sure your ceiling fans are clean, as well, to avoid dust from falling onto your freshly steam cleaned carpet! And since this process won’t take long at all- there’s no reason to worry about mold growth.


The Steam Team is the leading carpet cleaner of Austin, TX, and is always happy to come out to your home or place of business, to clean your carpet with not only enthusiasm, but also with professionalism, and expertise. If you’re in need of a professional cleaning- just give us a call!
