Inevitably, your carpet takes a beating and collects debris such as dirt, dust mites, allergens, and even germs and bacteria! And sometimes, vacuuming just doesn’t cut it. So this fall, let’s try something new: steam cleaning. There are many benefits to steam cleaning that far surpass those of vacuuming and other ways of cleaning.

 

The Perfect Time for Steam Cleaning

 

In Austin we deal with year-round allergens, but this time of the year especially is when allergens begin to peak and the changes in the weather cause us to fall under the weather! But, did you know that steam cleaning kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria and squashes those allergens?

 

If you’re suffering from a stuffy nose or itchy throat, now might just be the perfect time to call in a steam cleaning company.

 

Benefits of Steam Cleaning

 

There’s nothing involved in steam cleaning except for extreme heat and pressurized water -- yes, you read that correctly. Steam cleaning gets the job done without harmful chemicals. It also doesn’t leave behind any residue that may be otherwise harmful to your children or pets. Just think of the savings you’ll be able to take advantage of when you don’t have to purchase tons and tons of cleaning agents for your home.

5 Cleaning Mistakes to Avoid During the Summer In Austin, Texas

Grout Cleaning

Grout Cleaning

It’s summertime, and we sure can feel it! Temperatures are rising (along with humidity), and we’re trying our best to keep our homes clean. The door is constantly opening and children and pets are running through the house at random, causing dirt to pile up in the corners of our kitchens and living rooms. But don’t sweat it! We’re going to review a few tips for what not to do this summer while cleaning. And if worse comes to worst, The Steam Team is always standing by to help you out! The best cleaning company in Austin, Texas for grout cleaning.

 

Mistake # 1: Cleaning in the Incorrect Order

 

So, when you set out to clean, where do you start? Most people feel tempted to start with the floor- maybe because it bugs us so much. But this is actually a mistake. Start cleaning upward and work your way down; this way, the dust and debris will settle onto the floor, and you can clean it up last.

 

Mistake # 2: Relying on General Cleaning Products - For Everything

 

It’s important to read labels on cleaning products to ensure you’re not going to damage your leather sofa, or your carpet, or the countertops, etc! For example, steam cleaning is great for a variety of surfaces, but not hardwood flooring! Know the rules before you begin cleaning.

 

Mistake # 3: Setting the Wrong Expectations for Time Spent Cleaning

 

It could take time. A lot of time. And it’s important that you’re aware of this so that you you’re able to thoroughly clean, instead of having to rush toward the end of your allotted time.

 

Mistake # 4: Clogging Up the Vacuum Cleaner

 

Be sure to change the vacuum cleaner filter often, or else your vacuuming will be futile. There’s nothing worse than having to redo a cleaning job!

 

Mistake # 5: Not Taking Your Time

 

Lastly, take your time while cleaning. Catch every nook and cranny. You’ll be thankful in the long run- we promise!
