Does your carpet need replace with tile in Austin Texas?

Unfortunately, our beautiful, plush carpet doesn’t last forever! Carpet can last about 10-15 years, depending on its condition. Eventually cleaning doesn’t do it justice, and carpet needs replacing. We’re here to tell you when that might be! What should you look out for? And what should you keep in mind?

 

Lost Texture

 

Is your carpet becoming matted down? Of course, some loss in texture is normal, with pets, children, and regular wear and tear. But over time, the carpet may not look or feel as plush and comfy as it once was.

 

Tears and Rips

 

Carpet that’s tearing is a good sign that it needs to be replaced. Some tears can be repaired, but some are, well, beyond repair. Tears often start appearing in corners, or in the middle of the door between two rooms. Catch them before they get too bad!̧

 

Loss of Color

 

Another reason to replace your old carpet is color loss. It's just not aesthetically pleasing! You can prevent color loss by preventing spills and stains, and also by keeping your carpet out of direct sunlight; sunlight easily causes carpet to fade and discolor.

 

Persistent Odors

 

Sorry pet owners, but pet urine is often the cause of carpet replacing. It seeps through the carpet, into the padding, and even into the walls if not treated in a timely manner. Steam cleaning is the best option for removing pet odors, but if it’s not doing the job, it may be time for a replacement.

 

Persistent Stains

 

And lastly, if you have persistent, unsightly stains, replacing your carpet may be the best option! But first, try steam cleaning; The Steam Team is well known for ridding carpet of persistent stains, preventing you from having to replace everything.

Glistening Grout: 3 Ways to Keep it Clean

Tile And Marble Cleaning 

Tile And Marble Cleaning 

Tile looks great and glistening when first installed, and really adds a nice, light touch to our kitchens and bathrooms. But it can be quite difficult to keep it looking that way, especially with heavy foot traffic, pets, children, or all of the above! Luckily, with the help of The Steam Team, we can restore your tile to its original condition; never hesitate to give us a call! But until then, follow these three simple tips for keeping your grout in optimal condition:

 

Mopping on the Regular

 

Mopping your flooring on a regular basis will help keep it clean! For best results, use a mop with a microfiber cloth attached to it, and don’t forget to sweep beforehand! Sweeping will help tremendously- especially when it comes time for cleaning day.

 

Using the Scrub Brush

 

Sometimes it just takes a little bit of elbow grease, and a lot of determination! This method may be a bit more difficult, but scrubbing tile and grout is another way of keeping it clean. You can use a concoction of baking soda and vinegar, or you can use your favorite go-to commercial cleaner- as long as it's specified for grout, you’re good to go! Scrub away!

 

Tile Cleaning

 

Here at The Steam Team, we believe that steam cleaning is the best way to clean tile and grout! A professional grade steam cleaner reaches deep within the pores of grout to extract dirt, grime, and other nasty substances that have been absorbed over time. Not to mention, it restores the shine in your tile- effortlessly.

 

Is your tile and marble are in need of a thorough deep cleaning? If so, don’t wait- call The Steam Team! We can restore your tile and grout to its original, glistening condition- and we’ll be out in no time!

This is the hard part: use a stiff cleaning brush to scrub the grout, putting in your best effort! Don’t forget to rinse the grout with water, and thoroughly dry the area to prevent mold growth.

 

Steam Cleaning Tile & Grout

 

Steam cleaning is a much easier way of cleaning grime and debris off of grout! Using only pressurized water and intensely hot steam, a steam cleaner easily extracts grime from the pores of grout- and you don’t have to put in nearly as much effort!

Ah, tile and its corresponding grout… despite the color of your grout, inevitably it will change shades- and not for the better! It’s difficult to keep grout clean, and even more challenging to keep it in its new, pristine condition. Fortunately for you, though, The Steam Team can help out. If we’re not coming out to your house, you can still read further for some handy tips on keeping tile and grout as clean as possible!

 

Tile and Grout Cleaning

 

Restoring tile and grout is no easy feat. It can be taxing on the body if you utilize the scrubbing method (scrubbing on your hands and knees with an old toothbrush- we’ve all done it, and we’ve all despised it). You’ll want to choose a method and product that is safe for your family and home, and one that is relatively easy- especially on your body!

 

Non-Steam Cleaning Method

 

Try using powdered oxygen bleach! It’s non-toxic and therefore safe for your family, pets, and even fabrics. This method works brilliantly to remove stains, even stains as tough as red wine. Mix powdered oxygen bleach with your mop water, and go to town! Using a mop is much preferable than using that old toothbrush, so we’re confident that this method will be helpful in more ways than one.
