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! 


Protecting Carpet 101

Carpet is one of the most widely used types of flooring, but it’s also one of the most easily ruined. This is often due to the lack of maintenance over the years because many homeowners don’t realize how tiny dirt particles get stuck deep into the carpet fibers and they end up causing damage when they’re moved around from foot traffic. That’s why we’re here to help educate you on the best way to care for your carpet!


Start With Carpet Padding

First thing’s first: make sure your carpet has the proper padding underneath. Carpet padding increases longevity in your carpet by absorbing the shock of human foot traffic. It protects your carpets binding and backing and makes your carpet much softer to walk upon.


Finish With Carpet Protectant

If you’re installing new carpet, just after it’s laid- don’t forget the protectant! It’ll add an extra layer of protection between your foot traffic and your carpet fibers before there’s any chance for damage.


If you’re dealing with older carpet, call in the professionals to take a look and see if you could benefit from carpet protectant. It helps to keep the tiny dirt and grime particles from causing any damage beneath the surface of your carpet.


Thorough Cleaning and Maintenance

Aside from regular, weekly (or bi-weekly, depending on how heavy your foot traffic is) cleanings, are the semi-annual thorough (read: professional) cleanings. We recommend steam cleaning because of how easily it extracts dirt and debris from carpet, leaving little moisture behind- and absolutely no residue. The Steam Team recommends steam cleaning once a year, but if your carpet endures extra foot traffic, or you have a few stains you’d like to finally clean up, twice a year could be sufficient.


If you’re ready for a professional carpet cleaning or need the professionals to take a look at your carpet, give us a call today. We’re always here to help!

3 Unique Ways to Keep Carpet Clean

It’s easy to spill a plate of food or topple a glass of wine! And when these spills and stains happen on your carpeting, well, it can be easy to get frustrated. But don’t fret; any stain you can’t remove can be handled by The Steam Team- your leading carpet cleaning and restoration company in Austin, TX! So let’s take a quick look at how we can further our efforts in keeping carpet clean and pristine!


Place Area Rugs Around Your Home


First, place area rugs where your carpet receives the most foot traffic. Placing area rugs around your home will help collect the dust and dirt that we track in on our feet. They also add a personal touch to any space! So you can decorate your living room and keep the carpet clean, all with area rugs.


Remove Shoes at the Door


Our next piece of advice is to simply remove your shoes at the entrance to your home! This way, the dirt doesn’t even have a chance to land on your carpeting. Since most of the dust and dirt that enters our home comes in with us on our shoes and feet, this will majorly cut down on how much dirties up your carpeting.


Wipe Your Pets’ Paws


Fido tracks in a lot of dirt, sand, and dust, as well! And unfortunately, mud isn’t out of the question. So let’s battle dirt and mud by wiping our pets’ paws as they come in from “doing their business!” It can help keep you, your carpet, and your furniture clean.


The Steam Team has plenty of experience when it comes to keeping your flooring clean and looking brand new! From carpeting, to hardwood, to marble and other natural stone, we’ve got you covered. Don’t hesitate to call us out and help take care of your flooring 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.

But until you give us a call, read below about how you can prevent stains on fabric and upholstery!

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).


Are you thinking about steam cleaning your home? Don’t hesitate to give us a call today!


Cleaning Bathroom Tile Through the Humidity

Tile is one of the best materials for areas such as the kitchen and bathrooms for multiple reasons. First, it makes for easy-to-clean messes and it can withstand high temperatures and humidity. However, depending on the amount of space between your tiles, you might need to pay a little extra attention to these areas. The grout between your tiles is far more porous than the tile and is unfortunately susceptible to stains from spills and other messes.


Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Start off with the most simple, basic, least acidic cleaning solution and work your way up, if you need to. You can try mixtures of vinegar and water, or a paste of baking soda. 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.


Always Look for Mold

Small areas with such high humidity make the perfect environments for mold growth. Whenever you’re cleaning your bathrooms, make sure to look in those hard-to-reach places for signs of mold (areas such as behind the toilet, under the sink, and around the bathtub or shower).


Steam Cleaning Tile & Grout

Steam cleaning is an extremely effective and efficient way to clean tile and 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! Consider either renting a steam cleaning machine, or hiring the professionals to come out and restore your bathroom to its original, pristine condition.


Our professionals are highly trained and use the latest equipment to tackle tile and grout cleaning. If you’ve encountered mold or think you may see the beginnings of mold growth, give us a call and we’ll come out to take a look and begin treatment if need be.


How To Prevent Stains from Your Tile & Grout

We all know that tile and grout can be difficult to keep clean, especially since grout is so porous! It easily absorbs spills and stains. But alas, there are several things we can do to help out, including relying on the professionals for some professional care. Below you’ll find three great tips for preventing stains on your tile and grout, and you’ll learn how The Steam Team can help, too.


Immediately Tend to Stains


This tip is essential! It’s imperative that you tend to spills immediately upon discovering them. The quicker you clean them up, the easier it will be to prevent a stain from forming on your beautiful tile and grout. So start here, and you’ll be well on your way to properly caring for your flooring!


Develop a Regular Cleaning Routine


It’s also important to develop a regular cleaning routine of sweeping, mopping, and occasionally steam cleaning. Steam cleaning is a great method of cleaning to use on grout! Using nothing but extremely hot water and high water pressure, a professional-grade steam cleaner can easily extract dirt and grime from deep within the pores of grout. It’ll shine up your tile, too! We always recommend steam cleaning when it comes to caring for your flooring.


Use Grout Sealant


Here’s our last tip! It’s always best to install grout sealant when it comes to preventing stains on tile and grout! It serves as a protective barrier between the pores of grout, and spills. It’s essential if you want to keep your tile and grout looking its best!


Don’t forget: The Steam Team is always here to help out! Whether it’s tile and grout, carpeting, or hardwood flooring, we can tackle it all. We can even clean your surfaces, draperies, and upholstery! We can come out and steam clean your home from top to bottom- but you have to first give us a call! So don’t hesitate.

The Easiest to Clean Tile and Grout

Ceramic tile and grout certainly makes for an attractive flooring solution that many people prefer to keep in their homes or place of business. But it may also be the most neglected and overlooked floor when it comes to proper cleaning. Let’s discuss the best way to clean tile and grout.


Put Down The Brush


Far too many people choose the wrong method for tile and grout cleaning, and make the job much harder on themselves than it needs to be. You might be one of them, scrubbing vigorously over the tile and in between every grout line with a small brush. You may be using harsh, unsafe chemicals that can cause you irritation. We at The Steam Team are here to tell you that you don’t have to deal with this irritating process anymore.


The Steam Team offers a professional tile and grout cleaning service that will use the latest technology to restore your ceramic flooring to it’s very best state. The embedded bacteria and germs in your floor don’t stand a chance.


The Process


The cleaning process will begin with an inspection to find the dirty areas of the flooring and develop the proper solution for each area. Then the areas will be prepared by removing all furniture and setting up the area as to not disturb any carpeted or hardwood flooring nearby.


When the floor is ready, all dry soil will be removed by thoroughly sweeping and vacuuming. Then a high quality advanced tile cleaner will be sprayed over the entire surface of the tile, before it is thoroughly cleaned with hand brushes, mechanical rotating brushes and a self-contained pressure cleaning system. A rinse solution will be pumped through this machine, cleaning and sanitizing the entire floor.


After the floor as been completely cleaned and rinsed, the proper sealing/finishing needed for the tile will be applied. Then, our technicians will do a final walkthrough inspection and go over the results of your newly cleaned ceramic tile and grout.

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.

And today, we’re going to share a few of these with you, too!

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!

3 Tips to Save You From Water Damage in Austin Texas

Water damage can occur at any time and, unfortunately, in many, many places. Whether it’s from a broken appliance, a natural disaster, or a busted pipe- it’s always important to deal with the damage immediately. Water damage happens in Austin, Texas everyday.

 

The Sooner, The Better

Water can cause some damage if left to stand still for extended periods of time. The water that enters a home during a flood or natural disaster may carry dangerous debris or harmful bacteria. It’s important to take precautions and use safety measures to protect yourself from anything harmful in the water.

 

Acting quickly also helps to prevent against mold. Mold only needs twenty four hours to grow and begin festering, so make sure you contact the professionals to get in there and clean everything out.

 

Hand it to the Pros

Speaking of the pros, we know you want to get back in your house, water damage is completely devastating- we completely understand. While it’s best to clean up the water sooner rather than later (for obvious reasons), it’s also best to let the professionals get in there and make sure it’s cleaned up correctly and thoroughly.

 

Use the Right Equipment

One of the most important things about restoration and cleaning is using the right equipment. When it comes to water damage, if the water is completely dried out, mold can start to grow. If you don’t have professional-grade fans, it’s definitely worth it to reach out to the professionals to make sure the job’s done right!

 

The Steam Team has been helping the Austin area with a multitude of cleaning and restoration projects for over a decade. Put your trust in us during a flood, or severe case of water damage and you can rest assured that we’ll be safe, effective, and will keep home and possessions safe the entire time.
