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.

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!

Choosing the Best Rug Cleaning Method Austin Texas

When you set out to clean your rugs, you have a decision to make. Which method of cleaning should you choose? Shampooing, steam cleaning, dry cleaning? Another method? There are several options when it comes to rug cleaning, and below we’ll review each one- so you can easily make a decision when you’re cleaning your flooring! We hope this helps for all your rug cleaning needs in Austin, Texas! 

 

Shampooing

 

Shampooing involves scrubbing your carpet in a circular motion, using liquid detergent. The foam that’s produced from the detergent absorbs dirt and debris and is vacuumed away after drying! Shampooing also helps with carpet odors, and you can buy or rent a machine to do the heavy work for you.

 

Foam Cleaning

 

While this isn’t the best method for removing stains, it works well for removing dirt from your carpet. A machine is used to stir foam into the carpet fibers. This foam picks up dirt, dust, dander, and other debris, leaving your carpet clean and fresh again. Only a small amount of water is used.

 

Dry Carpet Cleaning

 

In this process, a machine uses rotating absorbent pads to extract oils and debris from areas in the carpet that are stained. So if you’ve got a nasty one hiding underneath the couch, you might want to break out the dry carpet cleaning machine!

 

Steam Cleaning

 

When it comes to your carpet, The Steam Team strongly recommends choosing to steam clean. A professional-grade steam cleaner easily extracts debris from deep within your carpet fibers,  using nothing but hot water and intense pressure. Steam cleaning is 100% safe for the environment, your pets, and your family. And it leaves no residue behind, and very little moisture. Your carpet will dry remarkably quickly, and we’ll never leave you with wet flooring! We hope you choose this method- we know you won’t regret it!
