3 Frequently Asked Questions About Caring for Leather Furniture After Fire Damage

So perhaps you’ve just bought a brand new set of living room furniture- all leather upholstered. If you’re wondering how to properly care for it, you’ve come to the right place! Below, The Steam Team has three frequently asked questions about leather furniture and how it’s cared for, and we hope you find the answers helpful!

 

How Can Leather Be Cleaned?

 

When it comes to cleaning, leather upholstery typically needs to be dusted and vacuumed on a weekly basis. You can wipe it down with a dry microfiber cloth, or a damp cloth if the dust is thicker. Remember to never, ever use a soaking wet cloth on your leather upholstery. Use your vacuum’s cleaning attachment to vacuum corners, nooks, and crannies in leather furniture. It’ll do wonders!

 

How Often Should Leather Be Conditioned?

 

Next, comes conditioning. Leather conditioning is just as important as leather cleaning! Leather furniture should be conditioned once to twice a year, depending on the amount of wear and tear it endures on a daily basis, and quickly it’s drying out.

 

What Causes Leather to Dry Out?

 

Leather is similar to our skin, which needs to stay moisturized in order to remain healthy and in good condition. What causes leather to dry out? Well, if your sofa or chair is near an air vent, or a sunny window, it could dry out and fade quicker than if it were placed away from the vent/window (or if the window were covered).


The Steam Team has over a decade of experience with cleaning, conditioning, and caring for leather furniture! Especially after fire damage and water damage. If your furniture is in need of a little bit of tender loving care, don’t be afraid to contact The Steam Team. We can clean and restore your leather to its original condition, and you’ll love the results!

The First Steps in Fire Damage Restoration

A house fire can start from a variety of sources and can spread quite rapidly. It’s completely devastating when you suffer from a house fire, no matter the cause. It’s both difficult and dangerous to handle the fire or the fire damage by yourself, but, many homeowners try to take the task upon themselves. In our blog today, we’re covering the best way to help as a homeowner who has suffered from fire damage recently because we want you to be as equipped as you can.

 

Act Immediately

As soon as the fire starts, there are a few phone calls you should make. First and foremost, 911 -- the firefighters should be the ones to deal with extinguishing the house fire. Next, your insurance company -- they’ll help you through the next steps to make sure you’re taken care of. Finally, a professional cleaning and restoration company -- like us, here at The Steam Team, who can help you along the way through the restoration process until your home looks as if it was never damaged.

 

After the Fire; Survey the Damage

After the firefighters have successfully extinguished the fire and you’ve made the necessary phone calls, you may be tempted to begin surveying the damage. The smoke that still remains in the air and the soot settling on the surfaces around your home pose a huge risk to your health -- especially without any protective gear. That’s why it’s so important to call in the professional restoration team. When our fire damage restoration technicians arrive at your home, they will first begin surveying the damage. Afterward, we’ll begin the restoration process by making sure your home is protected from further damage.


The Steam Team understands how devastating a house fire can be to you and your family. We strive to restore your home to its previous condition using our many years of experience, and expert restoration techniques. Let us handle this burden for you, and call The Steam Team today!

Steam Team: What to Know About Carpet Cleaning

When it comes to the cons of installing carpet in your home, the inevitable stains, spills, rips, and shedding are just the tip of the iceberg. What’s worse, you ask? A carpet’s shrinkage.

 

We know- before you read this blog, you had no idea that carpet could shrink, and you’re immediately frustrated that your once perfect living room floor could someday be very much so imperfect. Fortunately, we’re here to take the edge off. We’ll explain why carpet shrinkage occurs, and how you can avoid this potential-problem altogether!

 

Causes of Carpet Shrinkage

 

Carpet shrinkage has everything to do with the carpet’s moisture content. For instance, a change in ambient humidity levels, or the carpet being overly-wet during a cleaning could cause shrinkage or expansion. Naturally, outdoor carpet is even more prone to shrinking if not installed correctly.

 

Don’t worry- if your carpet was properly installed, it shouldn’t shrink or expand, but it’s still wise to know the signs. Are the seams in your carpet splitting? Is your carpet pulling itself away from the room’s perimeter?

 

Professional Care vs DIY

 

The DIY debate will always be around. It’s easy to consider cleaning your carpets yourself, with a multitude of online resources at your fingertips. But as a leading professional steam cleaning company in Austin, TX- we always encourage our customers to have their carpets professionally treated at least once a year (depending on the amount of traffic your flooring endures).


And of course, if you suspect your carpet is shrinking or you’d like to ensure your new carpet is installed properly, don’t hesitate to contact the pro’s. The Steam Team has the knowledge, experience, and equipment to make sure your project begins and ends smoothly. Give us a call today!
