Are You Suffering From Flood Damage?

With the heavy, heavy rains our city has experienced over the last few months and the devastating weather that surrounding areas have experienced, it’s extremely important that homeowners know what they should and should not do after a flood.

 

Do: Contact Your Insurance Company

 

First things first: contact your insurance company to figure out exactly what they cover. Remember to be straightforward about the incident so that there isn’t any confusion down the line. Then, call us! The Steam Team will immediately come out and help you through the cleanup and water extraction process.

 

Don’t: Try to Clean Up Immediately

 

We know how tempting it can be to get back in your home and try to clean up the entire mess, but it can be dangerous and even detrimental to your health. Before you start to dive in and clean up, talk to your insurance company and a professional restoration company first.

 

Do: Keep An Eye Out for Mold Spores

 

To protect  yourself against mold spores, be sure to purchase masks from your local pharmacy or department store. Wear them as you begin the process of cleaning up. If you spot any items that have already been affected by mold spores, take them outside immediately. This is where you’ll need to clean them, to prevent the mold from spreading indoors.

 

Don’t: Feel Overwhelmed

 

It takes time. Extracting the water alone is time consuming and a very careful process. If too much water is pumped out too quickly, you risk causing your walls to collapse from the pressure. To keep this from happening, only two to three feet of water are pumped out at a time. So remember to be patient, and let the professionals do what they do best.

 

We’re always here to help, no matter the time of day. Give us a call if you’re in need of water damage restoration, or even just a routine steam cleaning for your furniture!

 

5 Secrets to Cleaning Around the Home

Carpet Cleaning In Round Rock, Texas

Carpet Cleaning In Round Rock, Texas

It’s cleaning day! Time to break out the supplies: a vacuum cleaner, your trusty cleaning solution, and these five tips on eliminating grim around the house:

 

For Dust, Dirt, & Dander

 

There’s simply no way to avoid it. When it comes to keeping our floors clean (or at least, presentable) we must establish a regular vacuuming routine! Of course, how frequently you need to vacuum will depend on the level of foot traffic in your home. On average, you should be vacuuming at least once a week- it’ll make the chore much easier in the long run!

 

We suggest vacuuming for its convenience: it’s easier on the body, will save time and energy, etc. If you do not own a vacuum cleaner suitable for tile and hardwood, a broom or floor duster will suffice.

 

For that Stubborn Soap Scum

 

Removing soap scum requires an intense amount of pressure- a pressure easily achieved by a steam cleaner. If the soap scum in your bathroom has hardened, we recommend saving yourself time and frustration by either renting a steam cleaning machine, or giving a professional a call!

 

For Spills & Stains

 

Keeping spills and stains off upholstered furniture is no easy task!

 

It’s all about quick reflexes! Not really- just be sure to tend to spills and accidents as quickly as you can. This will help prevent permanent staining.

 

For Gruesome, Grimy Grout

 

Grout: the sole reason you procrastinate cleaning the bathroom. Grout is porous in nature, and absorbs grime very quickly. Cleaning grout is a tiring process, and oftentimes we struggle to achieve the results we desire. If your regular mopping and scrubbing isn’t cutting it consider hiring a professional.

For everything else… Call in The Steam Team! If we haven’t said it already- steam cleaning is one of the most efficient, most effective methods of cleaning. Whether we’re deep-cleaning your kitchen after the holidays, or replacing that grimy grout, you’ll be amazed at The Steam Team’s results!
