Hardwood floors look beautiful in our homes, especially during sunrise and sunset, when the light shines in and reflects off of a smooth, clean surface. If you have had fire or water damage and need your hardwood floors refinished call The Steam Team today for a free estimate in Austin, Texas.


Installing hardwood flooring is a great decision, and it can last for just about, well, forever… as long as it’s maintained properly. When it is, it becomes the easiest surface in the house to clean- and the most aesthetically appealing. But what if it’s time to refinish or even replace your hardwood flooring? Do you know the signs?


Know the Signs


Are there any scratches, etches, or loose floor boards in your flooring? If the boards are warped, split, or sagging, it could be time for a refinishing or a replacement. It’s best to let the professionals decide before you do anything that isn’t necessary.


Choose Your Method- Pro’s, or DIY?


If you choose the DIY method, you really need to know what you’re doing, or else you risk further damaging your floor. We encourage our customers to call us, and let The Steam Team work their magic! It may be a tad more expensive, but if you end up making a mistake, that mistake could cost you far more in the long run.


So make the right choice, and  call in The Steam Team! We’re a team of trained professionals who have been working on several types of restoration projects for many years. We know what we’re doing, and we’ll make sure we treat your flooring as it were our own.


Calling in the Professionals


First, The Steam Team will do what’s called a “Visual Inspection.” This will help us determine what level of restoration is required to get your flooring looking brand new again. Then we’ll begin repairing the damage… filling in the cracks, all of those good things. Lastly, we’ll clean your flooring, and install a brand new refinish. You’ll be impressed with our results- we guarantee it! Call 512-451-8326 or visit any of our 3 locations at 222 West Ave., 9901 Burnet Road or 1904 West Koenig Lane in Austin, Texas.

No matter how prepared we are, we simply can’t predict the wrath of a disastrous house fire. Fire spreads relentlessly, damaging our possessions, and sometimes- our entire homes. Regardless of the degree of damage, house fires are devastating and the aftermath is daunting.


In best-case scenarios our homes get away with minimal fire damage. But even if these cases, most of us are unprepared for cleaning up the smoke, ash, and soot that blankets our belongings! It’s best to begin the cleanup process with the help of a professional cleaning and restoration company- like The Steam Team.


In the meantime, we’ll provide a few handy tips for handling the aftermath of fire damage in your home.


Launder All Washable Items


Anything that can withstand a machine wash should be put into the washer as soon as possible! Afterward, gather the remaining affected items to be dropped off at your local dry cleaner.


Be sure to check on the washer in between the next two steps…


Wash Walls & Surfaces


Left behind ash and soot will perpetuate odors inside your home. Use a rented steam cleaner (or a professional restoration company) to wash interior walls and surfaces. This method is perfectly safe for everyone involved: the environment, your children, and pets. A steam cleaner will use nothing but high water pressure and intense heat to remove soot and ash without leaving behind any residue.


Steam Clean Upholstery, Drapes, & More


Curtains and drapes can be sprayed down with deodorizing products (just be careful not to use sprays which only mask the odor), or otherwise steam cleaned. Steam cleaning is also safe for upholstered furniture, countertops, flooring, tables and chairs, and so many more items.

Once again- in the event of a fire in your home, don’t wait; call The Steam Team! You’d be surprised by a steam cleaner’s effective and efficient results!
