Thank you to everybody that stopped by our booth at the San Antonio Home & Garden Show! This year’s show was filled with lots of people eager to get their spring cleaning and projects underway. We enjoyed visiting with those of you who took the time to stop by our booth and we look forward to possibly serving you in the future with any of your carpet cleaning needs!
A call that we frequently get is what to do about excessive dust. Usually, a client tells us that they are having to dust their furniture several times a week to keep the dust under control and they are wanting some information about air duct cleaning. Steamer’s Carpet Care provides air duct cleaning, but what we like to ask our clients is when was the last time that they cleaned their carpet? If the answer is “not in a long time”, we usually recommend that they start with getting their carpets cleaned, and if they are still having a dust problem, then we can look into cleaning the air ducts.
It only makes sense that carpet could be the primary culprit behind excessive dust in the home. For starters, our shoes bring a lot of dust in the house each day. Also, each time that we step on carpet that hasn’t been kept clean, small dust clouds rise into the air and then settle back down on different places such as the furniture. Carpet cleaning is usually cheaper than air duct cleaning, plus you have the joy of seeing clean carpet after the job is done . . . air duct cleaning not so much.
So if you are seeing a lot of dust, follow this advice. Start by making sure that your carpet is vacuumed frequently and then make sure that you have a professional carpet cleaning at least once a year. If you are still experiencing a lot of dust in your home, then look into getting your air ducts cleaned by an honest and legitimate air duct cleaner.

We get a number of calls from customers complaining about mildew in their shower, and wonder if Steamer’s Carpet Care can come clean the shower grout lines to remove the mildew. Of course Steamer’s Carpet Care has tile & grout cleaning as a service, but our customers are thrilled to hear that we have a simpler and less expensive process that will remove mildew from the shower.
A product that we’ve been recommending for years on ceramic tiled showers is Tylex Mold & Mildew Remover. You can buy it at your local grocery store and it is excellent at removing mildew. Follow the instructions and your shower will look incredible in a short amount of time!

People always tell me that Steamer’s Carpet Care should show more before and after pictures of our carpet cleaning. Although we have plenty of those types of carpet cleaning pictures, for some reason, we have not posted many of them on our website.
Here is a picture from a recent cleaning that we did on a home that was not really that dirty, but you can still see what a difference there is between the clean and non-cleaned areas.
If you like what you see and are ready for clean carpet, then hire a professional carpet cleaner to insure that your carpets will get as clean as possible.

With tonight’s freezing weather, don’t forget to take care of the three P’s … pets, plants, and pipes. Of course, with Steamer’s Carpet Care, we are mainly offering advice as to how to prevent a water damage from occurring inside your home. Make sure the outdoor pipes are wrapped good, and if you are like me, you will most likely drip these pipes as an extra precaution. Also, if your HVAC system does not cover all of the rooms of your home, make sure any rooms that do not get any heat also have some type of protection if there are water pipes close.
If you do have a pipe that bursts and you have water damage occurring in your home, call Steamer’s Carpet Care at (210) 654-7700 or (830) 606-8400, and we will immediately dispatch a qualified technician to perform a water extraction and get your home dried out as quickly as possible.
One more look back into 2013!! Our employee of the month for December went to the entire Steamer’s Carpet Care team! Like a lot of companies, we feel very much like a family. And with Steamer’s Carpet Care, so many of us have been working together for so many years that we all seem to know our roles well. We all care a lot about doing what is right for our customers and I truly believe that that is why we have stayed together for so long . . . a common purpose. And like a lot of families, we always have to keep working at our game, but throughout it all, we get the job done. I know it sounds cliche, but I can truly say with sincerity that our people are really our best assets. Great job everybody!
With winter in full swing, many people are having to bring their pets indoors during frigid nights. In our San Antonio metro area, our pets are not used to freezing temperatures and thus come inside to spend the night. With some pets not used to being indoors a lot, many find it hard to hold their “potty break” until the next morning. Of course, not only is it frustrating for the pet but also for the homeowner. Urine stains and smells on carpet and upholstery are something we all can do without.
Pet urine can cause permanent damage to your floors and fabrics. If left for days or weeks, depending on the fabric or floor type, it will permanently change the dye structure, thus causing permanent staining. Even if the soluble deposits are removed, the damage to the dye structure may already be done. This means that nobody can guarantee complete removal of all urine spots. Also, it should be noted that cleaning existing urine spots will not remove any associated odor. In fact, cleaning could increase the odor in the air space for a temporary period of time.
To prevent permanent staining in the future, clean urine spots immediately by blotting with a white terry cloth or plain white paper towel until no moisture is transferred. If the spot is over a couple of days old, mix 1 part white vinegar to 2 parts water and massage (don’t rub) into the spot with a white terry cloth. Once you have “flushed” as much of the urine out as possible, blot with dry cloths until dry to the touch. If you have a small extraction machine, flush with fresh water until spot is removed. If you do not use this formula, most importantly, do not use over the counter carpet spot treatments or detergents, as these do not help with urine problems and many leave heavy residues in carpet, and may permanently set the stain.
If you have pet urine issues with your carpet or upholstery, and are in need of a professional carpet cleaning or upholstery cleaning, please feel to call Steamer’s Carpet Care at (210) 654-7700 or (830) 606-8400. We can send out experienced, well mannered technicians that will clean your carpet and upholstery, and provide information and solutions to the odor issues. Steamer’s Carpet Care provides carpet cleaning in San Antonio, New Braunfels, Boerne, Bulverde, Canyon Lake, and Seguin.
To me, January 10 feels more like the New Year than January 1. With the weather this week in San Antonio, from record freezing temperatures to warm rainy weather, I am so happy to be moving to what we are used to in San Antonio … warm sunshine! Now I feel like we are really starting a brand new year rather than just braving one.
So that brings me to the reason for my New Year blog post, which is about starting off the new year with a beautiful house. We like to say that after you’ve cleaned your carpet, tile, upholstery, and air ducts, your spring cleaning is 90% done! What a difference you will see, smell, and feel!
So start off the New Year with a clean house! Call Steamer’s Carpet Care at (210) 654-7700 or (830) 606-8400 to schedule your appointment. Happy New Year!
