The Ins and Outs of Cleaning

Leather upholstery isn’t just gorgeous, it’s also durable, long-lasting, and pretty easy to care for (if you ask us)! When properly cared for, leather can last a lifetime. It’s one of the toughest materials and is actually the most recommended furniture upholstery material if you have kids and pets because you won’t risk any of those permanent stains. However, the cleaning process is specific and requires a little more involved than most. The Steam Team is here for you and your leather conditioning and cleaning!


From the Beginning

With new furniture, it’s easy to want to jump right into enjoying your new couch or recliner, but before you begin relaxing let’s make sure a few things are taken care of. First and foremost, leather needs to be conditioned in order to keep its elasticity over time, so it’s important that it’s conditioned initially as well. From there on, every six to twelve months (depending on what type of climate you live in) your leather should be conditioned.


Next, before there are any paws or cute little hands all over your new furniture, make sure there’s a layer of protectant over the leather. While leather is one of the toughest materials used in upholstery, it’s always a good idea to have something for extra protection.


Last (but certainly not least), the best time to learn about commercial cleaning products and leather is before you need to use them- like now, when you’ve just moved your new furniture in. Avoid any commercial cleaners that aren’t specifically made for leather as they could cause significant damage to the material.


The Steam Team can effectively and efficiently remove dirt, grease, and debris from your leather furniture, and then condition it to restore it to its like-new condition. And the best part? ‘We’ll clean it correctly the very first time. For more information on leather cleaning, conditioning, and other cleaning and restoration projects, visit our website today!

Furniture Stain Tips

Do you find it difficult to get the furniture that best fits your comfort and design needs? You are not alone, millions of people have difficulty locating the right chair or right sofa for their home, then caring for it is another project!  

Here are some general tips on furniture and how to care for it:

  • Look at Goodwill stores for used furniture. You may be surprised at the quality of furniture that you'll find at Goodwill. They typically don't accept furniture with any sort of tears or stains, so the overall quality is pretty good. And the prices are much less than what you'll see buying new.
  • Choose your fabric and colors based on your lifestyle. If you have children or pets, it is best to steer clear of delicate fabrics and light colors. These will be worn through and stained in no time. A darker, sturdier fabric will hold up to the abuse, and hides many stains.
  • Be cautious about wear warranties offered on many furniture pieces. Many are not worth the money. These discounts offer extra protection against spills and stains or rips and scratches. The problem with many of these warranties is that, when you consider the price you're paying, you could purchase a new piece of furniture for the same amount as the warranty or have the piece cleaned yourself for less.
  • Avoid high maintenance furniture unless you have the time to take good care of it. If you do not want to constantly clean your furniture, look for pieces with a quality finish. Do not hesitate to purchase some fabric protection so you do not have to worry about stains on your sofa.

With care and consideration, your home will soon be furnished with lovely furniture. If you need help cleaning furniture in your Austin home or business, that's what we do! Contact us today.
