We not only have people living here, we have pets. Lots of 'em. We also have carpets. It's safe to say pets and people do a number on carpeting. They track in mud and dirt and there's the occasional accident. The accident could be anything from a pet stain to someone dropping a cup of soda. Either way that stuff leaves a mark and a stink. Both are unacceptable.
I don't want to clean carpets. It's difficult at best. Heavy, bulky steam cleaners work, but I just don't think I have the experience to do a very good job with stain and odor removal. I'm never sure if I'm operating the machine properly or if I've used too much cleaner in the machine. That in itself can lead to more problems later on.
So, I'm calling in The Steam Team to do the job for me. Check them out here, http://www.thesteamteam.com/austin-cleaning-services/upholstery.shtml. They do everything. Rugs, upholstery, drapes, you name it and they'll clean it. I want to leave the dirty work to the professionals and leaving the mess makers outside might do the trick too. I'll just corral the dog and the cats in the kitchen from now on. I can mop up after them!
