  • “I have never met anyone as industrious, careful, or totally honest as Mr. Kolton. I have antique carpets which he brought back to life. The quality of his cleaning and service was outstanding. He has my highest recommendation.”

  • “We just used Jim to get pen marks out of our brand new, yellow velvet sofa. We were terrified that he might make the situation worse. Instead you can’t tell there was anything there. He also got two filthy white rugs looking like new. All this for a very reasonable price.”

  • “We’re always amazed at the way that The Steam Team gets out the dirt tracked into our book store. It looks great when they are finished, and they always follow up to make sure that we are satisfied.”

If you’ve ever had a cleaner quote you “$6.95 a room”, then give you a bill for $300 an hour later – yet in a few weeks your carpet, rugs and upholstery look like they’ve never been cleaned –you’ll really like The Steam Team.

They are the people to call when you want competitively priced, environmentally-safe, and scrupulously thorough carpet, oriental rug, and upholstery cleaning. Recommended to us by a local interior designer, The Steam Team guarantees your satisfaction – or you get your money back.

“To each and every one of our customers we provide a thorough, caring service,” explain owners Jim McKeon and Ofer Kolton.

“People don’t realize how many shortcuts cleaners take to make carpets ‘look’ like they’re clean. We spend almost twice as much time with you as other cleaners do. Instead of heavy-duty chemicals, we use healthy, biodegradable products. We also offer cleaning for people with scent and chemical sensitivities, followed by a special clear water rinse to get your carpets and upholstery really clean.

“After our cleaning, your carpets will feel softer to the touch, and be nearly dry and residue-free. You’ll save money because you won’t need to clean your furnishings as often, and they’ll last longer. We meticulously hand-clean Oriental rugs and upholstery with the same thoroughness and attention to detail.”

Jim and Ofer are among the 5% of cleaners in the U.S. who are certified by the International Institute of Carpet and Upholstery. The Steam Team is bonded and insured.

“We’ve built our business on word of mouth and repeat customers, and we take great pride in our workmanship. To ensure you of our devotion to quality, we offer an unconditional guarantee: if you are not happy with our work, we will redo the job free of charge.”

“If you are still not happy, we will give you your money back. We want you to be absolutely delighted with our work.”
