About our family operated local business
Steam Sweepers LLC was established in 1996 by Art Thomas. Over the last 22 years Oriental Rugs have been our passion. Additionally, we offer carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, as well as grout and tile cleaning services. Steam Sweepers LLC invested the capital needed to open the most advanced Oriental and Specialty Area Rug Cleaning Facility north of Seattle. Our area rug cleaning plant houses the latest technology for restoring oriental and specialty rugs. The new location also provides space for the field service vans used by our carpet cleaning technicians. This is how we serve all our Bellingham and Whatcom County customers, residential or commercial. Our business is located at 3620 Irongate Road in Bellingham, Washington. Whether you own a fine area rug, need a professional carpet cleaner, or your shower tile and grout require cleaning, call Steam Sweepers LLC.
From the beginning and still to this day, Art is involved with each customer, whether it is providing an estimate of services, quality control, or a follow-up. The whole Thomas family participates in the operations of Steam Sweepers LLC. Karen, Art’s wife, has been an Occupational Therapist for 31 years. She provides Human Resource assistance for Steam Sweepers. His son Bryan, a graduate from Western Washington University, still works for us as needed. Their daughter Brea is also a graduate of Western Washing University. Brea works part-time in the office providing clerical, administrative, and customer service support. Art trains and provides education through IICRC for all employees.
