Just a quick note to brag about what a great company this is. We have a few nice hand-knotted Oriental carpets and one of the cats nearly ruined one. We remembered Steam Sweepers from five years back. They had done a wonderful job and left our beautiful carpets like new. What is especially appealing about this service is that no chemicals are used. The company picks up and delivers the carpets. The service is amazingly economical as well, If you have need for renewal of your fine Oriental rugs, you cannot go wrong with this excellent company. As far as I know, there is nothing like this service in Bellingham, so we are lucky they are here!!

I called Art to advise me about two large oriental rugs that were my grandmother's. They are probably 60 years old, and have some wear, but have a great deal of meaning for me. I'm sure its been at least 10 years since they were cleaned. He brought them back this morning, and they look fantastic! The colors are vibrant and bright and the pile is soft to the touch. What I thought was age and wear was in fact dirt and dust in addition to wear. I can recommend Art for any rug, even old and fragile ones.... he handles them with care.

After treading (and eeeek, spilling) on one of Bellingham artist Dale Gottlieb's limited edition Tibetan art rugs for many years, I decided it was high time to get it cleaned. As it is one of my most precious possessions, I was a bit nervous about letting it out of my sight. Visions of the clean lines and vibrant colors blurring and bleeding willy nilly into each other danced through my head. I had heard the horror stories. But i needn't have worried. First off, I thought I was going to have to try to stuff it into my car and drive it somewhere to be cleaned with one of those pink warning flags trailing off the back of my car, worrying all the while that I didn't secure it properly. But no..... Bellingham Steam Sweepers showed up at my door to retrieve my rug and I immediately knew I was in good hands. Not only were they friendly (and funny) but they obviously knew their stuff. They did a beautiful and careful job cleaning it and delivered it back to me a week later (I even got help moving the couch and rolling it out in the living room). And so, I would highly recommend Steam Sweepers for your precious oriental rugs!

I had a Chinese wool rug that was stained in a flood and I took it to Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning. I had never heard of them before. They were able to get a lot of the stain out. I was very impressed, and asked Art about handling silk rugs.
I have a Chinese silk rug that needed to be lovingly handled, and so I took it to Steam Sweepers. They did an absolutely exquisite job. He did everything he could do to the rug that wouldn't risk threatening the fibers.
I was really pleased with what he could do for the rugs, and that he acknowledged the limits of what could be done as well. He also told me where to go if I did want to get a harsher, and potentially hazardous treatment.
He really did a marvelous job on the silk rug, and I have recommended everyone I know with a rug to Steam Sweepers. The price was wonderful, and it was incredible value for the goods received. The service was also fast, and I was incredibly pleased with the work Art did.

Since 2006 Roger Jobs Motors has been using Art Thomas and his crew from Steam Sweepers. We are amazed with his expertise and the crews ability to keep our office and showroom carpets in impeccable condition. They have put a maintenace program together that keeps the carpets clean. Art and his staff know how to get the job done correctly the first time. We continue to be impressed with the how well our carpets hold up to the rigorous use by clients and employees. Thanks for a job "always" done well.

I had inherited a beautiful old, hand-woven Persian rug from my mother that used to be in my grandparents home. It's huge, nine feet by eleven feet, and I wanted to have it cleaned. I had heard about Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning so I gave them a call. I think it is very important that they arrived on time to pick up and drop off my carpets. I had two smaller rugs cleaned as well. The final results were excellent! I would like to mention that he helped me move my furniture to get the carpets up and then again to put them down, I really appreciated that! I am so happy and satisfied and will definitely use them again in the future. I highly recommend them to anybody.

My wife found out about Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning LLC and they were the only rug cleaning company in Bellingham Washington. Our rugs needed to be cleaned and we called them. We didn't really know if we were referred to them but they were the only show in town. We called Steam Sweepers and they did everything they promised in the timeline and price they promised. My three rugs came back in better shape than when they left and there were no surprises. Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning LLC also cleaned our carpets in our house. The guy who cleaned our house worked really hard and did a fantastic job!

We were very pleased what Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning did. They cleaned the yacht club in Bellingham and we've actually used them in our home before, as well as in another house. They always do a good job.

Joe Coons

I'd be happy to recommend Steam Sweepers. They cleaned two area rugs for me, and they were wonderful in doing it. They did a beautiful job cleaning the rugs! They also made wonderful recommendations for maintaining, for upkeep, and for care.

I would highly recommend Steam Sweepers for cleaning your carpet. I picked up my oriental carpet confident that it had been thoroughly cleaned as the process they use completely washes away all dirt. The rug is submerged in water and a roller is used to dislodge the dirt. My rug was terribly soiled and came back deep cleaned, colors brighter, and smelling fresh! Customer service was great!

We've been with Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning since 2007. We had used them before, and this time we had them do two different jobs. They cleaned some wall-to-wall carpeting on the second floor of our house one day, and we had them pick up an area rug to have it cleaned and retured for the other job. They have done excellent work on both. In particular, the employee who did the wall-to-wall carpeting was very thorough. It was late afternoon but he worked as long as he needed to, and did a very thorough job. he was very courteous and apologetic that he was there around dinnertime (which we didn't mind).
Originally we had seen an ad by Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning and it had a coupon. The last jobs were a little more expensive than I thought they were going to be. Maybe get the pricing ahead of time. Ask if there are any coupons out there or any sales that are about to start.
Overall, Steam Sweepers was very complete, thorough, and courteous. They provided excellent service and were dependable. I would definitley recommend Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning!

Steam Sweepers was very knowledgeable about the rugs, and I definitely appreciated that. They got them clean and done in a timely fashion. They were very easy to work with.

We have used another carpet cleaner for over 20 years. This time we decided to try Steam Sweepers and are delighted with their work. Adam was professional, thorough, considerate and his customer service was superb! We will definitley use Steam Sweepers in the future. You will be thrilled with the results. Our carpet looks brand new. The work was done in a timely manner. We are thoroughly satisfied with the results.

You have done a fantastic job with a very dirty African Kilim runner. I was amazed at how nice it came out in spite of the stains, which can't be removed. Thank you for doing such an outstanding job.

In every community, there are go to guys. Or gals. Whether you need a great lawyer, stylist, or a new family practice. But it can take a while to find them. Steam Sweeper is increasingly Whatcom County's go to professional carpet cleaning service. Reasonable rates, quick and courteous turnaround, well chosen team, and nearly magical > cleaning results. I discovered Art and his team a few years back when I was selling my townhouse. It had white Berber rugs in the bedrooms with sixteen years use. White may be a kindly term. Steam Sweeper cleaned them before the listing began, and after the home sold, as a welcome to the appreciated new buyer. Art's posse has since renewed an aging rust colored wall-to-wall shag (Austin Powers era?), a wonderful year old beige berber, and now, a very old gorgeous Pakistani silk and wool hand-woven runner. He even taught me how to reknot the fringes. Whether a modest old carpet, or a treasured show-stopper old (antique) rug, you'll get great results with Steam Sweeper. Say hi to Art for me so he knows his website works.

I was very happy with Steam Sweepers' fast turnaround. They were able to come out quickly and do it. I was definitely happy with the results, and happy with the cost.

I've used Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning LLC five or six times before and they've always been very good. Everytime they've out done themselves. We're moving into a rental that was absolutley disgusting and filthy, but now the carpet and tile look absolutely phenomenal! I've been using Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning LLC for eight years and have been referred by a friend.

Call Steam Sweepers for a spotless carpet cleaning!
Steam Sweepers does a wonderful job cleaning my carpets and rug. The first time we used them, they came and cleaned the entire house, wall to wall carpeting. Our carpets had never looked better! Recently they cleaned an 8 x 10 area rug and two smaller rugs and did a nice job, but it was a bit pricey. Overall I'm very happy with their customer service and professionalism. They do a great job of cleaning rugs and carpets and I highly recommend them.

Bellingham, WA

Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning did a good job. Everything was fine. They came in at the time they said, and did what they said they'd do. They came back when they said they would and my carpets look beautiful. I'm a happy camper!

In the past, I have used multiple carpet cleaning services. But since I have done business with Steam Sweepers I know I'll continue to use them in the future. They are a very honest, reliable, and personable business. Adam did a tremendous job. He was able to explain his work process thoroughly and let me know exactly what kind of results I could expect. He was able to get all of the spots out, and my carpets now look amazing! The outcome was just what he said it would be. My carpets have never looked better, and I couldn't be more satisfied. I also had an area rug cleaned which looks better than I ever thought it could! They also picked it up and dropped it off to me for no extra cost which was fantastic. I recommend Steam Sweepers to anyone and everyone who has carpets, tile, or area rugs that need a good cleaning! They will not leave you dissapointed.

Was totaly honest and upfront about cost and was very reasonable. They did a great job and i would go back to them every time I am in need of quality, reasonable and fast service.

I'm a property manager. I got stuck last minute when another private company was not able to do the work. I was referred to Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning LLC by another coverage service I had used in the past. Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning LLC was very accommodating and was able to get the work done in a short amount of time. The billing process was easy without me being there. I would definitely use them again! This was my first time using them. They're very accommodating and were able to rearange their schedule to make the customer happy. I had a very good experience with Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning!

Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning was the best I've ever ever ever had!! They came in, did the job, were absolutely flawless, and cleaned my tile. It was amazing and it looks better than when it was new! They did an absolutely, completely beautiful job. I've been housekeeping for years and I've used several companies so I know that Steam Sweepers is absolutely the best I've ever used!

I was pleased with Steam Sweepers. I have commercial property that they do for me, and I was familiar with them. This time they came to my house and worked here. I thought it was expensive but very professional. They did my oriental carpets, and they came back perfect.

Bob Hall

I just moved to Standwood from Pennsylvania last Fall so I wanted my fine oriental hand woven wool rugs cleaned up for my new condo. I arranged with Art Thomas of Steam Sweepers to pick up my carpets when they were making other deliveries way South of Bellingham. They were able to submerge all the carpets for a thorough cleaning. All five rugs now look clean and bright. The rugs were returned in a timely fashion and under the original estimate because I miscalculated their size. I also appreciated Art's advice on how to maintain them between cleanings.

Virginia F.

Have used this service for 3 homes and 1 commercial property. Art and his crew are always prompt, professional, and highly knowlegeable. Were able to remove stains that other companies left behind!!

Angela T.

Art and the guys from Steam Sweepers have been helping us keep our carpets and rugs clean for the past few years. From the moment they came to my home for a free estimate I knew they were top notch professionals. They show up on time, get the job done right, and have great personalities too! I recommend them to anyone needing their services.

Sandra P.

We are very satisfied with the work done by Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning. They did a fine job on everything. The pick up and delivery were both done in a timely manor. They had the right price and the job was done well.

Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning did a superb job with steaming the slate floors in my house. I have a lot floor to steam! The technicians worked hard, were courteous, and everything was spotless when they were finished.

They also picked up my carpets to be cleaned. When they brought them back they were renewed and looked excellent. They did excellent work.

Geoff P.
Bellingham, WA

I have had my rugs cleaned before by a different method, and there’s almost no comparison as to which worked the best. My rug looks exactly like new, and I’ve had it for a long time. The other cleaning services really didn’t make a lot of improvements in appearance or cleanliness, whereas Steam Sweepers did! I can actually see the napping in the rug now. I have had five rugs cleaned by Steam Sweepers in total now, and I’m happy with them all. One is a room sized rug, one is a smaller, and the other three are small old rugs. They did a great job on all of them.

Carolynn S.

My family has been using Steam Sweepers for a long time. Somewhere in between, for some reason, we stopped using them. But, we shouldn't have because they are fantastic.
They always do a great job cleaning the carpets throughout my house. Recently, we also had them clean the carpet in an office. Just six months before, we had the carpet in the office cleaned by a different company, but Steam Sweepers actually ended up cleaning again after the other company because they were not very thorough. Steam Sweepers are very thorough. They get the job done right.

Carol P.
Blaine, WA

I had Steam Sweepers clean my oriental rugs. I talked to Art on the phone and I just knew he had the knowledge required to do the job correctly. I even had him wrap a rug that was moth proofed with their solution, to store it. He does a very nice job and will work with you and take the time to make sure that things are done properly.

Julie F.
Blaine, WA

What a great company! I previously contacted a company in the area I live that advertised picking up area rugs which made me very happy, but they weren't very interested in it. They wanted to clean my rug inside my home which I did not want as we have wonderful wood floors and I didn't want them to get harmed in any way.

When I found Steam Sweepers they were so helpful and friendly, and they would pick up and deliver too. They did an extermely great job of cleaning the rug, and returned it when promised. I would definately use them again and again, and highly recommend them.

Bonnie Dales

We've used Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning LLC for years. They are always reliable and show up on time. Art is a wizard at getting spots out of carpets, including some that were in the carpet when we bought the house we're in now. He keeps my carpets useful. They are fine and I recommend them highly.

Lynn T.

They're great! They cleaned my rugs and they look astonishing. I have used them twice now.

Toni D.

Art answered all of my questions over the phone. When I went in to drop off several of my rugs for cleaning, I looked around and their establishment is a clean place, so I felt comfortable leaving my rugs there. Art and his technicians are very professional. They did a great job for me. I would not hesitate to recommend them and will certainly use them again.

Judy D.

I like Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning a lot! Art Thomas, the owner, is really accommodating. He'll pick up your rugs and bring them back. I have Tibetan rugs that are fine Asian rugs and he understands how to deal with them more than anyone else in town.

I've been a customer for about three or four years. As soon as I found them online, I went to his place and saw the set-up. From the way he spoke I knew what he was talking about. They're very trustworthy, very polite and respectful of you. I do recommend them on my website too.

Dale Gottlieb

We had our wall to wall carpets cleaned and an oriental rug cleaned by them. We are very happy with the service at Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning. The man who came took his shoes off, put on booties, and took time on every corner. He was very detail oriented, our rugs were returned fresh and clean and the work was done well.

Dick Decima

Steam Sweepers just finished up with our 3 room carpet cleaning this morning 8/9/2013. We had some problems with pet odors and they were so professional. They came out to give us a bid and various options. They then did the odor removal on Tuesday, and came back Friday to clean the carpets. They were totally professional, but fun and delightful. They called first both days to let us know when they would arrive, and how long it would take. I Would recommend them to anyone.

Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning LLC gets a 5+ star rating for their quality of work! I have this unusual rug that I got in Hong Kong. It's kind of off-white in color. I had it cleaned before, and the people did a beautiful job. However, I guess that company was sold without my knowing, and when I had them come again I thought they had ruined it! I was just sick about it. I had to get it cleaned again and didn't know what to do. I looked at Steam Sweepers' website, and it looked like they did it the right way so I went with them. Art was very nice. He called me after he'd cleaned my rug to say he thought it had come out well, and that he had gotten it back to how it was before the botched job. He was right!! I'm so happy with it. He rescued my rug!

Kathy Caldwell
Anacortes, WA

An all-around excellent service!

Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning LLC cleaned two oriental rugs for us. They picked up our rugs and took them to the shop to be cleaned. In one case repaired they repaired a rug. Then they delivered them back to us.

Art was very helpful and knowledgeable. He was great to do business with. He has great integrity. Steam Sweepers provides you with very professional, reliable and well-priced service.

Jess Cook
Bellingham, WA

The first things Steam Sweepers Carpet Cleaning cleaned were three pieces of furniture. I was impressed that they came, picked them up, cleaned them, and brought them back. They took their shoes off when they came in, and they made the pieces look brand new.

We also had them clean all of our wool area rugs, one of them being quite old. All of them came back really clean. The bonus was that their facility is very close by. We were able to go down and see the process, which was very neat.

Hellen G.

In a moment of inattention my dog got ahold of a can of green enamel spray paint and after a vigorous shake, punctured the can, sending paint all over not one but two Persian rugs. Art and his folks were able to save what I thought were surely ruined Tabrizes. Thank you Steam Sweepers.
PS: for those worried about the dog, she didn't get any into her eye or mouth but her muzzle fur is sporting a SeaHawk color.

Art and his staff are nothing short of amazing. I am a new Washington resident and had my three rugs professionally cleaned and wrapped before leaving California. I wanted to be sure they would be well protected during the move and clean on arrival in our new home. As the movers began to unwrap them we were all struck by the horrible odor of MOLD! A LOT OF MOLD! It penetrated the 8 x 11 from one side to the other. (The result of being wrapped in paper and plastic while not yet thoroughly dry.) In some areas the mold was so awful it was at the hairy stage.

Research led me to Art. He came out and looked at the rugs, gave me an honest assessment of the problem and convinced me if there was one guy on the planet that could restore my rugs this was the guy. He returned them today restored beautifully and I defy anyone to look at or smell them and believe what they went through. Clean and sweet smelling in exactly a week! I myself find it hard to believe. BEFORE YOU GIVE UP ON DAMAGED RUGS CALL ART!

Nancy Sutton
Ferndale, WA

I bought my rug in Bubai and have animals so I was really happy to find a place in Bellingham that does the work, instead of just shiping it to Seattle.

This is my second time bringing my rug to them. The first time I thought the rug was ruined after the dog did something unmentionable and not the obvious two either. I got the rug back fast, clean. and clean smelling. Not chemical clean, sands of the desert clean, in a good way.

If you live in Whatcom county, bring it here.

Kevin Anderson

We've used Steam Sweepers for years. Art has gotten some pretty tough stains out of our carpet over the years. They do a great job, and are very easy to work with.

Lynn Torno

I've used Steam Sweepers for years. For everything from valuable old Persian carpets to cheap (but irreplaceable) small door mats to wall-to-wall carpeting. I've been extremely pleased & impressed every time. thanks so much for your high quality and dependability.

Steam Sweepers LLC was a pleasure to work with. When they said they would show up, they were there promptly. I would even say they over delivered on their customer service! The rugs came out looking beautiful and clean, and I highly recommend them.

Steam Sweepers does a great job every time. They show up on time and work quickly. Their rates are very reasonable and the carpets always look fantastic. I wouldn't hire anyone else!

Dependable, arrived on time, and did a great job.

I had a good experience with Steam Sweepers. The cleaning crew arrived on time, explained everything they were going to do, and did a thorough job. They even double-checked their work when they were finished. I would recommend their service

Steam Sweepers LLC has a great staff. I would definitely use them again. They were nice in picking up and dropping off my rug. I was very impressed with how the rugs were cleaned.

I have been a customer of Steam Sweepers close to 20 years for both my rental and personal home. They have always performed very professionally with excellent carpet cleaning results. I would highly recommend this company to all that read this review.

Charles Onion

Adam arrived at my home on schedule to complete a small, but difficult carpet cleaning. I had several ground-in stains which he assured me he could, and did successfully remove. He listened to my needs regarding focusing on the heavy traffic areas of my home and went right to work. My tired carpet looks renewed! I am extremely satisfied with Steam Sweepers and their man Adam!

Steve C.
Bellingham, WA

I would highly recommend Steam Sweepers! I have hand knotted antique Persian rugs. They were cleaned to perfection and with care. The owner is very professional and knowledgeable. He took the time to answer all of my questions. The rugs were picked up and delivered promptly. I will only use Steam Sweepers to clean my rugs. They look beautiful when cleaned by Steam Sweepers!

Barbara Kloss
Bellingham, WA

Steam Sweepers is a very thorough cleaning service. They cleaned two rooms, a hallway and my stairs. Adam did the cleaning. He walked through the areas that required cleaning, and went through the notes the owner and I had made the day before. I was very pleased with his results. I had worked with a cleaning company in the past, and had to call them back to retouch some areas. That was not the case with Steam Sweepers, they did the job right the first time. They are slightly pricier than some other carpet cleaning services out here, but worth the cost. I would recommend them.

Roberta Hart
Bellingham, WA

I have been coming to Steam Sweepers for two years and I have to say that the quality of the service is really great. Not only that, but I cannot find anywhere even in my home town of Vancouver B.C. that does similar quality of work. The soaps they use do not bother my daugther with asthma and the stains and soil are always cleaned right out. Thanks Steam Sweepers.


Great job and great service!
True to form, Art and his crew did a great job. Being late on our rental preparation, I called Art with a request for a carpet cleaning and he was able to get us on his schedule and get the job done so we were timely for our new renters.
Adam called to make sure we were at the property so he could get in the house. He was very thorough, considerate, polite and worked hard the entire time he was at our rental. He explained the process and what to expect for a finished result.
From start to finish, Steam Sweepers is great!

Sally H.

I had 5 antique Persian rugs that had never been professionally cleaned. After construction in my home I knew it was time, so I took them to Steam Sweepers. WOW! The care they gave the rugs was amazing. The colors did not bleed, they feel and smell clean, and the price was very reasonable. I couldn't be happier!
