Excellent 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 helper are very professional. They did a great job for me. I would not hesitate to recommend them and will certainly use them again.

Have had excellent experiences with Steam Sweepers. They provided pick up and delivery for a big job — very helpful — and for a recent small job (2 rugs) they finished the cleaning and drying ahead of schedule. Thumbs up

This is an excellent business! The quality of the work was better than expected. The results were better than promised. The price was less than quoted, and the completion date was a week earlier than promised!.

They have cleaned one rug for me previously, I am heading now to pick up another rug, and dropping off two more. They are very honest, forthright, and have reasonable prices!
