Corporate Background

Beginning as a one-man cleaning service in 1947, Stanley Steemer has evolved into the largest carpet cleaning company in the nation with over 280 franchises spanning 49 states. Jack A. Bates, the founder of Stanley Steemer, recognized an opportunity during the late 1940s to start his own indoor carpet cleaning business since the industry was beginning to gain popularity across the nation. Just over 20 years later, Jack’s son, Wesley Bates, graduated from Wittenberg University and was looking to enter the family business, but wanted to pursue a larger opportunity.

Through many trials and tribulations, the duo created their version of a carpet cleaning machine. The company’s innovative truck-mounted, dual-wand cleaning machine debuted in 1976. During the engineering process, Jack and Wesley decided to coin a name for their new cleaning machine. They eventually settled on Stanley Steemer, inspired by both the Stanley Steemer automobile and the machine’s water cleaning technology. Shortly after naming the cleaning machine, the name transferred to being the company name as well.

Just two trucks and two years later, Stanley Steemer sold their first franchise. The franchise was located in Springfield, Ohio, and owned by one of Wesley’s friends. He customized his ordinary yellow van to spell out Stanley Steemer in black lettering. The stand out truck developed into the company’s truck template and the distinctive branding that is still in use today.

Stanley Steemer’s 7 decades of experience has transformed them into the dirt authority of America. With their knowledge of proprietary cleaning techniques, the experts at Stanley Steemer offer a variety of residential and corporate cleaning services and are certified to remove more than 98 percent of dry soil from floors1. The company offers multiple services, including carpet cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, upholstery cleaning, air duct cleaning, water damage restoration services and carpet sales and installation. Today, the company has more than 280 locations throughout the United States and is based in Dublin, Ohio.
