Stanley Steemer was founded in 1947 by Jack Bates in Dublin, Ohio. Originally names Jack Bates Carpet Cleaning Company, the name was changed in 1976 to better reflect the company’s expanding range of services.
The company operates a franchise of home and business cleaning services. There are currently more than 300 corporate-owned locations and approximately 50 franchises in and around the US. The company is the #1 provider of carpet cleaning services in America for nearly 80 years. In addition to carpet cleaning, the company offers duct cleaning, rug cleaning, water clean up, tile and grout cleaning, as well as hardwood floor cleaning.
Stanley Steemer was the first company to be authorized by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. The company generally advertises via email campaigns or direct mail flyers.
The company was hit with a class action lawsuit in March 2018, claiming the company failed to pay employees overtime.
Headquarters for the company are still located in Dublin, Ohio.
