HISTORY OF MR. STEAM
The owner’s of Mr. Steam, Brian and Kelly Ritchie, founded a janitorial service in 1995 called A Clean Sweep. Within the first few months of business clients began inquiring about carpet cleaning as well so they decided to offer this service as a courtesy to their valued clients. After a successful first year in the carpet cleaning industry; The Ritchie’s goal was to focus on expanding the carpet cleaning service. So they bought into Valley Steam Carpet Clean in 1996, Many changes have occurred over the years and we have now chosen to keep the name Mr. Steam..
The company, which had been established in 1976, already had a solid reputation and clientele. The Ritchie’s brought a service level that surpassed the client’s expectations; earning the company a golden reputation. They quickly grew from a one van operation to a four van fleet in only five years. As word got around referrals came pouring in resulting in a client list of more than 5,500. In 2006, The Ritchie’s had the opportunity to buy out Mr. Steam, a company that was established in 1983 in the Wood River Valley. By doing so, they chose to forego all flood restoration work and now specialize only in textile cleaning.
Both carpet cleaning companies have an outstanding reputation in their respective service areas; so when merging the companies together they decided to combine the names to create Mr. Steam; servicing both the Wood River Valley and Magic Valley as well as Cassia County, as one firm. Mr. Steam is the only IICRC certified firm in Southern Idaho with a twelve step cleaning system, which allows them to guarantee the most outstanding carpet cleaning experience ever.
