So What's this "Vapor" Stuff
in a
Steam Cleaning Business

Everyone is familiar with the traditional tile/grout or other hard surface cleaning method.

It goes like this.

Up pulls a large van filled with a two hundred foot 3" hose, a high impact steam generator and a wand nozzle which forces steam-filled water onto a surface and then partially extracts it.

This traditionally leaves your carpet, deck or floor still very damp. It will usually take several hours for this to dry completely.

But not any more.

The NEW method of cleaning with steam will use "less than 4 gallons of water" to clean  all hard surface floors (tile and hardwood floors included) and decks (plus a whole lot more items) found in a traditional 2,000 square foot home.


New technology allows a small amount of water in a "dry vapor cleaning machine" to be heated to around 375 degrees.

Using cellulose and HEPA approved filters all hard surfaces, when using this machine type, are not only cleaned but disinfected too.

There is essentially no moisture left on a surface because moisture left evaporates very quickly.

After all it is steam!

Cost of Starting  Your Steam Cleaning Business

If you have a car, even a small mini-van, your portable dry vapor and/or steam carpet machine will fit into it.

Your machine ranges in size from a traditional vacuum cleaner to a regular garbage can depending on the function of your machines.

The market leader for these machines is a company called Daimer.

Not only will they train you but can offer attractive finance terms for any machine(s) you purchase. This is a real Bonus!

The cool part of starting this small company is that portable steam machines cost from far less than $1,000 up to less than $4,000. Your Daimer representative can fit the exact machine to the services you offer.

Vapor steam cleaning leaves any room smelling fresh and clean.

Both homeowners and business owners can instantly notice a huge before and after difference in how vibrant the area is.

Marketing Your Business:

Initially, here are some low cost marketing ideas to jump start your steam cleaning service.

  • Use Craigslist to advertise why you're different than others.
  • Have cards and a flyer made that emphasizes the "benefits" of your service and go door to door in select neighborhoods chatting and leaving your flyer.
  • Potential customers use the Internet and not the telephone book to find services they will use. Therefore, at some point you will need to have a website. I recommend Solo Build It as an option for building your site. I use them to build this site and I don't know any technical stuff to build it. They take care of all that.

Personal Experience
Commercial Business

Ginger, a single entrepreneur, noticed that practically every fast food restaurant has restrooms and food prep areas that are less than spotless. In fact, how many fast food restrooms have you been in where the floor is sticky or has build up dirt?

She contracts with area managers to clean these once a quarter.

Yes, it's some night work but she makes a bundle and then some.

Ginger recently mentioned to me she is expanding her effort to small manufacturing plants and Collage/University dining facilities.
