About Us

Steamway Craftsmen has been the trusted name in carpet cleaning by more homeowners in Ames for more years than any other carpet cleaning company.  We are locally owned by Roger & Krista Hutson and daughter and son-in-law Heather & Russ Branson; a true family owned business serving our central Iowa customers since 1971.  We are proud to be voted the Best Carpet Cleaning Company in Story County by our long time loyal customers and we look forward to adding you to our cleaning family.  

The technicians at Steamway Craftsmen are true professionals, having completed instructional courses in a variety of carpet cleaning areas such as: Carpet Cleaning, Upholstery Cleaning, Leather and Vinyl Cleaning/Dyeing, Odor Control, Water Damage Restoration, Pressure Washing, Carpet Repair and Reinstallation, Carpet Color Repair and Hardwood Floor Refinishing.  Our technicians have been certified by taking classes and written exams through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification.

Steamway Craftmen's main focus is on consumer education.  We are dedicated to provide the consumer with the latest information, so that you can make an educated decision on choosing a carpet cleaning company.  We provide a 24 hour free recorded consumer information message that allows consumers to phone a recorded number and listen to the differences in carpet cleaning methods and provides questions to ask a carpet cleaner before inviting them into their home. The recording number is 1-888-252-5149 ext. 86002.

Steamway Craftsmen is sought out by the major carpet manufacturers, Dupont, Solutia, Monsanto, as well as fabric protector manufacturers, 3M, Stainsafe, and Valspar to provide service for their warranty customers. Providing service for the manufacturers requires expertise that most carpet cleaning companies cannot provide.

Steamway  is always ready to assist the media in providing protection for consumers. They are part of a nationwide campaign to eliminate the bait and switch Carpet Cleaning Companies that prey on the uninformed consumer.
