Home-grown local businesses are the heart of our community. Kayla Peterson founded Clean Steam Carpet Cleaning because she saw a need for reasonable pricing and excellent service. But she also had a vision of a company owned and run completely by women. As an entrepreneur, her commitment to growth and hard work places her in a leadership role. She has become a mentor to her team, her three daughters, and other women in the community.
Kayla and her all-female crew pride themselves on hard work. They know how they would want their home treated and they strive to provide that experience for each customer. They focus on being able to communicate and personally connect with their customers. Kayla says, “Remember, it’s not a carpet to clean, it is a client to please!”
Kayla is involved with every aspect of this 6-year-old company. With a background in the construction industry, she’s never been afraid to work hard and get dirty. She has three daughters, one of whom is an “assistant technician” and out working hard each day, learning the business inside and out.
Under Kayla’s leadership, Clean Steam Carpet Cleaning has grown from a home-based operation, to a business with a destination location where you can drop off area rugs and upholstery to be cleaned and dried before pick up. They now have three vans and five female employees. She hopes that their example will encourage and empower other women to work hard and follow their dreams. Kayla credits the amazing women on her team and a wonderful community with their growth and success. “I want to remind everyone that you can do more than you think you can.”
Clean Steam Carpet Cleaning is committed to giving back. Along with providing amazing home services, they donate cleanings to domestic violence shelters and other worthy community causes. “Helping and supporting those in need is important to us. We live and work in a wonderful community and we love to give back whenever we can.”
Our area is fortunate to be home to Utah’s only full-service, woman-owned-and-operated carpet, tile, and upholstery cleaning company, and we appreciate their place in our community.
