Sitting down with Suzanne Pucci, president
What differentiates your business from other specialists in the field?
Stanley Steemer has been cleaning carpets since 1947. I have been with Stanley Steemer for almost 24 years and have owned the Columbia franchise since 2001. Our professional deep cleaning services extend beyond carpet cleaning to furniture cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, hardwood floors, air duct cleaning, new flooring sales and installation and 24-hour emergency water restoration. With national coverage that includes more than 300 locations in 48 states, our familiar yellow vans deliver state-of-the-art cleaning equipment, highly trained technicians and exceptional customer service. We manufacture the equipment. We train the people. We guarantee our services.
What is something people would be surprised to know about your business?
We sell and install new carpet, hardwoods, laminates, luxury vinyl tile, and tile and grout to both residential and commercial customers. Estimates are provided at no charge.
What is the latest development in Stanley Steemer?
We are the first carpet cleaning company that is certified asthma and allergy friendly.
How does your business give back to the community?
We are a major sponsor of the McDaniels Golf Classic and Auction, in partnership with Steve Spurrier, that benefits the Palmetto Health Foundation Cancer Centers. Some of our employees volunteer at the event each year as well. We also are involved in the Bark to the Park which benefits Pawmetto Lifeline. We try to give to many other charities, school fundraisers and more as much as possible. This is the most gratifying part of what I do. If we all do at least a small part, Columbia will be a better place.
