Steamin Demon Inc. was established in the year 1995 by Mr. Mike Downey in a small town on the Ohio River called Clarksville, Indiana. Mike had just finished with his design and build of an ingenious lightweight commercial carpet cleaning machine that he decided to name the Steamin Demon. This industrial steam cleaning machine which utilized the patented high-flow extraction cleaning technology that he had just developed. The origin of the name, you ask? The Steamin Demon’s namesake was a world champion harness racer from the 1950s.
The Downey family has been providing leadership and innovation in the carpet cleaning industry for five generations. The predecessor of the Steamin Demon industrial steam cleaner was called the Steri-Steam, produced by Mike’s father, the late John M. Downey III, in the 1970s. He was a prominent entrepreneur and businessman in Columbus, Ohio and the owner of John M. Downey Carpet Cleaning which was originally established by his father in 1987, and still thrives in Columbus today. Want more details about our company? Don’t hesitate to contact us with questions!

I own and use a Steamin Demon and brag about it to anyone who is interested. I just did a 15,000-sq. ft. job at a Dallas Country club using the Demon and did it under the time allocated. I also did a 10,000-sq. ft. office area in August and it worked very well on white olefin carpet.
