Joyce Mathie Founder Sargent Steam

qoteA major transformation in my life came about 20 years ago when a former co-worker asked me to test a small machine he had discovered in Europe. He was very interested in my take on this new and unknown steam cleaning technology. I had no idea what to expect so I just started cleaning a few things.

Very quickly I realized this little steam cleaner was going to be the deliverance I had never dreamed possible from the drudgery of back-breaking heavy housework. I was thrilled to be liberated from getting down on my knees, a task that due to some health problems was becoming nearly impossible.

This power tool took away the need for scrubbing and scouring! It gave me the freedom to keep my home cleaner and shinier than ever without the nasty chemicals or hard manual labor.

It took me no time to start telling everyone I knew how much my Sargent Steam cleaner had changed my life. The people who bought also started introducing their family and friends to steam cleaning.

My hobby soon outgrew my spare bedroom so my husband, Alex and I branched into the business of helping homeowners just like us become as fanatic about steaming as we had. We were 57 years old. The time when all our friends were retiring, we started a new business!

Since then I have helped literally thousands of people just like you learn to use their Sargent Steamer to its fullest advantage. I’ve tackled some pretty unique cleaning challenges as I’ve interacted over the last two decades with family, friends and customers.

Now it is absolutely my pleasure to share that accumulated wealth of steam cleaning knowledge with you!

Product History

How a Bar Owner Changed the Cleaning Game

barmanThe Steam Cleaner was invented in the early 1970’s in Italy when a bar owner noticed his wife cleaning the lipstick off wine glasses with steam from the cappuccino machine! (Any restaurant owner will tell you that lipstick stains are a pain!)


As he watched a bright red smudge literally melt away in seconds, he said “WOW! That was amazingly effective. How can I harness that same steam power to clean the the rest of this place? I’ve got to get that thing out of the wall and down here on the floor, the tables, the chairs, the counters.”


He went to work engineering a portable appliance that could be easily applied to any kind of cleaning. He took a 2 quart stainless steel water tank—hooked up some electricity to heat the water—added a pressure valve to force the resulting vapor through a hose—connected a handle that would allow several types of attachments and, voila!


The power of steam at your fingertips! Pretty simple, pretty basic, pretty REVOLUTIONARY!


He discovered that all kinds of “painful stains” like grease, tar, wax, soap scum, sugar, and cigarette smoke were no match for steam vapor delivered at 300 degrees with 50 pounds of pressure behind it.


Now he could clean the floors, walls, windows, stove, sink, bathroom fixtures, counters, chairs, baseboards, tables, chairs, the whole place, and all that was left behind was clean, shiny, sparkling, dirt free, chemical free, sanitized surfaces with NO streaks and NO residue to attract more dirt!


He quickly discovered that steam took the place of all those harsh toxic cleaning chemicals and actually did a better job.


He tweaked and adjusted until efficiency and user friendliness was perfected. He even added an iron attachment so he could take advantage of all that continuous steam while pressing the table linens. Isn’t technology great?


So what are you waiting for? Get your hands on one of these portable little powerhouses and start cleaning the fast, easy, healthy green way today!
