Bud and Barbara Snyder opened
Spotsgard dry cleaners in 1968 in
Aurora, Illinois. The knowledge and
experience that they gathered about
spot removal, chemical usage, types
of fabric and how each reacted to
different kinds of chemicals has
been very useful in helping build a
successful carpet cleaning business.
Steamgard first started in 1972,
beginning with a single portable
machine and one crew. In 1975,
Steamgard became the first in the
area to have a truck mounted unit.
In 1978, Brent Snyder (their son)
joined the company. With the power
to do large jobs more efficiently
and with much higher quality,
Steamgard began to grow in both the
residential and commercial fields.
In January 2006, Barbara Snyder
passed away leaving Bud as the sole
owner of Steamgard. He continued to
expand the company with the help of
his son, Brent. Bud passed away in
March 2010. Brent and his wife Sara
will continue to grow the family
business with the same focus on high
quality and excellent customer
service that has made Steamgard a
success over the years.
