About The Steam Team

The Steam Team is a true Austin original, the only locally owned, full-service cleaning,  and catastrophe management company in the greater Austin area. The Steam Team serves homeowners and businesses with a wide range of services, meeting both routine and emergency needs with prompt, expert, guaranteed service. From tile cleaning to disaster recovery we got it!

Founded in Austin in 1983, The Steam Team has steadily expanded its service offerings and was named one of Austin's fastest-growing companies by the Austin Business Journal in 2003. In 2005 we were selected as the only finalist for the Austin Chamber of Commerce Business Awards for customer service. The company has built its reputation on performing beyond even the highest expectations, with greater professional focus and personal involvement than its competitors. From initial consultation and planning, through project management, catastrophe management, reconstruction and restoration, the staff of The Steam Team is professional, dedicated and enthusiastic. The result has been thousands of satisfied clients, an impressive roster of successful projects, and highest standards in the business. The Steam Team vs. The Other Guys. 

CEO Josh Lasch, David Marquardt and their staff are proud to be part of a strong company that has been locally owned and operated for more than 36 years. The Steam Team was voted one of Austin's Best Places to Work in 2004 and since then we are continually growing our list of accolades..
