Why Brouwer Brothers?

In 1969, John and Mick Brouwer purchased the franchise rights for the entire Chicagoland area and NW Indiana as one of the first franchises offered by Steamatic Inc. They named their company Brouwer Brothers Steamatic and by forming this company, they brought, for the first time to the Chicagoland area, a patented steam carpet cleaning process that cleaned carpeting and furniture with hot water extraction. Today Rick Brouwer, Mick’s son, is the owner of this fast-growing, family-owned business. He bought the business from his father and uncle after many years of working in all aspects of this fast-growing, family-owned business. Brouwer Brothers Steamatic continues to have a vision that includes the continuing education of all personnel and the reinvesting of company profits into equipment, processes, and on-going training. What began as an operation out of John’s garage, is now a company that employs a team of over 40 people and occupies a 30,000 square foot restoration center in Alsip, IL. Brouwer Brothers not only service our Chicagoland customers but also travel throughout the country to help aid and support our fellow Steamatic franchises with our Large Loss expertise. Over the years, Brouwer Brothers Steamatic has expanded our list of services for our residential and commercial customers, such as water and fire restoration, HVAC system/Air duct cleaning, mold remediation, plus many other related services. Our latest venture and fastest growing service is Brouwer Brothers Construction, which primarily focuses on offering services to restore the structure to its pre-loss state after services like restoration and mold remediation. Brouwer Brothers Steamatic can truly provide our customers with a total one stop shop for all their Restoration, Construction, and Cleaning needs.
