Spotlight of the Month
Esteam Clean, Inc.

The Bardstown-Nelson County Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize Esteam Clean, Inc. as Spotlight of the Month.

I just want to say thanks to the chamber for selecting Esteam Clean to be spotlighted. I am very grateful for all my clients over the years. I am the owner and operator, that means I am on every job. I meet every client and they are great people to work for. I’ve been doing this for about 15 years and hope to continue for many more, and I think that is very possible with great support from friends, family and clients.

This job is physically demanding and I like that, it keeps me young. It’s not glamorous by no means, but I think doing a job with pride is something that makes me feel good and gives me a reason to get up and moving each day.
