One of my passions is imparting knowledge to others and I carry this out by training for various entities in the UK. The main two are for The ALLTEC Network in Fowlmere nr Cambridge and the other The National Carpet Cleaners Association in Kidderminster.

Advanced Spot & Stain Treatment and Removal Course

You will learn how to identify the nature of a stain, specific things to look out for and how to advise the client before you start. Stains can be complex and require patience and knowledge of appropriate cleaning solutions. It is important to define what fabric, fibre, dyes and finishing agents have been used to create the soft furnishing being worked upon. You will learn to identify the stain and establish the chemical solution to be applied. The course teaches how to determine the expected results, and not to guarantee that complete removal of a stain will be achieved.

This is a one-day course, held in Kidderminster at the Museum of Carpet. It does not include an examination, however each delegate will receive an attendance certificate, course manual and three spotting tools which can be used on the day and taken home to use again.
