Once again, Cheshire Rug Cleaning were pleased and privileged to have recently hosted a 2 day rug cleaning course organised by the NCCA (National Carpet Cleaners Association). The NCCA required a rug cleaning Cheshire workshop that they could use for the course and we gladly offered ours.
It was a pleasure to welcome Paul Pearce from the NCCA, and 11 rug cleaners from across the UK.
The NCCA was established in 1968, and is the only independent UK trade body dedicated to the cleaning of carpets, hard flooring, upholstery, curtains and other soft furnishings. As such it is now nationally recognised by government, media, industry and commerce as the authoritative source of information and advice on all aspects of the industry.
The Rug Cleaning Technicians course covered natural (wool, silk, cotton, linen, coir, sisal) and synthetic (rayon, nylon, polyester, acrylic, olefin) fibres. Weaving, hand-knotting and tufting. Dyeing. Rug types and identification. Cleaning techniques ranging from minimum-moisture to total-immersion. Fringe cleaning. Blocking and minor repairs. This is the industry’s most extensive hands-on rug cleaning course, with live demonstrations of hooked, Flokati, Dhurrie, Kelim, oriental and designer rugs. Plus demonstrations of actual dog urine removal and several methods of fringe cleaning.
We continue to improve our knowledge and skills so that we provide the highest standard of rug care for our customers.
