Textile Colour Repair


Colour is the number one reason consumers choose carpet. When an unknown “menace” causes a stain or discoloration that ruins that “perfect carpet” the consumer ultimately turns to the cleaning professional for help. Whether a discoloration from acne medication, household bleach, insecticide or urine removes color, or a stain from coffee, plant food, mustard, furniture or soft drink adds color to the carpet, trained technicians can become “heroes” after completing this course.

On completing this one-day colour repair course trainees will have the necessary knowledge and hands on practice to offer colour repair as an additional service, opening up a new income stream and helping to secure cleaning work where solutions to existing carpet issues can now be included in the quote.
