Advanced Rug Restoration

Who should do the course?

Advanced Rug Restoration is aimed at cleaning and flooring industry professionals. It is a perfect course for anyone involved in the cleaning or supply of  woven rugs wishing to expand the portfolio of services they offer. You will learn advanced repairs that you can upsell on many of the rugs you already clean.

What makes this course special?

This new course is tutored by Gabriel Andreca. Gabriel spent several weeks in Turkey learning from the best in the business. He brought those skills back to the UK where he repairs rugs for his clients and those of his contacts in the cleaning industry. He will share with you how to carry out these advanced repairs for a fraction of the cost of taking time out of your business to travel abroad to gain these skills.

There will also be an option to join the network of WoolSafe Approved Rug Repairers with a dedicated directory on the WoolSafe websites.
