Carpet Dyeing and Colour Repair (two day course)

Who should do this course?

Carpet Dyeing and Colour Repair is aimed at cleaning and flooring industry professionals. It is a perfect course for carpet cleaners wishing to expand the portfolio of services they offer.  It is strongly advised that trainees have a good grasp of spot and stain removal techniques so trainees from the flooring industry may wish to attend one of those courses, either before or after this course, too.

What makes this course special?

This new course is tutored by Gabriel Andreca. Gabriel is out in the field plying his trade week in and week out. He doesn’t just teach the theory of carpet dyeing and colour repair, he alerts you to the practical challenges you will face and shares his experiences in how to overcome them.

Gabriel has developed exceptional liquid dyes (rather than powder) which will allow you to consistently reproduce colour exactly, crucial for dyeing large areas and rugs. The dyes are made in the UK and are of the highest quality.

There will also be an option to join the network of WoolSafe Approved Colour Restorers with a dedicated directory that will be promoted to carpet mills, retailers and insurance industry.
