Textile Colour Repair - Online Virtual Classroom

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.

• Pre-testing and Pre-inspection.
