Workshop#1: 8:30 am – 10:00 am Encapsulation Cleaning:
High speed low moisture commercial carpet cleaning is a must for the cleaning contractor, especially during times such as seasonal slow downs or economic down turns, etc. Commercial properties have image and health concerns (IAQ) to consider as well as simple appearance issues. They typically are not affected by the standard industry trends that you may run into with the residential market. In many cases there is no additional equipment needed to perform commercial carpet cleaning. However, diversifying into encapsulation cleaning gives tremendous advantages over standard hot water extraction methods.
Low moisture encapsulation cleaning allows you to achieve two to three times the production rates of HWE while many times gaining a superior result. This equates to $200- $300 per hour or more with less overhead and job cost. This also opens up a tremendous opportunity to pick up other services in the building such as stone care, tile and grout cleaning, wood cleaning and more. Now is the time to pursue commercial carpet cleaning.
Workshop# 2: 10:15 am – 12:15 pm Advanced Spot and Stain Removal:
Consumer Surveys of those who have their carpet professionally cleaned consistently show that one of the primary reasons why consumers hire a professional is because they believe the professional can do a better job of removing spots and stains. You can clean 999 sq ft of dirty carpet perfectly, but is there is still a green stain in the living room that didn’t come out, the customer is still disappointed. The Advanced Spot and Stain Removal workshop will equip you with everything you need to know to get out virtually every stain – including mustard and children’s fruit drinks. The class will teach you the chemicals, procedures, and insider secrets and “tricks of the trade”. You will learn ways to remove the most difficult stains without a dangerous iron and without messing up a bunch of towels. You’ll have a better understanding of all of the chemicals in your arsenal, and when to use them effectively.
Workshop# 3: 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm Oriental Rug Cleaning
Most every home or office building you enter has wood, tile or stone flooring somewhere on the premises. This means most of these floors also have area rugs. This provides a tremendous income opportunity for the “on-location” cleaner for cleaning and protection of these rugs. This service brings about an average charge of $1 – $3 per sq ft depending on fiber type and construction and can usually be done on location. As you move into “investment grade” or heirloom rugs which can be valued in the tens of thousands of dollars or more, there are “in plant” procedures available. These require special training and typically a significant investment to get involved; however, this is a very profitable services that many times brings in fees of $3 – $7 per sq ft or more.
