Rug Cleaning Tech (RCT)

Hands-On Demonstration

Professional cleaners are raving about it:
· “It’s a whole new level of technical training. A complete rug cleaning plant!”
· “Never dreamed I could make so much money with so little investment!”
· “$3.00 per square foot for rug cleaning sure beats 20-30¢ per ft2 for carpet cleaning any day!”
· “Top-notch instructing made this the best IICRC-approved course ever.”
· “It’s the most practical, hands-on course I’ve ever attended; we cleaned and dried 22 rugs in class.”
· “Colorfastness testing, fringe cleaning, total urine odor removal – they demonstrated everything.”
· “Finally, I’m comfortable in identifying rugs and cleaning rugs safety. It’s a new level of cleaning!”

Time to Diversify . . . or Die!
IICRC-approved Rug Cleaning Technician (RCT) certification. Why? Consumers are turning to more wood and tile flooring in living areas. But there’s a saying in Dalton, GA: “Put down a hard floor and within 48 hours, there’ll be a rug on top of it!” For this reason, as of 2007, area rugs have reached 26% of total carpet production, and it’s still climbing.

Hey, don’t know about you, but by far I’d rather clean a rug in my facility on my time schedule for $3.00-6.00 per ft2, than drive to a home or business, and set up and clean wall-to-wall carpet for 20-40¢ per ft2. That’s $324-$648 to clean a single 9×12 rug in less than an hour!

Fringe Cleaning: before & after

Everyone is welcome at this industry-exclusive course; in fact, we guarantee that you’ll be a much better on-location cleaner after this course. But to take the IICRC-approved RCT certification exam* following the instruction, you must already have current IICRC certifications* in residential or commercial carpet cleaning (CCT or CMT) and Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning (UFT). Registration fee includes the entire three-day hands-on course, student manual, inspection forms, and lunches each day. The IICRC RCT $50 exam fee is separate and payable to IICRC at the end of the course.
