Offering the most in depth and comprehensive training you will find, taking place in our purpose built International Training Centre in Cornwall and designed to give you all the tools you need, from technical expertise, demonstrations and actual hands on practical experience helping to build the confidence you need to provide the highest quality of service to your customers. Full ongoing technical support whenever you need us as we have a vested interest in making sure you and your business soar.
Carpet Cleaning is not rocket science, but it does require knowledge, understanding and skills to be learned. Get it wrong and at best your job will be slower and lacking in customer satisfaction, at worst you can ruin a valuable carpet. But do it the correct way and you will have cleaner, drier carpets and delighted customers.
At Solution World of Clean, we teach you to work to a standard. Not any old standard but to those laid down by the British Standards Institution in their PAS 86:2008 Professional Inspection, Maintenance, Cleaning And Restoration Of Textile Floor Coverings Code Of Practice.
Whether using traditional detergents or the newer detergent-free technologies, Solution World of Clean training will help you to achieve the best possible results from your existing equipment and cleaning chemicals.
Our carpet cleaning course is spread over two days. Doors open at 8am for an 8.30am start finishing around 5-5.30pm There is a very good reason for this. To maximise your learning potential, both theory and hands-on-the-tools practical, one day is simply not enough! Others have tried to compress everything into one days training but have often fallen short of what is required.
Practical sessions will include how to test the pH of both chemicals and carpets, fibre identification using different techniques and to finish Day 1, an introduction to spot and stain removal. How other trainers can allow their students to clean carpets without them ever having the practical skills and experiences of spot and stain removal defies logic!
On Day 2, the fun really starts! When the theory of cleaning has been completed, the tools of our trade are wheeled out. You will firstly carry out a real world pre-cleaning inspection in our state of the art mock home and office rooms. You will then have the opportunity to apply your new found knowledge and then develop your skills to clean these carpets and stairs using many different systems:
- Bonnet cleaning & Pad-Capping
- Dry compound carpet cleaning
You will also have the opportunity to trial different tools and attachments from the extensive stock of Solution World of Clean carpet cleaning wands, tools and accessories range.
All training courses provided are generic and apply equally to users of traditional detergents as well the newer developments in detergent-free cleaning. The knowledge and skills taught will allow the students to work to British Standard’s BSI PAS86 (2008) Standard for carpet cleaning.
We appreciate that new technicians in particular will have 101 questions that they wished they had asked on the day. Again, we have a solution or two. At the end of the Training Week, we again open our doors on the Friday until lunchtime so that anyone, whether they attended our courses or not, are welcome to call in and discuss any issue, sample any product or trial any of our machines in stock. Or simply chat and have a coffee.
Finally, there is a comprehensive 24/7 support facility for all carpet cleaners, whether new technicians or seasoned professionals, on the Solution World of Clean owned specialist industry forum www.cleantalk.co.uk
Training should not be considered as an expense, it is an investment in yourself and your business. Do not compromise.
Ken Wainwright, the Solution World of Clean Trainer, has had both the Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Training Courses recognised by our leading national trade association, enabling attendees to sit the NCCA entrance examination at the end of the course.
Solution World of Clean have raised the training bar even further. Not only do we have new, larger and better training facilities, but we have also introduced model rooms where the students can not only practice their new found knowledge and skills on a wide range of equipment for all of the carpet cleaning systems, but they will also have the opportunity to conduct a real-world survey and audit in order to complete a professional quality quotation.
Most training providers treat spot and stain removal as a separate training course, which Ken and Nick also offer. However, appreciating that a new technician will be required to treat spots and spills as well as clean carpets, an introduction to spot and stain removal has been structured into the carpet cleaning training course. Students will spend up to 2 hours on the first day just removing spots and stains.
The dedicated specialist Spot and Stain Removal Course takes the skill set to a whole new level where advanced, as well as basic, techniques and products are taught, used and practised.
About our Trainer.
Ken Wainwright has run his own successful carpet and upholstery cleaning business for 36 years. During this time he has been able to experience and observe massive growth, developments and changes within the industry.
In 2003, with the support of CleanTalk founder Paul Elliott, Ken organised the first of many hugely successful hands-on technical training days, a concept he later took with him when he became a director of the National Carpet Cleaners Association, organising and hosting both the Technical Roadshows and later the training workshops.
As the training side of his business grew, Ken became involved in training and mentoring both individuals and companies alike until, in 2013, he teamed up with Solution. Both Ken and Solution World of Clean Ltd MD Nick Robertson-Vousden were disillusioned with the quality of training generally available within the industry, especially for new and improving technicians. Everyone seemed to follow a similar format of theoretical sessions with a little demonstration of equipment. Structured hands-on-the-tools sessions, essential for new technicians, was not scheduled into the programme.
Determined to offer a superior learning experience, Ken and Nick developed a series of training courses, to be run in a dedicated training facility at The Solution World of Clean HQ, where student participation would be an integral and compulsory part of the programme.
Free food and drinks provided and ample free parking.
Please only book if you can make the two days – course fee is non-refundable.
