If you think about it . . . professional carpet cleaners restore carpet "color" every time it’s cleaned. Right?

So, if you or your employees aren't certified in Color Repair and/or you're not marketing "color correction" to your customers, you may be losing sales to companies that do.

Remember, around every spot, stain or discoloration is a roomful of carpet, upholstery and rugs that also may need to be cleaned.

Color is the number one reason consumers choose carpet. When a know or 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 in-depth two-day course.

The Carpet Color Correction Course covers the history of dye, color theory, the carpet dyeing process, carpet fibers and construction, and spotting procedures, as well as on-location carpet dyeing. Color restoration for sun fading, color enhancement for faded traffic areas, side-match correction and “wear-related” conditions, such as shading, pooling and watermarking also are addressed. The IICRC Color Repair Technician Certification is one of the electives for IICRC Master Cleaning Technician status.

This truly “hands-on” course is taught by Ruth Travis, the Rug Lady. With a B.S. degree in Textiles from the University of Tennessee, Ruth has attended all the major cleaning/restoration industry courses and was the first woman to attain all the IICRC Certifications. With the unique perspective of a small carpet cleaning business owner and carpet inspector, she has over 30 years experience in maintenance and restoration of carpet, rugs and upholstery. Ruth has traveled the US and abroad (Japan and England) teaching carpet color correction to cleaners and restorers.
