The process of cleaning and restoring fine oriental and area rugs requires a level of expertise and knowledge that takes years to achieve. Different types of rugs require different cleaning methods, so it is vital that your rug cleaner be able to match the correct cleaning procedure with each type of rug. This knowledge is at the core of the Master Rug Cleaner Program.
The Master Rug Cleaner Program was founded in 2006 by Ellen Amirkhan, owner of the 100-year old Oriental Rug Cleaning Co. in Dallas, Texas, and Aaron Groseclose, President of MasterBlend. These two recognized industry leaders and experts have collaborated to synthesize their wealth of information into a year-long, hands-on program to share with other industry professionals who want to expand their knowledge and understanding of oriental rugs and their care and cleaning. During this year of intense training, Ellen and Aaron take the mystery out of oriental rug cleaning and present a clear and concise method for running a successful rug cleaning business. The combination of Ellen's expertise plus three generations of oriental rug cleaning experience and Aaron's knowledge of cleaning chemistry and technology gives Master Rug Cleaner Program students an unparalleled opportunity to gain in-depth understanding of all aspects of the care, cleaning, and repair of oriental and specialty rugs.
