UK Course

UK-iconThe Master Rug Cleaner Program is a limited enrollment opportunity to work with Ellen and Aaron over a one-year period.  The UK course will be held at Red Dragon Rug Spa Crosshands, Wales.  The program consists of two 3-day sessions.  During the first part, you will learn the basics of starting your own rug cleaning business or enhance your existing business.  There will be classroom presentations as well as hands-on cleaning for each person under the supervision of Ellen and Aaron.

After the first session, assignments are given that reinforces what was discussed.  Six months later, it’s back to Wales for three more days of advanced training.  There is special emphasis on rug identification because “the best marketing tool is your product knowledge.”  You will learn family secrets of how to catch rug problems even more experienced professionals could miss.   

Ellen and Aaron are available for consultation at no additional charge during your one-year Master Rug Cleaner Program.  This is a key feature of our coaching program because when you get into trouble where do you turn?  If it looks like a problem rug and you are not sure what to do, email a photo before you have a “situation”.  If you have a marketing question, your team of experts is just an e-mail away.

We focus on practical knowledge and demonstrate economical and sensible chemical and equipment packages for start-ups or to improve efficiency of an established business.  One size definitely does not fit all.
