“I recently attended both the one day carpet course and the following days’ upholstery course and I would like to take this opportunity in thanking Prochem for your wonderful hospitality during those superb training courses. Conducted by true professionals, with time served experience in the industry, in an interesting and informative way. I would also like express my interest in attending both the hard floor course and the stain removal course, as early as possible”.
Peter Bennett of Prime Image Cleaners, Greenford
“My partner did the one day carpet course some years back and said it was excellent. I was really pleased I did it because although I’m quite new to the industry I was able to go home and teach him a thing or two! I feel much more technically aware since doing the course and I am definitely much more successful with stain removal. I’m also very careful now about over-wetting, which is something that can really cause the problems. However, my only real regret was not coming on a two-day carpet course. I can see now that as I haven’t had that much experience yet, it would have been better for me to come for the two days. In fact I’ll probably come back for the two-day course next year and keep up with what’s new on the carpet cleaning scene”.
