//1-Day Carpet Cleaning Course

1-Day Carpet Cleaning Course


A comprehensive course for carpet cleaners, contract businesses and public sector operatives.

This instructive and information-packed day covers carpet construction, fibre identification, approved cleaning methods, stain removal, protective treatments and much more. This course, if taken with the U1 Upholstery Course, can qualify student to take entrance exam for joining the NCCA.


C1 and U1 courses are also available to book as ON-LINE “ZOOM” COURSES. We have recently adapted to the ever-changing market, and now offer courses on-line. Students will still gain the same high-level of technical knowledge that they would if attending a face-to-face course at Chessington. Courses are live-stream, which gives beneficial interaction between students and instructors, with question and answer sections to enhance the learning experience.

If you are unsure as to which course might be more suitable for you or would merely just like to discuss a course, prior to making a booking, please e-mail – (including your phone number) or call our sales office on 0208 9741515.

Libra Carpet Cleaning
“I have recently attended the day 1 carpet cleaning course and I can definitely recommend it to anyone that is new to the industry or to increase or brush up on their knowledge. The trainers were exceptionally good, rotating throughout the day and there was so much knowledge behind them that I even learnt loads of new things on the day. Overall the training was in-depth and informative. We were given training folders and we can add to that as and when if you go on another course etc. so you can have it all to hand in the van if needed. The lunch choices were superb! We had salad, chicken balti, rice, naan breads, sandwiches and not to mention the profiteroles which went down very well. I will be booking another course very soon!”

Kerry Sellen
“I recently attended a 1 day carpet cleaning course via Zoom, Phil and Adam were great, so informative, every area covered in the course was explained and discussed so thoroughly. I learnt a lot just from that one day and will definitely be booking up some other courses. Thank you Prochem, well worth it.”

Martine Mellor of Niro Cleaning
“Had an amazing training course with Phil and Jon today I now have a feeling of confidence knowing that I’m a little wiser and may be a little smarter that I can give our customers a better level of service. If you’re looking at having a better understanding on what chemicals and equipment you need for floor cleaning or carpet cleaning then I would recommend these courses to any cleaner or cleaning company. What they offer is knowledge and experience which can only increase productivity within your own business. Their support has been outstanding. Thanks again.”

Alex Hill
“As someone that is new to this industry and starting my own business, I thought I’d try the one day upholstery cleaning and one day carpet cleaning courses over zoom. Both courses were absolutely fantastic and very helpful. The people training are what you would expect, extremely professional and knowledgeable in every aspect. I learnt so much just from these one day courses and would highly recommend.”

Simon of Castleford Carpet Cleaning
“Probably the best on-line course I’ve done if not one of the best courses in general. I was really happy and learnt so much. The course content was outstanding and very well presented. A very professional organization with excellent tutors who were very knowledgeable. I would recommend to anyone and would love to attend another Prochem on-line course. The on-line course was all I needed and fulfilled all aspects. And finally I would highly recommend a Prochem course. The tutors were amazing, the course duration was perfect, the content was good and in depth for newcomers like myself and it was easy to digest. Zero technical errors and most of all enjoyable. Absolutely loved it guys. Thank you and well done.”

Sam Carr from Nottinghamshire
“Thank you very much for running the course, I really enjoyed it.  The course and content in my opinion, we’re delivered exceptionally well and in a way that all could understand. Relating topics to real life experiences made it even easier to understand. I certainly would recommend Prochem online training, it was brilliant. The content was relevant and interesting. The way in which it was presented made it engaging. All questions were answered throughout the course. It’s given me great confidence in delivering exceptional service and standards to my customers. Thank you!”

Luke Barnes of Blue Rose Services, Hampshire
“The Prochem on-line training is extremely well organized and informative, excellent value for money and I wouldn’t hesitate in highly recommending this to others looking to partake in CPD.”

Leszek Lajnweber of Clean and Tidy Natalia & Leon, Basingstoke
“The presentation was very interesting and YOU show in a very professional way. 100% I can give recommendations about the Prochem on-line course. Phil and Adam do a very great job of explaining and giving lots of information about cleaning carpets. Great professional and confident leaders in Prochem course.”

Simon Rose of All Round Cleaning
“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.”

Simon Gasson of So Clean
“A massive “Thank You!” for the recent one day carpet course we attended! It was hosted by Phil Jones at Prochem and was very educational and fun. Our team of Area Managers, Area Supervisors and deep clean operatives were focused from start to finish! Thank you for a wonderful couple of days and for leaving a fantastic impact on the team!! I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone in our cleaning world, as science has played such a massive part of today!!”
