Craig Lazenby of Hydra Carpet Care
“This message is just to say a big thanks to the training team at Prochem. I attended one of your 2 day carpet cleaning courses a few months back knowing absolutely nothing about cleaning carpets, my trade is just to fit them, and I learned so much on your course the cleaning is now going hand in hand with the fitting doubling my work load, I am getting cleaning off the back of fitting and vice versa. This has been a great success attending your course and I have had a 100% conversion rate from on-site inspections to getting the job through the knowledge I was taught and my keenness to learn”.
Anthony Nash of A+ Cleaning Services, Stroud, Gloucestershire
“It was my local distributor who advised me to come on a Prochem carpet cleaning course and I’m really glad I came. I feel so much more confident since doing that course. I always test fibres and dyes now and I feel I know exactly what I’m doing. Taking the training course has definitely had a real impact on my business. I am hoping to continue moving away from general cleaning to a more specialised (and more lucrative) carpet and upholstery cleaning service. The trainers were great and I absolutely recommend other carpet cleaners to do the course”.
