//WoolSafe Fibre Care 1-Day Specialist Course

WoolSafe Fibre Care 1-Day Specialist Course


This course assumes that the student has reached a reasonably high level of competence and experience in cleaning carpets and rugs.

It is also intended to be an essential reference and resource for those who are concerned with maintaining residential (domestic) or commercial (contract) wool carpets and rugs, whether they become a WoolSafe-Approved Carpet Care Specialist or not.

Ideally, candidates will benefit from having previously attended, either:-

  • Prochem One-Day Carpet (C1) & One-Day Upholstery Cleaning courses (U1), or
  • Prochem Two-Day Carpet (C2) & One-day Upholstery Cleaning courses (U1), or
  • NCCA 2-Day Carpet & Upholstery courses, or
  • IICRC 3-Day Carpet Cleaning Technician  and Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning courses

With this objective in mind, the course initially follows wool fibre from fleece, to yarn, to carpet, and therefore, it describes aspects of textile processing and carpet manufacture.

Initial processing and carpet or rug construction is followed by basic issues concerned with actual cleaning. These aspects of what are essentially textile technology, determine the ways in which wool carpet and rugs should be maintained and cleaned.

  • Courses commence at 09.00 and finish at 16.30.
  • Included in the cost is a hot meal plus buffet lunch along with 2 coffee breaks.
  • All attendees will get a fully comprehensive training and reference manual to take away, as well as Certificate of Attendance.
  • Parking is available on site.
  • Directions and a list of local hotels are available on request.

Dan Angel of Lemon Carpet Cleaning, Guildford
“The course was very informative. Adam was very good at explaining difficult sections more than once so we understood it.  Since being on the course I am now able to tell customers that I have done the woolsafe course and I feel more knowledgeable within myself when speaking about wool”

Nalaka Kellapatha of Tag Services London
“I found the course very enjoyable, with a lot of good information given by the trainer. Since being on the course has it has made me more aware about the sensitivity of wool carpets. Prior to the course I did not pay much attention to the woolsafe approved products but now I know the importance of them. I’ve been telling my colleagues at work to call Prochem and make the booking”
