Chuck Koshgarian, Koshgarian Rug Cleaning

Don't miss out on this course! It will only be available every other year, you don't want to spend the next 2 years wishing you would've jumped on board sooner!

Jordan King, Oriental Rug Cleaning of Indianapolis

What clients want are answers to their questions and they want them delivered in a clear and authoritative voice. It's how they decide they have come to the right place.

Robert Mann, Robert Mann Rugs

From my experience it is one thing to listen to a PowerPoint presentation on rug ID but it is entirely more beneficial to building your ID skills to actually be able to handle the rugs on the spot.

Frank Cabrera, Enrique's Area Rug Cleaning
