All skill levels welcome! Come spend the day learning how rugs can be washed. The class is entirely hands-on and we’ll explore techniques from the most basic procedures to some advanced spotting and color run removal. ARCS one-day wash class covers all aspects of cleaning rugs. Various sizes, fiber contents, concerns, and cleaning processes are demonstrated at Randy Hyde’s wash facility in Portland, OR. This hands-on cleaning course is intended to facilitate learning by doing. Cleaning techniques are demonstrated for those just starting out as well as those who have some automated equipment. The goal for both veteran and new rug washers is to increase your knowledge and expertise in the art of cleaning rugs. No prior knowledge of rug cleaning is necessary.
We anticipate this class being a heavy hands-on cleaning course and they should come prepared to wash on the wash floor. You should bring attire appropriate to get wet and should bring your own Wash boots to the class.
No prior knowledge of rug cleaning is necessary.
