Advanced stain removal added to training programme

The latest advanced course to be added to the Prochem Europe training programme is likely to prove the ideal solution for carpet and upholstery cleaners wanting to learn more about stains.

An intensive day-long investigation into their nature, origin and how to remove or improve them, the Prochem Stain Removal Course provides extensive hands-on practice on all kinds of stains commonly found both in the domestic and commercial environments.

The day-long course, held at the Prochem Training Academy in Chessington, Surrey, helps delegates learn how to test the pH of a stain, how to find out whether it is water-based or solvent-soluble and what bearing this has on the choice of product, and how to assess what damage the stain may have caused to the carpet or fabric fibres.

Understanding the effect of the various stain removal products on different fibre and construction types is another aspect of effective treatment covered in the course, where delegates are encouraged to practise and improve application techniques on pre-prepared stains on different types of carpet fibre.

The day, which includes lunch and refreshments and a comprehensive training manual to take home, has a lighter touch, too, with a special 'stain quiz' tasking delegates to have a go at guessing what 20 different stains were caused by.

Bookings are being taken for the next course held on 24 October 2013.
