During class students will learn the practical application of, identifying fiber, yarn and carpet constructions, style types and finishes, soiling conditions, cleaning science and methodology, and other issues and concerns faced by individuals who maintain and clean installed broadloom carpets.


The Carpet Cleaning Technician Course (CCT) will help service providers reach professional status and establish themselves as the carpet expert. Reduce callbacks, control chemical costs, and know how to recognize carpet problems before they snag you. No question is left unanswered in this comprehensive course. For those managing floor care in facilities, you will gain the expertise to manage programs, subcontractors, and/or develop and manage in-house carpet care teams.

HANDS-ON KIT:
Each student will receive a carpet cleaning demonstration kit in the mail including various carpet samples, cushion samples, yarn samples,  jumbo paper clip to hold yarn for burn test, fiber identification plastic plate to demonstrate the effect soil has on carpet fibers.

During the class you will be asked to hold each of the carpet pieces so you can get a literal feel for how carpet is constructed. Most especially how to identify different styles of carpet you will be cleaning. One cannot accurately identify carpet by simply looking at it, you must be able to look closely at the yarn and the backing to determine if the carpet is tufted (over 90%) compared to woven. You should know about some of the most common types of carpet cushion used and how it can affect your cleaning. You will use the jumbo paper clip to hold the yarn when you burn it to help you identify the different yarns used in the manufacturing of carpet.

Course Instructor: Mark Violand

Mark Violand has been in the floor covering business since 1977. Carpet care was his first encounter. As consumers became more interested in other types of floor coverings, so did Violand. As a certified senior carpet inspector, Violand now operates an inspection, correction, and repair business which handles all types of floor coverings. He is credentialed to inspect carpet, wood, laminate, vinyl, ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone floors. Violand has been training carpet cleaning and floor covering professionals almost as long as he has been one himself. He currently teaches the Carpet Cleaning Technician and Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician classes for The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). As part owner of one of Northeast Ohio’s largest carpet care companies, he was responsible for the technical training of all service personnel. The company performed services in all aspects of carpet cleaning, carpet maintenance, water damage restoration, color repair (spot dyeing), carpet repair, and carpet installation.

Industry involvement is important to Violand. He presently works on the Certification Council of the IICRC. He is the past chairman of the Senior Carpet Inspector committee and the current chairman of the Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician committee and the ANSI/IICRC S800 Standard and IICRC R800 Reference Guide for Professional Inspection of Textile Floor Coverings.

Certified by the IICRC in many categories, prior involvement includes serving on the IICRC Board of Directors from 1987 to 1991 and being part of the Public Relations and Marketing committee for more than eight years. Violand was the national president of the United Carpet Cleaners Institute (UCCI) in 1987-88, and was the founding director of UCCI’s Cleveland Chapter, which still meets quarterly as a chapter of the Society of Cleaning and Restoration Technicians (SCRT).
