The Olde World Rug Washing Company

The Olde World Rug Washing Company

Len Hume and his gracious wife Annette of Professional Carpet Systems of Niagara (PCS of Niagara), invited our industry (organized through the CFCRA Canadian Flooring Cleaning Restoration Association) to his rug cleaning plant for a tour. It was a real eye opener! You really need to see how his company professionally cleans area rugs. It puts most of our cleaning systems to shame.

It was a fun and very educational day. Len operates a complete and very professional cleaning business. He even showed us a beveling and carving design method they perform to personally monogram carpets. They design and sell these creations to customers for an added profit $$$.

I generally hear that no one wants to spend high prices on carpet cleaning. General Motors still sells Cadillac’s at high prices and we can be assured that Len is a Cadillac Carpet Cleaner with more work than he can handle some days.

We all wish to thank Len, Annette and staff for going out of their way and accommodating our industry. The wine tasting tour afterwards was a great way to end the day.

Take a peek at Lens website…it includes rug cleaning videos and can be a great learning experience. Be sure to check it out here.

Shaw Floors Introduces LifeGuard Waterproof Carpet

Breaking News:

Times are Changing for the Better!

Shaw Floors might just be the company that will bring back the mass flooring installation market to carpets again. Carpeting up until now has not necessarily served the industry and homes very well when it comes to serious spills, stains and odors from pets etc.

Shaw has recently invented the new LifeGuard Waterproof Carpet with waterproof backing, keeping spills, soils and odors within the carpet. This new technology prevents these and other contaminants from seeping into the underlying concrete or wood flooring causing cleaning nightmares to both the owner and the cleaner. This is the major reason why the trend has switched from luxury soft surfaces to hard flooring substitutes.

Made with R2X stain and soil resistance system – taking the worry out before spills seep in – blotting and extraction becomes easier and more effective. This new technology in carpets will allow the cleaner to offer a truly clean and odor free guaranteed carpet cleaning process.

Hats off to SHAW, we as professionals need to support them.
