Apex Floor & Furniture Care, a family owned cleaning firm based in the northern part of Tampa Bay (Spring Hill) FL, was chosen last year to be part of an elite training program for oriental rug and fine fabric care conducted by rug specialist Lisa Wagner and fine fabric specialist Jim Pemberton.
After graduating from the 6-month training program, the owners of Apex Floor & Furniture Care (Ron & Jackie Wood) decided to pursue Textile Pro Certification, which entailed case study documentation of cleaning rugs and upholstery.
“Most industry certification programs involve taking a short test with multiple choice questions, and do not guarantee that the student actually knows the craft. Jim and I actually wanted to know that we were training not the best test takers siting at a desk, but the best textile cleaners out in the field”, explained Ms. Wagner.
“Our industry has lacked advanced textile training for years, so it is exciting to see these professional cleaners commit to excelling in their craft through this program. It only allows them to better serve their community’s rug and fabric needs.” added Mr. Pemberton.
Only 13 companies nationally achieved Certified Status in the first wave of Textile Pro graduates, Apex Floor & Furniture Care being one of those earning the coveted designation. Check them out at www.Apex-CarpetCleaning.com
