Why Choose Our Rug Repair Course?

So what makes our course different? Well we are a full time rug cleaning and restoration company and Sian works full time in the business. She is repairing rugs on a daily basis all year round, and she’s been doing this for the last 8 years.

We strongly believe that the best way to learn is to be hands on and not reading a manual or watching someone else do the work, you will repeat the repairs multiple times during the 2 days, committing the repairs to muscle memory.

You’ll also take home your own rug sample that you worked on during the course, this will be a good reminder, you can continue to practice on futher and you can also use it as a repair sample to show your customers.
