Independent carpet cleaning companies, franchisees and in-house carpet cleaning contractors can become WOOLSAFE Certified Operators.
They must be fully trained in all carpet cleaning techniques, have been in business continuously for a period of at least 5 years and be a member of a recognised professional or trade association related to the cleaning industry. They must attend a WOOLSAFE training course, pass the exit exam and meet other requirements relating to their business and professional associations.
Certified Operators undertake to use WOOLSAFE-approved products whenever they clean or maintain wool or wool-rich carpeting.
The Woolsafe Certified Operation Programme:
• Trains, examines and accredits leading carpet cleaning companies.
• Requires the use of WOOLSAFE-approved products, thereby ensuring the highest standards in wool carpet and upholstery cleaning and maintenance.
