    A most helpful and informative Hands on Rug cleaning course. I certainly learnt a great deal regards the correct methods and ways to professionally clean the many types of Oriental rugs. Paul in a superb tutor and instructor, so approachable and a font of knowledge on the background, history and construction of all types of rug.

    I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone interested in the cleaning and maintenance of all types of rug. All the staff at Alltec are so happy and friendly, it’s always a real pleasure to come to Alltec whether for equipment or training.
