LAS VEGAS — A hundred cleaning and restoration professionals swarmed to the 100-degree heat of Las Vegas for the second annual Piranha Marketing "Hands-on" Symposium, co-hosted by Winner''s Circle Training and Servicemaster of Las Vegas, according to a press release.
The showcase curriculum was the team teaching of Lisa Wagner and Jim Pemberton on Oriental rug and fine fabric care — with a combination of practical classroom training and hands-on testing, inspection and cleaning of everything from synthetics to silk, the release stated.
Other demonstrations included specialty stone work (Interlink Supply), dry cleaning of silk (US Products), odor removal technology (Odorox) and a session on contents-cleaning for fire restoration (Fireline and Mobile Clean), the release noted.
According to the release, new carpet, rug and upholstery cleaning tools and solutions were unveiled at this event by Sapphire Scientific for both natural fiber and synthetic rug and fine fabric care.
Fourteen-year cleaning specialist Joel Belmont remarked, "I got more out of two days of hands on training than I have in ALL of my Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certification classes."
