Oriental Rug Cleaning in Dallas announces the new Master Rug Cleaning Program, a 1-year apprenticeship with Ellen Amirkhan, a third-generation rug cleaner, and Masterblend President and ICS Cleaning Specialist columnist Aaron Groseclose, the two of which pioneered Oriental rug training in 1992.

The program consists of three days of onsite training; the receipt of IICRC Rug Cleaning Technician Certification; and an additional three days of advanced training in dye-setting, spotting, rug identification and in marketing and growing your rug business.

The training materials include "The Comprehensive Guide to Oriental and Specialty Rug Cleaning," a mega-resource with more than 1,000 photos and illustrations. Check out for more information.
