Seven professional carpet-cleaning companies from the Professional Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Association volunteered their equipment, time and labor May 22 to clean the Denver Ronald McDonald House. This was a great opportunity for PCUCA and its members to give back to their community, and giving to an organization like the Ronald McDonald House is very special. 

The seven companies include Academy Services; Ace Carpet & Upholstery Care; Chancey & Sons; 5280 Commercial Carpet Cleaning & Restoration; Chase Carpet Care; Fine Carpet & Fabric Care, and Miracle Services. All of the cleaning products were donated by local supplier Steam Way International. These outstanding companies all support certified technicians and continued education and professionalism in their field. These companies are active in their community and welcomed the opportunity to volunteer to give back to others in need.

PCUCA President Andrew Conklin stated, “Our members volunteer to clean both Ronald McDonald Houses yearly. This gives our organization an opportunity to give something back to the community in which we live, work and play together. The work that is done by the Ronald McDonald House Community is amazing and we are all happy as local companies to work to enhance the efforts of their organization. Ronald McDonald House gives the gift of staying in their house to family members who are going through difficult times with sick ones in their family.”

The Ronald McDonald House takes in the families of sick children who are getting care at Children’s Hospital in Denver. These families come from all over the country and the Ronald McDonald House provides them with a temporary home and support while their children are being cared for. This is just one of more than 210 houses across the nation and the world. The Denver house has been serving the community for more than 25 years, and PCUCA was honored in being asked to take part in providing a service for a charity that has done so much for the community.

For questions about the PCUCA or the Companies who volunteered, contact Jillian Olson in the PCUCA office at 877-447-2822 or email her at jolson@meetingsandevents.com. PCUCA is a 32-year-old, regional professional non- profit trade organization, with 100 member companies that provide education, certification and continuing education for its members.
