Lansing, MI, April 07, 2009 --( Joe Gradwohl, president of Buff N’Shine Professional Textile and Floor Care, located in Lansing’s Old Town neighborhood was recently recertified by the Institute for Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

The IICRC certification means that Gradwohl has proven competency in the latest cleaning technologies and environmentally friendly cleaning agents used to extend the life of carpets, upholstery, vinyl, ceramic, masonry and marble stone flooring.

“Homeowners and businesses have invested significant sums in their flooring choices and want to ensure they are properly cared for,” Gradwohl said. “Since technology in our industry has evolved significantly in the past decade, all our technicians attend weekly training programs to learn the latest in the use of our specialized equipment, cleaning agents and how they affect new flooring and textile materials.”
