He also gave special tips on spotting and urine decontamination. Jessika James from Proline treated everyone to a great Chinese dinner and CTI provided door prizes.

Central Coast Chapter Director Rick Lewis wants to remind everyone that “The Cleaners Coffee Club” meetings in San Carlos and Sacramento are a great place to meet and network with other cleaning professionals in a casual setting. The meetings are sponsored by CFI and ProLine University of Cleaning & Restoration, courtesy of past CFI President Steve Kaufman. For further information call Rick Lewis at (650) 766-5630.
