The PCUCA cleaned the two Denver-area Ronald McDonald Houses in April and May as a donation of more than $10,000 to benefit families who have children in local hospitals and Children’s Hospital.

The Ronald McDonald House provides facilities for families to stay while their children are being treated, primarily for cancer, in local hospitals. The Ronald McDonald House operates on donations, and cleaning is a large operating expense.

PCUCA currently has 90-plus members in the region, and in the last month 12 member companies donated their time, equipment and trained personnel to properly clean and restore the carpets in the Ronald McDonald Houses. Three member suppliers donated all of the products used in the cleaning jobs.

The PCUCA member companies chose to give back to their community and support the efforts of the Ronald McDonald House.

The Professional Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Association is a 34-year-old Not for Profit Organization that was formed to develop the science of the cleaning and restoration industry. The organization hold regular workshops and certification classes to teach technicians and owners the best available information for cleaning and maintaining carpet and upholstery. Organized in 1976, the PCUCA currently represents more than 90 companies in the Denver region. The PCUCA participates with the entire industry in setting standards for the inspection, cleaning and disaster restoration industry. For more information go to
