In your article, you mentioned the importance of “sharing to improve the relationship of carpet cleaners.”
If you and the others that I have called for help from time to time wouldn’t have shared, I would have too many trials and errors! I have been very successful in carpet cleaning, cleaning what others won’t. I depend on your articles.
There are some things I have not been able to conquer: asphalt, walk-off mats, and ice melters.
The industry needs to share and it will help. The same goes for education of cleaners and we need a way to educate the customer. If the customer knew what to expect, then the uneducated would have a hard time!
Thank you for all you have contributed and helped the industry. I’m just a Master Cleaner still learning.

I was just reading the article on “Cleaning Up With Enzymes” (April 2001 ICS Cleaning Specialist). Great, informative article! Thanks Joe.

ASCR has always structured good relationships with regional Trade Associations, and CFI has worked with ASCR in the past to the benefit of both organizations. IICRC also has been supportive of associations and has shown an intent to be even more supportive in the future. So from the standpoint of a trade association, this change of shareholder status does not affect us either positively or negatively. From the standpoint of a cleaner, I see this as opening up more educational opportunities and choices for everyone.
