Rug care specialists launch new trade association

March 1, 2011

The Association of Rug Care Specialists (ARCS) has been formed by influential members of the rug care community. “An association specifically dedicated to this segment of the flooring industry has been needed for some time,” said long-time rug care expert Ken Adams. “The Association of Rug Care Specialists was founded to promote and foster the highest standards of professionalism and technical proficiency in rug care and ensure that we develop the next generation of leaders for this industry.”

Membership in ARCS is open to any firm which cleans, repairs, services, or otherwise maintains area rugs, as long as 95 percent of the work is done at the member’s cleaning facilities and not subcontracted.
