All Carpet Care technicians complete a ‘Carpet Cleaning Technicians Course’ at Cleansmart’s  Professional Cleaner’s Academy.  This ‘hands-on’ practical course is prepared and rolled out at Cleansmarts Nottingham headquarters by one of the best known and most respected trainers in the carpet cleaning industry, Derek Bolton.    Derek started in the cleaning business in 1969 in the contract cleaning sector. His company graduated onto carpet cleaning and he joined the CCA (now the NCCA – National Carpet Cleaners Association)  in the early seventies.  Soon after,  Derek became a Director of the Association.

He has held key roles within the NCCA including President and Training Director and writes regularly for many of the Trade Magazines.  In 1977 Derek became involved with the 3M Scotchgard programme and he later went on to become the principal instructor for the Scotchcare UK network.  Currently, Derek is also Training Consultant for one of the UK’s leading Franchises, who are heavily involved with some of the major retailers in soft furnishings, now instrumental in introducing new fabrics onto the market.

Thanks to Cleansmart for their professionalism and excellent hospitality, and thanks to Derek for an excellent and informative ‘hands-on’ practical course – his do’s and don’ts knowledge of the industry is simply astounding.
