Anthony & Shannon Belmonte, owner/operators of Naples Rug Washing Company, were two of a select group of approximately 20 Oriental and specialty rug washers from all over the United States and Canada invited to attend Rug Restoration Seminars “Advanced Rug Washing & Oriental Rug ID” class held February 27-March 2 2017 at the amazing state-of-the-art facility of Dry Concepts in Davie, FL. Often working late into the night, this enthusiastic group openly shared trade secrets and swapped valuable tips that would not normally be shared between friendly competitors.
Renowned rug washing and restoration specialist, Nathan Koets of Clean Oriental Rug LLC in Grand Rapids, MI and Paul Lucas, owner and lead chemist of ChemMax, a small-batch manufacturer of custom-designed rug washing solutions in Norton Shores, MI, and popular industry coach and product distributor Cameron Mayville of Brite-N-Kleen in Omaha, NE taught and performed various cutting-edge methods of cleaning specialty rugs such as silk and faux silk Oriental pieces, rugs with dyes that are not stable and are expected to bleed, and animal hides. The esteemed group of cleaners also tackled projects such as re-latexing custom tufted rugs, and discussed important topics such as pre-inspection, area rug repair, water removal, contamination containment, and speed drying. Rounding out the educational event with hands-on Oriental Rug ID training was 23-year industry veteran Lynn Tall of Rug Advocate in Saugus, MA.

Excited to be at the forefront of rug education, Anthony & Shannon have been using the advanced methods of cleaning and caring for specialty textiles that were learned at Rug Restoration Seminars “Advanced Rug Washing & Oriental Rug ID” class since returning to Naples Rug Washing Company with great success and customer satisfaction.
