We were proud to host at our Evanston store last week members of the Carpet and Rug Cleaners Institute of Illinois (CRCII ) for their February meeting. The mission of the CRCII is to advance and improve the carpet cleaning and restoration industry by motivating members to achieve the highest standards of professionalism, consumer service and ethical behavior. As carpet cleaners ourselves, that is very important to us.

An Armenian buffet dinner and drinks were served at the Wednesday, Feb. 18 event. We brought in our own rug repair specialists to demonstrate the art of fine rug repair. It was fitting presentation for the evening’s topic: “Unraveling the Mysteries of Oriental/Handmade Rugs.”

Also on hand were our own Oscar and Sarkis Tatosian, who not only showed many spectacular rugs to the group, but also discussed types of Oriental rugs, care and cleaning tips and more. Guests even were invited to tour our exclusive cleaning plant and showroom.

The CRCII provides opportunities for professional development and it’s an organization we are proud to support.
