Ripley Services, a cleaning firm operating in Fort Worth since 2001, was one of only 20 companies selected from cleaning firms across the US, Canada, UK, and Australia to participate in the Textile Pro Program instructed by rug specialist Lisa Wagner and fabric specialist Jim Pemberton.
The Textile Pro Program is a course of advanced training to develop specialists in the field of oriental and specialty rug care, as well as fine fabric care.
“This is a six month program where we only select twenty companies from a pool of qualified applicants. The companies we choose are based on their level of professionalism, knowledge of cleaning and restoration, and their overall culture of wanting to provide the best service to their clients,” explained Ms. Wagner.
“Our industry has lacked advanced textile training and it’s led to a real deficit in rug and fabric specialists for today’s investment textiles and furnishings. This program is designed for those who are already very good in their craft, to help them excel even more so in this field,” added Mr. Pemberton.
Woven rugs can last centuries if properly cared for, yet the leading cause of rug damage is improper care and cleaning. These companies are given direct experience of handling and washing both antique and contemporary textiles.
Ripley Services already provides rug and upholstery cleaning services. The owner, Greg Ripley, shared that this is an opportunity to become even more skilled at handling especially natural fiber (wool, silk, cotton) textiles for their region.
