IICRC UFT - Upholstery & Fabric Technician - LIVE STREAM

The Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning Technician course covers upholstery fiber categories, fiber identification and testing, manufacturing of the fiber & fabric, chemistry of cleaning, upholstery cleaning methods, protections, spotting and potential problems. A student will have a specific knowledge about fabric and fiber content, as well as furniture construction. This enables students to identify limitations and potential cleaning related problems, on a given piece of upholstery.
