WoolSafe Approved – What it means for You and for your Rugs
Just like YOU – We LOVE Rugs, too!
In September 2014, our company recognized the need to add a premier Area Rug Washing division to our services here in Gillette. Qualifying as an approved WoolSafe Service Provider was an essential part of the process.
The WoolSafe Organization is devoted to promoting the very best practices in carpet and rug care through certification, education and training. Established in 1991, the WoolSafe® Certification Mark is widely recognized in many parts of the world as the standard for excellence and safety.
Your rugs and carpets are a sizable investment. Trust them to only WoolSafe-certified cleaning companies who use WoolSafe-approved products.
In Gillette, Wyoming, your certified WoolSafe Approved Service Provider is Disaster Recovery. Check out our company’s certification online at the WoolSafe website: WoolSafe-Approved Service Providers
