Commercial Carpet Maintenance Technician - CMTCMT: (2 day course) The Commercial Carpet Maintenance Technician course teaches fundamentals of carpet cleaning and entry-level commercial carpet cleaning techniques to individuals engaged in the maintenance of commercial facilities. Topics include fiber types and characteristics, fiber identification, carpet construction and styles, dyeing at the mill, soil characteristics and the chemistry of cleaning. This course will also introduce the technician to the 5 methods commonly used in carpet cleaning.

In addition to the basics of carpet construction, emphasis will be placed on teaching IICRC S100 carpet cleaning methodologies, safety procedures, and pro-active techniques to individuals who will perform these procedures in the field. Course graduates will have a basic understanding of the importance of preventative, interim, restorative and salvage cleaning and how they contribute to the overall success of the commercial carpet maintenance program.

The differences between the CCT and CMT courses are, basically, a focus on either general or residential versus commercial applications.
