Blindcleaners.biz is a resource site for professionally-minded blind and drapery cleaners.
Networking: For 18 years our professional network has been supporting the goals of independent professionally minded cleaners in this industry. Our BlindCleaners.biz Newsletter has gone out to hundreds (currently over 550) of readers who are a blend of blind cleaners, prospective blind cleaners or someone with an interest in this specialty niche of the cleaning realm. Articles and content are targetted to the interests of this audience. Our Blindcleaners.biz Newsletter is the broadest regular publication of it's kind in our industry.
We maintain an ever changing database of blind cleaners primarily from the United States and Canada (with representation in other countries such as Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Ireland). The database allows us to connect blind cleaners with mutual interests and serves as a reference point for consumers looking for a local blind cleaner. Network participants have opportunitiies to connect and grow professionally through training classes, webinars and other events we host either virtually or in person.
Training: Our training philosophy and practices are differ from the "training" given to the typical purchaser of a blind cleaning machine or "business opportunity" in our industry. We aren't spending thousands of dollars on online advertising, slick websites or marketing packages to lure prospects to purchase from us. We believe if we provide the resources in training or knowledge (through training or online resources) you'll be better equipped to make the best decisions for the business you envision. Join us to learn from professionals who actually make their living from cleaning custom window treatments (not selling equipment or business packages/franchises to make our money etc.). You'll learn about the window treatments, their care and cleaning in an organized blend of both classroom and hands on sessions. Nothing matches the opportunity to gain hands on personal experience with the various window treatments using a variety of machines in a real shop setting and to ask questions of people who have done this for a living day in and day out.
We have been teaching classes for those interested in learning ultrasonic blind cleaning for many years. In December 2021 we added the support and training for the existing network of Certified On-Site Fabricare Specialists. Those interested in learning how to clean fabric window treatments using injection-extraction cleaning methods are now able to earn or maintain their OnSite Fabricare Specialist Certification at our facilities (Training originated by Jeff Berkowitz back in the 1990's with OnSite). All classes and events qualify for IICRC Continuing Education Units for those who are IICRC Certified in other cleaning specialties.
