Why Woolsafe?

Woolsafe is an organisation that was set up an accreditation scheme in 1998 for professional Carpet Cleaning Companies.


Companies and individuals that pass a Specialist Fibre Care exam and agree to become members are know as Woolsafe Approved Service Providers (WASP’s). The main aim of the Woolsafe Scheme is to counter unqualified cleaners who give the industry a bad name.
Independent carpet cleaning companies, franchisees and in-house carpet cleaning contractors can become WOOLSAFE Certified Operators.



To become WASP it must be proven that you are fully trained in all carpet cleaning techniques, have been in business continuously for a period of at least 5 years and be a member of a recognised professional or trade association related to the cleaning industry. They must attend a WOOLSAFE training course, pass the exit exam and meet other requirements relating to their business and professional associations.

Certified Operators undertake to use WOOLSAFE-approved products whenever they clean or maintain wool or wool-rich carpeting.

Altrincham Cleaning Services support the above program because they are dedicated to cleaning your soft furnishings the safest way.
