Oriental School Student Success

Auserehlian Oriental Rug Cleaning School graduate’s success stories!

Nathan Koets of Advanced Restoration, Inc. writes…

Dear Phil:

After our conversation on the phone the other day, I sat back and reflected on how much you and Ron have influenced me since my first visit to your school.  The Auserehlian school, and more specifically, my personal interaction with you and Ron has literally changed the direction and focus of my life.

Out of all the rug cleaning schools I have attended since 1994 (and I think I’ve been to most of them now at least once), the Auserehlian school is without a doubt the best one for learning hands-on, how to properly clean a rug.  The best part about your school, for me, was that you not only taught us what to do, but why to do it.  The cleaning science portion of the class is available nowhere else, and left me with an understanding of cleaning on a molecular level.  The knowledge and skills learned at the Auserehlian school apply equally well to upholstery and wall-to-wall carpeting.  Every single day, I apply the basic principles and knowledge that you and Ron have taught me.

I remember well the day I first walked into Castle Cleaning, and the feelings of apprehension, fear and self-doubt I had about entering the world on in-plant rug cleaning.  I was sure that there was no way I would be able to learn in just one week all that I would need to know to get started.  How wrong I was!  I returned home with the knowledge, ability and most importantly, the confidence to immediately clean and care for the most delicate antique rugs and textiles; even those rugs most veteran rug cleaners are afraid to touch.  Along with the referrals, I am active in several trade associations, enjoy traveling to rug-producing countries, and I’m thrilled to be able to make a great living doing what I love most – playing with rugs.

PS:  I almost forgot to enclose a quote one of my customers gave me that sums up my feelings about my work (and I think yours and Ron’s too):

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion.  He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing.  To him, he is always doing both.”

Here is what Joe Jarrell of Sunrise Carpet Cleaning has to say:

I would highly recommend your school to anyone who is interested.  It’s comprehensive, interesting and highly educational.
