THE MASTER CLEANER
Franco Preo started business April 1988 and after 6 years trading was at a crossroads – either time to give up or professionalise.
1993 – He was a founding member of the Master Cleaners Guild Carpet Cleaning Division, serving on the Committee for six years, and started honing his skills in training there. Training for carpet cleaners became available for the first time in Australia in 1995 and Franco was in the first group to receive formal training in Perth. After that he became a training junkie, attending every course he could to expand his knowledge and potential.
2000 – He then went on to found what is now known as the Carpet Cleaning Association of WA (Inc) (formerly The Advantage Group Carpet Cleaners), staying on as President for 7 years, then as Training and Technical Officer until present day.
2003 – He was also involved in helping to get the Green Stamp environmental project off the ground.
2004/2005 – Saw Franco involved in setting up the Competencies for a National Qualification, as well as being a consultant in setting up a training course locally through Tri Training, resulting in 18 WA carpet Cleaners being the first in Australia to achieve their Cert II PRM20604 qualification.
2006/2007 –He was recognised by the BSCAA(WA) as the “Carpet Cleaner of the Year” as voted by his peers.
2008 /2009 – He then completed his Cert IV in Training and Assessment TAA40104, allowing him to start delivering formal training himself to the WA Carpet Cleaning community
2010 – Was the year he was awarded the title of Registered WoolSafe Inspector after undertaking further studies to qualify himself in reporting and assessing on problems with carpeting and upholstery, able to carry out physical and chemical investigations and then report on any problems that clients may have.

We take quality service very seriously and strive to give you the customer, the very best level of service available to you here in WA, no matter how big or small, easy or technically challenging.
