President’s Letter – July 2008

July 31, 2008

Greetings LMCCA Membership!

With the cost of fuel rising and the tricky economy impacting cleaning decisions, we are all finding ourselves searching for ways to increase business while reducing costs.

Obviously, one solution is low moisture carpet cleaning. The benefits of using less energy and less water combined with timesaving efficiencies equate to major opportunities for carpet cleaners. In fact, many low moisture operations can be accomplished in less time and at a lower cost than traditional systems. This is becoming very appealing to consumers and may even open doors for carpet cleaning where they had previously been closed.

Perhaps that is part of what is fueling the LMCCA’s incredible growth recently. Carpet cleaners considering low moisture cleaning are realizing that there is a tremendous benefit belonging to a large association of like-minded professionals who have a strong voice in the carpet cleaning community. Equally important is having access to the world’s largest collection of research, magazine articles and white papers solely devoted to low moisture cleaning. Often, it is the third-party testimonials and other documentation that can be the deciding factor in the client’s decision-making process.

To make things even better, our new website is near completion. It will sport a new look and have a highly functional search engine capable of searching the LMCCA archives for articles, white papers and other documentation about low moisture carpet cleaning. Of course, it will also help anyone find a list of low moisture carpet cleaning professionals anywhere in the world.

Come to the LMCCA Membership Meeting and to our booth at the upcoming Connections Show in Las Vegas in September and see for yourself!

Stay well. Hope to see you in Vegas!

President’s Corner


As President, and as my fist column in our newsletter, I believe it is appropriate to reaffirm our theology and purpose. As you may know, the Low Moisture Carpet Cleaners Association is an association committed to increasing knowledge and technical awareness relating to all carpet care technologies, while providing answers regarding where low moisture carpet cleaning fits into a comprehensive carpet care program. Additionally, I feel very blessed to be surrounded by a Board represented by acknowledged specialists in the area of carpet care and the use of modern chemistry, equipment and procedures. You should too.

The LMCCA, founded in 2001, has grown considerably due to its commitment to education, technical knowledge and procedural expertise. We have already been recognized as a highly credible source for technological and scientific research including published white papers regarding several critical issues. This highly technical and educational approach has propelled the LMCCA to a leadership role in the fast paced carpet cleaning field.

This year, we will continue to act as a high visibility voice for thousands of carpet cleaners, as well as chemical & equipment manufacturers focused on low moisture cleaning. As a group, banded together with common ideals and goals, we can accomplish great things, and change the way the world looks at carpet cleaning.

I look forward to serving all of you this year. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you feel I can help you in any way. After all, our association is designed to benefit all of us and I am committed to doing just that.

Let’s have a great year!

Mark W. Warner
