Starnet Floor Care convened in Dallas, Texas for its annual convention, February 20-21. Marking its 5th year, a record 95 floor care professionals attended the convention to learn about driving operational improvements and expanding services and to see the newest innovations in cleaning chemistry and equipment.

“Starnet Floor Care continues to grow in all aspects of its business,” said Eric Boender, director. “We now have more than 300 full time technicians maintaining more than 200 million square feet of carpet and 50 million square feet of hard surfaces annually throughout the United States and Canada. While carpet care remains a significant focus for our network, several years ago we increased training and education across floor covering categories to provide customers a single source solution for all their flooring maintenance needs.”

Day one kicked off with a series of breakout sessions and presentations to improve productivity, quality, and customer satisfaction. At the end of the day, technical service representatives from Tarkett Commercial, Mannington Commercial, Tandus Centiva, and Roppe Holding participated in a panel discussion to address the importance of proper maintenance from a manufacturer’s perspective.

On the second day, Corporate Floors hosted attendees at their maintenance division facility, APEX Surface Care, and provided a tour and review of their operations. XL North, Neverstrip, Jon-Don, and Foaming Floors also presented their newest innovations in cleaning chemistry, high performance coatings, and equipment.

“Starnet Floor Care continues to be a valued service for customers, manufacturers, and the Starnet membership,” said Fred Williamson, executive vice president. “Customers win by improving the safety and wellbeing of their associates along with protecting their floor covering investment. Manufacturers win by reducing customer call backs and claims. Starnet Members win by having an industry leading resource to support their floor care operations.”
