Course Instructor: Mark Violand
Mark Violand has been in the floor covering business since 1977. Carpet care was his first encounter. As consumers became more interested in other types of floor coverings, so did Violand. As a certified senior carpet inspector, Violand now operates an inspection, correction, and repair business which handles all types of floor coverings. He is credentialed to inspect carpet, wood, laminate, vinyl, ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone floors. Violand has been training carpet cleaning and floor covering professionals almost as long as he has been one himself. He currently teaches the Carpet Cleaning Technician and Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician classes for The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). As part owner of one of Northeast Ohio’s largest carpet care companies, he was responsible for the technical training of all service personnel. The company performed services in all aspects of carpet cleaning, carpet maintenance, water damage restoration, color repair (spot dyeing), carpet repair, and carpet installation.
Industry involvement is important to Violand. He presently works on the Certification Council of the IICRC. He is the past chairman of the Senior Carpet Inspector committee and the current chairman of the Carpet Repair and Reinstallation Technician committee and the ANSI/IICRC S800 Standard and IICRC R800 Reference Guide for Professional Inspection of Textile Floor Coverings.
Certified by the IICRC in many categories, prior involvement includes serving on the IICRC Board of Directors from 1987 to 1991 and being part of the Public Relations and Marketing committee for more than eight years. Violand was the national president of the United Carpet Cleaners Institute (UCCI) in 1987-88, and was the founding director of UCCI’s Cleveland Chapter, which still meets quarterly as a chapter of the Society of Cleaning and Restoration Technicians (SCRT). He is currently a Director at Large with National Institute of Certified Floor Covering Inspectors (NICFI).
