Doug Heiferman and DH Seminars offers technical training seminars in regard to the cleaning of oriental rugs, leather, wood, tile and grout, pet odor and urine decontamination, encapsulation as well as carpet protector application systems.

Doug Heiferman is DH Seminars primary trainer and an IICRC Approved Instructor.  Doug has been successfully working in the industry since 1988. He began his quest by working in a highly successful family related carpet cleaning business, pioneered his own successful high end residential carpet and upholstery cleaning company, owned and operated a cleaning and restoration supply distribution store, and has traveled the four corners of the USA teaching and motivating over 25,000 students beginning in 1994.  Throughout his years of teaching Doug had the opportunity to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with Bridgepoint Systems/Interlink Supply, the industry leader in distribution, manufacturing and education.  Doug  is an independent education consultant currently hired by Bridgepoint Systems/Interlink Supply to teach at many of their corporate distributorships located throughout the United States (See calendar page on this website for class dates and locations).

Doug’s most recent accomplishment is developing the Power Up training class. This is a two day hands-on cleaning seminar that concentrates on the “how” of cleaning and is almost pure demonstration and hands-on. The seminar covers a wide array of topics and is becoming successfully popular both amongst business owners and cleaning technicians alike.

In addition to the Power Up seminar, Doug has created the Power Up Marketing and Business Tool Kit. This manual is geared towards the success of the entry level professional cleaner and is currently available for sale (See manuals page on this website for additional info).
