In this two day course you'll receive all the essential information not contained in other courses, without the mind numbing additional information on fabric names, dyeing processes, and chemistry that is “nice to know”, but rarely “need to know” information for the 'Fabric Pro Upholstery Specialist.'


Mikey's Fest testimonials-

The uniqueness of this event has always amazed me....and at the same time surprised me at how each one gets better and better!

The business and personal relationships that this event cultivates is unmatched by any other professional cleaning events that I’ve been apart of.

The culture of “giving back” combined with true entrepreneurialism, is what making “America great again” is all about.

So glad and proud to be a part of this “one of a kind” event.

-Bryan Thomson


This industry has been so good to me, my family. I've been wanting to go for a while, and felt it was time. Then Mike asked me to share my story. A lot changed from the moment I told Mike I would speak, but it just added to my journey. I made a short highlight clip from my first experience, and how awesome it was. I don't have everyone on there, and I didnt take nearly enough footage or pictures.

To say I learned something, is an understatement. Teaching new cleaners the ins and outs of upholstery cleaning, and helping them understand why you do things a certain way was a blessing to me. I was blessed even more by the outpouring of support from people at this event and outside of this event have shown me and my family.

-Kevin Bunce


What an honor it was to be part of this event! I cannot thank all of the organizers, sponsors, speakers, and volunteers enough. Not only was the serve day at the RMH house such an awesome experience, but the knowledge that these individuals poured out to help others in the industry succeed was overwhelming. Lifelong relationships were built here. For someone like myself in their first few years of business it was a game changer. I am still in awe of everything that happened here. The Brandt family is thankful to all of you. I can’t wait to see what happens next! We love you all!

-Danny Brandt


Every once in awhile you get to hit the pause button in life and share your time and efforts to a great cause. For the last 3 days Mark and I served the Ronald McDonald House in Phoenix with an amazing group of people. Three individuals specifically gave their personal time and energies to make this event happen. This event allowed people to travel from all over the US and one came all the way from Australia. My biggest takeaway from this event is we all have a story and we all have experienced the storms of life. Through storms we gain strength and courage to pick ourselves up and start a new day, but we can't do it without our team beside of us. Thank you, every single one of you for allowing me to experience greatness and new friendships over the last few days. Mike Pailliotet, keep on the path to create these moments that benefit these children and their families through their difficult journeys.
