New standard for carpet cleaning introduced
Cleanlink report states standard will be submitted for consideration in the NSF/ANSI 140 Sustainability Assessment For Carpet
The Carpet and Rug Institute has developed new standards for cleaning carpets.
The institute published, in early June, the CRI 204 Commercial Carpet Standard for Maintenance and Cleaning and CRI 205 Residential Carpet Standard for Maintenance and Cleaning.
The new standards will help carpet cleaners to ensure that carpet looks its best and lasts for longer periods of time.
Joe Yarbrough, president, CRI said: “Proper carpet cleaning is vital to the end user’s experience and satisfaction. CRI 204 and 205 highlight the best ways to maintain carpet and its appearance.”
The two new standards were developed after a yearlong effort from the Cleaning Maintenance Standards Task Group, which was assisted by carpet manufacturers and industries affiliated with carpet cleaning.
The standards will be submitted for consideration in the NSF/ANSI 140 Sustainability Assessment For Carpet.
