IICRC Releases Revised Standard for Professional Carpet Cleaning S100

VANCOUVER, WA- The IICRC announces that the revision of IICRC S100 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Cleaning is complete. S100, a procedural document, provides a specific set of practical standards and a reference guide for carpet cleaning. According to IICRC President Lee Zimmerman, "It does not attempt to teach comprehensive carpet cleaning procedures; rather, it provides the foundational principles for correct cleaning practices."

This document was created by the Joint Industry Task Force for Carpet Cleaning Standards, and was made possible through the generous contributions of a dedicated group of experts that includes: allied tradespersons; cleaning chemical and equipment formulators and manufacturers; carpet manufacturers; international, national and regional trade associations; organizations serving the professional cleaning industry, both independent and franchise; cleaning industry training schools; cleaning service companies; and others with specialized experience. Larry Cooper of Denver chaired the S100 Committee. Members of the editing committee included: Larry Cooper, Barry Costa, Andrew Bober, Doug Bradford, Jeff Bishop, Clifford Grost, Doug McGettigan and Ruth Travis.

IICRC S100 is similar to other IICRC Standards in that it uses a two-part format: the Standard itself, and a supplementary Reference Guide. The Task Force took into consideration the importance of indoor environmental quality in this edition. Cleaning for health has become a very important aspect of what professional cleaners do as stewards of the indoor environment. Orders can be placed through IICRC Headquarters. The cost is $35.

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is the certification registry that develops and monitors educational programs and standards for the inspection, cleaning and restoration industry.
