IICRC Approves the LMCCA as Shareholder

November 17, 2009 – VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) announces that the Low Moisture Carpet Cleaning Association (LMCCA) has become an IICRC shareholder – the Institute’s first new shareholder since 2003. IICRC shareholders finalized the stock purchase agreement at the shareholder meeting in October.

“LMCCA members have been strong supporters of the IICRC for years, serving on committees and task forces and chairing technical advisory groups,” said Paul Pearce, the IICRC board chairman. “The IICRC is pleased to welcome LMCCA to the shareholder ranks and looks forward to a long and fruitful relationship in the years ahead.”

IICRC shareholders are comprised of groups from within or affiliated with the cleaning, restoration and inspection industries. As a new shareholder, LMCCA does not have a seat on the board of directors but does have the same rights, privileges and obligations as other shareholders, including the ability to shape policy, standards and bylaws via participation in semi-annual shareholder meetings.

The LMCCA is a non-profit trade association that aims to increase awareness and knowledge of low moisture carpet cleaning methodologies in order to gain world-wide acceptance of the viability of low-moisture carpet cleaning systems. These systems are used by professional carpet cleaning technicians in order to provide the best possible carpet cleaning system dictated by the carpet itself and the unique environment in which it is in service. LMCCA currently has more than 1,350 member locations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia and Italy.
