DALTON GA - October 12, 2010.  Seven new vacuum cleaners and one carpet extractor have been recently certified under CRI's Seal of Approval (SOA) testing program for carpet cleaning equipment, include the first carpet extractor from Minuteman.

The Carpet and Rug Institute’s (CRI) Seal of Approval (SOA) program for vacuum cleaners validates performance in soil removal, indoor air quality protection and reduced carpet wear.  Vacuum cleaners meeting CRI’s Bronze Performance Metric now include:
  • Windsor Industries’ models: Sensor XP 12 (SRPXP12), Sensor XP 15 (SRPXP15), Sensor XP 18 (SRXP18), Versamatic 18 (VSP 18), and the Versamatic 14 (VSP 14) Commercial Uprights.
  • PowrFlite model PF600BP Commercial Backpack.
  • VacPro’s FB-SPDM SpeedyMaid Lightweight Commercial Upright.
The Carpet and Rug Institute’s (CRI) Seal of Approval (SOA) program for carpet extractors validates performance in soil removal, water removal, and carpet texture retention. The latest carpet extractor meeting CRI’s Silver Performance Metric is Minuteman International’s X17 self-contained extractor.  

The SOA program now includes a total of 213 vacuum cleaners and 90 carpet extractors that have been submitted voluntarily by manufacturers for evaluation by CRI’s test complex. Since its inception, the SOA program has been responsible for increasing the amount of soil removed from carpet, and thus the efficacy and productivity of cleaning operations, by a significant margin.
