In a continuing expansion of its Seal of Approval carpet cleaning testing and certification program, the Carpet and Rug Institute today announced two “green” additions: higher performing vacuum cleaners for indoor air quality (IAQ) and green cleaning chemical certification.

The CRI Seal of Approval program currently identifies superior carpet cleaning solutions and equipment that, when properly used, remove soil and stains without damage to the carpet. More than 250 products carry the blue and green CRI Seal of Approval.

“The Seal of Approval program sets a new standard for carpet cleaning effectiveness, and we are raising the bar again by enhancing standards for vacuum cleaning performance. At the same time, we are partnering with nationally recognized green certifiers to ensure that a product not only cleans effectively but also is environmentally friendly,” said Werner Braun, CRI president.
