The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) in collaboration with The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) is forming a “Healthy Carpet Workgroup” consisting of experts (end-user and scientific) who will discuss and report ways to keep carpet healthy in schools through better selection, cleaning and maintenance.

The Initial workgroup topic will be: “Asthma and Allergies – The Role of Carpet Selection and Care”

“If you are a professional involved in carpet care or have other expertise related to asthma and allergies in school environments, please take the survey below to help guide and assist the workgroup’s activities. Professionals completing the short survey will have an opportunity to win a backpack vacuum donated by ProTeam, Inc. and may volunteer to participate in the workgroup. “Workgroup participation will be through a listserve in which ideas will be shared with all workgroup members at the same time by email. All viewpoints will be considered for inclusion in the final workgroup report to be released at ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America in Las Vegas. Other workgroup discussions and conclusions may be published in articles and/or summaries, releases, progress reports, and communications in industry trade journals.”

Here is a link to the electronic survey.
