BOISE ID - Friday, October 30, 2009. The Housekeeping Channel (HC), as part of its agreement with the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), is offering CRI certified Seal of Approval (SOA) Service Providers the opportunity for a free listing, complete with the SOA identifying logo. The listing will be part of HC's Cleaning Services Finder that helps consumers find home and carpet cleaning services based on service-area zip codes.

  The Housekeeping Channel is viewed by nearly 700,000 unique visitors each year. Service Providers may include as much information about their company as they like (subject to final editing and space requirements), and it is an absolutely free service, says Housekeeping Channel founder Allen Rathey.

  Companies need to identify themselves in their listing descriptions as SOA Service Providers to have the logo attached to their listing. They should also include all the zip code areas they service. The listing will be hyperlinked to the Service Provider's Web site and the SOA logo will be hyperlinked to the CRI Web site.

   The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) recommends the use of Seal of Approval Products and recognizes those Service Providers that use Seal of Approval Products.

  Those in the cleaning industry who use both a Seal of Approval certified cleaning solution in conjunction with Seal of Approval certified cleaning equipment are eligible to be recognized by the Carpet and Rug Institute as SOA certified Service Providers.
