Kaivac, Inc., announces that their No-Touch Cleaning system has been awarded the Seal of Approval for carpet extraction from the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI).

Hamilton, OH-June 30, 2008-Kaivac, Inc., developers of the No-Touch Cleaning system, announces that all of their No-Touch Cleaning systems have been awarded the Seal of Approval from the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), Dalton, Georgia for carpet extraction.

This is the first time a high-flow fluid-extraction or spray-and-vac-type system has received such an award for carpet extraction.  With the simple attachment of a carpet cleaning wand, the Kaivac No-Touch systems can be used just like a carpet extractor.

According to Tom Morrison, Vice President of Marketing for Kaivac, the No-Touch systems were able to earn the Seal of Approval because the machines have advanced three-stage vacuum systems as well as a HEPA-filtered exhaust and blow systems to help protect the health of the user and building occupants.

“Kaivac is more focused on hygienic cleaning than ever before,” says Morrison. “Winning the CRI Silver Seal of Approval just confirms not only that our machines clean effectively and hygienically but that this can be substantiated and measured.”
