IICRC Developing New Standards On Stone Maintenance/Restoration, Upholstery Cleaning

July 2, 2012
The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has announced the formation of consensus bodies for the development of a new BSR-IICRC S210 Standard and Reference Guide on Dimensional Stone Maintenance and Restoration and the revision of IICRC S300 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Upholstery Cleaning. 
 
Applications are now being accepted for volunteers to serve on these consensus bodies. The consensus bodies will meet about twice a year, with most of the work being completed online and via conference calls. The new BSR-IICRC S210 standard will encompass the initial, routine, periodic and restorative maintenance methodologies for dimensional stone flooring and fabrication and is set to be completed in approximately 36 months. The updated IICRC S300 standard for professional upholstery cleaning is set to be completed in approximately 24 months.
