CRI defends validity of SOA testing

August 3, 2010

The president of the Carpet and Rug Institute says questions raised in a recently-published white paper critical of the CRI’s Seal of Approval testing and certification program for carpet cleaning products have long since been addressed and resolved. The paper, “Discussion Regarding a Novel Method: The Use of X-Ray Fluorescence for Quantitative Analysis of Elements in Carpet,” was produced and paid for by Racine Industries.

CRI President Werner Braun said, “The Seal of Approval program has raised the standard of carpet cleaning, which has led to better cleaning products on the market and higher customer satisfaction overall.”
