CRI, HFI to form Healthy Carpet Workgroup

June 6, 2011

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

Workgroup participation will be through a listserve in which ideas will be shared with all workgroup members 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. www.Carpet-rug.org, www.hfi.org
