Dri-Eaz calls for third-party certification
In December 2004, Dri-Eaz President Bill Bruders sent a letter to industry professionals calling on restoration manufacturers to secure independent testing of equipment performance by nationally recognized certification agencies.
"Exaggerated performance specifications, including airflow and water removal, can lead to serious consequences," Bruders said in his letter. "The practice of overstating performance claims is a dark spot on the industry that needs to be addressed."
Dri-Eaz will publish third-party certification for all of its products beginning this year.
Bruders also called on the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification to set an official requirement that verified performance specifications be presented in certified education classes.
