IICRC begins drafting R800 Reference Guide for Carpet Inspection

January 13, 2010

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification is beginning to draft the R800 Reference Guide for Carpet Inspection.

“We’re looking forward to beginning work on the new reference guide,” said IICRC Standards Consultant Larry Cooper. “Along with our partners in the industry, we know that the IICRC R800 will provide a needed resource for professionals.”

The R800 Reference Guide Committee will be chaired by Bill Doan of Shaw Industries; vice-chair will be Lou Migliore of LGM and Associates Technical Flooring Services.

The IICRC is now looking for industry volunteers to participate on the committee, which will meet approximately two times per year. “As with each new standard or reference guide the IICRC drafts, we’re looking for professionals who are dedicated to moving this forward,” Doan said.
