Shaw mandates use of IICRC-certified firms for maintenance

During the Connection Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, Sept. 22-25, Shaw Industries Technical Director Carey Mitchell announced a new company-wide mandate allowing the use of only those firms certified by the IICRC to service carpets covered by their warranties. "Shaw's mandate is a step in the right direction for the industry as well as consumers," IICRC President Carey Vermeulen said.

The new mandate will only apply to the residential market. The new policy will be effective Jan. 1, 2008, giving qualified businesses ample time to apply for IICRC Certified Firm status.
