IICRC Issues Revised Floor Covering Inspection Standard

July 27, 2021

IICRC logoThe Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has published a revised standard for textile floor covering inspection and cleaning.

The seventh edition of ANSI/IICRC S100 describes the procedures, methods, and systems to be followed when performing professional commercial and residential textile floor coverings (e.g., carpet and rugs) maintenance, and cleaning. This standard does not specifically address the protocols and procedures for restoration or remediation of contaminated textile floor coverings. No attempt is made to evaluate the strengths or weaknesses of individual cleaning methods, or to compare or contrast one method or system, equipment, or product, with another, the IICRC said in a press release.

“Special thanks to Vice Chair Norm Maia, our committee members, and all who volunteered their valuable time over the past three years,” said Stephen Lewis, IICRC standard chair. “The revised ANSI/IICRC 2021 S100 is full of updated information that will benefit all who choose to use it. The magic behind this revision is that our committee of industry-recognized professionals, with diverse training and technical backgrounds, were able to agree on the cleaning fundamentals of various textile floor covering cleaning systems used to maintain and clean carpets and rugs.”
