New Carpet Inspection Standard Published

Vancouver, WA, Feb. 7, 2014 -- The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification said that a new ANSI/IICRC S800 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Inspection of Textile Floorcoverings has been published.

The standard defines basic operational procedures and techniques for inspecting/evaluating: carpet types, characteristics and conditions; specification; installation procedures; and post-installation maintenance and cleaning.

This enables professional inspectors to determine appropriate procedures for inspecting textile floor coverings.

The standard is not written to teach detailed inspection procedures. It was created for use primarily by professional inspectors, and secondarily for carpet manufacturers, product suppliers, building contractors, architects, specifiers, designers, distributors, flooring retailers, end-users, facility managers, institutions and others involved in the textile flooring inspection industry.
