New dimensional stone maintenance standard
A new standard on dimensional stone maintenance and restoration is being developed and the standard on professional upholstery cleaning is being revised by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification.
The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is developing a new standard on dimensional stone maintenance and restoration and revising the standard on professional upholstery cleaning. The institute has announced the formation of consensus bodies for the new BSR-IICRC S210 Standard and Reference Guide on Dimensional Stone Maintenance and Restoration and the revision of IICRC S300 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Upholstery Cleaning.
The new BSR-IICRC S210 standard will encompass the initial, routine, periodic and restorative maintenance methodologies for dimensional stone flooring and fabrication. The IICRC is currently accepting applications from interested members for the S210 consensus body and chapter committees. The IICRC is also currently accepting applications from interested members for the consensus body and chapter committees for the updated IICRC S300 standard for professional upholstery cleaning.
“As new materials and processes are introduced, we remain committed to ensuring the IICRC’s standards provide credible, up-to-date information,” comments Mili Washington, standards director of IICRC. “Through the development of the S210 standard, we are upholding our promise to the industry to establish an international standard of care and provide our registrants with a knowledgeable industry voice and resource.”
The IICRC is an international, American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited standard development organisation that certifies individuals in more than 20 categories within the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries. It represents more than 54,000 certified technicians in 22 countries. To know if a technician has received proper education and training, consumers should look for the Clean Trust patch and logo, the service mark of the IICRC.
