IICRC Seeks Input on Three New StandardsOctober 29, 2019
The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is now accepting volunteers to serve on consensus bodies for the development of three new standards.
BSR/IICRC S230 Standard for Professional Inspection of Flooring Subfloors and Substrates will include both noninvasive and invasive (destructive) inspection of subfloors and substrates beneath carpet and hard-surface floor covering. For this standard, the IICRC is seeking volunteers who are carpet, concrete, or hard floor installers, inspectors, or manufacturers.
BSR/IICRC S410 Standard for Infection Control During Professional Cleaning and Maintenance of the Commercial Built Environment will provide a specific set of practical principles, methods, and processes to clean, sanitize, and evaluate the cleaning of the built environment where verifiable, hygienic cleaning is required. For this standard, the institute is looking for volunteers who perform cleaning of indoor environments affected by germs and pathogens.
BSR/IICRC S760 Standard for Professional Restoration of Structures and Items Damaged by Wildfire Smoke will provide a specific set of practical principles, methods, and processes to evaluate and restore wildfire- and smoke-damaged porous and nonporous structural and personal items. For this standard, the IICRC is seeking volunteers who perform cleaning or restoration of indoor and outdoor environments affected by particles that settle from wildfires that occur in nature.
IICRC is an ANSI-accredited standards-setting body for the flooring inspection, floor covering, and specialized fabric cleaning and disaster restoration industries. Organized in 1972, IICRC currently represents more than 5,700 certified firms and 54,000 certified technicians in 22 countries. For more information, visit www.iicrc.org.
