August 2014 Standards Update

IICRC Draft Standards Available for Public Review:

  • BSR-IICRC S500 Draft Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration is now available for a third round of public review and comment as part of a 30-day public review period through Aug. 31, 2014. ANSI/IICRC S500 provides a specific set of practical and procedural standards for water damage restoration. It does not provide a specific protocol for all water damage restoration projects; rather, it outlines the foundation for basic principles of proper restoration practices. ANSI/IICRC S500 does not include exhaustive performance characteristics or standards for the manufacture or installation of structural components, materials and contents (personal property).


  • BSR-IICRC S100 Standard for Professional Textile Floorcovering Cleaning Restoration is now available for a second round of public review and comment as part of a 30-day public review period through Aug. 31, 2014. BSR-IICRC S100 describes the procedures, methods and systems to be followed when performing professional commercial and residential textile floor covering (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 contract one method with another.
