June 2014 Standards Update

BSR-IICRC S220 Standard on Hard Surface Floor Covering Inspection:

  • The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is now forming a consensus body for the development of a new BSR-IICRC S220 Standard on Hard Surface Floor Covering Inspection. The new BSR-IICRCS220 Standard will include inspection of hard surface floor coverings; including stone, marble, laminate, wood, ceramic and resilient. The document will establish a procedural standard for professionally inspecting hard surface floor coverings. For more information on submitting an application to participate on the BSR-IICRC S220 consensus body, please contact Mili Washington, IICRC standards director, at mili@iicrc.org.

 
IICRC Draft Standards Available for Public Review:

  • “BSR-IICRC S600 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Installation” is available for the second round of public review and comment as part of the 45-day public review period from June 13 to July 28. All comments must be submitted using a completed Comment Form at http://www.iicrc.org/standards/iicrc-s600/. The IICRC S600 Standard and Reference Guide will cover both Residential and Commercial Carpet Installations. This industry consensus document will give specific guidance for the proper, recommended procedures for installing various carpet products in different types of installations.

 

  • “BSR-IICRC S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration” will be available in late July for a third round of public review and comment. All comments will need to be submitted using a completed Comment Form at http://www.iicrc.org/standards/iicrc-s500/. IICRC S500 provides a specific set of practical standards for water damage restoration. It does not attempt to teach comprehensive water damage restoration procedures; rather, it provides the foundation for basic principles of proper restoration practices.


New ANSI/IICRC S800 Standard:

  • IICRC recently published the new “ANSI/IICRC S800 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Inspection of Textile Floorcoverings” (1st edition, 2014). This 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.
