The IICRC Technical Journal February 2014 Newsletter

The IICRC Journal is Launched

The IICRC Journal of Cleaning, Restoration & InspectionThe much anticipated inaugural issue of The Journal of Cleaning, Restoration & Inspection (The Journal) is complete and is being readied for distribution. The first issue features four peer-reviewed articles.

The first, written by Jerry Blaylock, examines the role of vapor pressure and enthalpy in drying water-damaged wood-based materials. The second article unveils the just-completed ANSI/IICRC S800 inspection standard. Co-written by Bill Doan and Lew Migliore, the chair and co-chair, respectively, of the Consensus Body, it includes an explanation of the standard-writing process as well as excerpts from the standard. Roy Reichow wrote the third article, an examination of hardwood floor cleaning and restoration in residential settings. Finally, J.R. Webster, PhD writes about the performance characteristics of synthetic carpet fibers from the perspective of a polymer chemist.

The Journal is a new benefit for IICRC Certified Firms, master cleaners and restorers, inspectors and instructors and schools, all of whom will receive free print copies of The Journal. In addition, all current registrants of the Institute will have free access to the electronic version.

The Journal is edited by John Downey, the founder and former editor of Cleanfax, and is published under contract to the Institute by the orangetap division of BNP Media.
