ANSI/IICRC S100 Standard and IICRC R100 Reference Guide for Professional Cleaning of Textile Floor Coverings
ANSI/IICRC S100 establishes minimum standards for professional on-location cleaning of installed textile floor coverings. In so doing, it acknowledges the critical role played by consumers in selecting and maintaining those floor coverings prior to the need for such professional cleaning. For this reason, the actual standards for cleaning are preceded by information on the importance of pre-cleaning maintenance, ways in which consumers may evaluate the qualification of professional cleaners, basic principles of cleaning, and the necessity for thorough pre-cleaning and post-cleaning inspections. Once these points are covered, standards for the application of the five common on-location cleaning methods (or variations thereof) are outlined. No attempt has been made to evaluate the strengths or weaknesses of individual cleaning methods or to compare or contrast one method with another.
The S100 Consensus Body Chair is Stephen Lewis, and Vice Chair is Norm Maia .
The Consensus Body is currently working on revising the 2015 S100 Standard.
