VANCOUVER, WA — The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) recently led a series of meetings with carpet industry partners, according to a press release.
Participants in the meetings included the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), Mohawk Flooring, Shaw Industries, Tandus Flooring and Professional Testing Laboratories (PTL), the release stated.
According to the release, the meetings were organized after IICRC Chairman Darrell Paulson met with carpet industry representatives at Surfaces in January.
"Both the IICRC and the carpet industry, including CRI, have gone through a lot of changes the past year or two," said IICRC board member John Downey.
"We''ve made a lot of changes to improve the IICRC, but haven''t always done a good job of communicating why the changes were made or how they are beneficial not only to us but to our partners. We decided that now would be a great time to meet in Dalton to get all questions answered and to chart a positive course forward. I think these meetings accomplished that goal," Downey added.
