VANCOUVER, WA — The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a research project to test the effectiveness of air filtration devices, according to a press release.
The IICRC S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration, which contains practical standards for water damage restoration, currently includes language allowing the use of air filtration devices during the drying and mitigation process, the release noted.
To ensure IICRC standards reflect the most recent reliable industry data, the IICRC standards committee wants technical information regarding the efficiency of air filtration devices as a particulate collection device, the release stated.
Proposals are due July 9, 2010, by 5 p.m. Pacific time and should be submitted to Tom Hill, executive administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
