May 21, 2009
WESTERVILLE, OH — The International Executive Housekeepers Association (IEHA) will conduct a pilot with a cross-section of its in-house and outsource cleaning operations members who support the current Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Seal of Approval (SOA) program and wish to evaluate carpet-cleaning instruction and knowledge assessment as an enhancement to the current criteria, according to a press release.
IEHA will select members from various facility segments, including health care, hospitality, educational institutions and unique venues such as casinos to become educated in CRI-recommended carpet cleaning methods, the release stated.
Shaw Industries Group Inc. will provide IEHA access to its online maintenance and cleaning (MAC) learning management system (LMS) for information on the following carpet cleaning topics: Why clean and maintain; preventive maintenance; reactive maintenance; daily maintenance; interim maintenance; and extraction/deep cleaning, the release noted.
IEHA has initially selected 12 IEHA-related facilities to participate in the SOA training program and will be sharing updates on the pilot program once launched in June 2009, the release added.
