The Goal of CRI

Now that we've discussed the testing program for CRI carpet extractor certification and its benefits, let's wrap up this blog post series by taking a look at the goal of CRI.

Established in 1991, CRI is a national carpet and rug industry trade organization headquartered in Dalton, Georgia. CRI counts as its members over 90 percent of all carpet producers and raw materials suppliers in the United States. In 2000, CRI established a Green Label vacuum certification program in response to an industry need for a common standard in environmental certification. CRI views standardization and certification as an important part of its mission, and certifies carpets, cushions and adhesives in addition to vacuums and extractors.

When evaluating carpet extractors, consider products that bear the CRI Seal of Approval. The environmental and cleaning performance of CRI-tested and approved extractors can help you save time and labor costs, increase the life of flooring and improve a facility’s indoor air quality.

    A pesar de que este tipo de certificaciones todavía no son muy conocidas en México y Centro América, es nuestra labor promover y explicar la importancia de esta certificación tanto en aspiradoras como en extractores de alfombras

    A pesar de que esta certificación todavía no es muy conocida en países como México y Centro América, es nuestra responsabilidad que los usuarios o distribuidores la conozcan. Siempre será más económico invertir en equipos (aspiradoras y extractores de alfombra) certificados que en alfombras nuevas.
