S800

ANSI/IICRC S800 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Inspection of Textile Floorcovering

Description

The ANSI/IICRC S800: 2014 includes inspection of textile floor covering, including carpet and rugs. The S800 establishes a procedural standard and reference guide for professionally inspecting textile floor coverings. The standard defines basic operational procedures and techniques for inspecting/evaluating: carpet types, characteristics, and conditions; specification; installation procedures; and post-installation maintenance and cleaning. This enables professional inspectors to determine appropriate procedures for inspecting textile floor coverings. S800 is not written to teach detailed inspection procedures; numerous manuals, videotapes, workshops, and seminars are available to teach comprehensive textile floor covering inspection procedures. This standard was created for use primarily by professional inspectors and secondarily for carpet manufacturers, product suppliers, building contractors, architects, specifiers, designers, distributors, flooring retailers, end-users, facility managers, institutions, and others involved in the textile flooring inspection industry.

  • Status Update

The new S800 Consensus Body has been formed and has begun work on revising the 2014 standard.

Part of this revision will include separating the Standard from the Reference Guide.
