NCCA introduces code of practice for carpet cleaners
Feb '09
The National Carpet Cleaners Association (stand G56) will officially launch the PAS 86 Code of Practice (Publicly Available Specification) at the Cleaning Show this year.

The new code of practice which has been developed by the NCCA and BSI British Standards, in association with a range of industry experts is set to become an industry standard publication for carpet cleaning technicians.

The PAS covers the professional inspection, maintenance, cleaning and restoration of textile floor coverings and is in fact the ONLY code of practice available for these trades.

The new code of practice will not only help raise standards within the trade but will also help those that follow the stated cleaning standards to win more business and stay one step ahead of the competition. Customers both residential and commercial will be able to confidently select a contractor working to the PAS 86 code of practice, safe in the knowledge that a quality service will be delivered.

Commenting on the PAS 86 June Frankum, NCCA president said:"This code of practice sets the standards for our cleaning businesses as well as being a prominent marketing tool in these recessionary times. The PAS will be reviewed at intervals not exceeding two years, and any amendments arising from the review will be published as an amended PAS."

The NCCA intends to create mass awareness of the new code and has appointed a PR professional to undertake a planned PR campaign. As a result, in the near future businesses and residential customers alike will only consider professionals who work to PAS 86.

The PAS 86 is already available for purchase direct from the NCCA.

NCCA directors and staff's will be on hand throughout the show (stand G56) to answer any queries whether about the PAS86, the association's work, membership benefits or its specialist training courses.

The National Carpet Cleaners Association is the only nationally recognised trade association dedicated to the cleaning of carpets and soft furnishings.
