SOA cleaning solutions program certifies 200th product

Apr '08
CRI is proud to announce that it has now certified its 200th cleaning solution under the CRI Seal of Approval Program with the addition of two Sears cleaning solutions.

The trend of more and more solutions earning certification as word continues to spread that some carpet manufacturers have made a decision to tie carpet warranties to the use of CRI SOA- approved products.

Ultra Care Green Fiber Rinse, an in-tank solution, and Ultra Care Green Fiber Spot Remover joined the list of solutions to qualify, bringing the total number that has passed to exactly 200. Both products are manufactured by Sear Carpet & Upholstery Care which is headquartered in Lewis Center, OH.

Each product passed a series of stringent tests performed by an independent laboratory in order to make the list of cleaning solutions.

The tests for spot removers, pre-sprays and in-tank solutions include protocols for efficacy (removing stains), resoiling (whether the product attracts soil at an accelerated rate), pH (excessively acid or alkaline products can affect dyes and fibers), optical brighteners (can adversely affect color, appearance and performance) and colorfastness to light (residues on pile yarn can accelerate color change).
