Cleaning Standards

CRI 204/205 Carpet Maintenance and Cleaning Standards

Proper cleaning is paramount to the life and appearance of carpet whether you are in a home, office, or commercial facility. The CRI 204 and 205 Commercial and Residential Standards for Maintenance and Cleaning were created to outline the proper protocols for maintaining carpet in any and all environments.

The 204 and 205 standards were developed by manufacturer representatives with technical backgrounds along with input from the cleaning industry to form the most comprehensive guide for commercial and residential cleaning. These standards are also the only carpet cleaning standards created and supported by the industry.

CRI offers the standards for viewing online and as a free download for tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices.
