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 Standard describes the procedures, methods, and systems to be followed when inspecting light commercial and residential textile floor coverings and related products (e.g., carpet, cushion). Professional carpet inspection consists of processes and procedures that are described in this Standard. This Standard does not specifically address the protocols and procedures for installing textile floor coverings. Users of this Standard should refer to the latest edition of IICRC S100, Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Cleaning.
