The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Seal of Approval

Carpet cleaning product, methods and equipment are improving all the time, but not all cleaning products clean equally well. CRI tested an assortment of carpet cleaning solutions and equipment and found a wide variance in how well these products work — and discovered that some even damage carpet.

The CRI Seal of Approval program identifies effective carpet cleaning solutions and equipment that clean carpet right the first time and protect a facility’s carpet investment. Not all products clean well enough to earn the Seal of Approval distinction, so look for the blue and green CRI Seal of Approval as proof that you are purchasing or using a quality product.

Only the best products can pass the CRI Seal of Approval testing and certification program. Products that pass these rigorous standards have proven cleaning effectiveness and a clear competitive advantage, as studies show that consumers are predisposed to buy a product with a certification like the CRI Seal of Approval.



The Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association (MFMA) Accreditation Program

The MFMA Accreditation Program is intended to improve installer’s competencies in the installation of MFMA maple sports flooring systems, and to provide architects, construction specifiers and end-users with information to make informed choices about the selection of qualified installers and installation companies.

MFMA accreditation is a voluntary process by which a non-governmental agency, such as MFMA, validates an individual’s qualifications and knowledge in a specific area of professional practice based on a set of pre-determined standards. In the case of hardwood maple sports flooring accreditation, the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association is validating your qualifications and knowledge as hardwood maple, beech and birch sports flooring installer.



National Wood Floor Association

The NWFA accreditation exists to promote the usage of wood flooring in residential, educational, and commercial environments and provide members with the education and training necessary for success. The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) is a not-for-profit trade association representing all segments of the hardwood flooring industry, including manufacturers, distributors, retailers, installers, importers/exporters, inspectors, and consultants.
