AFS Janitorial Earns Distinction as a Carpet and Rug Institute Seal of Approval Service Provider

Tampa, FL – August 22nd, 2013AFS Janitorial has been recognized by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) as a Seal of Approval Service Provider.  The Seal identifies cleaning companies that distinguish themselves by committing to a high standard of service and customer satisfaction. The CRI Seal of Approval program tests and certifies superior performing carpet cleaning solutions, vacuums, deep cleaning extractors and deep cleaning systems.  Companies certified as Seal of Approval Service Providers agree to use only Seal of Approval products and equipment and comply with a customer-focused “code of conduct.”

"Customer can feel confident about doing business with companies that have earned the Seal of Approval,” said Werner Braun, CRI president. “CRI is proud to recognize cleaning firms that use superior products and recognize the need for quality service.”


"The Seal of Approval Service Provider status is a signal to our customers that we care to use only the best cleaning products.  Matching the right cleaning method with the right product helps retain the life and beauty of a carpet," said Bryson Raver, Director of Operations. The Seal of Approval Service Provider code of conduct requires certified service providers to uphold a high standard of accountability, responsibility and customer-oriented service. It also has provisions for carpet manufacturers and product manufacturers that include honoring warranties and providing product usage and cleaning and maintenance information for consumers.

CRI recommends that consumers have their carpets professionally deep cleaned every one to two years, depending on foot traffic.  Additionally, some major carpet manufactures have specified use of Seal of Approval cleaning products in their warranties.
