The most important fact of carpet cleaning is removing and getting rid of accrued or loose dirt. The
elimination of loose dirt or what we call dry soil, improves your indoor air quality, prolongs carpet life, and aids to perseveration of your carpet. Upkeep and consistent carpet maintenance is a great way to make sure you get the most from your carpet, and one of the best things you can do is get yourself the right tools for the job. That includes a great vacuum.
For vacuum machines of all kinds, the Carpet and Rug Institute, CRI, has established a Green Label air quality testing plan. The CRI established the performance protocol with the objective of measuring indoor air quality, and making sure carpet is not contributing to poor air quality.
The Green Label program aids in recognizing vacuum cleaners that meet several types of criteria:
1. Remove dirt.
2. Keep dust from the air by keeping it in the filtration bag and vacuum.
3. Doesn't harm the carpet and aids in keeping the carpet looking great.
The soil removal procedure requires that the vacuum cleaner to eliminate a specified quantity of soil
from the carpet.
The protocol for dust dictates the full amount of dust particles that are allowed into the surrounding air by the action of the roll brush, through the filtration bag, or any air leaks that come from the vacuum. With this test, the vacuum cleaner shouldn’t release more than 100 micrograms of dust per cubic meter of air.
The testing protocol for carpet appearance requires that the vacuum cleaner not adversely affect the look, the feel or weaken or erode the durability of the carpet.
When a vacuum satisfies all the above conditions the vacuum can proudly display
the official sticker of the CRI Green Label on its side. With the CRI tests, canister, vacuum parts, and upright vacuums are tested as well. Next time someone asks "How to Pick the Best Vacuum" you'll be able to tell them.
