BRAVO Carpet Cleaning & Care, is honored to now be a “Seal of Approval Service Provider (SOA)” with “CRI” (The Carpet And Rug Institute).
At minimum to achieve this honor, a “SOA” must utilize “Seal of Approval” products, such as “CRI” Certified vacuums, cleaning equipment, cleaning solutions and etc. In fact, our hot water/steam extractor carries the “Gold Certified” Seal from “CRI”.
Most, if not all carpet/fiber & area rug manufactures strongly advise their consumers to utilize only professional carpet and area rug cleaning companies that are “SOA” with “CRI”, as well as being Certified with “IICRC” (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification).
In fact, most if not all of these manufactures state in their warranties that cleaning, as well as on-going cleaning services should be performed by the same such above type stated “professional” cleaning company.
If a consumer elects to hire a “non-SOA” and/or IICRC company to clean their carpet and/or area rug while they are under warranty for example, OR decides to do the cleaning themselves – the consumer runs the risk of voiding their warranty if “CRI” approved cleaning products and equipment are not used, and properly executed.
“Hiring Seal of Approval service providers is the best way to ensure that your carpet is being cleaned with quality products. Not all carpet cleaning products clean equally well and some may even damage carpet fibers. Using Seal of Approval service providers also is the best way to make sure your residential or commercial carpet warranties are being met since many major carpet manufacturers require or strongly recommend the use of Seal of Approval product.” (CRI)
