The S600 ANSI standards document is once again being offered by the IICRC for public review. I have an issue with this for several reasons. First and foremost is the IICRC ! Who says the IICRC is in charge of who sees (or does not see) this set of INSTALLATION standards. Why is the carpet cleaner's organization trying to build a fence around the S600? "Oh, you want to see the standards for installation?...Please pay at this window" How much blood, sweat, and tears have carpet cleaners put into the perfection of carpet installation? (well that's how much they will probably stand behind any installer) Second is the other bodies involved in the construction of the document itself. Only 4 people with ANY installation experience were at the table when the standards for all installation were set forth. 4?!?!We couldn't get more than 4 guys to put 2 cents worth into the rule book? Third is the obvious use for the S600 is as a weapon to crush most installers in court. Why? Because most installers don't even know the rules of the game. The S600 is going to be a fine tuned weapon in the hands of insurance company lawyers. Sure it will get rid of Larry, Moe, and Curly first but there are a lot of descent installer who have quit already and to thin the herd even more could be disastrous. The mills already are saying there aren't enough certified installers out there now to make certified installation mandatory. Now they can continue to play the heads I win, tails you lose game they have been playing with installers for years. There are many organizations out there and if you are not part of any group of installation professionals now is the time to get in the game!! Get a rule book and get involved before it is too late!!
