The National Carpet Cleaners Association believes in the importance of promoting best practice in all aspects of carpet cleaning.
With this in mind we have developed, along with BSI British Standards and with collaboration from industry experts, the professional document PAS 86: 2008 - Professional inspection, maintenance, cleaning and restoration of textile floor coverings - Code of Practice.
PAS86 is the only government recognised code of practice for professional carpet cleaning. When considering employing a professional carpet cleaner, consumers should ensure companies and technicians are committed to following PAS86 Code of Practice.
Serious carpet cleaners have already adopted the PAS as their official guide to professional carpet cleaning but the PAS is also relevant to government bodies, trading standards, the insurance industry, carpet manufacturers, consumers, retailers, training bodies and those involved in the management, cleaning and inspection of textile floor coverings.
The PAS86 is applicable to all types and styles of textile floor coverings within domestic and commercial environments.
