The National Flood School stocks relevant industry standards and publications relating to our industry. Also available are some of the more difficult to source essential specialist tools and products needed by restoration technicians.
The S100 provides the minimum standards for professional professional carpet cleaning.
Prior to outlining these standards, the S100 provides information for both professional cleaners and the consumer on the importance of pre-cleaning maintenance, basic principles of cleaning and the need for thorough pre-cleaning and post-cleaning inspections. Furthermore, the standards required for the five common on-location cleaning methods (or variations thereof) are outlined, although no performance comparison is made.

The S300 is a procedural standard based upon reliable principles, full research and practical experience. This standard has been written in consultation with tradespersons; cleaning chemical and equipment formulators and manufacturers, upholstery and furniture manufacturers, international, national and regional trade associations, organisations serving the professional cleaning industry, both independent and franchise, cleaning industry training schools, cleaning service companies, and others with specialised experience.
The IICRC S300 provides a specific set of practical standards for upholstery cleaning. It does not attempt to teach comprehensive upholstery cleaning procedures, rather, it provides the foundational principle for proper cleaning practice.
The IICRC Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration (ANSI/IICRC S500-2006) is a procedural standard. It is based on reliable restoration principles, research and practical experience. In addition, there has been extensive consultation and information obtained from numerous sources. These sources include, but are not necessarily limited to, the scientific community, the international, national and regional trade associations serving the professional disaster restoration industry, chemical formulators and equipment manufacturers, cleaning and restoration training schools, restoration service companies, the insurance industry, allied trades persons and others with specialized experience. It is subject to further revision as developments occur in technology, testing and processing procedures.
The Third Edition of the ANSI/IICRC S500-2006 Standard and Reference Guide has been completely updated and rewritten with the best information and knowledge of the time. Additional Chapters and Sections have been added to the S500 that have not been included previously. These areas include: Building and Material Science, Psychrometry by Definition, Psychrometry and the Science of Drying, Limitations Complexities Complications and Conflicts, Structural Restoration, HVAC, Contents Evaluation Restoration and Remediation, and Large or Catastrophic Restoration. Also, note that Carpet Disengagement and Reinstallation has been moved back into the Appendix of the document.
The ANSI/IICRC S500-2006 provides a specific set of practical standards for water damage restoration. It does not attempt to teach comprehensive water damage restoration procedures; rather it provides the foundation for basic principles of proper restoration practices. ANSI/IICRC S500-2006 does not attempt to include exhaustive performance characteristics or standards for the manufacture or installation of structural components, materials and contents (personal property).
The ANSI/IICRC S500-2006 Standard and Reference Guide is presented using a two-part format: the standard itself and a supplementary reference guide. The procedural standard is featured in this first section, supported by the reference guide in the second section. The intent is to use the principles outlined in the reference guide as a tool to better understand and apply the standard itself. However, the reference guide is not considered part of this standard.
The S520 is a procedural standard and reference guide for the remediation of mould damaged structures and contents. The S520 is based on reliable remediation and restoration principles, research and practical experience, and attempts to combine essential academic principles with practical elements of water damage restoration for technicians facing “real-life” mould remediation challenges.
The S520 is written for use by those involved in the mould remediation industry, and is the result of collaboration among microbiologists and other scientists, public health professionals, industrial hygienists, remediation contractors, restoration service companies, cleaning and restoration training schools, trade associations that service the professional restoration industry, allied trade-persons, and others with related professional and practical experience.
