In past articles, we have referenced the IICRC. What exactly is it? Within most industries and professions, there are ways of recognizing professional work standards and providing continuing education including fire & water damage mitigation. Consumers value safety, integrity of work, excellence, and professional work standards. For example, the airline industry has developed certifications and continuing education courses to certify and educate pilots.
Cleaning & Remediation Industry-Wide Standards
Within the cleaning and remediation industry, there is also a need for industry-wide standards of safety, professionalism, and recognized work practices. The IICRC (more formally known as the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration, Certification) has arisen to become an independent, non-profit certification body that serves to develop a “standard of care” in which to train and certify technicians within the inspection, cleaning, and restoration industries.
Founded in 1972, the IICRC has become an internationally recognized organization, and works to approve instructors and schools to teach their developed training programs and industry standards. Both individual technicians and contracting firms can become certified in areas such as:
- Carpet Cleaning
- Carpet Color Repair
- Carpet Inspection
- Carpet Repair and Reinstallation
- Commercial Carpet Cleaning
- Fire and Smoke Restoration
- Hard Surface Cleaning
- Hard Surface Inspection
