Think about your day-to-day life and the types of services you schedule for yourself and your family. Whether it’s a hair appointment, a visit to the chiropractor, or a service for your car, going to a licensed professional will give you the confidence to trust their work. The same applies to our industry. Becoming IICRC-certified will give you the technical skills, qualifications, expertise, and confidence your customers expect so that you can do the job right - the first time.
Considered the gold standard of credentials in the cleaning and restoration industry, the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) is a professional certification coalition that — in addition to providing training — sets best-practice standards for the restoration, cleaning, and inspection industries. When a technician is IICRC-certified, it means that they've satisfied all of the core competencies necessary to be a true carpet cleaning, water damage restoration, and inspection professional.
Being IICRC certified reduces your risk of liability on the job. Restoration work is dangerous, both to your crew and your customers. Dealing with major water damage or black mold remediation without the proper IICRC training and certification can lead to serious injury and the potential for legal action. You can reduce that threat by making sure you and your crew are up-to-date on the latest standards and procedures. Carpet and upholstery cleaning pose less of a health risk, but the wrong chemical or cleaning method can cause permanent and expensive damage.
