What is an IICRC Certified Firm?
If you're wondering what an IICRC Certified Firm is, then you should know that it's more than just an "independent" organization. In fact, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the science and technology in inspection, cleaning and restoration.
The IICRC was established in 1972 by Ed York, but is managed by 15 industry leaders elected by the shareholders. The organization is known for a set of standards for conducting any inspection or cleaning job within the industry, as well as guidelines for setting up your firm as a certified business (or getting certified yourself).
Certified Firms are required to complete a rigorous training program developed by the leaders at the Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certification. After completing training, each firm must pass an exam that measures knowledge of proper cleaning techniques as well as business management skills. The firm must also demonstrate financial stability, high levels of technical experience and unmatched professionalism.
An IICRC Certification Means:
- You can trust your certified firm to do the job right.
- Your certified firm will meet or exceed all industry standards.
- Your certified firm will provide you with a high quality, professional service.
An IICRC Certified Firm is a restoration company or business that has been trained and tested, has documented procedures, and offers qualified personnel, insurance and appropriate equipment, tools and/or vehicles. The certification process is a way to ensure that the firm you hire has the knowledge and experience necessary to perform the work. Certification ensures that your restoration service provider has proper equipment, tools and vehicles for performing their job.
