The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, more commonly known as the IICRC, is a certification and standard-setting non-profit organization for the inspection, cleaning, and restoration industries. The mission of the IICRC is to establish and advance globally recognized standards and certifications for the inspection, cleaning, restoration, and installation industries. The IICRC provides professional work standards, continuous training, and education to service professionals globally. This training ranges from technical aspects such as, drying water damaged walls or remediating mold damage, to the wider aspects of the restoration business. A proficient understanding of each area is vital to perform the most efficient ways of restoring a flooded room. Technicians are required to take multiple training courses and seminars every year to stay updated on the new equipment and to learn new methods.
Why is IICRC important?
As consumers we always want to find companies we can trust. We want to find companies that are qualified for the job, as well as have morals and values, The IICRC finds these companies for you. Unlike most trades, disaster restoration does not require professional training. This means anyone and everyone can call themselves a "professional." This is why the IICRC is important, it keeps people accountable and lets consumers know who the real professional are.
