What is IICRC?
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 broader, more comprehensive aspects of the restoration business. A proficient, thorough 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 each year to keep abreast of new equipment and to learn new methods.
