For Consumers: When you see a IICRC logo, you can be confident that an IICRC-certified experienced, qualified professional is caring for your valuable property. IICRC Certified Firms employ technicians who, after study, field experience and passing comprehensive exams, have received IICRC certifications in specific cleaning, restoration and inspection categories such as upholstery, wood flooring, stone and tile flooring, carpet cleaning, odor removal, mold remediation, water damage, fire damage restoration and more. For Registrants: Certification helps you stay competitive and grow your business. Just as certified accountants, plumbers and mechanics project a higher level of competency in their fields, and just as members of the American Medical Association and American Bar Association set themselves apart through training, experience and comprehensive examination, IICRC certification helps to immediately identify the cleaning, restoration and inspection industry's most skilled and dedicated technicians and businesses. Keeping up with the latest techniques and technologies not only helps you stay competitive, it's also one of the best ways to motivate and retain employees. Education and training are key to a meaningful work experience; professional advancement is key to job satisfaction; and educated, well-trained, satisfied employees are the key to satisfied customers.
