The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, (IICRC) has served as the Industry Guardian for the cleaning, inspection and restoration industry for more than 30 years. As a non-profit certification organization, the IICRC ensures that you have access to trusted and trained cleaning professionals by establishing and monitoring certification programs and standards for these industries.
To qualify for IICRC—Certified Firm status, businesses must demonstrate proof of insurance, maintain a written customer complaint policy with documented follow-up and provide on going education and training leading to certification for all technicians. IICRC Certified firms are also required to abide by the IICRC Code of Ethics.
