IICRC Certification Explained
The IICRC is a certification and Standards Developing Organization (SDO) that is recognized internationally for establishing quality control criteria for inspection cleaning and restoration services, and European Restoration is IICRC certified.
WHAT IICRC CERTIFICATION MEANS TO YOU
IICRC certification is attained only through rigorous testing and adherence to exacting standards, and guarantees more than expertise in restoration.
IICRC companies are required to meet several service benchmarks. They must:
- Present accurate information to clients, and conduct themselves with honesty and integrity
- Make available a technician who has been formally trained and passed IICRC tests
- Provide continuing education for technicians
- Maintain liability insurance
This list is not exhaustive, and does not include the training required for IICRC certification, which is especially important when dealing with water damage. Certification ensures you’re receiving service that employs the best and latest techniques in the trade.
WHY IIRC CERTIFICATION MATTERS
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that we spend almost 90% of our time indoors, and indoor pollutants can have a poor effect on our lives.
This is especially true when water damage has occurred. Mold, deterioration of synthetic carpet and upholstery fibers, and airborne particulates are all cause for consideration when you’re restoring damaged property.
The European Restoration team is trained to assess this kind of damage in great detail, and to offer a safe and effective restoration solution.
HOW YOU KNOW EUROPEAN RESTORATION IS IIRC CERTIFIED
It is unlawful for companies to display the IICRC logo if they are not certified.
The IICRC is backed by industry professionals as well as insurance partners, and most insurers insist on using IICRC-certified companies because they know the work is insured.
If you’re not sure, we encourage you to check that the service you or your insurance company chooses is IICRC certified.
