What Is The IICRC?
What Is an IICRC Instructor?
The main body that oversees the restoration industry is the Institution of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, or the IICRC. It’s got a long name, but when looking for a group of specialists with carpet cleaning certification, the IICRC seal of approval is shorthand for “expert”. This institute and its instructors are the ones to go to when trying to track down the most reputable courses and represents the main body of knowledge in the country. The IICRC provides education resources to consumers, classes to help companies in the industry improve their work, and a contact database useful for finding a recommended outfit to hire.

Being an IICRC-certified instructor requires more than just taking a few classes and passing a few tests.
