Many industries have certification processes for their workers. In fact, certification can often be a determining factor to help define good quality from bad. Such certifications provide documentation and verification that a person received knowledge and training to perform a certain task. When you, a company, or a contractor request a service, it gives you confidence that the person assigned knows what they are doing and how to do it right.
When it comes to carpet cleaning, one of the best certification processes out there is the IICRC. That stands for the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification. Originally known as the International Institute of Carpet Upholstery Cleaning, Inc., they are a non-profit organization that was founded in 1972. The IICRC has more than 60,000 certified technicians listed and more than 6,000 certified firms around the world.
The mission of the IICRC is to “establish and advance globally recognized standards and certifications for the inspection, restoration and installation industries”. They encourage all their certified members to actively continue the mastery of their industry with conventions, workshops, examinations, specialized training, and education activities.
How We Factor In
Preferred Carpet Cleaning acquires and maintains IICRC certifications in all the services that we offer, whether residential or commercial. Since the cleaning industry is not government regulated, it’s important to seek out the best authority when it comes to qualification – and that means the IICRC. The acquired skills and training are passed on to newer members of our team like a trade master guides an apprentice or journeyman. That training continues until the newer members also receive certification.
At Preferred Carpet Care, we insist that all of our work meets or exceeds the industry standards for carpet cleaning. That also includes a detailed understanding of requirements from carpet manufacturers, as well as the guidelines listed from the IICRC. This not only helps protect the health and investments of our clients but also ensures your carpet will look the best it possibly can for its lifetime.
If you would like to know more about the IICRC, the specific certifications we hold, or when we can come by and professionally clean your carpets, please give us a call at 530-243-8400 or fill out our convenient form here on our website. We’d love to demonstrate the benefits of our 50 years of experience backed by our IICRC training and certifications.
