IICRC certification badge SERVPRO of Happy Valley is a IICRC Certified Firm!

The IICRC (The International Institute of Cleaning and Restoration Certification) is a non-profit organization that sets standards for the cleaning and restoration industry. The purpose of these standards is to ensure that professionals in the field are properly trained and certified. IICRC certification has been proven to boost confidence among consumers, increase sales revenue for businesses, provide better service to clients and help professionals in their restoration careers. 

What is an IICRC Certification?

A certificate issued by the IICRC indicates that you have received adequate training through rigorous examination procedures designed to ensure that only those individuals who meet IICRC standards may receive these credentials. Upon completion of this process, which involves passing written tests and demonstrating practical skills during hands-on assessments, you receive a certificate proclaiming your competency. The certificate shows a level of certification in a specific restoration field or all areas covered by IICRC standards—depending on which level was chosen during registration for training course(s). 

How do IICRC Certifications Work?

The IICRC has made the process of obtaining certification as easy as possible for both industry professionals and students alike. First, you must attend a two-day training course at an approved location or online. You can choose from one of four levels of certification: Certified Water Damage Restoration Technician (Water), Certified Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technician (Fire), Certified Mold Remediation Technician (Mold), and Certified Asbestos Abatement Supervisor/Project Designer (AQP). Each level of certification requires that candidates pass a rigorous written examination covering the principles, methods, and practices in their field of expertise.

The Value of Standards and Certifications for Consumers

Many consumers and clients appreciate certifications and trained employees. They value the standards of any company they work with, especially a company that works to restore or reconstruct their homes after a disaster. That is why our team at SERVPRO of Happy Valley is IICRC certified across the board. 

If you’re considering hiring a company for your cleaning needs, it’s important to know that there are standards and certifications available. IICRC certifications are some of the most respected in the industry, and we at SERVPRO of Happy Valley are proud to show our IICRC Certification badge.
