About the IICRC

IICRC stands for the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification. The Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting and improving the cleaning and restoration industry, and is known across the world as the standard-bearer for professional cleaning and restoration service. Originally called the International Institute of Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Inc., or IICUC, this non-profit was first founded in 1972. Since then, it has since evolved into a global entity, with over 60,000 active members and 6,000 certified businesses in multiple countries.

To become an IICRC-certified technician, you must successfully complete multiple rigorous training courses and be able to pass an exam showing you are up to the organization’s standard-setting requirements. As an IICRC-certified technician, you are expected to uphold the Institute’s principle values of respect, responsibility, integrity, excellence, and expertise in every service you provide. As a consumer, seeing IICRC-certification means you are receiving the highest possible level of cleaning and restoration work, backed by an organization dedicated to raising the bar for customers and technicians worldwide.
