Instituteof Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification

Cleaning our carpets for a healthy home environment requires equipment and expertise beyond the scope of most homeowners. Professional cleaners not only clean for health, but can bring back an almost new appearance to a carpet. A truly professional carpet cleaning firm should be someone you trust. They are concerned about safety, working with care not to damage furniture. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification stands as an organization that assures quality, trustworthiness and comfort.
To better understand professional quality carpet cleaning, look at this!

Trust Your Carpet Cleaner?

Trust Your Carpet Cleaner? Are you about to get your carpets cleaned before a big holiday event?

How are you going to choose the service you will use? The one that sends the lowest priced coupon? A neighbor’s recommendation? The first one listed in your internet search?

How do you find technicians you can trust who will deliver an exceptional job?

There are thousands of companies that do carpet and upholstery cleaning, but only a small percentage are truly professionals who have invested their own time and money to be trained, and certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

Before hiring anyone:

 confirm they are trained by cleantrust, an IICRC program
 ask for credentials
 informally interview the company rep or technician
 obtain a written estimate of the work to be completed
 receive a written contract or invoice confirming the total price along with any statements or guarantees.

The non-profit IICRC is the only standards and certification institute in the world specifically dedicated to:

o writing procedural standards

o approving training

o education and certification for professional carpet cleaners, water and fire damage restoration specialists, and floor covering inspectors

o ensuring technicians meet and maintain the ethical business requirements set by the IICRC

o customer satisfaction before, during and after the job is done.

The IICRC believes that the best way to maintain a healthful home is schedule periodic visits from an experienced certified professional. For carpet and upholstery cleaning, maintenance of wood and tile floors and water damage only a certified technician will deliver the results you can trust.

Look for the cleantrust logo to verify IICRC certification.

A carpet can add beauty, acoustic properties and visual warmth to a home – why not hire an IICRC certified firm to treat it right?

Tune in on Friday, January 4th at 7:30 am (ET/PT) on Lifetime to see Rachael Adams from IICRC talk about what benefits a certified firm can bring. (please verify local listings)
