IICRC - Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification

Eddie Crouthers and the team at Complete Restoration, Inc. have completed certificaton with the IICRC.

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, more commonly known as the IICRC, is a certification and standard-setting non-profit organization for the inspection, cleaning, and restoration industries. Present in more than 25 countries worldwide, the IICRC has a mission to identify and promote an international standard of care that establishes and maintains the health, safety, and welfare of the built environment. As an American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited standard-development organization (SDO), the IICRC works with international trade associations such as the International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA) and the Restoration Industry Association(RIA) to develop consensus-based standards.

As a professional certification organization, the IICRC does not have members but instead has registered technicians or "registrants." The IICRC does not operate certification schools but instead approves schools and instructors to teach and administer its certification programs.

Cleantrust, a program created by the IICRC, helps consumers identify businesses with high ethical standards and technical proficiency. The cleantrust logo was designed to help promote the IICRC's mission and certification programs and to help broaden the reach of the institute. Currently, the IICRC has more than 140 approved instructors and 70 approved schools offering cleantrust certification. Certification is based upon successful completion of a course in which curriculum follows the standards for that category as well as a passing grade on a standardized exam. Once certified, IICRC registrants must earn continuing education credits (CECs) to maintain their certification.

Lead-Safe Certified Firm - certification to conduct lead-based paint renovation, repair and painting activities

Federal law requires all renovation, repair, and painting firms (including sole proprietorships) working in housing, or facilities where children are routinely present, built before 1978, to be certified. In addition to EPA's Renovation, Repair and Painting regulations, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires compliance with its Lead Safe Housing Rule in target housing receiving HUD assistance. Becoming Lead-Safe Certified isn't just the right thing to do for the safety of your workers and customers, it's also good for business. EPA recommends that consumers hire only certified contractors for renovations in homes and child-occupied facilities built before 1978.
