promote high standards and ethics; and to advance communication and technical proficiency within
the inspection, cleaning and disaster restoration service industries.

3. How does certification benefit consumers?

experts who will provide reasonable assurance that work will be completed in accordance with the
industry's "standard of care."

4. How many certified firms does IICRC have?
The IICRC currently has some 3,500 Certified Firms.

5. How do I know a company is Certified by the IICRC?
Every firm that has been approved and certified by the IICRC is added to the IICRC database.

The IICRC provides a consumer referral service to locate trained and certified cleaning and
restoration firms and technicians. Before hiring anyone: confirm that they are trained and certified in
the type of work to be performed and ask for credentials; informally interview the company
representative or technician; obtain a written estimate of the work to be completed, and receive a
written contract or invoice confirming the total price along with any statements or guarantees.
