What does hiring an “IICRC Certified Carpet Cleaner” mean to you?

It seems many consumers are not aware of the benefit of hiring a carpet cleaner who is certified by the IICRC, so I thought it would be a good idea to explain the benefits.

What Does the IICRC Stand For?

The IICRC is short for The Institute of Inspection Cleaning Restoration and Certification. The IICRC is serious about their training standards and only hires instructors who have been in the industry for many years.

Why is Certification Important?

A certified cleaner is someone who is dedicated to using cleaning methods set forth by fiber manufacturers and the carpet cleaning industry. Using proper cleaning methods provides benefits, including protecting your investment in your furnishings, helping to eliminate rapid re-soiling, protecting manufacturer warranties, and providing value.

What is Involved in Becoming Certified?

To become certified the cleaner must study in a classroom environment and pass written examination on the topics covered to be certified.


Some covered topics are:

  • pH factors involved in soil removal
  • Proper vacuuming techniques
  • Fiber composition & manufacturing methods
  • Types of soil
  • Proper equipment handling
  • Safety & professionalism standards
  • And other information
