What does IICRC-certified mean?

SERVPRO often talks about certifications because we are proud of all our professional, knowledgeable, and educated restoration technicians. We sometimes get asked what IICRC certification is and what it means to us.

  • IICRC is an acronym for Institute of Inspection, Cleaning & Restoration Certification
  • The mission of the IICRC is to ‘promote an international standard of care that establishes and maintains the health, safety, and welfare of the built environment.’ (ref. IICRC.org)
  • Each technician undergoes IICRC course training to stay abreast of the latest technologies and methodologies of cleaning.
  • Technicians must take part in the full course, take the written exam, and document skills in specific categories to receive certification.

This means to SERVPRO that we have the cream of the crop in terms of technicians to handle fire, water, mold, and unique restoration/reconstruction projects.

How our Fire Damage Restoration Process Works

Once the first responders finish putting out the fire and we get the green light to enter your property, we begin the inspection and assessment. Your property likely suffered from charring, smoke, and water damage from water and chemicals used to fight the fire. The steps we take for typical fire calls include:

  • Emergency contact with our customer care team to gather information about the fire. This allows us to round up the correct number of personnel and the equipment we will need to handle the restoration.
  • The assessment and inspection include looking at the extent of the damage, including charring, soot, and smoke.
  • Board-up and roof tarping get done to protect your interior while restoration occurs.
  • If there is standing water or moisture present, we begin extractions and drying with the help of air movers and dehumidification equipment.
  • Walls, ceilings, and other surfaces undergo soot and smoke residue removal with specialized equipment and techniques.
  • All restorable items get cleaned; we sanitize all surfaces throughout your structure and deodorization to eliminate contaminants and foul odors.
  • The final step is restoration and reconstruction performed by trusted area contractors and vendors to replace drywall, install new carpet, and handle all other necessary repairs to make it “Like it never even happened.”
