I was honored to have recently received both my IICRC Water Restoration Technician and Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician Certifications. IICRC is an internationally recognized body that provides standards the the Cleaning and Restoration Industries. Having these certifications will assist me in providing greater expertise and insight into water and smoke mitigation efforts. When mitigation efforts are done improperly or incompletely they can lead to long term issues not covered by property insurance and a mistaken evaluation of the loss by the carrier’s adjuster.
I took the classes locally at Restoration Technical Institute in Reading, PA. RTI are great bunch of folks who operate a large restoration business and only last year got themselves certified as an IICRC training facility but put on a class that was informative and well-structured in a first-class environment.
