What is IICRC and Why is it Important in the Carpet Cleaning Industry?

When choosing a carpet cleaning company to clean the carpet in your home, it’s very important to make sure the technicians are IICRC certified. You may not know what IICRC is and why it’s important in the carpet and rug cleaning industry. Here’s some information for you:

IICRC stands for Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification. When a carpet cleaning technician is IICRC certified, he/she will be equipped with the most updated knowledge and skills to perform the best possible cleaning. Their training is extensive and provides them with the ability to understand how to handle different fabrics, textiles, fibers, soiling issues, and chemicals. Certified firms also use the best available equipment to remove even the most embedded soils deep within the flooring. To put it simply, IICRC technicians are the best of the best in the industry.

It is practically impossible to mimic IICRC professional carpet cleaning with a do-it-yourself carper cleaner that you can rent. Home cleaners are not as powerful or effective as professional IICRC certified equipment. Also, cleaning your carpet yourself is not as easy as it may seem. If you don’t select the proper amount/type of detergent appropriate for the type of carpet you have you could potentially make stains worse, discolor your carpet, use too much water which causes improper drying and mold, or ruin your carpet altogether.

If you’d like to keep the lifespan of your carpet as long as possible and maintain it the correct way, make sure to book your regular carpet cleaning with an IICRC certified company! Ayoub Carpet Service is proud to say that all of our technicians are certified through IICRC and have been working directly for us with us for many years.
