How To Find The Best Carpet Cleaning

There is a world of difference between the average technician and the best carpet cleaning professionals in the industry. There is a surprising amount of complexity involved in treating textiles, and the wrong approach can do much more harm than good. It is, therefore, important that a homeowner selects an experienced and educated professional when they need this type of treatment. The surest way to locate such a technician is by looking for certified companies that have had technicians who have received certification through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). The IICRC is the most respected training organization in the industry, and its registrants have access to a wealth of knowledge and professional contacts.

How does the IICRC’s courses train professionals to offer the best carpet cleaning service available?

The IICRC has been around for decades, and its current purpose is much the same as it was when the institute began. The IICRC’s scope has changed, of course, but training industry professionals in the most efficient practices is still the primary reason for the IICRC’s existence. And this isn’t just confined to textile treatment professionals, either. The IICRC can also help technicians improve their skills in carpet inspection, repair, installation, color restoration, fire and water damage restoration and other disciplines.

The IICRC’s textile treatment course, though, is still its most important and most popular class. In effect, it is as close to a foundational course that the IICRC has, and most of the technicians certified through the IICRC will take it.

Referred to as the Carpet Cleaning Technician (CCT) course, the IICRC’s class is two days, for a total of 14 hours of instruction. The CCT covers a range of fundamental concepts, including fiber and yarn compositions, assessing textile construction and style, and reviewing the soiling conditions that the technician is likely to face on the job. With CCT certification and some on the job experience, a technician will be ready for nearly any scenario they will face.

This is why IICRC-certified professionals offer the best carpet cleaning service available. An IICRC registrant knows what the most effective technologies and methods are in any situation. And registrants are taught the five pillars approach, which teaches students how to suspend and remove soil efficiently, as well as how to groom and dry carpeting as well. With the five pillars approach, detailed knowledge of the fundamentals, and thorough instruction materials, IICRC trained professionals are prepared for most every situation.

Certified technicians also have access to hundreds of industry contacts and are invited to several industry events throughout the year. With professional contacts, conventions, and other events, a technician can learn a great deal in a short period of time, elevating them to the ranks of the most talented professionals in the industry.
