Why Carpet Restoration Needs To Be Performed
Carpet cleaning and restoration is the only way to keep the flooring looking and feeling good. It’s also essential to maintaining air quality in the building, as badly soiled and wet flooring can allow mold and other microbes to take root. However, fixing textiles takes a wide variety of skills, and the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) can help a technician achieve these skills. Even better, the IICRC’s courses are located all over the world, and a technician will never have to travel far to get to one.
Over time, flooring will pick up a staggering amount of soil, and the only way to truly get rid of it is with carpet cleaning and restoration. If, however, the flooring has gone a long time without maintenance, there may be no saving it with treatment, and repair will be needed instead. The IICRC offers a number of courses that can help a technician in nearly any situation. Courses cover basic carpet cleaning, to reinstalling badly damaged areas of carpeting, to repairing color, to removing odors, to reversing fire or water damage.
Most of the IICRC’s courses only take a few days to complete, and if the student passes the skills test, they will be eligible to become a registrant through the organization. Upon registration, a technician can learn advanced repair and treatment concepts through the IICRC’s continuing education courses online. It’s a wealth of information that can help a professional quickly integrate additional techniques into their arsenal, which will be more attractive to potential clientele with damaged carpeting.
