How do Restoration Companies Qualify for IICRC Certified Firm Status?:
There are several steps that restoration companies must take to qualify for IICRC-Certified status, to prove that they are both trustworthy and reliable. Those include:
Proof of insurance.
- For all businesses, insurance is a necessary part of the operation to ensure that the customer, property, and team are properly protected.
- An IICRC-certified business must not only provide proof of insurance but also maintain that protection throughout its operating period. This includes retaining and sharing all documentation that relates to insurance coverage, as necessary. If a customer or IICRC representative requests proof, the business must provide it.
- Because every IICRC-certified company must provide proof of insurance, customers know coverage is not a concern in the event of an unforeseen accident
