Just like in every other service industry, there are generalists and there are specialists. The only thing that usually sets them apart is the amount of knowledge they have about their industry and licenses or certifications. Within the restoration industry, there are some types of property damage that an owner will feel comfortable having a generalist, like a handyman, repair such as a loose-fitting on a shower head that is leaking. However, most property owners and generalists know when to pass the baton to a specialist, like Dry Kings Restoration, to repair professionally and properly. To serve as a foundation for our expertise, Dry Kings’ technicians are trained and certified as Water Damage Restoration Technicians by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
The IICRC is a leading institution within the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries and provides updated technical information, protocols, methodology and certifications. Its protocols and methodology are widely adopted by most restorers as the best and proven approach to repairing property damage ranging from upholstery and fabric restoration to water damage restoration. Further, the “IICRC Standards” are also accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). According to the IICRC, ANSI accreditation essentially means the “IICRC Standards” have been reviewed, debated, and agreed upon by multiple industry experts to be the most effective approach, and most importantly, will work exactly as intended to repair the damage. Technicians seeking certification not only attend classes to learn the step-by-step process of water damage remediation, but also learn about the different types of fans, extractors and other specialty equipment and how to use them, and how to provide a thorough water damage inspection among other topics. Of course, that knowledge is tested and requires re-certification every year as techniques and equipment advance.
For property owners, the most important benefit an IICRC certified technician can provide you is confidence! Being certified empowers a technician to recognize the best approach for effective drying and to make informed decisions based on their knowledge and experience on how to tackle unique and/or large water damages.
