IICRC Announces Two New PartnershipsNovember 18, 2022
The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has entered into new partnerships with two nonprofit organizations—the Armed Forces Housing Advocates (AFHA) and the Change the Air Foundation (CTA).
AFHA works to end substandard housing conditions for military families. Nearly 80% of the organization’s cases over the last year have involved homes with mold-related issues, with AFHA citing IICRC standards for mold remediation in many of their cases. CTA works to elevate public health by meaningfully addressing the impact water damage, mold, and other pollutants have on indoor air quality.
Representatives from the IICRC, AFHA, and CTA recently traveled to Washington, D.C., to meet with staff members from various Congressional offices and advocate for the Military Housing Readiness Council Act. The proposed legislation would create a 17-member council that would advise the U.S. Department of Defense on the best practices and policies for military housing.
IICRC is an ANSI-accredited standards-setting body for the flooring inspection, floor covering, and specialized fabric cleaning and disaster restoration industries. Organized in 1972, IICRC currently represents more than 5,700 certified firms and 54,000 certified technicians in 22 countries. For more information, visit www.iicrc.org.
