A-1 Carpet Service Certifications
The IICUC transitioned to the IICRC, then to Clean Trust and back to IICRC
A-1 Carpet Service does not currently pay dues to the IICRC as I believe they have transitioned away from what the founders originally intended the certification body should be.
That being said I still fully support the guidelines the IICRC distributes, I believe in training and certifications for every operator is hugely important and necessary.
I Think certification demonstrates a commitment to the profession and should be taken into account when choosing a professional carpet cleaning company.
The bottom line as to how things are done ultimately lies with the manufacturers, what they say goes, that simple. I believe The Carpet And Rug Institute has the pulse of the manufactures and represents them perfectly.
