Choose SERVPRO for IICRC-Trained and -Certified Employees in Lexington, Mass.
At SERVPRO of Lexington-Bedford, we pride ourselves on handling every job by the book. Which particular book depends on the job.
We follow the recommendations of a third party certification organization called the Institute for Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). The IICRC publishes the restoration standards for our industry. It approves our training programs and issues certifications to our employees when they pass certifying exams.
The S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Water Damage and Restoration is the most important standard published by the IICRC for our purposes. Water restoration can account for up to 80 percent of our revenue, and even fire restoration and mold remediation jobs often include water damage that we need to address.
Our crews learn the science of drying. They understand the impact of temperature and humidity on the drying process. They know our equipment and how to set it up properly to facilitate drying.
They understand safety on the job site as well and often must instruct clients in this area.
The S700 Standard for Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration guides our fire and soot cleanup efforts. Heat, soot, and smoke damage add another layer of complexity to the already challenging nature of cleaning in the wake of a disaster.
Again, safety is paramount. Fire damage is not always apparent on the surface. IICRC-approved training teaches fire restoration technicians the hazards to watch for and how to stay safe.
We reference The S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation for the correct procedures for treatment of microbial contamination.
Members of our team also hold additional certifications in the standards for trauma and crime scene cleanup and many other specialty restoration situations we may face.
Choosing the right restoration company following a disaster is imperative to avoid delays, get the job done correctly, and prevent secondary damage in the months and years ahead. Call SERVPRO of Lexington-Bedford for crews with the training, certifications, and experience to get your property restored correctly.
