New Partnership Offers Additional Benefit for IICRC Certified Firms

VANCOUVER, Wash. – May 30, 2008 – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification recently formed a partnership with The Housekeeping Channel to further educate consumers seeking information for their home cleaning and restoration needs. The Housekeeping Channel is a Web site dedicated to keeping consumers up to date with the latest cleaning tips and techniques. The partnership facilitates the IICRC’s continuing efforts to educate homeowners about the benefits of contracting certified professionals.

Now, as an added benefit to Certified Firms, companies can register their IICRC Certification number when submitting their business information for The Housekeeping Channel’s Home & Cleaning Services Finder. Once verified through the IICRC’s database, the IICRC logo will appear next to their listing.

“By creating this opportunity for our Certified Firms, the IICRC is offering them another potential channel for new business,” said IICRC President Ruth Travis. “This partnership also continues to promote the IICRC as the industry guardian, reminding consumers of the importance of hiring Certified Firms and Technicians.”

To register on the Web site, Certified Firms can visit to create a username and password for the site or login using a previously created account. Once registered, users will click on the “Add a New Home & Cleaning Service” link. Users will be led to a form to enter their company information and their IICRC Certification number.

The Housekeeping Channel has an average of 50,000 unique visitors per month, of which 58 percent are women. In 2007, the site reached more than a half a million unique visitors and is on track to surpass that record in 2008. The site is known for offering practical home cleaning advice from cleaning experts, professional executive housekeepers and cleaning services, environmental service professionals, doctors and scientists, and organizational and time-management consultants.
