IICRC emphasizes background checks

February 6, 2003
The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification acknowledges employee background checks as a necessary and cost-effective step in the cleaning and restoration industry’s hiring process.

“Even a minor employee infraction can hurt your company’s reputation or bank account,” said IICRC Vice Chairman Ruth Travis. “Risking an unsuspecting customer’s welfare or life is just plain gross negligence. When you tally the expense and time it takes to recruit, interview, hire and train an employee, it doesn’t make sense to cut corners when it comes to verifying background details.”
