Certified for Water Damage Restoration
At SERVPRO of West Seneca / Lancaster, it's important to us that we provide you with the highest standard of water damage restoration.
We do a lot to make that happen. One of the most important things is certifying our technicians with the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, or IICRC.
The IICRC sets industry standards for the entire field of restoration, and certifying with them is the best way to make sure that our technicians are trained on the latest science in water damage restoration.
Let's take a look at one of the most important certifications that our technicians get: the WRT.
Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT)
The Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) certification that the IICRC offers is one of their foundational certifications, but that doesn't mean that it's easy to get.
To achieve the WRT, our technicians must attend three days of classes totaling 19 full hours of instruction. After that, they must pass a rigorous exam to become fully certified.
The point of this instruction is to deepen the technicians understanding of the science and theory behind the work of water damage restoration. By learning the science, technicians are able to make intelligent choices about the best way to dry customers' structures and contents, which leads to better outcomes for everyone.
The WRT is only one of the certifications that our technicians achieve. The IICRC offers a variety of further certifications in water, fire, mold, structural drying and more. By continuing their education, our technicians ensure that they remain the best in the business.
