I’m big on formal specialized education, but once you obtain a certain level, why they would require yearly recertification seems to be just based on greed. A recertification period I see that’s reasonable maybe off the cuff every 5-7 years but yearly?
My ASE certification in some categories is forever and other categories requires every couple of years but I can always say I'm an ase-certified mechanic

As for my other degrees they never go away I graduated I will always be a diagnostician for example and engineer

Recently there was much discussion about a 175 vs CRB.
I wanted to clarify for those people who are genuinely trying to learn.
If your professional and are concerned with doing things correctly, a 175 voids carpet mills warranties. Any side to side scrubbing voids Shaw and Mohawks warranty. Where as using a CRB doesn’t.
Professionals are hired to do things correctly. Just wanted to share that as I just spoke with the mill, and they were shocked there would even be a debate on how it can damage carpet fibers. They commended the Rookie :)
While there’s plenty of ways to clean the most professional method was lost in the subject from foolishness.
Show me in print where this is said, because if you heard this out of the mouth of a rep, then that holds no weight at all.... when I badmouth the crb its just ribbing you little guys who think the world revolves around it.
My personal position is while you are spending all that time bonneting the carpet I can steam clean it and be down the road...
I think both methods have their place.... 175 spins with the twist on carpeting,, the crb is the one that goes against the grain of the carpet.

any way if you listen to the IICRC they will probably recommend buttsex! since they are only after your money !!!

lol

lighten up homeboy !
If you stay on these forums , they are all about selling stuff to you and get everyone to ohhhh and ahhh at them and get yall to buy the stuff.

I cannot buy insurance for water damage restoration unless I am IICRC certified.

I won’t call it a scam, but it’s a bit of greed when master cleaners have to continue to pay for Certs every year. So far I’ve gained more then it cost. But every year recert? That’s bogus.

It varies from insurance to insurance some require nothing for water removal but yet require certification for water remediation
Some insurance require it for any sort of water whatsoever
It also varies from state-to-state
Just take the class show it to your provider and no one asks ever again

Essentially they say you don't have the knowledge no more if you don't pay

Yea I’m wanting to take Stone Pros class in a week or two. I’m hoping to take Shaw’s Class it’s free. This summer or fall I want to take upholstery and odor control with Doug Heifernan. He lives next to Warwick, and wants to take a tour with me.

Ive had 4 total calls for warranty cleanings from Mohawk and Shaw. Not once did they ask or even mention IICRC.

The homeowner had bought new carpet and was having issues, they contacted us and had us contact customer for cleaning. The only questions asked were whether it was HWE and if it was a truckmounted system. They didnt even ask about chems.

I've never had an insurance agent asked me if I'm IICRC lol
If their customers house is flooded they just want it taken care of by a professional

actually pulling out the viper 175s with black pads next week, did a 100yr old floor today. Gotta go back and strip the rest of the old wax off.

Its a yorkstone pattern and literally has swastikas in some of the tiles around the edges, along with free mason symbols.. not sure the meaning of them or why nobody ever wanted to cover them up.
