The IICRC Forms Two New Partnerships


The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and  Restoration Certification (IICRC) has formed new partnerships with two other non profit organizations: The Armed Forces Housing Advocates (AFHA) and the  Change the Air Foundation (CT A).  

AFHA is a group of volunteers who aim to end the substandard housing conditions  our military families are exposed to. They work tirelessly to provide comprehensive,  free-of-cost services that help residents navigate military housing issues, ensuring  their homes are safe and habitable. Nearly 80% of their cases over the last year  have involved homes with mold-related issues. Even before the partnership, AFHA  leaders referenced the ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard for Professional Mold  Remediation in many of these cases. The IICRC and AFHA will continue  collaborating on military housing-related problems to ensure that military members  and their families are safe in their homes.  

The Change the Air Foundation is a non-profit organization that works to  empower the world to achieve better health by meaningfully addressing the  impact water damage, mold, and other pollutants have on indoor air quality, With  the IICRC having multiple standards and certifications related to mold, water  damage, and indoor air quality, it only made sense for the two organizations to  come together and work on rectifying these issues.  

To help cultivate the newfound partnerships, individuals from the IICRC, AFHA,  and CT A traveled to Washington, D.C., to meet with staff members from various  Congressional offices and advocate for the Military Housing Readiness Council Act.  This bill would create a 17-member council that would advise the Department of  Defense on the best practices and policies for solving the problems seen  throughout military housing.
