IICRC Summit Conference Adds CIRI Science Symposium
Las Vegas – June 12, 2017 – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is adding a Science Symposium to its Technical Conference, held Aug. 9 – 11, at the Big Sky Resort in Big Sky, Mont. The Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) will join the IICRC for a special discussion on a major new trend in cleaning science and disaster restoration and its impact on business strategy and hygiene practices.

The symposium titled, “The Microbiome and its Impact on Cleaning, Contracting and the Restoration Sciences,” will take place from 1-5 p.m. on Aug. 11 and will feature discussions by Dr. Gene Cole and Dr. Greg Whiteley.

“Believe it or not, human health and hygiene, the microbiome and small businesses are all interconnected,” said John Downey, editor of the IICRC’s Journal of Cleaning, Restoration & Inspection and coordinator of The Summit. “Understanding the world in which we live, as well as the bacteria and microorganisms within it, can help us to improve cleaning, hygiene and restoration practices within our industry.”

Whether the challenge is water damage, forensic cleanup, the cleaning and removal of antibiotic-resistant ESKAPE pathogens in healthcare facilities or simply cleaning the bathroom, the CIRI Science Symposium will discuss issues to help business owners achieve healthy outcomes, add value to their businesses and improve business sustainability.
